After weeks and weeks of rollovers the $211.7 million Powerball Lottery jackpot was won by one ticket holder last night. The UK National Lottery also gave away its top prize but this time the £2.5 million jackpot was shared by two ticket holders while the Irish Lottery rolled over, following last week’s £16.7 million haul for one lucky player.

The US Powerball Lottery had rolled over time and time again until last night when one lucky ticket holder matched all five main lottery numbers plus the Powerball to walk away with this enormous lottery fortune. The winning lottery numbers selected during last night’s Powerball Lottery draw were; 11, 34, 41, 49 and 55 with the Powerball being drawn as 20. Along with the jackpot winner there were also 14 second tier prizes awarded.

The Irish Lottery jackpot had climbed to an enormous£16.7 million before it was won by one lucky ticket holder last Wednesday. This was the second largest jackpot in the Irish Lottery’s history. The jackpot was reseeded at £2 million for last Saturday night’s draw, which rolled over, making last night’s jackpot £2,583,672 but as nobody matched all six main lottery numbers the cash rolls over until Saturday night. Last night’s Irish Lottery numbers are; 3, 25, 30, 33, 37 and 41 with the Bonus Ball being draw as 18.

The UK National Lottery jackpot was once again claimed at the first time of asking. With the exception of last week’s triple-rollover jackpot, which was only the fourth in its 15 year history, the UK National Lottery jackpot rarely climbs to such figures, with the majority of draws giving away the top prize. The Wednesday night UK National Lottery numbers are; 2, 10, 16, 19, 33 and 45 with the Bonus Ball being drawn as 30.
