Spain Lands EuroMillions Jackpot
One ticket purchased in Spain matched the seven numbers required to land the EuroMillions jackpot on Friday 13 June, giving its lucky owner the grand sum of €137,313,501, which equates to £109,589,905 in pounds sterling. The EuroMillions results that gave Spain its sixth jackpot success of the year were 16, 18, 22, 28 and 46, and the Lucky Star numbers were 09 and 11. There were no UK tickets that succeeded at the second tier prize level, but four tickets bought elsewhere matched the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win €700,752 each.
The third tier prize level saw 11 EuroMillions tickets win £60,654 each, and a couple of those entries had been purchased by players in this country. There were more than 4.48 million prizes won in total, and UK participants collectively landed over £6.87 million in prize money. An additional £1 million was won by the player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number MKX532718.
In the Lotto game on Saturday 14 June the results were 09, 18, 22, 23, 29 and 33, and the Bonus Ball number was 15. Three tickets shared a jackpot worth £3,447,723, giving each winner a personal windfall worth £1,149,241, and another eight tickets won their owners £34,399 each by matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball. The total number of prizes won in the main game was 332,862, and there were another 50 Lotto Raffle winners of £20,000 each.
With top prizes landed in the Friday EuroMillions and Saturday Lotto games, hopes were high that the Health Lottery would prove just as cooperative, and we are pleased to say that it did. One ticket matched the five main numbers (01, 11, 18, 26 and 31) to win £100,000, and over 13,000 players won smaller prizes, with or without the help of the Bonus Ball number 20.
The Irish Lottery numbers on Saturday were 04, 08, 15, 18, 19 and 22, and the Bonus Ball number was 01. Two tickets matched all six main numbers to share a jackpot worth €2 million, and another three tickets won €25,000 each by matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball. More than 45,500 tickets won smaller prizes at the lower levels.
Astute readers may have noticed that the number 18 was drawn in all of the lottery games just mentioned, and the number 22 was drawn in three out of four of them. There is nothing particularly significant about that, but it may be encouraging those of you who like playing the same numbers in all of the games that you participate in.
The attention of lottery players has now shifted to the first EuroMillions game of the week this Tuesday, which will offer a brand new jackpot of around £12 million. Click here to enter your numbers online and good luck!
