Massive Lotto Jackpot Must Be Won!
The jackpot in the Lotto game on Saturday 13 September rolled over for the fourth time in a row, which means that there will be a quadruple rollover jackpot of around £13 million in the next game this Wednesday 17 September. UK Lotto rules do not allow a jackpot to roll over more than four times in succession, so if no player matches the six main numbers in the midweek game, the jackpot will roll down to the next highest prize tier that has winning players – usually the second tier. The quad rollover also means that the Lotto Raffle game will create 250 winners of £20,000 each.
The main numbers drawn in the Saturday Lotto game were 12, 15, 22, 29, 30 and 35, and the number 44 was drawn as the Bonus Ball. Four tickets won their owners a second tier prize worth £93,421 each by matching five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball number, and another 281 tickets won £1,129 each by matching five main numbers only. There were more than 339,000 smaller prizes landed in the main game, and another 200 prizes of £20,000 each were won in the Lotto Raffle game.
Whilst the top prize eluded Lotto players on Saturday night, it was a very different story in the Health Lottery game. One ticket matched all five main numbers (11, 13, 14, 18 and 22) to scoop the best possible prize of £100,000, and more than 18,000 consolation prizes were won at the lower levels – quite a few of them being landed thanks to the Bonus Ball number 09.
On Friday 12 September, the EuroMillions jackpot was worth £52.77 million. The results were 09, 13, 26, 31 and 33, and the Lucky Star numbers were 07 and 11. No ticket matched all of those numbers and so the jackpot rolled over once again to give players an estimated £58 million to play for this Tuesday.
Six EuroMillions tickets matched all five of the main numbers plus one of the Lucky Star numbers to win £200,043 each, and two of those tickets had been purchased by participants in the UK. Another 12 tickets won £33,340 each by matching five main numbers only, and over 2.95 million tickets won smaller prizes. The Millionaire Raffle number on Friday was SSQ150131.
With a jackpot of around £58 million to be won in the EuroMillions game this Tuesday and a quad rollover jackpot that is guaranteed to be paid out to Lotto players on Wednesday, there is plenty to get excited about in the week ahead. Visit this page to buy your lottery tickets online and good luck!
