Lottery Jackpots Continue Climbing

The first weekend of February gave players multiple opportunities to win some colossal sums of money, with eight- or nine-figure jackpots on offer in several games. None of those biggest jackpots were won, so they continued to climb and will be worth even more in the draws that are scheduled for the week ahead. The good news is that some very big prizes were still landed, including some that were big enough to bestow millionaire status on their winners. To find out more, join us as we present our concise round-up of the main events of the last few days….

Lottery Jackpots Continue Climbing


10 – 25 – 35 – 37 – 43 Euro Numbers: 05 and 08

A jackpot of €14 million was waiting in the wings for any player who could match all five of the main numbers and both of the Euro numbers that were drawn in this week’s EuroJackpot game, but no player proved able to do that. The good news is that one ticket fell short by just one Euro number, and that gave its owner a life-changing second tier prize worth €2,111,427. Another single ticket picked up a third tier prize worth €378,146 by matching the five main numbers only, and more than 514,000 entries won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers. There will now be a jackpot of around €19 million for players to try and win in the next draw on Friday 12th February.


03 – 27 – 32 – 41 – 46 Lucky Stars: 04 and 08

The jackpot prizes had been won in both of the two EuroMillions draws that led up to the game last Friday, so many players were hoping to see someone make it three wins in a row. Unfortunately that didn’t happen, but two tickets won their owners £576,435 (€778,378) each by matching all five main numbers plus one Lucky Star number. There were eight tickets that matched the five main numbers only to win £48,036 (€64,865) each at the third tier, and over 2.3 million prizes were won across the lower levels. The next game on Tuesday 9th February will now offer a rollover jackpot of around £16 million (€21 million).

Mega Millions    

04 – 06 – 23 – 55 – 75 Mega Ball: 02

Mega Millions players were pursuing a jackpot worth $71 million on Friday, and they will have the chance to pursue even more next time thanks to no player being able to match all six of the numbers that were drawn. No player won a prize at the second tier either, but there were 18 tickets that were able to pick up a third tier prize worth $5,000 each by matching four of the main numbers plus the Mega Ball number. Over 1.08 million tickets landed lesser sums by matching fewer numbers, and the next game on Tuesday will offer a jackpot worth an estimated $80 million.


04 – 13 – 31 – 36 – 52 Powerball: 08

There was no winner of the $136 million jackpot in the Powerball game last night, but one player still managed to become a millionaire by matching the five main numbers needed to win $1 million. The second tier saw 21 tickets match four main numbers as well as the Powerball number to win $50,000 each, and more than 638,000 tickets won smaller prizes across the lower levels. Over 155,000 Power Play entries also won prizes, and there will now be a jackpot of around $157 million for players to try and win in the next game on Wednesday 10 February.

UK Lotto

10 – 12 – 18 – 34 – 52 – 56 Bonus Ball: 50

Seven consecutive rollovers helped the Saturday UK Lotto jackpot to weigh in with a final value of £26.7 million this week, but none of the tickets entered for the game succeeded in landing that prize. A single ticket won £111,072 at the second tier by matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball, and another 85 entries matched five main numbers only to win £1,375 each. There were more than 1.62 million prizes won in total, and another 20 players won £20,000 in the associated Lotto Raffle game. In addition, one player landed a prize of £1 million by matching the Lotto Millionaire Raffle code, which was AQUA 9036 4171. The jackpot in the next UK Lotto game on Wednesday will be worth an estimated £28.8 million.
