Last night saw the Powerball and Irish Lottery jackpots rollover as their top prizes eluded capture during the Wednesday night draws. The UK National Lottery jackpot was won again, meaning that there was at least one lottery millionaire made last night. Keep reading our lottery results article to see if you are the lucky National Lottery jackpot winner or if you won one of the millions of smaller prizes given away last night.

The UK National Lottery had a £2,969,627 to play for last night and one lucky ticket holder scooped the lot by matching all six main lottery numbers. A further five ticket holders matched five main lottery numbers plus the bonus ball to each take home £182,746. Last night’s UK National Lottery numbers are; 16, 30, 34, 37, 41 and 42 with the Bonus Ball being drawn as 5.

The Irish Lottery has been on a lean streak recently with its jackpot rolling over on a regular basis and last night was no exception. Even on St Patrick’s Day the luck of the Irish was nowhere to be seen with no ticket holders managing to match all six main lottery numbers, so the £5,512,253 jackpot rolls on. The lottery numbers selected during the Wednesday night Irish Lottery draw were; 1, 24, 26, 27, 32 and 33 with the Bonus Ball being drawn as 35.

Last night’s US Powerball Lottery had a $20 million to play for but no ticket holders matched those all-important lottery numbers and the jackpot rolls over to Saturday night’s draw, which has an estimated jackpot of $28 million. Last week the $211 million Powerball jackpot was won in New Jersey, fuelling speculation that the winner was an international online lotto player but as further lottery news emerges the winner appears to be a US resident.
