Lottery Games Create Brand New Millionaires

The lottery games on Friday and Saturday were responsible for creating several brand new millionaires, and the biggest winner was in the UK Lotto game, where one player landed a jackpot worth over £10.31 million.

Lottery Games Create Brand New Millionaires

EuroJackpot

01 – 05 – 17 – 39 – 46 Euro Numbers: 06 and 07

One of the main numbers (01) and one of the Euro numbers (07) that were drawn on Friday had also been drawn exactly one week earlier, but that didn’t help any player to win the €21 million jackpot that was up for grabs. On a brighter note, two tickets matched all five main numbers and one Euro number to win a second tier prize worth €615,935 each, and three entries won €144,926 each by matching the five main numbers only. There were 24 tickets that won a fourth tier prize of €6,038 each by matching four main numbers as well as both Euro numbers, and over 546,000 tickets won smaller prizes. The top prize in the next EuroJackpot game on Friday 22nd April will be worth around €29 million.

EuroMillions

13 – 14 – 32 – 37 – 48 Lucky Stars: 01 and 07

There was a brand new jackpot of £11.93 million (€15 million) to be won in the EuroMillions game last Friday, and there will be even more available in the next game after no player succeeded in matching all of the numbers that were needed to win that prize. A single ticket which had been purchased in Spain matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €1,340,631, and five tickets won a third tier prize of £63,834 (€89,375) each by matching five main numbers only. There were 44 tickets that matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £3,626 (€5,078) each, and the total number of winners exceeded 2.05 million. There will now be a jackpot of around £17 million (around €21 million) for players to pursue in the next game on Tuesday 19 April.

Mega Millions    

09 – 10 – 34 – 37 – 73 Mega Ball: 09

The biggest lottery jackpot on Friday night was offered by the Mega Millions game, and was worth around $80 million. No ticket was able to win that prize, but a single ticket which was purchased in California did succeed in matching all five of the main numbers that were drawn to secure a second tier consolation prize worth $1 million. A third tier prize of $5,000 went to each of 23 tickets that matched four main numbers as well as the Mega Ball, and more than 1.14 million prizes were won across the lower levels. The jackpot in the next Mega Millions draw on Tuesday will now be worth an estimated $89 million.

Powerball

03 – 18 – 25 – 32 – 51 Powerball: 03

As we said at the head of this news summary, the Powerball jackpot for Saturday was worth an advertised $205 million, but unfortunately, no player matched the six numbers necessary to win that prize. One player did, however, become a millionaire by matching the five main numbers only and winning $1 million at the second tier. There were 21 tickets that won $50,000 each by matching four main numbers and the Powerball, and more than 718,000 entries won lesser amounts by matching fewer numbers. In addition, over 158,000 prizes were landed by successful Power Play entries, and the jackpot in the next game on Wednesday 20 April will be worth around $227 million.

UK Lotto

02 – 05 – 14 – 42 – 51 – 55 Bonus Ball: 54

The UK Lotto jackpot weighed in with a final value of £10,317,199, and was landed by one ticket that matched all six main numbers, so the nation is now waiting to discover if the winner was an individual player or a lottery syndicate. There were two tickets that won £46,588 each by matching five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball, and at the third tier there were 68 tickets that matched five main numbers only to win £1,442 each. Over 1.38 million prizes were won in total, and the Lotto Millionaire Raffle number BLUE 2446 1287 made another player £1 million richer than they had been previously. There will now be a brand new jackpot of around £2.2 million for players to pursue in the next game on Wednesday.
