COMBINED MEGA MILLIONS AND POWERBALL JACKPOTS NOW $1.3BN
Friday is going to be a record-breaking night as the Mega Millions jackpot is $900m (and counting), the highest ever in the history of the draw. The Powerball jackpot on Saturday will be $468m.
The SuperEnalotto jackpot on Tuesday was €51.6m but didn’t produce a winner of the top prize so it’s €52.5m top prize on Thursday. The numbers drawn were 08-13-25-50-65-72 and the Jolly 54.
Tuesday’s EuroMillions draw had a £32.6m top prize but ended in a rollover. The elusive numbers were 15-28-37-40-42 and the two Lucky Stars 01 and 06. There were four second-tier winners, one sold in the UK winning £125,435.10. There were two more sold in France and one in Switzerland receiving €197,242. On Friday, the jackpot is £42m, let’s hope for more big winners such as Arthur Howard from Scotland who won £1m playing EuroMillions.
Now to the first of the massive American jackpots. Tuesday’s Mega Millions draw lived up to its name with a $667m jackpot, the highest in the history of the Mega Millions draw. That record didn’t last long as there were no winners of the top prize and Friday’s draw has a staggering $900m jackpot (cash option $513m) and it’s likely to be even higher by the time the draw takes place. Tuesday’s numbers were: 03-45-49-61-69 and the Mega Ball 09. Nine tickets matched the five main balls to make their owners millionaires. Two were sold in Pennsylvania with the others in California, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, New Jersey, New York and Texas. Perhaps Friday’s draw will see another big win like the $536m Mega Millions top prize won by an Indiana family.
Wednesday’s UK Lotto jackpot was £9.59m but will be £12.5m on Saturday after tickets failed to match 01-05-06-20-51-54 and the Bonus Ball 56. Remember, next month sees changes being made to the UK Lotto draw.
The Powerball draw had a $345m jackpot but no tickets could match 03-57-64-68-69 and the Powerball 15. There were four runners-up winners who all become millionaires. The lucky tickets were sold in Florida, Kentucky, Massachusetts and New Jersey. They follow Charles Dudley from Connecticut in winning a $1m Powerball windfall. On Saturday, the top prize is $430m.
Back in Europe, there was a jackpot winner in the Lotto 6 aus 45 draw with one ticket winning € 3,905,735.50. The Lotto 6 aus 49 draw produced four second-tier winners of €188,730.80 and two tickets won the €100,000 Super 6 jackpot. Don’t forget tonight’s La Primitiva draw has a €44.5m jackpot and there’s a €74m top prize in Friday’s EuroJackpot draw.
