Weekend Lottery Results Indicate Widespread Success
This weekend was an unquestionable success for lottery lovers as more than 870,000 cash prizes were given out to lucky UK players. EuroMillions, UK Lotto and Health lottery awarded the myriad of prizes which were worth a combined total of more than £17.5 million.
The EuroMillions results on Friday 25 July were 09, 10, 12, 24 and 43, with the numbers 05 and 09 being drawn as the Lucky Stars. No player matched all of those numbers, so the jackpot, which had weighed in with a final value of £24.4 million, rolled over for the third draw in a row. The big news in this game was that just one ticket – which we are pleased to say had been bought by a player in the UK – matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a second tier prize worth £1,033,362.
There were eight EuroMillions tickets that matched the five main numbers only to win a third tier prize of £43,056 each, and the total number of prizes landed in the game were 2,584,394. The Millionaire Raffle number BNX573629 made a second UK player a millionaire on Friday night, and the next EuroMillions jackpot this Tuesday is expected to be worth around £29 million.
The main numbers drawn in the Lotto game on Saturday 26 July were 08, 14, 22, 26, 35 and 37, and the Bonus Ball number was 11. A single ticket matched all six main numbers to win a jackpot worth £4,202,465, whilst three other tickets won £111,812 each by matching five main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball number. There were 306 tickets that matched five main numbers only to win £930 each, and another 263,650 tickets won smaller prizes of £107 or £25 each by matching four or three main numbers. Another 50 prizes of £20,000 each were won in the Lotto Raffle game.
In the Health Lottery game on Saturday, the main numbers drawn were 10, 23, 35, 42 and 50, and the Bonus Ball number was 34. One ticket matched all five main numbers to win a top prize worth £100,000 and over 11,000 tickets won consolation prizes.
If you’d like to participate in any of these great games, tickets can be purchased online via the Lottery Tickets tab or in person from an authorised retailer.
