There is nothing like the tantalising possibility of winning a lottery jackpot to brighten up an otherwise grey evening in mid-December, and last night was a good illustration of that. The Powerball game boasted a brand new jackpot of $40 million and the SuperEnalotto game had a top prize of €29.5 million. In the UK, there was a new jackpot of £4 million in the Lotto game and over in Ireland the Irish Lotto game was offering around €4.5 million to anyone who could match all of the numbers required. There was plenty of action taking place, so let’s get straight down to business by revealing the lottery results for Saturday 15th December 2012…
UK Lotto Results
- 06 – 19 – 22 – 23 – 28 – 29 Bonus Ball: 18
The midweek UK Lotto jackpot was shared by two winning tickets, so there was a brand new jackpot on offer in the Saturday Lotto game. This time, three tickets matched all six of the main numbers to share a jackpot of £3,468,222, which means that each of those tickets is now worth £1,156,074. There were 14 tickets that matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball number to win £76,224 each, and the total number of prizes won was 624,210. Full details of the prize schedule for Saturday can be found by visiting lottery.co.uk, and the jackpot for the next game this Wednesday 19 December will be worth around £2.2 million.
Health Lottery Results
- 01 – 02 – 16 – 20 – 29
Two of the five numbers drawn in the Health Lottery game last night had also been drawn on the previous Saturday, and this time one ticket was able to match all of the numbers to win the £100,000 top prize. Well done to the owner of that ticket and also to the owners of over 5,000 tickets that matched four or three numbers to win a consolation prize of £250 or £20 each.
Irish Lottery Results
- 03 – 13 – 15 – 22 – 26 – 30 Bonus Ball: 09
As always, Irish Lotto players had a 1 in 8.1 million chance of landing the jackpot on Saturday night, and this time the jackpot weighed in at a very nice €4,650,968. One player won that prize outright, so it is a good bet that he or she will be doing some serious Christmas shopping in the near future. Over 46,000 tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers, with two of those tickets matching five main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball number to win €25,000 each. The next Irish Lotto game this Wednesday will offer a brand new guaranteed jackpot worth €2 million.
Powerball Lottery Results
- 15 – 23 – 40 – 44 – 55 Powerball: 14
There was a fresh jackpot of $40 million to be won in the Powerball lottery game last night, but none of the tickets entered for the game succeeded in matching all five main numbers as well as the Powerball. Four tickets matched five main numbers only to win a generous second-tier prize worth $1 million each, and 346,485 other tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers. The next Powerball jackpot this Wednesday will be worth $50 million and it will be very interesting to see if the game can deliver its third eight-figure midweek jackpot-winner in a row.
- 15 – 26 – 35 – 39 – 53 – 59 Jolly: 11 SuperStar: 66
The SuperEnalotto game promptly returned to normal after a postponed Saturday game last week, and unfortunately for players that meant more rollovers in the draws that took place on Monday and Tuesday. There was another jackpot rollover in the game last night, so the next SuperEnalotto jackpot this Tuesday will be worth around €29.9 million. The good news is that more than 37,000 consolation prizes were won in the latest game, so visit superenalotto.net for full details of those as well as details of the winning SuperStar entries.
Saturday Australian Lotto Results
- 05 – 07 – 09 – 16 – 20 – 41 Supplementary Numbers: 06 and 11
Australia’s latest Saturday Lotto game created two jackpot winners, and because the jackpot pool boasted a value of AUD $3,967,503, each of those winning tickets is now worth AUD $1,983,751. Another 56 tickets matched five main numbers plus one of the supplementary numbers to win AUD $9,621 each, and the total number of prizes landed was 598,257. The next Saturday Lotto jackpot will be worth around AUD $4 million, but we should also tell you that a very special AUD $30 million Mega Draw has been announced for Saturday 29th December, which will make things particularly exciting for players at the end of the year.
