Lotto Landed as EuroMillions Rolls
The jackpot in the Saturday night Lotto game was landed by two lucky tickets, and that was just as well because the top prize in the EuroMillions game rolled over for the fourth draw in a row. The top prize was also landed in the Health Lottery game, the Lotto Raffle created 100 big winners and the Millionaire Raffle game bestowed millionaire status on another lucky player. In other words, it was a life-changing weekend for quite a few lottery enthusiasts. If you haven't yet checked your tickets you may want to do so now as we run through the results game by game...
Starting with the EuroMillions game on Friday 16 May, the main numbers drawn were 23, 26, 29, 37 and 40, and the numbers 03 and 04 were selected as the Lucky Stars. One ticket purchased outside the UK matched the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a massive second tier prize worth €1,515,237, and six other tickets – two of which were bought by UK players – matched five main numbers only to win £58,982 each.
The total number of prizes won in the EuroMillions game was 2,330,242, and the total amount of cash won by lottery players in the UK was £3,028,618, whilst an additional £1,000,000 was won by the player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number CGF144036. The jackpot that rolled over on Friday was worth £33.97 million, so the next game this Tuesday 20 May will offer the even bigger estimated sum of £39 million.
In the Lotto game on Saturday 17 May the winning numbers were 10, 19, 20, 33, 43 and 46, and the Bonus Ball was 25. The jackpot was worth £7,047,302 and, as we said earlier, two tickets matched all six main numbers to win their owners an equal share worth £3,523,651 each. Four tickets matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win £104,798 each at the second tier, and 251,313 prizes were won at the lower levels. In addition, and because the main game was offering a rollover jackpot, the Lotto Raffle game awarded a prize of £20,000 to each of 100 winners. The Lotto game this Wednesday 21 May will offer a brand new jackpot worth around £2.1 million.
The main numbers drawn in the Health Lottery game on Saturday were 01, 14, 21, 28 and 39, and the Bonus Ball was 05. There was one ticket that matched all five main numbers to win the £100,000 top prize, and consolation prizes went to over 13,000 other tickets.
Congratulations to everyone who won a prize of any kind over the last few days, and good luck to everyone who intends to try and do even better in the EuroMillions game this Tuesday. Click here to buy your tickets online and if your numbers come up you could soon be £39 million richer!
