The EuroMillions and Mega Millions lotteries were both drawn on Friday night, but it was a quiet lottery draw for both of the big games, as the jackpots rolled over for the next draws.
The EuroMillions lottery had a SuperDraw on Friday night, and the special draw was worth an estimated £78.3 million; a boosted jackpot that was at its highest since last month’s Irish EuroMillions winner who is still to be revealed. Despite the huge jackpot and the multitude of lottery hopefuls clutching their tickets as they watched the numbers roll out of the machine, there was no lucky player able to take home the entire jackpot.
Numbers 4, 13, 23, 48 and 50 as well as Lucky Stars 5 and 10 came out of the ball machine on Friday evening, but not one player could match all of the numbers and all of the lucky stars to take home the entire jackpot. There were, however, nine lucky ticket holders who took home the second tier prize fund worth £215,228 each for matching all of the five main numbers and just one out of the two lucky stars.
The jackpot will roll over again for the next draw on Tuesday, October 7th, and it will be worth an estimated £87 million. There will definitely be plenty of lottery players around Europe hoping to get their hands on the huge jackpot next week, as it is not the first time that a EuroMillions SuperDraw has rolled over. In the past, SuperDraws have rolled over several times to create very lucrative jackpots, and we could soon be looking at a jackpot worth over £100 million.
The Mega Millions jackpot had much of the same story that the EuroMillions lottery had last night. Despite offering a $120 million jackpot to players across the 43 member states, the American lottery was unable to find a jackpot winner and will see the top prize roll over for its midweek draw.
Numbers 3, 20, 34, 58 and 67 were drawn along with the Mega Ball of 6, but no tickets matched all of those numbers to take home the entire grand prize. The jackpot will roll over for its draw on Tuesday, October 7th, and it will be worth an estimated $136 million.
There were no second tier prize winners in the Mega Millions lottery last night, so the highest paying prize was at the third level, where 26 players achieved a $5,000 scoop for matching four out of the five main numbers plus the Mega Ball.
