One Ticket Wins Ten Million
One ticket won more than £10 million in the double rollover Lotto draw on Wednesday 21 September by matching all six main numbers. Those numbers were 11, 15, 32, 33, 37 and 39, and the Bonus Ball – which isn’t required to win the jackpot but can be very useful to those who come close – was 28. We don’t yet know if the winner of the jackpot winning ticket is aware of their success yet, but if not they are in for quite a surprise when they discover that they have won £10,348,518. Naturally, we will bring you further details about this winner if he or she chooses to go public.
Five Lotto players made good use of the Bonus Ball mentioned a few moments ago by matching it along with five main numbers to win a second-tier prize of £200,591 each. As if to demonstrate just how valuable the Bonus Ball can be, 251 players matched also five main numbers but without the Bonus Ball to win £2,497 each. 335,023 players won either £82 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers, respectively.
In the Irish Lotto game on Wednesday 21 September the jackpot was worth €10 million but no player matched all of the numbers required to win it and so it rolls over to the next draw this Saturday. The Irish Lotto results were 01, 09, 16, 22, 23 and 44, and the Bonus Ball was 41. The next jackpot will be worth around €11 million.
As for our own Lotto game, the jackpot on offer this Saturday 24 September will be worth an estimated £4.2 million. The most overdue numbers (for those who take an interest in such lottery statistics) are 12, 08, 21, 25, 13 and 16.
Before both of those Lotto games the EuroMillions game on Friday 23 September gives players the chance to win a rollover jackpot of £23 million. The most overdue main numbers for that game are 43, 41, 29, 11 and 40, and the most overdue Lucky Stars are 06 and 05.
We can’t think of a better way to end the week than by winning a lottery fortune, and those of you who agree can buy lottery tickets online here for all three big-money games just mentioned. Enjoy the games and good luck!
