Three Midweek Lotto Jackpot Winners
Wednesday was transformed into Wins Day for the owners of three Lotto tickets that matched all six main numbers required to win the midweek jackpot on 22 February. The Lotto results were 07, 12, 15, 35, 43 and 49, and the Bonus Ball was number 08. The jackpot had a final value of £2,326,278, so each of the three winning tickets is now worth £775,426. That could well be less than a typical lottery jackpot winner might expect to win, but it’s a whole lot better than missing out altogether and will no doubt be welcomed with enthusiasm by the lucky players concerned.
There were also three winning tickets at the second-tier prize level, and each of those won £238,592 after matching five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball. 235 tickets matched five main numbers only to win £1,903 each and another 287,418 tickets won either £68 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers. Now that the midweek Lotto jackpot has been won, the jackpot for the next game this Saturday 25 February has been reset and will be worth around £4.2 million.
In the Irish Lotto game on Wednesday 22 February the results were 11, 13, 15, 20, 28 and 33, with the number 29 being drawn as the Bonus Ball. No ticket won the jackpot and no ticket won a second-tier prize either, so the biggest winners were found at the third-tier prize level where 40 tickets matched five main numbers only to win €1,365 each. The jackpot, which had been worth €2.48 million, has now rolled over to the next Irish Lotto game and will therefore be worth around €3 million this Saturday.
Before we get to those Saturday Lotto draws there is a quad-rollover jackpot of around £45 million to play for in the EuroMillions game this Friday 24 February. Buy your lottery tickets online today and you just might wake up on Saturday morning feeling richer than most Premier League footballers! Good luck!
