The rumour mill has been going crazy all weekend, but now the Stagecoach syndicate from Corby have come forward to claim the Euromillions jackpot from Friday’s draw, worth £38 million!
The news first broke on Twitter, as Corby residents tweeted that a group of bus drivers had walked off shift. Since then, the entire country has been going crazy waiting for details, but it’s now been confirmed and the syndicate have come forward to collect their prize.
At any given time, one lottery jackpot from around the world always manages to be rolling to a monster jackpot and this week it’s the Mega Millions. Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot is an estimated $171 million after a string of rollovers, and now syndicates from participating states, and around the world are coming together to buy tickets for the draw.
When lottery jackpots reach this level, ticket sales go through the roof. Single players buy extra lottery tickets and syndicates who chase big jackpots round the world come together to play online.
If you thought you had missed the SuperEnalotto results for Tuesday 1st November then don’t worry as you haven’t. For reasons we have yet to ascertain, the Italian Lottery draw did not take place. The SuperEnalotto will now play a day late, tonight and the estimated jackpot for the drawing is €28.5 million.
Despite scouring the Italian news pages, we can find no information at all about the Italian Lottery draw playing a day late. It seems it was an informed, planned change, and yet many lottery news agencies were not told.
We’re still awaiting more news about Friday’s £101 million UK Euromillions winner, but it does mean the Euromillions jackpot goes back to base – €15 million. That means the SuperEnalotto tops Europe’s lottery jackpots this evening, with a €21.8 million rollover up for grabs!
This jackpot pool makes the Italian Lottery jackpot the biggest currently available anywhere in Europe, and that’s likely to get lottery players around the world flocking to buy lottery tickets for the draw.
Talking to people on the street around the UK this week, and it’s clear that everyone is ensuring they have every chance at tonight’s £100/€120 million Euromillions rollover jackpot; and the most popular way to increase your chances is with a lottery syndicate, leading to lots of temporary syndicates springing up this week in light of the size of the lottery jackpot.
Many players contribute to syndicates on a weekly basis, but that isn’t the only way to run a syndicate, as there are many, much larger lottery syndicates who only get together for the big draws, and it’s these we are seeing an explosion of this week. After all £100 million is perfect jackpot for syndicates!
If you’ve been to the newsagents in the last couple of days, then you probably already know there’s been a Superdraw announcement from the Euromillions. On 4th October 2011 there’s a scheduled Euromillions Superdraw jackpot up for grabs, and it’s worth a massive £85/€100 million!
No rollovers required, whatever happens in the lottery results for the Euromillions, this Superdraw will still have a bumper Superdraw lottery jackpot on 4th October 2011.
Over the last few weeks we’ve seen some big lottery jackpots won around the world. Back on September 7th one lucky player from Maryland scooped a $108 million Powerball jackpot, incidentally that jackpot has still not been claimed. Then just a week ago, one French player scooped a staggering €161 million on the Euromillions Lottery.
However, with those big jackpots out of the way, the Italian Lottery is shining through. The lottery has the only rollover jackpot that has still not been won, which means currently the SuperEnalotto boasts the world’s biggest lottery jackpot!
The weekend is always an exciting time for lottery players, and with so many rollover lottery jackpots up for grabs last weekend it doesn’t get much more exciting. One such jackpot was the SuperEnalotto, teetering on €60 million at the weekend but with no one matching all the winning numbers to scoop the Italian Lottery jackpot, the SuperEnalotto goes another week without a winner.
The next SuperEnalotto draw will be held tomorrow evening and thanks to the continuing rollovers, the jackpot for that draw will be an estimated €61.7 million, an amount that is likely to attract the attention of lottery players from around the world.
The Thursday SuperEnalotto draw has taken place and after more rollovers than can be counted, the Italian Lottery jackpot has hit the €60 million milestone! Again tonight the lottery didn’t find a jackpot winner, but now that it’s so high, ticket sales are going through the roof!
The winning numbers for tonight’s SuperEnalotto, September 8th are 20 – 45 – 61 – 67 – 80 – 88; Jolly ball 16. However, no one matched all six main balls, creating this bumper rollover.
Lottery syndicates are always fraught with problems, which never materialise until you win the big prize. One such set of issues has just arisen for an American lottery syndicate, after one member missed out. Edward Hairston hadn’t missed a syndicate payment in eight years until he was off sick; this coincided with the lottery syndicate winning $99 million on a Mega Millions rollover jackpot and now Mr Hairston is suing his co-workers after missing out on his share.
So what’s right here? Should Mr Hairston’s co-workers give him the $2 million he thinks he deserves? No doubt feeling is going to differ on this point, but Edward Hairston believes that a share of the lottery jackpot is rightfully his and has now enlisted the help of a lawyer to help him get his hands on it.
