Washington draw rolls overTuesday March 22nd 2011
A rollover is in prospect for players who buy lotto tickets in Washington State this week, after no one won Monday night’s main Lotto draw. The jackpot for the next draw, tomorrow evening, will now be $8.9million, while there will also be bumper prizes on offer for winners of the state’s Hit 5 and Match 4 games.
While the top prize for the former will therefore rise to $390,000, winners of the latter draw receive an automatic $10,000 top prize. There is therefore expected to be a rush to buy lotto tickets ahead of tomorrow’s draw.
The Lotto numbers drawn were 1,9, 23, 31, 34 and 40, while the Hit 5 numbers which also went unmatched were 7, 13, 20. 34 and 37.
Meanwhile, the multi-state Mega Millions game continues to roll on, with a draw taking place tonight for an estimated $244million jackpot, which for one lucky winner could equate to an instant $155.7million payout, after state taxes.
