The Wednesday night UK National Lottery draw had a lower than expected £1,580,124 jackpot to play for, possibly due to the England World Cup game against Slovenia. However, when seven players matched all six main lottery numbers it was to be pocket change for last night’s lottery winners, with each jackpot winner taking home just £225,732.

In a not so unusual event the UK National Lottery awarded its jackpot winners prizes more becoming of someone who has matched five numbers plus the Bonus Ball. Last night’s UK National Lottery numbers are; 5, 9, 13, 17, 22 and 27 with the Bonus Ball being drawn as 30. It wasn’t just the jackpot winners who were left a little short, the second prize winners, who matched five main lottery numbers plus the Bonus Ball only received £13,891 but this is also because there were a lot of winners, 35 to be precise.

Last night the Irish Lottery had a two million jackpot to play for following the 3.5 million jackpot being won on Saturday night. However, none of the players who bought tickets for last night’s Irish Lottery draw managed to match all six main lottery numbers so the jackpot rolls over to the next draw. Last night’s Irish Lottery numbers are; 11, 12, 18, 21, 32 and 33 with the Bonus Ball being drawn as 7.

The US Powerball Lottery jackpot had rolled over for the last four weeks, climbing to $97 million in the process but it was to troll over no more as two lucky ticket holders matched all five main lottery numbers plus the Powerball to share the huge jackpot.
