One Ticket Scoops Lotto Jackpot
One ticket scooped the entirety of the Lotto jackpot on Saturday night, which means that the winning owner is now starting a brand new week with an extra £6,497,209 at their disposal. How long it will take for the winner to be introduced to their massive prize will depend on whether or not they have already lodged their claim, but if they acted promptly they would normally be able to start spending it at some point this week. The Lotto numbers for Saturday 8 February were 08, 25, 27, 36, 39 and 44, and the number 04 was the Bonus Ball.
There were eight Lotto tickets that matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball, and the second tier prize paid to each of those was worth £47,919. Another 285 tickets won £1,142 each by matching five main numbers only, and 307,867 tickets won £108 or £25 each by matching four or three main numbers, respectively. As if all of that wasn’t enough to get a few parties started, the Lotto Raffle game awarded a prize of £20,000 to each of 100 winners.
In the Health Lottery game a little later in the evening, one ticket matched all five main numbers to win a cool £100,000. The main numbers responsible for that success were 03, 07, 19, 31 and 41, and the Bonus Ball number, which came in very useful for quite a few consolation prize winners, was 14. There were over 15,000 tickets that managed to win a prize of some kind, so well done to everyone concerned.
All of the action described previously took place just 24 hours after a single ticket landed a EuroMillions jackpot worth £21,037,161. The EuroMillions results on Friday 7 February were 03, 17, 19, 46 and 47, with the numbers 09 and 10 appearing as the Lucky Stars. The winning ticket had been purchased in Spain, giving the country its second jackpot success of the year and bringing its 2014 tally equal to that of France.
Two tickets matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a second tier prize worth £553,637 each, and we are pleased to tell you that one of those tickets was bought by a UK player. There were 2,382,503 prizes won in total, and UK tickets collectively landed more than £3.57 million in prize money. The Millionaire Raffle number, which was worth £1 million to the UK ticket bearing the same, was TVZ813308.
Lottery players will now have a new EuroMillions jackpot of around £12 million to play for on Tuesday, and a new Lotto jackpot of around £2.2 million to pursue on Wednesday. Throw in the prizes available in the Millionaire Raffle and Lotto Raffle games and the amount that can be won soars even higher.
