Two Midweek Lotto Winners
Two tickets won the midweek Lotto game on Wednesday 21 March. The jackpot was worth £2,398,612, which was slightly more than predicted, so each of the winning tickets is now worth £1,199,306. The Lotto results that delivered the midweek jackpot payout were 10, 14, 21, 25, 39 and 45, and the Bonus Ball number was 40. The jackpot for the next Lotto game this Saturday will be worth around £4.2 million, but there is a EuroMillions rollover jackpot to play before then, with around £22 million up for grabs this Friday 23 March.
There were five players who matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball number to win a second-tier prize worth £147,606 each, and another 291 players won £1,585 each by matching five main numbers only. 277,788 players matched four or three main numbers to win either £72 or £10 each, making 278,086 midweek Lotto prize winners in total.
In the Irish Lotto game on Wednesday 21 March there were no rollover jackpot winners, and so the jackpot for the next game this Saturday will be worth around €9.5 million. That’s a very hefty multi-rollover jackpot when you consider that the odds of winning it are even better than they are in the UK Lotto game – the odds of landing the Irish Lotto jackpot are around 1 in 8.14 million because there are only 45 main numbers in play as opposed to 49 in the UK game.
The Irish Lotto results on Wednesday were 06, 09, 11, 12, 21 and 29, and the Bonus Ball was 32. There were three tickets that matched five main numbers along with the Bonus Ball to win €25,000 each, and another 104 tickets won €751 each by matching five main numbers only. Smaller prizes of €5, €24, €29 or €141 were won by players who matched three main numbers or more.
With a fantastic EuroMillions jackpot of £22 million on offer this Friday and two very attractive Lotto jackpots to play for in the UK and Ireland on Saturday, the next few days could be life changing for several people.
