Roll Down Let Down

Well the weekend’s lottery results were a bit of a let down for roll down fans.  The Euromillions super mega guaranteed rollover, or whatever it was called, produced one winner of the entire amount and even they live in Spain.  I suppose their economy needs a boost but I always think it is a shame when such a large sum ends up with one individual whereas if it had rolled down to the next tier many more people would have benefited.

The same applies to the UK national lottery where the first ever quadruple rollover was shared by five people – better than one, I admit – but I suppose a lot of us were hoping it would roll down to the match-five plus bonus category to be shared between more players.

Oh, well, let’s hope they are like buses; you wait 18 years for the first quadruple rollover and then more come along behind.

Quadruple Rollover

In all the fuss about the special £80 millions draw over at EuroMillions, its is important to remember there’s a huge rollover in the regular National Lottery this week.

Ok, so the prospect of winning £80,000,000 shouldn’t be sniffed at, but remember that your chances of winning the Lotto game on the National lottery are a lot higher.  Given that this is a Quadruple rollover and that the prize money can roll no more, then playing Lotto (for less than half the price of a EuroMillions ticket) with the chance of winning £19.6 million is probably your best bet. Also remember that a lot of others will play the Euro game and not buy a ticket for Lotto, increasing your chances of keeping a larger portion of any prizes you may win.

I’ve made my decision; a ticket for both! LOL
