Wednesday Lotto Jackpot Must Be Won
Updated: Monday 16th October 2017
The Lotto jackpot this Wednesday 18 October must be won after the previous game saw a jackpot of £22.67 million roll over. A jackpot cap of £22 million means that no further rollovers are possible, so if the top prize is not won outright this Wednesday, the jackpot fund will roll down to the next highest tier that does have winners.
The Lotto results last Saturday 14 October were 06, 22, 40, 43, 47 and 58, and the Bonus Ball was 42. Nobody won the jackpot, which had a final value of £22,673,298, but one player matched five main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball number to land a second tier prize worth £86,738.
More than 1.23 million prizes were won in total on Saturday, and the combined value of those exceeded £3.47 million. In addition, one player won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle code, which was RUBY 6294 2424, and 20 other players won £20,000 each by matching one of the Lotto Raffle codes, the full list of which can be found on our Lotto Results page.
The jackpot for this Wednesday’s Lotto game is expected to be worth around £24.8 million, and if that estimation is accurate, it would make the jackpot the second largest of the year. The largest, which was on Wednesday 24 May, rolled down to the second tier, where two players shared £25.51 million. Of course, if this Wednesday’s jackpot ends up beating the estimate, it just might turn out to be even bigger than that, which is quite a thought!
Winning £24.8 million this Wednesday would give you plenty of wealth to help you realise your dreams and ambitions, no matter how lofty. Whether you would enjoy the relatively simple pleasure of quitting your job on Thursday morning and jetting off to sunnier climes, or you would prefer to give your life a complete overhaul, you could be just six main numbers away from making it happen.
The most overdue numbers as we head towards the Lotto game this Wednesday are 03, 23, 19, 36, 02 and 24, whilst the most common Lotto numbers are 54, 14, 52, 41, 38 and 37.
