World Lottery Jackpots Prove Elusive

There were plenty of big lottery jackpots available for players to try and win over the last few days, but all of the top prizes in the most popular games managed to elude their pursuers. Fortunately, all lotteries are designed to console players who match at least a few numbers with cash prizes, and some of those prizes can be life-changing in their own right. To find out exactly what happened in the most eye-catching world lottery games in recent days, read on…

World Lottery Jackpots Prove Elusive

EuroJackpot

02 – 07 – 13 – 26 – 49 Euro Numbers: 03 and 04

The top prize in this week’s EuroJackpot game was worth €14 million, and the jackpot will be even higher next week thanks to no ticket being able to match all seven of the numbers that were drawn. Two tickets won their owners €513,350 each by matching the five main numbers as well as one of the Euro numbers, and there were six tickets that matched five main numbers only to win €60,394 each at the third tier. Over 555,000 tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers, and the double rollover jackpot in the next game on Friday 4th December will be worth an estimated €18 million.

EuroMillions

16 – 29 – 30 – 37 – 50 Lucky Stars: 06 and 08

EuroMillions players didn’t fare any better than their EuroJackpot counterparts as far as winning the jackpot was concerned, so the best that anyone could do was win a consolation prize. Six tickets matched the five main numbers plus one Lucky Star number to win £216,687 (€279,492) each at the second tier, whilst another four tickets won £108,293 (€139,736) each by matching the five main numbers only. The total number of consolation prizes landed in the EuroMillions game on Friday exceeded 2.54 million, and the next draw on Tuesday 1st December will now offer a double rollover jackpot worth around £22 million (€32 million).

Mega Millions    

16 – 20 – 39 – 56 – 59 Mega Ball: 12

The Mega Millions jackpot had climbed to $31 million by the time the Friday night draw took place this week, but once again that top prize eluded players everywhere. A single ticket matched five main numbers only to win $1 million for its lucky owner, and a third tier prize of $5,000 was won by each of 17 tickets that matched four main numbers as well as the Mega Ball number. There were more than 946,000 smaller prizes won by tickets matching fewer numbers, and the jackpot for the next game on Tuesday has an advertised value of $39 million.

Powerball

02 – 06 – 47 – 66 – 67 Powerball: 02

Powerball fans were chasing a nine-figure jackpot worth $100 million in the latest draw, but none of the tickets entered for the game were able to match all five main numbers as well as the Powerball itself. A single ticket matched the five main numbers only to win a second tier prize of $1 million, and seven other tickets won $50,000 each by matching four of the main numbers as well as the Powerball. There were over 409,000 standard entries that won smaller consolation prizes, and over 98,000 Power Play entries also won cash sum for their owners. The next Powerball game on Wednesday 2nd December will now offer a jackpot worth $110 million.

UK Lotto

07 – 12 – 20 – 24 – 34 – 52 Bonus Ball: 18

The UK Lotto game boasted a triple rollover jackpot worth £13.32 million on Saturday night, but no player won it, and none of the tickets entered for the game were able to land a second tier prize either. The good news is that there were 101 tickets that matched five main numbers only, and each of those won a third tier prize worth £1,093. There were over 1.8 million winning tickets in total, and the associated Lotto Raffle game awarded cash prizes to each of 21 tickets. One of those tickets was worth £1 million and the others are now worth £20,000 each. The quadruple rollover jackpot in the next Lotto game on Wednesday will be worth an estimated £15.8 million.
