Single Ticket Wins Midweek Lotto!
A single ticket matched all six of the main numbers drawn on Wednesday 8 October to win a midweek Lotto jackpot worth £2,263,686. The Lotto results were 04, 27, 28, 29, 34 and 43, and the number 20 was drawn as the Bonus Ball. Whilst we don't yet know who the lucky jackpot winner is, or even if they are aware of their success, we do know that they have cleared the way for a brand new jackpot of around £4.1 million to be offered in the next Lotto game this Saturday.
There were five tickets that matched five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball number to win £36,137 each, and another 102 tickets won £1,504 each at the third tier by matching five main numbers only. More than 132,000 tickets won smaller prizes of £126 or £25 each by matching four or three main numbers, and another 50 players each won a Lotto Raffle prize of £20,000 each.
The consecutive triplet of 27, 28 and 29 that appeared in the midweek game isn't one of the most common, but it is closely related to a couple that are – namely 23, 24 and 25, which has appeared five times, and 26, 27 and 28, which has appeared four times. None of that is significant as far as the odds of any number appearing in the future is concerned because every number or combination of numbers always has exactly the same chance of showing up, but it is an observation that will no doubt be of interest to Lotto statistics fans.
Talking of Lotto statistics, the most overdue numbers as we head towards the next game are 39, 21, 42, 45, 17 and 49, so do keep an eye open for those. Of course, that isn't the only thing we have to look forward to, because the EuroMillions game this Friday 10 October will offer a double rollover jackpot with an estimated value of £100 million. The most overdue numbers for that game are 37, 20, 41, 40 and 44, along with the most overdue Luck Star numbers 06 and 11.
Well done to everyone who won a prize of any kind in the midweek Lotto draw, and good luck to those of you who are hoping to win yourself financial freedom in the EuroMillions and Lotto games coming up this Friday and Saturday.
