Two Win Lotto as EuroMillions Rolls
Two tickets shared a Lotto jackpot worth £3.6 million on Saturday night, which is just as well because there was no top prize winner in the £80 million EuroMillions game on Friday. Of course, the silver lining in the EuroMillions rollover ‘cloud’ is that players now have the chance to win an even bigger prize in the next game. The estimated jackpot for the EuroMillions draw scheduled for Tuesday 26 March is an awe-inspiring £94 million, so if you participated in the previous game and didn’t win as much as you had hoped, tomorrow’s game will give you the chance to make a rather glorious comeback!
The EuroMillions results on Friday 22 March gave us the main numbers 12, 27, 32, 34 and 49, along with the Lucky Star numbers 08 and 09. We have already said that nobody won the supersized jackpot that was on offer, but six players did manage to match the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to land a second-tier prize worth £336,277 each. 16 tickets won £42,034 each by matching five main numbers only, whilst 87 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £3,865 each.
The total number of prizes won in Friday’s EuroMillions draw was 4,755,453. UK players collectively took more than £6.36 million from the game and another player won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number KJN139799. Well done to everyone who landed a prize last night and we hope you enjoy every penny!
Jackpot success might have been lacking in the EuroMillions game, but there was a double-scoop of the stuff in the UK Lotto game on Saturday. The main numbers drawn on Saturday 23 March were 03, 14, 16, 19, 37 and 44, and the Bonus Ball was 31. The jackpot had a final value of £3,653,254, so each of the winners can now look forward to having an extra £1,826,627 in the bank. Six tickets won a second-tier prize of £187,346 each by matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball, and there were another 528,072 prizes won at the lower levels. The next Lotto game this Wednesday will offer a new jackpot of around £2 million.
As always, we strongly advise you to check your lottery tickets and make any claims required without delay. When you have done that, click here to enter your numbers for the Tuesday EuroMillions game and be sure to let us know if you land the £94 million jackpot!
