Record EuroMillions Win Claimed
It has been reported in the British tabloid press that the recent record EuroMillions win of over £113 million (see EuroMillions Sets New UK Record) has at last been claimed by a small syndicate of four from Coventry. Previously there had been speculation that the winning ticket had been lost, with plenty of players calling the National Lottery organiser to say exactly that, so if the prize has now been claimed then that is very good news. Unfortunately, it has also been reported that the winners have elected to remain anonymous, so no further details are available at this time.
The record EuroMillions winners will no doubt be celebrating for some time, and two more lottery winners who will be doing the same are the owners of the two lottery tickets that landed the Lotto jackpot on Saturday 23 October. The lottery results for that draw were 02, 03, 14, 29, 35 and 42, and the Bonus Ball was 12. The jackpot was worth £13,444,188, so each of the winning tickets is now worth £6,722,094 and hopefully the owners of those tickets will come forward promptly to make their claims.
12 players matched five of the six main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second tier Lotto prize of £131,489 each. That is nothing close to winning a million, but it should certainly help the winners concerned enjoy a few of life’s little luxuries, and maybe a few of them will even decide to take themselves somewhere warm for the fast-approaching winter.
One of the six main numbers that was drawn in the Lotto double rollover game last Saturday (42) was previously highlighted as one of the number most overdue to be drawn. For those players who would like to include one or more overdue numbers in the next draw, we can tell you that those numbers are now 37, 13, 15, 01, 07 and 49. Talking of the next draw, it takes place on Wednesday 27 October and will offer a jackpot of around £2.4 million.
After the midweek Lotto game there will be a £12 million jackpot available in the EuroMillions draw on Friday 29 October. That’s because the rollover jackpot last Friday was, like the Saturday Lotto, shared by two winning tickets. Neither one of those belonged to a player in the UK, but there is always next time!
Buy lottery tickets online today for the midweek Lotto, the Friday night EuroMillions game and – if you’re feeling particularly organised – for the Saturday Lotto game too. The more games you participate in, and the more entries you play in each, the more chance you have of becoming one of the next big winners!Monday 25th October 2010
