Massive Midweek Lotto Jackpot!
Updated: Wednesday 3rd February 2016
The first Lotto draw of February will offer a massive midweek jackpot worth an estimated £22.9 million, and if that wasn’t enough to get excited about, one player is guaranteed to win £1 million in the associated Lotto Millionaire Raffle game. The hefty size of the main jackpot is due to the fact that rollovers have occurred in each of the last six draws, so perhaps someone will be able to match the six main numbers tonight and enjoy some life-changing luck in the seventh!
Whilst no UK player managed to win the top prize in last night’s EuroMillions game, one ticket that had been purchased in Spain did succeed, giving its owner a prize of €15 million, which equated to £11,373,000. The good news for players in this country is that three of five tickets that won £167,169 each at the second tier had been bought in the UK, as had two of seven tickets that matched the five main numbers only to win £39,802 each.
There were 62 tickets that won £2,246 each by matching four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars, and more than 1.99 million entries won smaller prizes. The total amount of cash won by participants in the UK was £2,542,123, and another £1 million was won by the player who matched the Millionaire Maker code, which was QBD711428.
The next EuroMillions game this Friday will once again offer a brand new top prize of around £11 million, and it will be interesting to see if the game will create its third jackpot winner in a row. In the meantime, the midweek Lotto draw this evening has to answer our previous question about whether or not it will reinforce the notion of the ‘lucky seven’.
As always, as well as the jackpot and the £1 million prize in the Lotto Millionaire Raffle game, every ticket purchased also gives players the chance to win one of 20 Lotto Raffle prizes of £20,000 each. The most overdue numbers for tonight’s Lotto game are 33, 45, 05, 16, 39 and 49, whilst the most common numbers are 23, 40, 38, 30, 33 and 44, so do watch out for those.
Will the midweek Lotto game tonight get your month off to the best possible start by making you a multi-millionaire? Enter your numbers early to secure your chance of winning, keep an eye on our Lotto Results page (or download one of our free Lotto apps) and you’ll soon find out!
