Lotto Jackpot Split Three Ways
The midweek Lotto jackpot had to be split three ways last night after that many tickets succeeded in matching all six of the main numbers drawn. The jackpot had a final value of £6,175,986 thanks to a rollover in the previous game, so each of the three lucky winners will now end the month of September £2,058,662 richer than they were when it began. The final game of the month will take place this Saturday 28 September, when the jackpot is expected to be worth around £3.6 million.
For those of you who haven’t yet checked your numbers, the Lotto results for Wednesday 25 September were 05, 07, 20, 24, 30 and 41, with the number 37 being selected as the Bonus Ball. Five tickets matched that Bonus Ball, as well as five of the main numbers, to win a second-tier consolation prize worth £126,582 each. There were 308 tickets that matched five main numbers only to win £1,284 each, and another 315,568 tickets matched four or three of the main numbers to win £53 or £10 each.
The next Lotto game will be the last Saturday draw under the current rules and at the current price. Then, on Saturday 5 October, the new Lotto changes will be introduced, and a special draw will offer a guaranteed jackpot of £10 million and 1,000 guaranteed Lotto Raffle prizes of £20,000 each. We are obviously looking forward to that big event, but it also makes sense to make the most of the existing game whilst we still have it.
Yesterday, we highlighted some interesting statistics for the big £55 million EuroMillions game this Friday, so today it makes sense to do the same for the Lotto draw this Saturday. The most common Lotto numbers are 44, 38, 40, 39, 23 and 33, and the most overdue Lotto numbers are 10, 44, 32, 16, 25 and 34. None of those numbers have any greater chance of being drawn than any others, but including one or more of them on your ticket certainly won’t harm your chances, either.
