One Saturday Lotto Jackpot Winner
Starting the week by bringing you news of a fresh Saturday Lotto jackpot success has become something of a habit of late, and we are delighted to say that it continues to be the case today. Yes, that’s right, there was another jackpot landed on Saturday 2 March, and once again it was an outright win because just one ticket matched all six of the main numbers. Those numbers were 06, 09, 23, 31, 35 and 48, and the owner of the lucky ticket that caught the whole set is now worth the grand sum of £3,827,721.
21 tickets matched five main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball (which was 11) to win a second-tier consolation prize worth £56,083 each, whilst another 493 tickets won £1,493 each by matching five main numbers only. There were 517,854 tickets that won £60 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers, and the next Lotto jackpot this Wednesday 6 March will be worth around £2 million.
There was no jackpot success in the first EuroMillions game of the month, but the EuroMillions results on Friday 1 March did create over 2.56 million winners at the consolation prize levels. Three tickets matched all five main numbers (01, 11, 29, 36 and 42) as well as one Lucky Star (04 or 05) to win £371,873 each, and one of those tickets was bought by a player in the UK. Another Brit was among eight winners at the third-tier prize level, where each successful ticket won £46,484 by matching the five main numbers only.
48 tickets matched four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars to land a fourth-tier EuroMillions prize of £3,873 each, and another 1,101 tickets won £147 each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. All other winning players won smaller prizes of up to £82 each by matching fewer numbers.
All of that means we are once again in a very familiar position. First, we have a rollover jackpot to play for in the midweek EuroMillions game, and then we have a brand new Lotto jackpot to chase on Wednesday. The EuroMillions triple-rollover jackpot this Tuesday will be worth around £34 million, so demand for tickets is sure to be high.
