EUROJACKPOT MATCHES MEGA MILLIONS BY PAYING OUT JACKPOT ON FRIDAY 13TH
As we told you yesterday, one single ticket holder won $200 million on the Mega Millions on Friday, and that feat was repeated in Europe as one ticket matched all of the required numbers to win the EuroJackpot.
Several consecutive draws had seen rollovers, as the EuroJackpot hadn’t been won since a Barcelona player took home the lottery top prize in October, so on Friday night when the jackpot was worth €32.6 million, one player must have been delighted when they realised that they got to take all of the spoils home. Thanks to their choice of numbers 19, 23, 26, 27 and 49 along with Euro Numbers 3 and 10, that one player, who purchased their ticket in Germany, won all €32,657,956.
The EuroMillions was also drawn on Friday 13th, but the superstition was proved when no players were able to take home the top prize. The lottery game has not been won since the EuroMillions Super Draw took place last weekend, and numbers 10, 17, 18, 33 and 40 plus Lucky Stars 2 and 8 meant that the same fate would happen this weekend. There were five second tier prize winners of £441,327, and one UK Millionaire Raffle winner, but the top prize rolls over and will be worth £101 million on Tuesday.
After the Mega Millions excitement of Friday, one could be forgiven for wondering if there would be a repeat on Saturday night as the Powerball lottery was drawn. With a jackpot worth $60 million, players needed only to match numbers 14, 22, 37, 45 and 66 plus the Powerball of 5 to take that home, but nobody was able to do so. There were also no second tier prizes paid out this weekend, and the next draw, set to take place on Wednesday, will be worth $70 million.
Finally, on Saturday night we saw the UK Lotto drawn with no technical glitches, unlike last weekend, and after one player won big in the drawing midweek, the National Lottery game seemed to be on a roll as another player took home the jackpot this weekend. To win the prize worth just over £4.3 million, the ticket holder had to match numbers 2, 23, 39, 54, 55 and 57, and one single ticket did just that. No second tier prizes were won on Saturday, and the next jackpot will be worth around £2.2 million.
