Lottery Players Chase Massive Jackpots

EuroJackpot

34 – 36 – 37 – 39 – 49 Euro Numbers: 08 and 10

There was a jackpot worth €24 million up for grabs in the EuroJackpot game on Friday night, and there will be even more for players to pursue in the next game thanks to no ticket matching all seven of the numbers drawn. A single ticket won its owner a second tier prize worth €1,191,136 by matching all five main numbers as well as one of the Euro numbers, and another four tickets matched the five main numbers only to win €105,000 each. Over 419,000 tickets won smaller prizes, and there will now be a jackpot of around €31 million to play for on Friday 18th December.

EuroMillions

03 – 05 – 21 – 40 – 43 Lucky Stars: 06 and 11

The EuroMillions jackpot last Friday rolled over for the sixth draw in a row, so nobody won the £45 million (€62 million) that was on offer. Two tickets won €841,043 each by matching all five main numbers and one Lucky Star, and ten other tickets won £43,356 (€56,070) each by matching five main numbers only. There were 40 tickets that won £5,419 (€7,009) by matching four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars, and more than 2.69 million entries won consolation prizes across the lower levels. The next game on Tuesday 15th December will now offer a jackpot worth an estimated £51 million (€71 million).

Mega Millions    

14 – 20 – 43 – 54 – 69 Mega Ball: 05

The jackpot in the latest Mega Millions game was worth an impressive $66 million, but the top prize eluded players everywhere yet again. Two players – one in Maryland and the other in Michigan – won the life-changing sum of $1 million each by matching five main numbers only, whilst the third tier saw 26 tickets win $5,000 each by matching four main numbers plus the Mega Ball. There were more than 1.19 million winners of smaller prizes, and a bigger jackpot worth around $74 million will be up for grabs in the next game on Tuesday.

Powerball

02 – 14 – 19 – 30 – 62 Powerball: 22

The $164 million dollar question in the Powerball game last night was whether or not someone would be able to match all six numbers drawn to win that sum, and the disappointing answer was no. The good news is that two tickets won their owners $1 million each by matching the five main numbers only, and there were 23 entries that landed a second tier prize of $50,000 each by matching four main numbers plus the Powerball. The total number of consolation prizes won by standard Powerball entries exceeded 578,000, and more than 125,000 Power Play entries also won cash sums. There will now be an advertised jackpot of $180 million to play for on Wednesday 16 December.

UK Lotto

15 – 22 – 25 – 40 – 53 – 57 Bonus Ball: 23

Seven consecutive rollovers helped the jackpot to reach a final value of £26.2 million in last night’s draw, but that sequence of rollovers didn’t stop there. The best that any player could do in the main game was win a second tier prize of £113,803 by matching five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball number, and that feat was achieved by just one ticket. There were 67 tickets that won £1,787 each by matching five main numbers only, and over 1.53 million entries won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers. There will now be a multi-rollover jackpot of around £28.5 million for players to chase in the next game on Wednesday.
