A recap of this weekend’s lottery action from the world’s top lottery games has us taking a quick look at the giant lottery activity of US Lottery, then onto the European Lotto games of UK National Lotto and EuroMillions.
Kicking off with the US Lottery of Mega Millions, sees a Friday draw that had the world’s attention, as on offer was a giant jackpot prize of $26 million. The last Mega Millions draw went off without much ceremony as no players managed an accurate enough match to take home the jackpot or the second place prize – this week was a complete repeat of that with prize giving only coming from the third tier where 19 players scored a win of $5, 000 for their match of 4 and the Mega Ball.
Loyal US Lotto players would hope that Saturday’s Powerball game would prove less catastrophic – and indeed really probably pray for a jackpot win, as the Powerball jackpot towered at $50 million. No players were as fortunate as to claim that astronomical jackpot, with the game instead producing 2 second place winners who each took home a $1 million win for a successful match of 5. They were followed by 14 more players who scored $10, 000 for their third tier match of 4 and the Power Ball. So although the game didn’t yield any jackpot prizing as many would have hoped, it at least put on a better performance than Friday’s Mega Millions game. At stake for Powerball jackpot fans is an amazingly escalated first place prize of $60 million … that’s a leap of 10 million – now that’s a rollover!
Taking it back once again to Friday’s draw – the Euro Lotto game of EuroMillions had its turn to wow and awe players. The jackpot at EuroMillions headquarters was €24 million up for grabs for the game’s weekend fans. The usually generous game went another week without granting any players a taste of jackpot action. The game did however make up for it with enormous second place prizing to the tune of € 515,956.40, awarded to 3 lucky players for their match of 5 and 1 Star Ball. Third place winning also proved extremely lucrative with 2 players snatching up € 257,978.20 for their match of 5. A match of 4 and 2 Star Balls saw 68 players take the last of the game’s higher tier winnings in the form of € 3,793.70 in the fourth tier. All in all, a rather prosperous draw for fans of the popular European lottery which still managed to lead to a rollover for the midweek draw. Meaning the EuroMillions jackpot will be €32 million for Wednesday’s November 18th draw.
The last ‘top’ lottery game we’ll have a look at is the UK National Lotto game. Even though the UK Lotto only stood at £4, 1 million it still proved to be a game to watch because of the frequency and tendency of the UK Lotto to dole out jackpots at any given moment. That is in fact why the jackpot prize was at its introductory stages in its weekend draw on Saturday. The draw didn’t let go of its top first place prize that easily this time around, as no players managed an accurate jackpot match. Winnings only came from the second tier onward where 3 players matched 5 and the Bonus Ball to score a hefty £103,351.00 each. This win would also round up the top tier winnings for that game as well, with the rollover meaning that players who participate in the weekly draw on Wednesday will be playing for £5, 3 million.
