Two Share Midweek Lotto
Two tickets matched all six main numbers in the Lotto draw on Wednesday 21 April to share the midweek jackpot, which was worth £2.46 million. Each winning ticket is therefore worth £1,238,144, which is a pretty good result for a fairly modest midweek draw and certainly one that will change the lives of the winners. Another nine players matched five main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win a second-tier prize of £84,659 each. The next Lotto jackpot this Saturday will be worth around £4.6 million, but before we get to that we first have a £38 million EuroMillions double rollover jackpot to play for this Friday.
The lottery results that created two more millionaire-making tickets on Wednesday were 02, 10, 16, 19, 33 and 45, and the Bonus Ball was 30. National Lottery players who intend to have a go at the next Lotto draw this Saturday might like to know that the most overdue numbers right now are 04, 12, 39, 22, 17 and 07, and as always you can find many more potentially useful facts and figures on our Lottery Statistics page.
Whilst the Lotto game will always be a favourite among lottery players in the UK, it has to be said that the EuroMillions game tends to steal the limelight from time to time, and this weekend will no doubt be one of those times. Having rolled over twice, the EuroMillions jackpot this week would pay out around £38 million to a single player who is lucky enough to win it outright. Even if two or three people were to win the EuroMillions jackpot, an equal share of the £38 million jackpot would still be massive, and give the winners more cash than many minor celebrities will see in a lifetime. And of course, when you buy a EuroMillions ticket in the UK you also have an extra shot at becoming a millionaire thanks to the associated Millionaire Raffle game.
We will obviously bring you any news on the latest lottery winners just as soon as it is made public.
