It was a rollover extravaganza in lottery world this weekend, with not one, not two, but seven of the biggest international lotto jackpots rolling over to even bigger totals for this week's draws.
For online lottery players who had tickets into these amazing games over the weekend, it’s not all gloom and doom, as there are hundreds of thousands of consolation prizes were won too, some big enough to count as a lottery jackpot themselves – so you thought you were left empty handed, you might just be in for the best news ever!
The American lotteries
Let's start by taking a look at the big guns – the two American lotto games that have and continue to not only break lottery jackpot records, but consistently promise to do so again.
Bigger might not always be better, but when it comes to the US Powerball lottery, you can bet your bottom dollar that you will want it as big as it can go! The US Powerball lottery boasted a massive $285 million jackpot on Saturday night and the winning numbers were 5, 9, 17, 37, 64 and Power ball number 2. Unfortunately when it came to crunch time, no Powerball lottery ticket holder had all six winning Powerball numbers to bag the top tiered jackpot prize, causing the jackpot to smash straight through the $300 million mark to $310 million for this Wednesday night.
Different continent, same result - at least for the EuroMillions and UK National Lotteries over the weekend. Friday night saw the EuroMillions jackpot going unclaimed and rolling over to €46 million, although four lucky players did manage a sizable win by matching five numbers for a second tier prize of €280,518.30. Six more tickets matched five numbers to claim €43,557.20 each, while another 62 tickets snatched €2,061.70 by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
No winnings on the weekend means even more lottery prizes during the week, particularly in the UK Lotto which looks like a must-play for lottery fans. In the second prize tier, there was one lucky uk lotto ticket holder who matched five main numbers and the bonus number to scoop £27,472.00. The lucky UK Lottery winning ticket was just one number short of taking home the jackpot! In the third tier, there was no shortage of luck as an incredible 58 UK Lottery players each matched five of the winning UK Lottery numbers and won £ 1,495.00.
Buy a ticket for one, or all four of this week's US, UK and European lotteries, and give yourself the best chance of seeing your bank balance skyrocket!
Best of luck!
