The big jackpot win in the midweek lotteries came in Germany where one lucky ticket took home the €14,92m in the Lotto 6 aus 45 draw. More success followed with four tickets winning the Joker jackpot, each winning €151,507.60.
Monday saw one ticket win the runners-up prize of €151,968.20 in the Bonoloto draw. The following evening another second-tier win of €172,038.73 was won by a single ticket.
Tuesday’s EuroMillions draw had a moderately large £15.13m jackpot but ended in a rollover. The elusive numbers were 06-19-39-45-48 and the two Lucky Stars of 07 and 12. That’s the third time in four draws that 12 has been a Lucky Star. Two tickets, both sold in France, matched all but one Lucky Star to both win €353,795.50.
The SuperEnalotto jackpot in Spain was €66.1m on Tuesday but no tickets were able to match 03-09-43-48-61-83 and the Jolly 07.
In the USA, there was no jackpot win of the $139m Mega Millions as players found it impossible to match 10-16-31-42-66 and the Mega Ball 10.
A $139m jackpot was also up for grabs in the Powerball draw. The numbers drawn were 07-14-23-38-55 and the Powerball 18. There was no top prize winners but tickets sold in Arizona, Nebraska and Idaho matched the five main balls to win $1m.
Wednesday’s UK Lotto draw was the first under the new rules and had a £2m top prize. The jackpot now must go after 5 rollovers and ensures a jackpot win. The latest draw ended in a rollover with all tickets failing to get 24-31-35-42-46-53 and the Bonus Ball 09. Only four more rollovers before we get to see the new ‘Must-be-won’ draw.
