Midweek Lottery Fever
Updated: Friday 10th October 2014
Midweek lottery players always have plenty to look forward to on a Wednesday, but this week there is even more excitement in the air than usual, and for several very good reasons. The first is that the newly revised Thunderball rules will give players a chance of winning of winning a top prize of £500,000 tonight – that’s twice as much as the previous Thunderball jackpot amount. And the second good reason for getting excited is because there is a double rollover jackpot worth around £10 million to play for in the Lotto game tonight. Add in the fact that we are also less than two days away from the chance to win around £86 in the EuroMillions game and this must be one of the best Wednesdays on record!
Those of you want to play the new version of the Thunderball game will need to select five main numbers from the range 1 to 39 and one Thunderball from the range 1 to 14. If you match all six of your selections (beating odds of 1 in 8,060,598) then you will win the jackpot of £500,000. Even if you don’t match all six numbers you could still emerge a winner because there are nine prize levels in total, and all you have to do to win the smallest prize is match the Thunderball itself!
Whilst the prospect of winning a new Thunderball jackpot of £500,000 is incredibly appealing, the notion of winning a £10 million Lotto jackpot is even more exciting. You will need to match 6 main numbers from the range 1 to 49 to accomplish that task (and beat odds of 1 in 13,983,816) but once again there are several other prize levels that you can qualify for by matching fewer than six numbers. As regular players will already be aware, if you match just three numbers you will collect £10!
If you win a major prize in the Thunderball or Lotto games then we congratulate you in advance, but if not we suggest you also have a go at the EuroMillions game this Friday 14 May. The EuroMillions jackpot has rolled over five times in a row, giving us an £86 million jackpot to play for. And don’t forget that UK players also get the chance to win a Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million!
Make no mistake, there are plenty of good reasons why midweek lottery fever is spreading across the country this week, so if you want to join in the fun and possibly even change your life forever at the same time, buy lottery tickets online today!Published: Wednesday 12th May 2010
