Will the Winning Lotto Pattern Hold?
The Lotto game is currently on a run of four consecutive draws that have each delivered their jackpots to one or more winners. That kind of winning pattern hasn't been seen since November 2014, and players who keep an eye on such things are wondering whether the lucky streak will continue to hold tonight or whether it will be brought to an end with a jackpot rollover. The top prize this evening is expected to be worth around £2.1 million, and with another £1 million to be shared by 50 Lotto Raffle winners, there is plenty to play for.
EuroMillions players who were hoping to see the jackpot won in the first draw of the week were disappointed last night because none of the tickets entered proved able to land the £10.65 million that was up for grabs. For those of you who haven't yet checked your tickets, the EuroMillions results on Tuesday 10 March were 02, 06, 23, 30 and 31, along with the Lucky Star numbers 02 and 10.
There were five tickets that matched all five main numbers as well as one of the Lucky Star numbers, but because none of those tickets had been bought in the UK, the prizes will be awarded in euros, and each winner will now be able to claim an impressive €207,423. The third prize tier had two fewer winners, with just three tickets (two in the UK) winning £89,813 each for matching the five main numbers only.
Another 49 tickets gave each of their owners a prize of £3,454 by matching four main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars, and more than 1.71 million smaller prizes were won at the lower levels. The Millionaire Maker code, which was worth £1 million to the player with the ticket bearing the same, was DPP552799.
The next EuroMillions game on Friday will now offer a rollover jackpot worth around £18 million, but right now lottery fans have the midweek Lotto jackpot of £2.1 million to play for.
