World Lottery Weekend Jackpot Round Up

This weekend sees the usual schedule of lotteries drawn round the world, including the Euromillions, drawn at 9.30 CET on Friday 11th January 2013, the Powerball drawn at 22.59 ET on Saturday 12th January 2013 and the UK Lotto, drawn at 21.00 GMT. But which lotteries will be the best to play this weekend? Which have the biggest and best jackpots on offer? Here is a brief roundup of our lottery picks this weekend.


The Euromillions has an estimated double rollover jackpot of €33 / £27 million on offer this Friday evening, after the last jackpot was scooped on New Year’s Day by three jackpot winners.

The SuperEnalotto has continued its snowballing rollover spree, and has clocked up an immense jackpot of €36,800,000 in time for the next draw on Saturday 12th January 2013. Plus, with no jackpot or Match Five plus the Jolly winner since before Christmas, that prize fund is just bursting for some lucky player to win it!


The US Powerball is one of the most popular multi-state lotteries in the USA, and the jackpot is slowly creeping up after rolling over since Boxing Day, when it was last won. The estimated jackpot for the draw on Saturday 12th January 2013 is now $80,000, and is sure to make a guaranteed happy new year for whoever wins it!

Irish Lottery

The Irish Lottery may not be the biggest in the world, but it has been rolling over now since 15th December 2012, meaning this seven-time rollover jackpot is now worth €7 million in time for the draw on Saturday 12th January 2013. This is the highest jackpot seen on the Irish Lotto since the end of October last year, so it is certainly worth a ticket or two!
