Lottery players in the UK were excited about a double-rollover jackpot worth over £9.9 million last night, but the UK Lotto results for Wednesday 23rd May 2012 didn’t lead to anyone matching all six main numbers. That means there will be a triple-rollover jackpot of around £14.9 million to play for this Saturday 26th May, so when you consider that the odds of winning the UK Lotto jackpot are around 1 in 13.9 million, it is easy to see that the potential jackpot payout is even bigger than the odds of winning it!
Latest UK National Lottery / Lotto Results for 23 May 2012
There were 12 winning tickets at the second-tier prize level, and each of those won £67,862 by matching five of the main numbers as well as the Bonus Ball. Another 389 tickets matched five main numbers without the Bonus Ball to win £1,308 each, and 412,506 tickets won either £51 or £10 each by matching four or three main numbers.
Many players will choose to buy themselves an extra ticket or two for the next UK Lotto game because of the extra-large jackpot that is up for grabs. For anyone who wants to include one or more ‘overdue’ numbers among their selections, the most overdue Lotto numbers right now are 29 – 11 – 43 – 14 – 32 – 45. Of course, we will just have to wait and see whether any of those numbers help someone to land the £14.9 million jackpot this weekend.
Those of you who play the Irish Lotto game will be interested to note that there will also be a rollover jackpot up for grabs in the next draw this Saturday because no player matched all six main numbers (11 – 28 – 29 – 32 – 34 – 41) in the midweek game. The rollover Irish Lotto jackpot will be worth around €4 million.
We congratulate everyone who won a lottery prize in either of these midweek Lotto games and we hope that players fare even better in the rollover jackpot games this Saturday. And don’t forget that there is also a massive £70/€87 million jackpot up for grabs in the EuroMillions game this Friday 25th May!
