As we said in our news item yesterday, there were some fantastic jackpots up for grabs in several of the Saturday lottery games, including a Powerball jackpot of $80 million and a SuperEnalotto jackpot worth €36.8 million. Irish Lotto players were hoping to win a top prize worth around €7 million and UK Lotto players had an advertised jackpot of £4 million to pursue. The only thing stopping participants from landing any of these prizes was the ability to match all of the numbers required by the games in question, so the big question is whether or not any of them managed to do that. Join us on our round-up of the lottery results for Saturday 12th January 2013 and all will be revealed…
UK Lotto Results
- 03 – 07 – 11 – 12 – 24 – 27 Bonus Ball: 13
There was a bizarre mix of good and not-so-good news in the UK Lotto game last night, and the good news was that the jackpot was landed. The not-so-good news for those involved was that there were eight winning tickets and the advertised jackpot of £4 million weighed in at a far lower value of £2.26 million. That gave each of the jackpot winners an equal share worth £278,365, which is far better than not winning at all but not really the kind of money that UK Lotto players have come to expect. The full prize breakdown can be found at lottery.co.uk and the next jackpot this Wednesday is estimated to be worth around £2.2 million.
Health Lottery Results
- 08 – 16 – 29 – 41 – 46
The big advantage of the Health Lottery game is that the top prize is fixed at £100,000 and it isn’t shared between multiple winners, so players know that if they match all five main numbers they will win that sum even if someone else manages to do the same. Unfortunately no player succeeded in winning the top prize on Saturday, but over 3,800 participants did manage to match four or three of the numbers to win £250 or £20 each.
Irish Lottery Results
- 02 – 13 – 22 – 24 – 32 – 33 Bonus Ball: 25
The advertised Irish Lotto jackpot of €7 million came in at the slightly lower value of €6.89 million, but as it happened no player was able to win it anyway, so the top prize rolled over to the next game this Wednesday. One ticket matched five main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball to win the second-tier prize of €25,000 and 48 tickets matched five main numbers only to secure a prize of €1,719 each. There were more than 45,000 prizes won in total, and the midweek jackpot is expected to be worth around €7.5 million.
Powerball Lottery Results
- 10 – 14 – 21 – 23 – 47 Powerball: 07
No player was able to match all five main numbers plus the Powerball on Saturday, so the $80 million jackpot rolled over. Two tickets matched the five main numbers only to win $1 million each, 23 tickets won $10,000 each by matching four main numbers plus the Powerball, and 421,229 tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers. The Powerball jackpot this Wednesday will be worth around $90 million, so we look forward to seeing if aspiring multi-millionaires fare any better next time.
- 09 – 12 – 13 – 30 – 48 – 86 Jolly: 72 SuperStar: 20
The €36.8 million jackpot attracted a huge number of players to the SuperEnalotto game on Saturday, but none of them succeeded in matching all six main numbers and so the next jackpot this Tuesday will be worth an even bigger €37.4 million. More than 60,000 consolation prizes were won in the main game, with 12 tickets matching five of the main numbers drawn to win €30,532 each. For further information about all of the prizes won in the main game – as well as those secured by SuperStar entries – visit supernalotto.net.
Saturday Australian Lotto Results
- 02 – 06 – 11 – 15 – 31 – 34 Supplementary Numbers: 16 and 30
Six tickets matched all six main numbers in the Saturday Australian Lotto game. The jackpot had a final value of AUD $ 4,101,107, so each of those tickets is now worth AUD $683,517. There were 57 tickets that won AUD $9,777 each by matching five main numbers as well as one of the supplementary numbers, and more than 503,000 tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers. The next Saturday Australian Lotto jackpot will once again be worth around AUD $4 million.
