Midweek Lotto Jackpot Rollover
The midweek Lotto jackpot rolled over on Wednesday night after none of the tickets purchased for the game proved able to match all six main numbers. The jackpot was worth £2.94 million – which was more than £440,000 bigger than estimated – so the next game this Saturday will offer a top prize of around £7 million. The rollover also means that there will be an extra 50 Lotto Raffle prizes available in the next game, bringing the total number of £20,000 winners to 100.
Those of you who haven’t yet checked your tickets will find all of the winning Lotto Raffle numbers on our Lotto Results page. As far as the Lotto game itself is concerned, the six main numbers drawn on Wednesday 30 October were 20, 23, 26, 29, 34 and 41, and the Bonus Ball was 32. Because the jackpot rolled over, the biggest winners were the owners of three tickets that matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to take down a second tier prize of £78,482 each.
At the third tier prize level, 86 tickets matched five main numbers only to win £2,324 each, and another 5,482 tickets won £192 each by matching four main numbers. There were 113,468 tickets that matched three main numbers to win £25 each, bringing the total amount of prize money won to an impressive £4,324,554. Not bad for a midweek draw in which the jackpot rolled over!
The top prize was just as elusive as the Lotto jackpot in the Health Lottery game last night. The main numbers drawn were 09, 12, 23, 34 and 45, and the Bonus Ball number was 20. More than 4,800 tickets won a consolation prize of some kind, so there were plenty of players who emerged from the game with more cash than they had beforehand.
Over in Ireland, the Irish Lottery results for Wednesday were 09, 14, 15, 22, 24 and 43, and the number 40 was drawn as the Bonus Ball. No player won the €2 million jackpot, but one ticket matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second tier prize worth €25,000. More than 24,000 other tickets won smaller prizes, and the next Irish Lotto game will offer a jackpot of around £2.5 million.
All of that sets things up nicely for an exciting start to the month of November. With a £12 million EuroMillions jackpot to play for on Friday, a £7 million Lotto jackpot on Saturday and 100 Lotto Raffle prizes of £20,000 up for grabs, you won’t want to miss your chance to win big. Visit this page to enter your numbers online for all of those games and have a Happy Halloween weekend!
