Outrage as Mercurian National Lottery numbers are the same

Mercurians are outraged after the National Lottery returned the same winning numbers two weeks in a row. The jackpot had rolled over after no winners were found last time around, and when the combination of 05, 09, 18, 27, 41 and 48 appeared for the second straight week, citizens were quick to voice their anger.

In Mercury, there are no lucky dips and players keep the same numbers from week to week, so once again it means there are no jackpot winners. However, the lucky people who matched 5 numbers suddenly find themselves almost Cr 20,000 richer than they were two weeks prior.

The jackpot is expected to rise to an estimated Cr 13.5 million for next week's draw, however tickets will increase from Cr 1.00 to Cr 1.50 due to the jackpot surpassing Cr 10 million tonight.
