Lotto Jackpot Landed by Single Ticket
A single ticket successfully matched all six main numbers drawn in the Lotto game on Saturday 20 April to land a jackpot worth £4,136,552. The jackpot had been expected to be worth around £3.8 million, so the lucky winner is more than £330,000 better off than they might have imagined. The Lotto results responsible for this latest jackpot win were 08, 34, 38, 42, 44 and 46, and the Bonus Ball was 14. We don’t know who the Saturday Lotto winner is at this point, but we’re confident that they will be over the moon with their win, and rightly so!
The second-tier prize level was occupied by 11 tickets that were able to match five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball, and each of those tickets won £115,707. There were 444 tickets that won £1,791 each by matching five main numbers only, and 429,390 tickets won £77 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers. The next Lotto jackpot this Wednesday 24 April is expected to be worth around £2 million, which would be a fantastic midweek pick-me-up for anyone lucky enough to win it.
EuroMillions players who had hoped to win a jackpot on Friday were disappointed because none of the tickets entered for the game were able to catch all seven of the numbers drawn. The good news was that 2,181,195 tickets managed to win a consolation prize of some kind, and UK players alone won a staggering £3,092,173. The EuroMillions results for Friday 19 April were 01, 08, 42, 46 and 48, along with the Lucky Star numbers 04 and 07.
The biggest winners in the main EuroMillions game were the owners of eight tickets that matched the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars for a prize of €192,916 each. 10 tickets won £34,673 each by matching the five main numbers only, and 52 tickets matched four of the main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars to win £3,333 each. The biggest winner of all in the UK on Friday night was the player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number SMF223129 to win the nice round sum of £1,000,000.
Congratulations to everyone who succeeded in winning themselves a cash prize over the last few days, and to those who didn’t win big, don’t despair. The EuroMillions rollover jackpot this Tuesday 23 April is expected to be worth around £18 million, so visit this page to buy your tickets online and your dreams of lottery riches may soon come true!
