Since you are probably very busy yourself, ELS Lotto will provide an overview of the latest lotto news. What Jackpot was (finally) hit? Which lottery is new or is going to change? Which lotto winners have we seen on the Internet during the past week? Every week, ELS Lotto gives you an overview of the main lottery events, news and tips.
Overview of the previous week (13 June through 19 June 2016)
The lucky winner of the MAX lotto scored the MAXimum jackpot. The winner comes from Ontario and used the following numbers to reel in the big prize: 1, 16, 20, 29, 33, 44, and 46. The bonus number was 15.
The jackpot for the next drawing begins at $13 million again.
It seems to be the week of single winners. In England, there was also 1 lucky winner who can now call himself a multimillionaire. The lucky winner can now add nearly 22 million British pounds, £21,054,380 to be specific, to his or her bank account. It was the sixth largest prize ever disbursed to 1 winner from the National Lottery.
This time it was a lucky scratch-off ticket instead of a lottery winner. Imagine spending $30 and seeing a number with a $15,000,000 amount next to it, only to see it in the row of winning numbers moments later.
The third time is a charm: this is the third time this week that we are sharing the news of a jackpot won by a single ticketholder. In Quebec, Canada, the numbers 7, 8, 22, 32, 40, 45, and the bonus number 25 scored someone the grand prize of $12.8 million from Lotto 649.
Although the number of millions is quite a bit lower than the other amounts mentioned on this page, we are going to conclude with this week’s most wonderful news. Peter Congdon, a previous jackpot winner, has donated more than £1 million to the Merlin MS Centre. Peter’s wife, Rosemary, has had MS for more than 30 years. This donation makes further research into multiple sclerosis, a terrible illness, possible.
