Lotto Won as EuroMillions Rolls
The Lotto jackpot on Saturday night was won by a single ticket that matched all six main numbers, and that was just as well because the top prize in the EuroMillions game on Friday had rolled over. The Lotto results for Saturday 19 July were 05, 09, 14, 25, 34 and 38, and the Bonus Ball number was 40. The jackpot had a final value of £3,689,940, so the lucky winner is now a millionaire three times over and will no doubt have plenty of fun deciding what to do with his or her new-found wealth. There will be a new jackpot to play for this Wednesday, but in the meantime the EuroMillions game on Tuesday will offer a top prize of around £17 million.
The jackpot winner wasn't the only player with something to celebrate in the Saturday night Lotto game, and there were seven tickets that matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball number to win £42,075 each. Another 286 tickets won £874 each by matching five main numbers only, and 15,909 tickets matched four main numbers to win £83 each. The smallest prize of £25 went to each of 287,403 tickets that matched three main numbers. In the Lotto Raffle game, a prize of £20,000 was won by each of 50 players.
Lotto players weren't alone in seeing a top prize landed at the weekend. In the Health Lottery game, one ticket won £100,000 by matching the five main numbers, which were 01, 04, 12, 15 and 21. More than 12,000 other tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers, with or without the Bonus Ball number 42.
The EuroMillions results on Friday 18 July were 01, 11, 29, 41 and 43, and the Lucky Star numbers were 03 and 11. Two tickets matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a second tier prize of £500,505 each, and one of those tickets had been purchased by a player in the UK. Another ticket purchased in this country was among three that matched five main numbers only to win £111,223 each. There were 41 tickets that won £4069 each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars, and the total number of prizes won was 2,055,749. The winning Millionaire Raffle number on Friday was XNC905757.
