POWERBALL JACKPOT GOES THROUGH $300M BARRIER
The midweek lottery draws produced a series of rollovers and that means some big jackpots at the weekend with the Powerball top prize up to $306m.
Tuesday’s EuroMillions draw had a top prize of £22.06m but ended in a rollover. No tickets could match 04-16-20-31-39 and the two Lucky Stars 02 and 12. On Friday, the jackpot rises to £32m with players hoping to get a big jackpot win just like the Welsh syndicate that won a £25m EuroMillions top prize.
The SuperEnalotto jackpot was €34.5m on Tuesday but will be €35.4m on Thursday. That’s because the numbers 03-10-38-52-65-71 and the Jolly 01 proved elusive to those who had purchased tickets for the draw. They didn’t prove as lucky as the recent €130.2m SuperEnalotto jackpot winner.
In the USA, the Mega Millions draw on Tuesday evening had a top prize of $50m but didn’t produce a jackpot winner. The numbers drawn were 21-34-44-49-61 and the Mega Ball 21. There were no winners of the second-tier prize unlike Ina H. Fernandez from Virginia, USA, who just beat the deadline to claim her $1m Mega Millions prize. On Friday the jackpot is $55m.
A UK Lotto jackpot of £21m was won in last Saturday’s draw. That meant the top prize on Wednesday was £1.9m but ended in a rollover. Tickets failed to match 04-22-26-32-48-54 and the Bonus Ball 57. That’s the eighth time in the last nine draws there’s been a single figure main number. On Saturday, there’s a £5.1m top prize on offer.
The Powerball jackpot was $280m but ended in another rollover meaning Saturday’s draw has a top prize of $306m. The elusive numbers were 17-19-21-22-51 and the Powerball 19. No tickets were able to match the five main balls to win the runners-up prize unlike Robert “Bob” Schuit, from Oak Brook in Illinois, USA, who won $1m on the Powerball after 44 years playing the lottery.
There were no big winners in the Lotto 6 aus 49 draw as tickets found it impossible to match 02-12-13-19-34-46 and the Bonus 09. The jackpot rises to €6m on Saturday. Wednesday’s Super 6 draw saw two tickets match the six numbers drawn to win the top prize of €100,000.
More jackpot joy occurred in the Joker draw with two winners, both of whom will receive €77,198.70. The Bonoloto draw on Wednesday produced a second-tier win of €187,333.51 There’s been no jackpot win in the last five draws and on Thursday the top prize is €1.8m.
