Saturday Lotto Jackpot Split Three Ways
With a Friday night Euromillions rollover, it looked as though we may have no notable weekend winners from UK lottery players, but to balance things out the Saturday Lotto jackpot is split three ways, creating three brand new millionaires for the weekend! This Saturday’s UK Lotto jackpot came in just below estimate at £3.8 million, but we don’t think the jackpot winners will be complaining about that!
If millionaires were thin on the ground on Friday evening, (just the Millionaire Raffle saw a winner) then last night certainly made up for it. Each of the UK Lotto jackpot winners collects £1,292,403 and that should mean they have plenty to celebrate, with a third share of the Lotto jackpot.
Also in the Lotto results, another eighteen players (many more than usual) matched the second tier prize. Those players matched five of the six main balls and the bonus, and each of them will collect £66,277.
In total, 609,233 lottery players walk away with a prize from last night’s Lotto draw, collecting a grand total over £13,190,928 in prize money from the draw, signifying a profitable night for UK Lottery players.
The next UK Lotto draw will be held on Wednesday evening, and the estimated jackpot for that draw will be around £2.4 million. Lottery tickets are now on sale for that draw, and for the Euromillions double rollover on Tuesday evening, where an estimated jackpot of £29 million is up for grabs.
