Two Tickets Split Lotto Jackpot
The double rollover jackpot in the Lotto game on Saturday 12 April led to a double success, with two tickets matching all six of the main numbers drawn to take down the top prize. The jackpot weighed in at £8,781,364, so each of the two winners is now £4,390,682 richer than they were this time last week. EuroMillions players who had hoped to win the £26 million jackpot on Friday night were not quite as successful, so there will be a triple rollover prize of £33 million up for grabs this Tuesday 15 April.
The Lotto results that made two players quadruple millionaires last Saturday 12 April were 04, 17, 22, 26, 31 and 47. There were 466 tickets that missed out on a share of the jackpot by just one main numbers, and eight of those tickets also matched the Bonus Ball number 32 to secure a second tier prize worth £44,693. The other 458 tickets that matched five main numbers only had to settle for a third tier prize of £662 each. Another 20,393 tickets won £78 each by matching four main numbers, and 345,712 tickets matched three main numbers to win £25 each.
Because the Lotto jackpot had rolled over in the two draws leading up to the most recent game on Saturday, the Lotto Raffle game created 150 winners of £20,000 each. The complete list of winning numbers can be viewed on our Lottery Results page, so if you haven't already checked your raffle entries you might want to do that now. The Lotto Raffle draw in the next game on Wednesday will create another 50 winners of £20,000 each, and the jackpot in the midweek Lotto game will be worth around £2.2 million.
The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Friday 11 April were 08, 12, 19, 30 and 33, and the Lucky Star numbers were 04 and 11. Whilst there was no winner at the highest level, there were 11 tickets that succeeded in matching all five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Stars to win a second tier prize worth £104,153 each. Seven of those tickets had been purchased right here in the UK, so well done to the players concerned.
A third tier EuroMillions prize of £20,099 went to each of 19 tickets that matched the five main numbers without either of the Lucky Stars, and 50 tickets won £3,818 each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The total numbers of prizes won was 2,892,416, and the Millionaire Raffle game did something particularly special on Friday night by delivering a prize of £1 million to each of 10 lucky winners.
As you can see, there were plenty of players with something to celebrate in recent days, but there is also a chance that someone reading these words just might win the biggest prize of the bunch in the EuroMillions game this Tuesday. Visit this page to buy your tickets online and good luck!
