There was a big Powerball draw on last night, boasting the biggest jackpot available anywhere in the world right now at $200 million. It was the biggest draw since Donald Lawson scooped $337 million in mid August, but did it find a winner?
Well around the world ticket outlets were reporting bumper sales, with queues in the US, the draw went off without a hitch and the winning numbers are 13 – 26 – 39 – 41 – 42; Powerball 10.
There have been three big draws up in Australia this week and what an eventful week it has been. Earlier in the week the Oz Lotto rolled over, and that will be worth a staggering $13 million next Tuesday, sure to draw in the lottery players, but then on Thursday there was also an Oz Powerball rollover up for grabs, and that rolled to a staggering $30 million!
Those big rollovers left players wondering what would happen to the $22 million Saturday Lotto Superdraw, would that also roll? As it happened, that did quite the opposite, fourteen players matched all the winning numbers, netting $1.5 million each, talk about sharing the wealth!
As reported yesterday, last night’s Mega Millions jackpot was the biggest current lottery jackpot up for grabs anywhere in the world. The top prize was a rolled over $120 million and interest in the draw was high.
The Mega Millions reported bumper ticket sales all day yesterday, so there was plenty of interest in the draw, which dropped the winning numbers 5 – 11 – 20 – 33 – 36; Mega Ball 11.
If you were buying lottery tickets in the UK this weekend, then we hope you were lucky, because it was certainly a very lucky weekend for UK jackpot chasers. On Friday night the pan-European Euromillions Lottery had a single winner from the UK for its big rollover, and then on Saturday a UK Lotto rollover jackpot also had a single UK winner.
The two jackpots meant that over £40 million was paid out to UK players in jackpots alone, making it a very lucky weekend indeed.
Tonight’s UK Lotto jackpot was an exciting one as always, and the jackpot came in above estimate at £4.8 million. Five lucky players matched all the winning numbers, collecting £968,000 each, but in an unprecedented turn of events, just one person matched five numbers and the Bonus, collecting £1.4 million, the biggest prize of the evening!
The draw was much bigger than expected this evening, with almost £13 million paid out in prize money, but the second prize winner collecting more than the jackpot winners is virtually unheard of, and in our memory has never happened before.
We’ve just seen a big Powerball rollover, the biggest of the year and it rolled all the way to $337 million before it found a winner. It’s been a couple of weeks since the draw, and everyone was wondering who that winner was, we knew it was a Michigan Powerball player but no more details had emerged. All that changed this week as a railroad worker from Michigan stepped forward to claim the huge Powerball rollover.
Donald Lawson came forward last week to claim the big Powerball prize, making him the third single biggest winner ever for the US Lottery drawing.
There aren’t that many lottery jackpots up for grabs around the world on Thursdays; Wednesdays and Saturdays are always the popular lottery draws, but the SuperEnalotto draw took place this evening, having its second draw of the week and one lucky winner has scooped the entire €12 million SuperEnalotto jackpot.
Tonight’s winning SuperEnalotto numbers are 17 – 20 – 22 – 40 – 52 – 62; Jolly Ball 14 and just one lucky winner has matched all the numbers, netting the jackpot.
It was a big midweek rollover in Ireland tonight, coming in slightly above estimate at €8.6 million. Ticket sales were reported to be high today, and the entire country was excited about the Irish Lottery rollover. The draw took place a few hours ago, and when the lottery results were announced, it was also announced that one lucky player scoops the entire €8.6 million Irish Lottery jackpot.
The Irish Lottery has not had a jackpot winner since the middle of July, creating this big rollover jackpot, but it will roll no more.
It was a triple rollover for last night’s Euromillions, and a jackpot worth a massive €47 million. Britain has had a lot of Euromillions luck of late, but all that changed last night as one French player matched all the winning numbers in the lottery results, scooping the entire jackpot!
We don’t yet have any details about the latest Euromillionaire, all we know is that the winning ticket was sold in France. The lucky player will collect a staggering €47,570,390, making it one of the biggest jackpots won in the country this year.
It was estimated at $320 million, but came in at $337 million, making it the biggest jackpot this year, but the Michigan Powerball winner is still to come forward and claim this bumper rollover prize.
The Powerball jackpot had been rolling since June 23rd and had reached epic proportions before being won by one player last Wednesday, but the winner, a single player from Michigan is yet to come forward.
