Lotto Won – Will EuroMillions be Next?
Yesterday we reminded players that lottery games make it possible for anyone who participates to experience a massive improvement in their financial lives. As if on cue, one player managed to do exactly that in the midweek Lotto game last night, so someone in the UK has cause to celebrate like they’ve never celebrated before thanks to their £2.44 million jackpot win. Now the big question is whether someone will be able to follow up by winning the £81 million jackpot that is on offer in the EuroMillions game this Friday.
The Lotto results for Wednesday 19 December were 04, 26, 33, 41, 48 and 49, and the Bonus Ball number was 19. It is of course far too early to know who won the jackpot, but we congratulate whoever the lucky player was and hope that they will be able to enjoy the few remaining Christmas shopping days to the full. Of course, should the winner not make their claim fast enough for that to happen, the January sales are already on the horizon...
11 tickets matched five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball to win a consolation prize of £68,507 each, and 176 other tickets won £2,676 each by matching five main numbers only. Over 229,000 tickets won smaller prizes of £92 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers, and the next Lotto jackpot this Saturday will be worth an estimated £4 million.
Over in Ireland, the Irish Lotto results last night were 08, 23, 24, 27, 35 and 43, and the Bonus Ball number was 30. No ticket matched all six main numbers and so the €2 million jackpot rolled over, but three tickets succeeded in matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win a second-tier prize of €25,000 each. The total number of prizes won in the Irish Lotto game was 24,332 and the jackpot in the next game will be worth around €3.5 million.
With the midweek games out of the way, it is now time to focus on the even bigger EuroMillions game this Friday. Just seven numbers stand between you and a life-changing jackpot worth £81 million, so if you fancy having a go at becoming the next big winner, click here to buy your tickets. Enjoy the game and good luck!
