Lottery Jackpots Continue to Soar

As usual, the lottery games that took place on Friday and Saturday gave players the chance to win some incredibly generous jackpots. Whilst millions of players succeeded in landing themselves consolation prizes – some of which were worth genuinely life-changing sums – the biggest jackpots on offer managed to elude players everywhere. That means there will be even more cash up for grabs in the week ahead, and we will reveal exactly how much as we present our usual summary of the latest world lottery results…

Lottery Jackpots Continue to Soar

EuroJackpot

01 – 02 – 16 – 31 – 50 Euro Numbers: 01 and 07

EuroJackpot players had a top prize of €14 million to try and win on Friday, but none of the tickets purchased for the game were able to match all seven numbers that were needed to win that prize. Fortunately, there were plenty of consolation prize winners, and the biggest of those were landed at the second tier, where two tickets matched all five main numbers and one Euro number to win €578,888 each. Another two entries won €204,313 each by matching five main numbers only, and there were more than 483,000 prizes won across the lower tiers. There will now be a jackpot worth around €21 million in the next game on Friday 15th April.

EuroMillions

06 – 08 – 26 – 43 – 49 Lucky Stars: 06 and 10

The final value of the jackpot in the Friday night EuroMillions game was £46.2 million (€57.2 million), but once again that prize eluded players everywhere. There were two tickets that won £562,697 (€777,680) each by matching all five main numbers plus one of the Lucky Stars, whilst seven other tickets matched five main numbers only to win £53,590 (€74,065) each. The fourth tier saw 51 tickets win £3,677 (€5,083) each by matching four main numbers as well as both Lucky Star numbers, and over 2.37 million smaller prizes were won by tickets matching fewer numbers. The jackpot in the next game on Tuesday 12th April will be worth an estimated £51 million (around €64 million).

Mega Millions    

31 – 38 – 52 – 65 – 71 Mega Ball: 15

No player won the $65 million jackpot that was up for grabs in Friday’s Mega Millions game, and no player won a second tier prize either, so the biggest winners were found at the third tier where 22 tickets matched four main numbers plus the Mega Ball to win $5,000 each. The total number of prizes won exceeded 1.08 million, and there will now be a jackpot of around $72 million for players to pursue in the next game on Tuesday.

Powerball

14 – 22 – 23 – 41 – 61 Powerball: 09

The final value of the Powerball jackpot on Saturday was $168.5 million, but the task of matching all five main numbers plus the Powerball proved too difficult for anyone to achieve on this occasion. The good news is that two players still managed to become millionaires by matching all five main numbers for a prize of $1 million each, and another nine tickets won $50,000 each by matching four main numbers plus the Powerball. More than 600,000 prizes were won by standard entries, and prizes were also landed by over 141,000 Power Play entries. The next game on Wednesday 13th April will now offer a jackpot worth an estimated $184 million.

UK Lotto

20 – 22 – 25 – 34 – 47 – 51 Bonus Ball: 18

Lottery players in the UK were pursuing a brand new jackpot worth £4.4 million in the Saturday game, but none of the participants could match all six main numbers, so that top prize rolled over. There were no winners at the second tier prize level either, but 61 tickets won their owners £1,705 each by matching five main numbers. More than 1.39 million prizes were landed in total, and the Lotto Millionaire Raffle game created 10 winners of £1 million each. There will now be a jackpot of around £6.7 million for players to try and win in the next UK Lotto game on Wednesday.
