Lotto Plus 5 Bows Out
The last ever Lotto Plus 5 draw took place last night, and for those of you who haven’t yet checked your numbers, we can tell you that they were 22, 24, 28, 34, 37 and 41, with the number 14 being drawn as the Bonus Ball. It would have been nice to report that somebody won the top prize in the final draw, but that didn’t happen. There were no second tier prize winners either, but more than 6,000 tickets won prizes at the lower levels. And with that, after 688 draws, it was goodbye, Lotto Plus 5!
Whilst the final Lotto Plus 5 draw was definitely worth paying attention to last night, players also had the first EuroMillions game of the week to enjoy. The EuroMillions results for Tuesday 1 October were 19, 23, 25, 44 and 48, and the Lucky Star numbers were 08 and 09. No ticket entered for the game was able to win the £12.5 million jackpot that was on offer, but there were four tickets that matched all five main numbers plus one of the Lucky Stars to win £174,787 each.
There were five tickets that matched the five main numbers without either Lucky Star to win £46,609 each. The fourth tier saw 33 tickets win £3,531 each by matching four main numbers plus both of the Lucky Stars, and the total number of EuroMillions prizes won last night was 1,606,500. As always, one player won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number, and that number on Tuesday was ZJM463730. The EuroMilions game this Friday will now offer a rollover jackpot worth around £21 million.
We still have the big Lotto relaunch event on Saturday to look forward to, and we will be previewing that in detail tomorrow. Meanwhile, the last Lotto game in its existing format will take place tonight (Wednesday 2 October) with a top prize of around £2 million which must be won, regardless of whether or not there is a jackpot winner! Should there be no Match 6 winner tonight, the jackpot will roll down to the next winning prize tier - usually the Match 5 and the Bonus Ball - and be shared equally between each winner.
Although tonight’s Lotto game isn’t offering the biggest jackpot of the week, it is your last chance to play before the new rules come into force, so click here to buy your tickets and this time tomorrow you just might be £2 million richer, even if you don't hit the jackpot! Good luck!
