Two Players Share Lotto Jackpot
The final Lotto game of the month took place last night. There was a brand new jackpot on offer that was worth £1,960,710 by the time the draw arrived, and we are delighted to report that two players matched all of the numbers required to share that amount equally. That gives each of the winners a jackpot prize worth £980,355, and although that isn’t quite enough to bestow millionaire status on the winners all by itself, a little wise investment over the next few weeks could soon help to turn it into a seven-figure sum.
The Lotto results for Wednesday 27 February were 02, 14, 20, 23, 24 and 30, with the number 22 appearing as the Bonus Ball. There were 304,860 prizes won in addition to the two already mentioned at the jackpot level, and the biggest of those were worth £75,411 to each of the eight tickets that matched five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball number. 329 tickets won £1,146 each by matching five main numbers only, and all other winners picked up prizes of £47 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers. The estimated jackpot for the next game this Saturday 2 March is around £3.9 million.
In the Irish Lotto game, the results for last night’s draw were 02, 18, 19, 20, 21 and 36, and the Bonus Ball was 27. All possible combinations of numbers have exactly the same chance of being drawn, but last night’s results were still interesting because they included four consecutive numbers, which is an interesting pattern to human eyes despite being rather meaningless from a statistical perspective. Unfortunately, those numbers didn’t help any player to win the jackpot itself, and so the next Irish Lotto jackpot this Saturday will be worth around €6.5 million.
The Health Lottery game created one top prize winner of £100,000 last night thanks to the numbers 08, 11, 12, 18 and 29. Congratulations to that player, and also to the owners of more than 2,600 tickets that won £250 or £20 each by matching four or three of the numbers that were drawn.
All of that lines us up for a fresh dose of big-money action over the next few days. Click here to buy your tickets for the EuroMillions, UK Lotto, Irish Lottery or Health Lottery games and the next jackpot winner could be you! Good luck!
