The EuroMillions jackpot on Friday night wasn’t won by any player, so it was up to the lottery games on Saturday to provide the weekend’s jackpot-winning action. There were brand new jackpots to be won in the UK Lotto and Australian Lotto games, and hefty rollover jackpots to be won in the Powerball, SuperEnalotto and Irish Lotto games. Some of those jackpots were won and some rolled over yet again, as you will see in our concise round-up of the lottery results for Saturday 20th October 2012…
UK Lotto Results
- 09 – 10 – 24 – 37 – 39 – 40 Bonus Ball: 36
The midweek UK Lotto jackpot had been landed on Wednesday so there was a fresh one up for grabs last night. One ticket matched all six of the main numbers drawn to win it, and the owner of that lucky ticket is now £4,467,060 richer! Five tickets picked up a second-tier prize of £274,896 each by matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball, and the total number of winners was 459,683. The next jackpot will be worth around £2.2 million. For a complete breakdown of Saturday’s Lotto results visit lottery.co.uk.
Health Lottery Results
- 01 – 24 – 26 – 38 – 42
The first Health Lottery draw since the introduction of the new Win Wednesdays game didn’t see any player win the top prize of £100,000, but that doesn’t mean that there wasn’t plenty to smile about. On the contrary – over 4,000 tickets matched four or three of the numbers drawn to win a consolation prize of £250 or £20 each, so well done to everyone concerned.
Irish Lottery Results
- 02 – 12 – 15 – 29 – 34 – 35 Bonus Ball: 16
The Irish Lotto jackpot on Saturday had a final value of €5.13 million, but none of the tickets purchased for the game succeeded in matching all six main numbers required to win it. Of course, it wasn’t all bad news, and three tickets matched five main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball and won €25,000 each as a result. Another 44 tickets won €1,681 each by matching five main numbers only. The total number of consolation prizes won was 40,133, and the next Irish Lotto jackpot this Wednesday will be worth around €5.5 million.
Powerball Lottery Results
- 04 – 21 – 28 – 31 – 44 Powerball: 10
A jackpot of $80 million available in the Saturday night Powerball game attracted plenty of hopeful participants. None of them were able to match all of the numbers drawn to land the jackpot, but four players won $1 million each by matching the five main numbers only. 23 tickets matched four of the main numbers plus the Powerball to win $10,000 each and the total number of prizes won was 399,707. The Powerball jackpot this Wednesday will be worth around $90 million.
- 02 – 05 – 28 – 36 – 69 – 81 Jolly: 29 SuperStar: 61
The odds of winning a SuperEnalotto jackpot are famously lengthy, so it was no great surprise to see the top prize roll over again on Saturday. The second-tier prize level was also vacant of winners, but 12 tickets won a consolation prize of €30,458 by matching five main numbers only. 1,212 tickets matched four main numbers to win €305 each, and 48,244 tickets won €15 each by matching three main numbers. There were also more than 62,000 tickets that won a prize thanks to the SuperStar feature, and full details of those prizes can be found by visiting superenalotto.net.
Saturday Australian Lotto Results
- 10 – 25 – 26 – 27 – 32 – 35 Supplementary Numbers: 12 and 16
There were two jackpot-winning tickets in the Australian Lotto game on Saturday night and because the jackpot itself had a final value of AUD $4,006,942, each of those tickets is now worth a shade over AUD $2 million. 28 tickets matched five of the main numbers plus one of the supplementary numbers to win AUD $14,326 each and over 501,000 other tickets won smaller prizes. The next jackpot will be worth AUD $4 million.
