Midweek Lotto Fever Soars
Midweek lottery draws are occasionally perceived as being in some way inferior to their weekend cousins, but that certainly isn’t the case this week because the midweek Lotto draw tonight offers a double-rollover jackpot of around £10.7 million. Whilst consecutive rollovers are fairly common in games like EuroMillions, where the odds of hitting the jackpot are lengthy (1 in 116.5 million), they are far less common in the Lotto game where the odds of winning the top prize are so much better (1 in 13.9 million). Think about things in those terms and it is little wonder that midweek Lotto fever is sweeping the nation!
With such a large amount of cash up for grabs in the Lotto game tonight, many players will be doing their utmost to improve their chances of winning in any way possible. Some will be joining syndicates that they already know about and others will be deciding that this is as good a time as any to form their own (we explain how to do that in our article on How to Start a Lottery Syndicate). Plenty more players will simply choose to buy themselves more lottery tickets and, because each Lotto ticket has a 1 in 54 chance of winning any prize at all, that approach makes as much sense as any other.
Anyone who wants to buy themselves a few more tickets for tonight’s Lotto draw may be wondering which numbers to enter. The easy solution to this dilemma is to buy Lucky Dip tickets or allow our Number Generator to pluck random selections from the ether. If you would prefer to be inspired by our Lotto Statistics then we can tell you that the most overdue numbers right now are 12, 20, 46, 17, 38 and 08.
However you decide to play the Lotto game tonight, be sure to buy your tickets online. With midweek Lotto fever sweeping the nation, offline retail outlets are going to be busier than Santa’s Grotto on Christmas Eve! Enjoy the game and good luck.
