Lottery Rollovers All Round
There were lottery rollovers all round last Friday and Saturday when no tickets managed to win the jackpots in any of the EuroMillions, UK Lotto or Irish Lotto games. Fortunately, no jackpot wins in the most recent draws means that we have even bigger jackpots to play for in the first half of this week. The EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday 24 April will be worth around £26 million, and then on Wednesday the UK Lotto and Irish Lotto games will offer jackpots of around £6.7 million and €2.5 million, respectively.
On Friday 20 April the main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game were 03, 06, 29, 32 and 41, and the Lucky Star numbers were 10 and 11. We have already said that the jackpot itself (which was worth £21.34 million) rolled over, but six tickets (unfortunately, none of them purchased in the UK) did succeed in matching the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a prize of €275,785 each. A dozen tickets (three purchased in the UK) matched five main numbers only to win £32,222 each, and the Millionaire Raffle number on Friday was VLF874510.
In the UK Lotto game on Saturday 21 April the six main numbers drawn were 10, 23, 25, 34, 41 and 47, and the number 30 was drawn as the Bonus Ball. As in the EuroMillions game, the jackpot rolled over but there were six winning tickets at the second-tier prize level, and those tickets won £232,066 each by matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball. 351 tickets won £3,279 each by matching five of the main numbers only and 468,342 tickets matched either four or three main numbers to win £85 or £10 each.
The Irish Lotto results for Saturday 21 April were 06, 12, 26, 27, 32 and 38, and the Bonus Ball was 44. There were two winning tickets at the second-tier prize level and each of those won €25,000 after matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball. 49 tickets matched five main numbers only to win €1,538 each and over 40,000 other tickets won smaller prizes of €172 or less for matching four or three main numbers, with or without the Bonus Ball.
All of that brings you bang up to date with the most popular lottery games here in the UK, so you can now turn your attention to having a go at winning big over the next few days. Buy your lottery tickets today and good luck!
