Two Winners of Double Rollover Jackpot
The Lotto draw on Wednesday 19 January was for a £10.5 million jackpot that had rolled over twice, so perhaps it is only fitting that the spoils were eventually shared by two winning tickets. The Lotto results were 09, 18, 34, 41, 42 and 43, and the Bonus Ball was 33. It is of course too early to know whether the jackpot-winning tickets are owned by syndicates or individual winners, but we do know that each one is worth £5,270,753. We also know that the jackpot for the next Lotto draw this Saturday 22 January will be worth around £4.4 million, so if you didn’t win midweek you just might have better luck this weekend.
The appearance of a consecutive triple (41, 42 and 43) in the lottery results on Wednesday might have raised a few eyebrows among those who are fairly new to lottery games, but because every number has exactly the same chance of being drawn, such triples are not rare. In fact, our Lottery Statistics page highlights the most common consecutive doubles and triples for those who like to make a point of including such groups in one or more of their entries.
As far as last Wednesday’s secondary prizes were concerned, 8 players matched 5 main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win £145,306 each, whilst 319 players matched 5 main numbers without the Bonus Ball to win £2,277 each. 19,940 players won £80 each for matching four main numbers and 380,682 players picked up £10 each for matching three main numbers.
Although the Lotto double rollover jackpot has now been won, the excitement isn’t over for rollover fans by any means. That’s because the EuroMillions lottery game this Friday boasts its own rollover jackpot that will be worth around £24 million, and with the odds of winning any EuroMillions prize being a very encouraging 1 in 24, you could still have a winning weekend even if the main jackpot were to elude you.
With a jackpot of £24 million up for grabs in the EuroMillions game on Friday, plus a £1 million prize in the Millionaire Raffle game and £4.4 million jackpot to be won in the Lotto game on Saturday, this weekend could change your life forever! Of course, before you have a chance of winning a lottery jackpot this weekend you need to get involved, so buy your lottery tickets online today and good luck!Thursday 20th January 2011
