Lotto Jackpot Soars as Brit Wins EuroMillions!
Updated: Tuesday 29th August 2017
The Lotto jackpot rolled over for the third draw in a row last Saturday night, and that means players in the next game this Wednesday 30 August will have the chance to land a top prize worth around £9.8 million.
There was no such rollover in the EuroMillions game on Friday, because one British ticket succeeded in matching all seven of the numbers drawn to win a jackpot worth £15,735,200. The EuroMillions results which delivered the UK jackpot win on Friday 25 August were 01, 05, 07, 15 and 47, along with the Lucky Star numbers 09 and 12.
Assuming they are already aware of their good fortune, the UK jackpot winner will probably be spending their Bank Holiday Monday wondering whether or not to go public with their win. Whatever their decision, we congratulate them on their success, and wish them the very best for the future.
More than 1.92 million smaller prizes were won by EuroMillions players on Friday, and more than 419,000 of those were landed by players in the UK, including one of two tickets which matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to secure a second tier prize of £304,858 each. In addition, a prize of £1 million was won by two players who matched one of the Millionaire Maker codes, which were HVQR65535 and TVQP66669. As always, the full results schedule for Friday’s game can be found on our EuroMillions Results page.
The next EuroMillions game this Tuesday 29 August will once again be worth an estimated £15 million, but Lotto on Wednesday is also one that will interest anyone who dreams of becoming a multimillionaire overnight. The Lotto jackpot is much easier to win than its EuroMillions cousin as far as probabilities are concerned, and the associated Lotto Millionaire Raffle and Lotto Raffle games will create one winner of £1 million and twenty winners of £20,000 each, respectively.
The most overdue numbers to look out for or consider playing as we approach the next Lotto game are 33, 48, 53, 22, 31 and 37, and the most common numbers are 41, 14, 54, 52, 38 and 37. Those of you who want to increase your chances of winning a prize without breaking the bank may want to consider playing as part of a lottery syndicate, and doing that is refreshingly simple. All you have to do is choose your syndicate and keep your fingers crossed that Lady Luck will do the rest!
However you choose to play the lottery games coming up over the next few days, good luck with your numbers and remember to give us a shout if you win big!Published: Monday 28th August 2017
