Single Ticket Lands Lotto Jackpot
A single ticket landed the midweek Lotto jackpot on Wednesday 16 April by matching the numbers 01, 06, 10, 23, 25 and 40. Those results gave the lucky player concerned the very nice sum of £1,679,725, which isn't a bad little nest egg to acquire just a few days before the Easter weekend. Whether the winner will come forward to claim their prize in time for lottery officials to pay out before the Bank Holiday is anyone's guess, but the clock is ticking regardless, so if you haven't checked your tickets already you might want to do so now.
There was just one ticket that matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball number 32 to win a second tier prize, and the sum landed for that particular achievement on Wednesday was £134,074. Another 218 tickets won £522 each by matching five main numbers only and more than 185,000 tickets won £56 or £25 each by matching four or three numbers. The Lotto Raffle game helped another 50 players to end the night with an extra £20,000 each.
The next Lotto game this Saturday 19 April will offer another new jackpot, and this time the estimated value of the top prize is £4.3 million. Followers of our Lottery Statistics will be interested to note that the most overdue numbers as we approach the next game are 18, 42, 36, 15, 24 and 13. The most common Lotto numbers are 44, 40, 38, 23, 25 and 39.
The Health Lottery results for Wednesday 16 April were 10, 16, 20, 43 and 46, and the Bonus Ball number was 09. Two tickets matched all five main numbers to win a top prize of £100,000 each, and over 29,000 tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer main numbers, with or without the Bonus Ball. Players who matched two main numbers only won themselves a free ticket for the next draw, and that free ticket promotion will continue running until the end of the month.
Well done to everyone who won a prize in any of the games that were played last night, and good luck to those of you who will be playing for big money over the coming Easter weekend. The EuroMillions jackpot on Friday will be worth around £41 million, so head this way to get your tickets before the holiday rush, enjoy the games and have a Happy Easter!
