Rollovers for Lotto and EuroMillions
Both the Lotto and EuroMillions lottery jackpots have rolled over, giving players two massive jackpots to play for before the weekend. The Lotto rollover jackpot this Wednesday 23 February will be worth around £7.4 million, which is a fantastic sum for a midweek draw. And because the EuroMillions jackpot had already rolled over previously, there is a double rollover jackpot of around £36 million to play for in the next EuroMillions game this Friday 25 February. That’s £43.4 million up for grabs in these two games alone, so anyone who fancies winning big money will definitely want to get involved.
The Lotto results which eluded players last Saturday 19 February were 06, 16, 26, 32, 34 and 46, and the Bonus Ball was 33. Although nobody won the jackpot, 18 players did manage to match five main numbers and the Bonus Ball to land a consolation prize of £82,573 each. Another 627 players won £1,481 each by matching five main numbers only, and 521,742 players won £63 or £10 each for matching four or three main numbers respectively.
On Friday 18 February, the EuroMillions draw produced 02, 03, 15, 45 and 49 as the main numbers and 05 and 09 as the Lucky Star numbers. Again, although the jackpot wasn’t landed, several players did come close – in this case 6 players matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £360,606 each. 9 players won £68,223 each by matching five main numbers only, and another 95 players won £4,617 each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. One player in the UK matched the Millionaire Raffle number NKZ333918 to win £1,000,000.
Now that we have got not just a Lotto rollover but also a EuroMillions double rollover jackpot to play for this week, it may be worth buying yourself a few extra tickets to improve your chances of winning. The odds of winning any prize at all are around 1 in 54 for the Lotto game and around 1 in 24 for the EuroMillions game, so even if you don’t hit the jackpot in either game you could still win yourself a welcome consolation prize.
