Single Ticket Wins EuroMillions
A single ticket won the EuroMillions rollover jackpot of £24,115,451 last Friday evening, and it did so with one of the new Lucky Star numbers that came into play on Tuesday 10 May. The lottery results for the EuroMillions game on Friday 20 May were 10, 14, 20, 25 and 42, with 08 and 11 being drawn as the Lucky Stars. Whilst the jackpot winner had the biggest cause to celebrate, one UK player also fared very well by winning £1 million in the Millionaire Raffle game – the winning number in this case was GTS683610.
Second tier prizes worth £163,386 each went to eight players who matched all five main numbers and just one of the Lucky Star numbers. 13 players matched five main numbers without any Lucky Stars to win £33,515 each, and 44 players won £4,951 each for matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The number of prizes won in total in the EuroMillions game topped 3.04 million, so there were plenty of players with something to celebrate last Friday, and many will be hoping to fare even better in the next draw this Tuesday.
On Saturday 21 May the Lotto jackpot of £4.4 million was also won by a single ticket. The results in this game were 04, 17, 23, 24, 30 and 35, and the Bonus Ball was 05. 11 players matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win £114,519 each and 560 players picked up a prize worth £1,405 each by matching five main numbers only. 602,641 players won either £55 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers.
The Lotto Plus 5 jackpot on Sunday 22 May proved more elusive that the EuroMillions and Lotto jackpots on Friday and Saturday, but four players did manage to win a second-tier prize of £25,000 each by matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball. The main numbers drawn in that game were 05, 12, 17, 20, 27 and 35, and the Bonus Ball was 11.
And that completes our round-up of the main UK lottery action for the last few days. Now it’s time to buy lottery tickets online for the next batch of games. The jackpot in the EuroMillions game this Tuesday 24 May will be worth around £13 million, and the jackpot in the midweek Lotto game on Wednesday 25 May will be worth around £2.4 million. Have fun and good luck!Monday 23rd May 2011
