Weekend Rollovers Push up Wednesday Night Jackpots

Several lottery draws ended in rollovers on Saturday night, allowing their jackpots to grow a little larger for their respective Wednesday night drawings.

Three UK National lottery players managed to match 5 main numbers and the bonus number to win a second tier prize of £115,333, but nobody got all six main numbers so the Wednesday night jackpot has risen to an estimated £5.9 million.

Saturday's Canada Lotto 649 rollover caused the jackpot to grow to an estimated $7 million and some lucky lottery player could be whooping for joy if they win Wednesday's Florida Lotto jackpot because the rollover has pumped up its value $31 million.

At $46 million, the California SuperLotto Plus jackpot is larger still, but the US Powerball offers players the biggest jackpot on Wednesday because some lucky Powerball player might secure a mid-week win of $80 million.
