Lotto Jackpot Soars Even Higher
Lottery players who thought that the midweek jackpot was exciting should brace themselves, because the top prize rolled over on Wednesday, and that sets things up for a chance to win even more cash this Saturday 6 February. The jackpot is expected to weigh in at around £26.8 million, which means that anyone who won that prize outright would instantly be richer than many celebrities, including – according to published estimates – the likes of Dame Judy Dench, Leona Lewis and Charlotte Church.
Although no player won the jackpot in the midweek Lotto draw, more than 950,000 tickets won consolation prizes. Two tickets matched five of the six main numbers (which were 23, 25, 34, 36, 37 and 54) as well as the Bonus Ball number (49) to secure a second tier prize worth £34,021 each. There were 54 tickets that won £1,326 each by matching five main numbers only, and another 3,333 entries matched four numbers to win £138 each.
The smallest cash prize of £25 went to each of 82,815 tickets that matched three main numbers, and more than 870,000 tickets won their owners a Lucky Dip entry for the £26.8 million jackpot game this Saturday. In addition, 20 players won a Lotto Raffle prize worth £20,000 each, and one ticket matched the Lotto Millionaire Raffle code, which was GREY 6447 8315, to win £1 million.
We congratulate everyone who won a prize of any kind on Wednesday, but we are keen to see someone win even more this weekend. One of the most common numbers (23) made another appearance midweek, but none of the most overdue numbers were drawn as main numbers, so the ones to keep an eye on are still 33, 45, 05, 16, 39 and 49.
Before we get to the big Lotto game this Saturday, players can have a go at winning a brand new jackpot worth around £11 million in the Friday EuroMillions draw. The most overdue main numbers for that game are 42, 28, 13, 07 and 34, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 05 and 04. Even if nobody succeeds in winning the jackpot in the main game, one UK player is guaranteed to win £1 million thanks to the Millionaire Maker game, so someone is sure to get rich quick.
Will you be lucky enough to win yourself a celebrity-sized stack of cash this weekend? The only way to find out is to buy a ticket or two, keep your fingers crossed and wait for the results to come in. Good luck in both games and be sure to let us know if your lottery dream comes true!Published: Thursday 4th February 2016
