Midweek Lotto Rollover Jackpot
Lottery players have an exciting rollover jackpot with an estimated value of around £5.7 million to try and win in the midweek Lotto game this evening, and the only thing separating that top prize and anyone reading these words is the ability to match all six main numbers. Participants who don't succeed in doing that can of course still win a consolation prize for matching three or more main numbers, and there will also be 50 guaranteed Lotto Raffle prize winners who will each go to bed tonight with an extra £20,000 to their name!
The rollover jackpot that is up for grabs tonight will please lottery enthusiasts who saw the top prize in the EuroMillions game elude players once again last night. The EuroMillions results for Tuesday 24 February were 03, 25, 28, 34 and 50, along with the Lucky Star numbers 01 and 11. The jackpot, which had rolled over five times previously, had a final value of £43 million, and it will be worth an estimated £51 million in the next game.
Three tickets (one of which had been purchased in the UK) won their owners £293,674 each by matching all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers. Another three tickets (again, one of which had been entered by a UK player) won £97,891 each by matching the five main numbers only.
The fourth tier saw 39 tickets win £3,765 each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers, and there were over 1.83 million smaller prizes won at the lower levels. The combined value of consolation prizes won by UK participants was in excess of £2.6 million, and the Millionaire Maker game awarded an additional prize of £1 million to the player who matched the code YMV937351.
The next EuroMillions game will fall on the last Friday of the month, and that makes it a Mega Friday where the Millionaire Maker draw will create 10 guaranteed winners of £1 million each. We will bring you more news about that tomorrow, and we will also tell you about the EuroMillions £74 Million Superdraw that is coming up on Friday 6 March. In the meantime, click here to play for the £5.7 million rollover jackpot in tonight's midweek Lotto game and good luck with your numbers!
