Midweek Lotto Double Rollover
Updated: Thursday 24th April 2014
On average, midweek Lotto jackpots tend to be worth less than their Saturday counterparts, but that isn’t the case this week when National Lottery players will have the chance to win a double rollover jackpot worth around £10 million. That’s just £2 million less than a regular EuroMillions jackpot, but whilst the odds of winning the top prize in the EuroMillions game are 1 in 76,275,360, the odds of winning a Lotto jackpot are 1 in 13,983,816. This makes the midweek Lotto double rollover jackpot a very attractive opportunity and one that will almost certainly encourage most players to buy themselves an extra ticket or two.
The double rollover jackpot comes after nobody succeeded in matching all six main numbers in the Lotto draw on Saturday 31 July, when the lottery results were 10, 24, 30, 33, 40 and 45 and the Bonus Ball was number 16. As usual, plenty of consolation prizes were won regardless, with 17 players matching five of the main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win £90,775 each and 440 players matching five main numbers only to win £2,198 each. Over half a million players won smaller amounts of £81 or £10 each for matching four or three of the main numbers, respectively.
Because the odds of winning the Lotto jackpot are quite a lot better than the odds of winning a EuroMillions jackpot, Lotto double rollovers are rarer than EuroMillions double rollovers. This alone makes them well worth taking note of, but when a double rollover jackpot is on offer in a Wednesday draw it’s even better because we all have a great opportunity to add more than a little excitement to our Monday to Friday lives.
Just think, we’re at the start of yet another working week, but someone reading this news article might not need to work the whole week if their numbers come up on Wednesday. If you are the lucky winner of the double rollover jackpot then you might choose to take Thursday and Friday off, or maybe even quit your job on the spot. Of course, whether or not quitting work so suddenly is viable depends on the nature of your job and how much you love it, but if you win the jackpot then at least you won’t be in a position where you have to work for financial reasons.
To work, or not to work, that is the question. Buy lottery tickets online today and on Wednesday evening you will discover if you are the double rollover jackpot winner who has to answer it! Good luck!Published: Monday 2nd August 2010
