Midweek Lotto Jackpot Split Four Ways
The midweek Lotto jackpot of £2,059,080 had to be split four ways on Wednesday night because that was the number of tickets that matched all six main numbers drawn. The Lotto results for Wednesday 3 October were 03, 09, 11, 29, 45 and 46, and the number selected as the Bonus Ball was 19. Each of the four winning tickets now has a value of £514,770, and because the previous Lotto jackpot was also shared by multiple tickets they bring the total number of top prize winners to nine in the space of just two draws.
As in the previous game on Saturday, 13 tickets were able to match five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second-tier prize, and the value of that prize on Wednesday was £48,735 to each winner. 327 tickets won £1,210 each by matching five main numbers only, and another 346,476 tickets matched four or three main numbers to win £47 or £10 each. Now that the midweek jackpot has been won, the next Lotto game this Saturday 6 October is expect to be worth around £4 million. Whether that game will be the third in a row that creates multiple jackpot winners is something that remains to be seen.
The Lotto game wasn’t the only one to give players a chance of winning big money last night because the Thunderball game was also played. The results for the Thunderball draw on Wednesday 3 October were 10, 12, 15, 29 and 39, and the Thunderball itself was 11. Those of you who have eagle eyes will notice that two of those numbers were the same as the numbers drawn in the Lotto game, but that didn’t help any ticket to win the top Thunderball prize of £500,000.
Two tickets matched all five main numbers to win a second-tier Thunderball prize of £5,000 each and 39 tickets won £250 each by matching four main numbers plus the Thunderball. The total number of prizes won in this game was 156,297.
Lottery players now have a EuroMillions rollover jackpot of around £21 million to play for this Friday 5 October. Will a ticket purchased in the UK succeed in matching all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars, or will the EuroMillions jackpot roll again?
