Midweek Millionaires Guaranteed!
Updated: Wednesday 6th May 2015
Every midweek Lotto Raffle game throughout the month of May is guaranteed to create one winner of £1 million, no matter what happens in the main Lotto game. The creation of one millionaire every Wednesday night in May is in addition to the usual Lotto Raffle prizes, so another 50 players are also guaranteed to win £20,000 each. Factor in the jackpot in the Lotto game itself – tonight’s top prize is estimated to be worth around £2.2 million – and midweek draws in May are more tantalising than ever!
The top prize in the first EuroMillions game of the week eluded players for the third draw in a row, so the next draw on Friday 8 May will offer a triple rollover jackpot worth around £29 million. A jackpot rollover isn’t particularly unusual in the EuroMillions game, but what was rather more unusual was the fact that the second tier was also completely vacant of winners, with no ticket in any nation matching all five main numbers as well as a Lucky Star number.
The EuroMillions results on Tuesday 5 May were 01, 10, 17, 20 and 42, with 08 and 09 appearing as the Lucky Stars. Four tickets that had been purchased outside the UK managed to match all five main numbers to win €339,051 each, and those were the biggest winners in the main game. Another 32 tickets – 11 of which had been bought in this country – won £4,024 each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
There were more than 1.71 million consolation prizes won in total, and players in the UK collectively landed over £1.91 million. Another £1 million was won by the UK player who matched the Millionaire Maker code QSR264234.
Lottery fans can now look forward to playing for that £29 million triple rollover jackpot in the next EuroMillions game on Friday, but first we have the midweek Lotto and Lotto Raffle games to enjoy. Enter your numbers online here for your chance to become the first guaranteed midweek millionaire of the month and remember to let us know if you win big!Published: Wednesday 6th May 2015
