Saturday National Lottery rolloverSaturday May 8th 2010
There is much excitement all over the world with various lottery games carrying huge multi rollover jackpots. America and Europe in particular have some very impressive jackpot in their various games. Players in the UK will also have every reason to be excited for the draw tonight. After no one managed to match the winning numbers from the draw on Wednesday, the Saturday National Lottery rollover jackpot now stands at a massive £7 million for the draw this evening. As rollovers do not occur for the National Lottery very often, UK players tend to respond very quickly when they do.
The fact that this National Lottery jackpot is relatively small compared to other world rollover jackpots, is not likely to deter UK players from taking part which is of course good news considering the outstanding contribution that the National Lottery makes to good causes.
Of course, there was also a massive €67 million up for grabs on the EuroMillions last night and we will have to wait for the results of the draw to see whether this lottery game will produce another rollover for next week. The fact that the National Lottery and EuroMillions are drawn on different days gives UK player two attractive jackpots to play for over two days so those who buy lottery tickets for both games can experience an exciting weekend in the lottery world.
The last time a rollover jackpot was won on the National Lottery was 14th April when there was a £16 million triple rollover shared between four lucky ticket holders. Can the UK create another triple rollover? We will have to wait and see.
