Midweek Lotto Jackpot Must Be Won!
The last ever Lotto game before the new rules come into force will take place tonight, so the current jackpot, which is expected to be worth around £4.3 million, will be won even if no player matches all six main numbers. Hopefully the jackpot will be won outright in the usual manner, but if that doesn’t happen the jackpot prize will be rolled down to the next highest tier that does have winners – most probably the second tier. Whatever happens, the jackpot simply must be won!
There was no top prize winner in the EuroMillions game last night, so the £11 million jackpot rolled over to the next game on Friday. The EuroMillions results for Tuesday 6 October were 11, 20, 22, 29 and 32, and the Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 08. There were three tickets that matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a second tier prize worth £233,306 each, and we are delighted to report that all three of those tickets had been purchased right here in the UK.
The third tier saw 10 tickets win their owners £23,330 each by matching five main numbers only, and another 29 tickets won £4,022 each by matching four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars. The total number of consolation prizes won last night was 1,602,710, and the total amount of cash landed by UK participants was £2,625,339. In addition, a further £1,000,000 was won by the UK player who matched the Millionaire Maker code, which was ZLS945307.
EuroMillions players will have a rollover jackpot worth an estimated £17 million to play for this Friday 9 October, but right now it is the midweek Lotto game that is getting the most attention, and with a £4.3 million jackpot that must be won, we can appreciate why.
For one last time, the odds of winning the Lotto jackpot tonight will be 1 in 13,983,816, and you can beat those odds by choosing 6 numbers from the range 1 to 49 and matching all of them. Buy multiple tickets and you can increase your odds of winning the jackpot or any other prize, and every entry purchased will also give you a chance of winning any of 50 Lotto Raffle prizes worth £20,000 each.
The most overdue Lotto numbers right now are 34, 13, 38, 47, 16 and 01, so do look out for those if you enjoy keeping an eye on the stats and good luck with your tickets!Published: Wednesday 7th October 2015
