Lotto Jackpot Sliced in Two
Updated: Monday 20th July 2015
The Lotto jackpot on Wednesday 10 February, which was worth £2.35 million, will have to be sliced in two because that’s how many tickets matched all six main numbers to win the top prize. The lottery results were 05, 07, 15, 37, 42 and 44, and the Bonus Ball was number 03. Each of the two jackpot-winning tickets is now worth £1,178,108, so at least a couple of people will now be thinking of ways to celebrate their success this weekend. The rest of us will be looking forward to playing for the £113 million EuroMillions jackpot on Friday!
A dozen players matched five of the six main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second tier prize of £60,415 each. Another 337 players matched five main numbers but not the Bonus Ball, and won £1,344 each. The lottery machine used for the draw was Guinevere, and because the jackpot was landed the jackpot for the next Lotto game this Saturday 13 February will be worth around £4.5 million.
Of course, before we get to the Lotto game on Saturday we have that massive rollover jackpot of £113 million to play for this Friday 12 February. When you consider that a regular jackpot weighs in at around £13 million, it is clear that tickets for the £113 million game offer fantastic value for money. Unsurprisingly, many players are choosing to buy more tickets than usual so that they can increase their chances of landing this latest EuroMillions monster!
You can buy lottery tickets online for both the EuroMillions game on Friday and for the next Lotto game on Saturday. You can buy as few or as many lottery tickets as you like, and those of you who were lucky enough to win a Lotto prize on Wednesday might want to reinvest some of your winnings in the opportunity to win even more.
However you decide to approach the lottery games this weekend, don’t forget that it’s Valentine’s Day on Sunday. Keep your fingers crossed and you just might be able to treat your partner to a brand new multi-million pound lifestyle! Good luck!Published: Thursday 11th February 2010
