Two Rollovers Create Two Winners
National Lottery players had two rollover jackpots to play for last weekend, and we are very pleased to report that each was landed by a single player, so the two rollovers created two big-money lottery winners. The EuroMillions double rollover jackpot was worth £35,767,540 and the numbers which created the lucky winner were 38, 39, 45, 46 and 49, with the Lucky Stars being 07 and 08. The Lotto rollover jackpot had a final value of £7,706,631 and the lottery results which enabled a single ticket to land that sum were 15, 28, 32, 43, 44 and 45. The Bonus Ball number was 20.
As usual, both the EuroMillions and Lotto games created plenty of lottery winners over and above the jackpot winners themselves. One EuroMillions player in the UK won £1,000,000 thanks to the Millionaire Raffle number BTC736269. 13 players won £177,015 after matching the five main numbers and one Lucky Star number, and another 13 players won £50,234 by matching the five main numbers only. In total, more than 1.47 millions EuroMillions prizes were won, so those who missed out on the jackpot will probably want to spend some of their more modest winnings on a few tickets for the next EuroMillions game.
In the Lotto game, 10 players matched five of the six main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win a second-tier prize of £154,269 each. 373 players matched five main numbers for a third-tier prize of £2,584 each. Include those who matched four or three main numbers only and there were 514,920 Lotto prizes won in total.
Of course, not everyone who won a prize in the EuroMillions and Lotto games is necessarily aware that their tickets are worth more than they paid for them. For that reason, we advise anyone who purchased one or more tickets for the EuroMillions or Lotto draws last weekend to check their numbers using our Lottery Checker. And if you discover that you have won a prize – however small or large – be sure to claim it quickly so that you don’t forget to do so later.
Both the EuroMillions and Lotto jackpots have been reset, so you can now play for around £2.4 million in the Lotto game this Wednesday 21 July and also for around £12 million in the EuroMillions game this Friday 23 July. Buy lottery tickets online for both games and you will also have a chance of winning £1 million in the Millionaire Raffle game. Good luck!Monday 19th July 2010
