Double rollover creates £10m National Lottery jackpotTuesday January 18th 2011
National Lottery players in the UK have just a matter of hours left to buy a ticket and be in with a chance of getting their hands on this week’s double-rollover prize fund. The Lotto’s estimated jackpot for the next draw currently stands at £10,100,000. To win the top prize, players must match the game’s six main numbers. But there are also prizes available to anyone who matches just three numbers.
Advances in technology mean it is now simple to buy lotto tickets online, so there really is no excuse for missing out.
Any lottery players looking for a slightly larger jackpot only have to look across the pond. Tuesday night’s Mega Millions draw has a jackpot of $40million, while Wednesday’s Powerball prize fund is an estimated $96million thanks to a number of jackpot rollovers. If just one player was to match all five main numbers along with the Powerball, they would walk away with a lump sum cash payment of $48.7million.
