Sunday Luck for Plus 5 Player
One Lotto Plus 5 lottery player got this week off to a fantastic start by winning the top prize on Sunday 25 September. The Lotto Plus 5 game can only be played by those who play the main Lotto game on Saturday or Wednesday, and when it is played a single modest fee enters the player’s Lotto numbers into five Lotto Plus 5 draws which take place on non-Lotto days. The top prize is fixed at £250,000 and the Lotto Plus 5 numbers which enabled one player to land that sum on Sunday were 08, 14, 16, 17, 21 and 36. The Bonus Ball was 06.
Although the Lotto Plus 5 jackpot of £250,000 is much less than the jackpot offered in a regular Lotto game, that reflects the fact that a single line of numbers is entered into five separate draws. The actual odds of landing the jackpot are exactly the same as they are in the Lotto game, so winning £250,000 in the Lotto Plus 5 is quite an achievement and well worth celebrating. Another player who had something big to celebrate on Sunday night was the one who matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win a second tier prize of £25,000.
The Lotto Plus 5 game on Monday 26 September wasn’t as cooperative for players and nobody won the jackpot or the second-tier prize. The results for the Monday game were 02, 07, 10, 13, 31 and 38, and the Bonus Ball was 20. Even though the two biggest prize tiers remained untouched on Monday, 45,400 players still managed to win a prize of £250, £25 or £2.50 by matching five, four or three main numbers, respectively.
Everyone who took advantage of the Lotto Plus 5 option when they bought their Lotto tickets for last Wednesday or Saturday will be in with a chance of winning up to £250,000 in the next draw tonight, but there is a much bigger fish of £30 million to be caught in the EuroMillions game too. Buy your lottery tickets online here for that game if you haven’t done so already and good luck!
