UK Ticket Wins EuroMillions Jackpot
A single ticket that was purchased in the UK won the EuroMillions jackpot last Friday 20 January, so somebody somewhere is £40,627,241 richer than they were last week. The EuroMillions results that made the win possible were 02, 10, 22, 27 and 28, along with the Lucky Star numbers 06 and 08, and those same numbers helped to create more than 3.38 million consolation prize winners. Those of you who haven’t yet checked your EuroMillions tickets might want to do so now just in case one of the lucky winners happens to be you!
There were three winning tickets at the second-tier prize level and one of those was purchased in the UK. Each of the three tickets won £435,634 after matching all five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Stars. A dozen tickets (five purchased in the UK) won £36,302 each after matching the five main numbers only. The winning Millionaire Raffle number last Friday was PBR607068 and the next EuroMillions jackpot this Tuesday 24 January will be worth around £12 million.
In the Lotto game on Saturday 21 January the winning numbers were 05, 17, 32, 39, 42 and 49, and the Bonus Ball was 19. As in the EuroMillions game, a single ticket matched all of the numbers required to win the jackpot outright, and in this case the jackpot was worth £4,404,007. This means that the next Lotto jackpot this Wednesday 25 January will be worth around £2.1 million.
13 tickets went against the convention of traditional superstition and were lucky enough to match five main numbers and the Bonus Ball to win a prize of £104,236 each. Another 511 tickets won £1,657 each for matching five main numbers only. There were 500,525 other tickets that won smaller consolation prizes of either £70 or £10 each for matching four or three main numbers.
We congratulate everyone who won a lottery prize over the last few days (including the owner of the single ticket that won £250,000 in the Health Lottery by matching the numbers 07, 14, 15, 31 and 38) and we wish all players the very best of luck in the games that are scheduled for this week. Buy your lottery tickets online today and the next big winner could be you!
