The fall happened even though the the lottery's website, which was swamped on the first night, was working well the second time around.
The charities to benefit from 30 per cent of ticket sales - WWF-UK, the British Red Cross, the Arthritis Research Campaign, the National Deaf Children's Society and DebRA - shared £142,139, down from about £147,000 last week.
"Our goal is to deliver £150m in new funds to charities each year," said Craig Freeman, managing director of lottery operator Chariot. He admitted it had some way to go.
Chariot put out a viral advert showing spoof scenes of managers being spanked for the problems that blighted the draw.
