Two Midweek Lotto Winners
There were two jackpot winners in the midweek Lotto game on Wednesday 13 June, and the good news for those involved was that the jackpot was higher than estimated. The jackpot had been expected to be worth around £2.2 million but it was actually worth £2,450,516, which is more than 10% better than the estimate and gives each of the winning tickets a value of £1,225,258. Assuming that the tickets are owned by individuals rather than syndicates, this means that the ‘Lottery Millionaires Club’ has two new members, although whether they realise it yet or not is a different matter.
For those of you who haven’t yet checked your tickets, the Lotto results for Wednesday 13 June were 12, 25, 29, 34, 45 and 47, and the Bonus Ball was 16. There were more than a quarter of a million prize-winners in total, so if you didn’t land the jackpot itself you could still have won a smaller prize, and the word smaller here doesn’t mean insubstantial. To illustrate this point, at the second-tier prize level five tickets matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win £150,801 each.
There were 220 winning tickets at the third-tier, and each of those won £2,142 by matching five main numbers only. 12,559 tickets won £82 each by matching four main numbers and 240,798 tickets picked up £10 each by matching three main numbers. Now that the midweek jackpot has been won the jackpot in the next Lotto game this Saturday is estimated to be worth around £4.1 million and it will be very interesting to see if that estimate is beaten for the second game in a row.
Well done to the two lucky jackpot winners and to everyone else who managed to win a Lotto prize of some kind on Wednesday. As for those of you who didn’t win, or who didn’t win as much as you would have liked, you can buy lottery tickets here for the next Lotto game this Saturday as well as for the EuroMillions £21 million rollover jackpot game this Friday. Think winning thoughts and good luck!
