Single Ticket Wins Midweek Lotto
The midweek Lotto jackpot was won by a single ticket, giving the lucky winner (or winners, if it transpires that the ticket was owned by a syndicate) a fantastic prize of £2,859,843. The lottery results for the draw on Wednesday 26 January were 14, 17, 20, 43, 47 and 49, and the Bonus Ball was 31. A total of 262,441 prizes were won by midweek Lotto players this week, and those who didn’t win a major prize can now play for a EuroMillions jackpot of £12 million on Friday and another Lotto jackpot of around £4.4 million this Saturday.
6 players missed out on the Lotto jackpot by just one main number, but managed to match the Bonus Ball to win a second-tier prize of £146,658 each. Another 209 players matched five main numbers only to win £2,631 each. The rest of the prizes were worth £101 for four main numbers (11,913 winners) and £10 for three main numbers (250,312 winners).
We congratulate everyone who won a Lotto prize midweek, but the jackpot for the next Lotto draw will be even bigger, so there is everything to play for this Saturday. Our Lottery Statistics page will be of interest to anyone who likes to base their selections – either partially or totally – on historical data, and the most popular section of that page is the one that shows the numbers which are ‘most overdue’ to be drawn. Right now those numbers are 01, 28, 05, 30, 29 and 23, and we will just have to wait and see if any of them come up in the next draw this Saturday.
Of course, before we get to the Lotto game we have a EuroMillions jackpot of £12 million to play for this Friday 28 January. All lottery players in the UK who buy a EuroMillions ticket also receive a Millionaire Raffle number automatically, so if EuroMillions doesn’t make you a millionaire, the Millionaire Raffle draw just might!
Buy lottery tickets online for both EuroMillions and the Lotto games and this time next week you could be sunning yourself on a tropical island, thinking carefully about how to spend your millions. If so, don’t forget to send us a postcard!Thursday 27th January 2011
