Wednesday Raffle Winners Guaranteed!
Few of the things that are guaranteed in life are worth shouting about, let alone celebrating, but there are a few notable exceptions to that generalisation. The observation that spring always follows winter is one that will comfort UK residents in particular right now, but the fact that the Lotto Raffle game always creates five-figure winners is just as impressive for those of us who love lotteries. There will be 50 guaranteed winners of £20,000 each in tonight's Lotto Raffle draw, and the main Lotto game will give players a shot at winning a brand new jackpot which is expected to be worth an estimated £2.1 million.
The Lotto Raffle isn't the only lottery game that guarantees winners every time, of course. The Millionaire Maker game that is enjoyed by EuroMillions players every Tuesday and Friday creates one guaranteed winner of £1,000,000 in every draw, and last night the prize went to the owner of the ticket bearing the code KJQ995224, so well done to the player concerned.
In the EuroMillions game itself, the main numbers drawn on Tuesday 13 January were 08, 17, 21, 31 and 34, and the Lucky Stars were 09 and 10. There was a fresh jackpot on offer after the Luxembourg win on Friday 9 January, but no player was lucky enough to match all seven numbers this time, so the top prize rolled over to the next game.
Four tickets – including one that had been purchased by a player in the UK – fell just one Lucky Star short of landing the jackpot, but had to settle for a consolation prize of £193,047 each instead. There were 15 tickets that won £17,159 each by matching the five main numbers without either of the Lucky Stars, and 36 tickets matched four main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars to win £3,574 each. There were more than 1.73 million prizes won in all, and UK players shared over £2 million in prize money, which was pretty good for a rollover game.
The next EuroMillions draw this Friday 16 January will offer a jackpot worth around £19 million, but first we have the midweek Lotto and Lotto Raffle games to take part in this evening. The most overdue Lotto numbers at the time of writing are 08, 01, 21, 27, 39 and 03, so we will watch with interest to see if any of those help someone to win big this evening.
Whatever happens in the Lotto game, we know that Wednesday Raffle winners are guaranteed, so click here to buy your tickets online and you just might be one of them. Good luck!
