No Weekend Winners Mean Big Midweek Jackpots

Mega Millions NewsSunday 22 September 2013 – Another weekend without a major lottery winner has sent jackpots spiraling for the following midweek draws.

The EuroMillions top prize for Tuesday is now expected to reach £45 million in a quadruple rollover event after no tickets managed to match the five winning numbers 5, 11, 35, 38 and 45 along with the Lucky Stars 2 and 3 drawn on Friday night. Four lucky ticket holders did, however, match five balls and one Star to each net a tidy £288,743.

Stateside, there’s an estimated $160 million now at stake in Tuesday evening’s Mega Millions after no-one won the $145 million on offer on Friday, making it the competition’s seventeenth draw since its last jackpot win. Five players did manage to Match 5 over the weekend to scoop $250,000 each, with those tickets sold in Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Virginia and Washington.

The $40 million Powerball jackpot also remained elusive to players hoping to bag the windfall from Saturday’s draw, but hefty second prizes went to five winners matching five numbers with all of them receiving $1 million. Wednesday’s rollover will see people playing for a projected $50 million grand prize.

Last Wednesday saw a massive $400 million Powerball jackpot won by a single ticket holder who successfully matched all winning numbers drawn, the fifth largest win in US lottery history. The ticket was purchased at a Murphy Express gas station in Lexington, South Carolina, and the Multi-State Lottery Association has said they are waiting for the player to come forward to claim their winnings.

With so many rollover jackpots up for grabs over the next few days, jackpot hunters will no doubt be making a bee line for ticket sellers this week. For the full rundown of lottery results as and when they happen, head on over to Lottery.net.
