Saturday Lotto Jackpot Landed!
Updated: Thursday 10th April 2014
The Lotto jackpot on Saturday 13 October was worth a whopping £7,105,939 and we are delighted to report that it was successfully landed by a single ticket. The identity of the person who owns the ticket isn’t yet known, but what we do know is that they defied the odds to match all six main numbers. For those of you who haven’t yet seen them, the Lotto results for Saturday were 14, 26, 30, 32, 36 and 48, and the Bonus Ball number was 15.
10 Lotto tickets matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball number to win a consolation prize worth £148,215 each, and 370 tickets won £2,503 each by matching five main numbers only. There were 22,762 tickets that matched four main numbers to win £89 each and 439,378 tickets that won £10 each. Lotto players can now look forward to a brand new jackpot of around £2.2 million this Wednesday.
In the Health Lottery game that also took place on Saturday, one ticket matched the five numbers 02, 04, 09, 10 and 21 to win the top prize of £100,000. Another player won £100,000 thanks to having the Hot Ticket number PHLCBX503387, and more than 12,800 other prizes were won in the game. The first Win Wednesdays draw takes place this Wednesday 17 October so Health Lottery players can now get just as excited about the middle of the week as they do about the weekends.
Whilst both the Lotto and Health Lottery games are now primed to deliver a ‘hump day’ helping of big-money excitement, the EuroMillions game this Tuesday looks set to be even more tantalising, with an estimated jackpot of around £43 million. That’s because no ticket matched all five main numbers (06, 07, 17, 35 and 43) as well as the two Lucky Stars (02 and 08) that were drawn on Friday 12 October.
The good news is that one EuroMillions player in the UK won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number FML962134 and 3,097,912 tickets won a consolation prize of some kind. As usual, the biggest consolation prizes were won at the second-tier level, where six tickets (two purchased in the UK) won £216,033 by matching all five main numbers and one Lucky Star.
As you can see, it has been a very exciting few days, and there is plenty more excitement to come in the week ahead. Visit this page to buy your lottery tickets for the EuroMillions, Lotto and Health Lottery games and if you strike it lucky you just might be the next big jackpot winner!
