Weekends are fabulous for de-stressing, relaxing, partying, chilling - but they're also great for lotto playing too! If you're a lottery fan, you'll know that all the big jackpot draws take place on the weekend, and if you're a GiantLottos.com member, you'll know that you can enter each one online, with the minimum of fuss.
So which lotto did you play with us this weekend? Brazil's Mega-Sena? Italy's SuperEnaLotto? Or how about the US Powerball or MegaMillions, or even the UK National Lottery or EuroMillions? If you had your ticket in hand for any of the weekend lotto draws, you'll know it was two-day riot of excitement, anticipation and huge lottery winnings! If, however, you missed out on buying your lotto ticket in time, you know not to make the same mistake twice. You have to be in it to win it, so make sure you're not left out the next time the lotto draws come around!
To those of you who made your play for US lotto glory on Friday and Saturday, you'll know just how the numbers played out over the weekend - some good news, some bad news.
Let's start with the so-so news. Friday night saw the US Mega Millions go up for grabs, with an estimated $39 million jackpot for the taking. 6, 11, 32, 46, 68 and a Mega Ball of 9 were needed to scoop the millions - a number combination that eluded every player, as it turns out. That’s right - the Mega Millions jackpot went unclaimed on Friday, which means if you were playing for the ultimate jackpot, you would have gone away empty-handed. It's not all bad news though - no winner on Friday means a rollover for this Tuesday's draw, pushing the jackpot total up to a fantastic $47 million! Now that's a silver lining we can get on board with!
And now for the good news - all of which was found at the Saturday night US Powerball draw, where the top jackpot prize of $80 million was scooped by one single ticket! The winner has yet to come forward, but right now, one unknown player in Florida is going to have the best 2015 ever once they realise what they're holding onto - a winning ticket worth $80 million! And if you weren't lucky enough to hit the big one this time, you'll have another chance on Wednesday evening, when the jackpot resets to $40 million - still more than enough to make your dreams of luxury come true!
Things weren't quite so crazy across the pond in the UK National Lottery and EuroMillions draws, with both lottos seeing a rollover to bigger jackpot prizes for the week ahead. The best that Friday night's EuroMillions draw could do was a match of five main numbers and one Lucky Star number for a prize of £544,386 for two lucky players, with the main prize rolling over to £15 million for Tuesday night's draw.
Over in the UK National Lottery on Saturday, a case of déjà vu was taking place, with the main jackpot going to a rollover, and only five main numbers and the Bonus Ball being matched instead for a prize of £71,387. The good news, however, is that Wednesday night's jackpot draw looks to be even more rewarding, with a £7.6 million prize on offer for all ticketholders.
