Lotto Fans Pursue Midweek Triple Rollover Jackpot
Updated: Wednesday 29th June 2016
Lotto fans with aspirations to win big are today pursuing a midweek triple rollover jackpot which is expected to be worth a massive £11.1 million. Tonight’s Lotto draw will be the last one in June, and could provide a very happy ending to a month which has seen just one ticket match all six main numbers. Eight players have won £1 million each in June thanks to the Lotto Millionaire Raffle game, and another guaranteed winner tonight will ensure that nine players will begin July seven-figures richer than they were this time last month.
Lottery players who were hoping to land last night’s brand new EuroMillions jackpot were scuppered by their inability to match all five main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars. The EuroMillions results on Tuesday 28 June were 26, 32, 37, 43 and 49, with 04 and 05 appearing as the Lucky Star numbers, and the final value of the jackpot that proved elusive was £12,448,500.
Players in the UK didn’t win any prizes at the second or third tier, but eight tickets purchased elsewhere won €110,915 each by matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star, and another four overseas entries matched five main numbers only to win €73,943 each. Brits fared much better at the fourth tier, as four of the 22 tickets that won £4,604 each had been purchased in this country.
Despite the absence of UK winners at the highest levels, more than £1.62 million was landed by UK participants, and the total number of prizes won by players everywhere exceeded 1.23 million. The biggest prize landed by a player in this country came in the Millionaire Maker game, where a prize of £1 million went to the owner of the ticket bearing the code QPL327042.
The next EuroMillions game will now offer a rollover jackpot worth an estimated £19 million, but not before tonight’s midweek Lotto draw gives players the chance to win £11.1 million.
