Lotto Jackpot Split Three Ways
The Lotto jackpot on Saturday 22 January had a final value of £4,467,732, and that sum was split three ways thanks to the same number of tickets matching all six main numbers. This followed the splitting two ways of the double rollover jackpot on Wednesday 19 January, so last week saw a total of five Lotto tickets qualify for seven figure wins. Throw in two winning tickets for the EuroMillions rollover jackpot on Friday 21 January (each worth £24,708,723) and a £1,000,000 Millionaire Raffle win on the same day and it is apparent that last week’s National Lottery games helped quite a few people to get rich quick!
The winning Lotto numbers on Saturday were 04, 14, 18, 24, 41 and 44, and the Bonus Ball was 25. Splitting the jackpot three ways means that each winning ticket now has a value of £1,489,244. Another 7 players won £196,383 each by matching five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball. 925 players matched five of the main numbers but no Bonus Ball to win £928 each, which illustrates just how valuable that Bonus Ball can be! In total, 626,953 Lotto prizes were won last Saturday, and the jackpot for the next draw on Wednesday 26 January will be worth around £2.4 million.
As far as the EuroMillions draw was concerned, the results on Friday 21 January were 03, 11, 13, 18 and 21, and the Lucky Star numbers were 04 and 05. The jackpot (which has rolled over from the previous week) was worth £24,708,723, so the two winning tickets are now worth £12,354,361 each. 17 players matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £130,178 each and another 30 players matched the five main numbers only to win £20,934 each. More than 2.34 million EuroMillions prizes were overall.
