Out of the five major world lotteries that we feature here at Online Lotto only one solitary lottery jackpot was won over the weekend. The UK’s National Lottery jackpot made two lucky ticket holder multi-millionaires but the Irish Lottery, The EuroMillions and both of the US’ Powerball and Mega Millions lotteries all rolled over to their next draw dates.

If you had hopes of becoming a lottery millionaire playing any of the lotteries featured here at Online Lotto this weekend then you’d better have bought tickets for the UK’s National Lottery as it was the only lottery to find jackpot winners this weekend. In fact it found two. Two lucky ticket holders for Saturday night’s National Lottery draw shared the £5.2 million jackpot, winning £2.6 million each. Not a bad return for a quid!

The Irish Lottery saw 2 lucky players take home €25,000 each in Saturday night’s draw for matching 5 main numbers plus the bonus ball but the jackpot eluded everybody and adds to Wednesday night’s draw which has an estimated jackpot of €2.5 million.

The EuroMillions lottery also managed to avoid being won even though it’s sold throughout Europe by millions of people each week. The £27 million jackpot will rollover to next Friday’s draw which has an estimated jackpot of £39 million and will definitely be worth a flutter.

The US Mega Millions wasn’t won on Friday and this means that the multi-state lottery from Atlanta, Georgia will have an enormous roll-over jackpot of $170 million for Tuesday night’s draw. You can get you Mega Millions tickets right here at Online Lotto by clicking the Mega Millions link below.

The US Powerball lottery also rolls over to Wednesday night’s draw which has an estimated jackpot of $30 due to the fact that last Saturday one lucky ticket holder scooped the massive $189 million jackpot .

So you’re either one of the two people to buy tickets for the UK’s National Lottery who woke up with big smiles on their faces (and quite possibly big hangovers) or lady luck passed you by over the weekend but the good thing about all of these lotteries rolling over is that the jackpots for next week’s draws are that much bigger.
