Lottery players around the world will be attempting to win a EuroMillions jackpot worth around €176 million (around £138 million) this Friday 3 August, with twelve rollovers having taken place since the last win on 19 June. The EuroMillions game has a jackpot cap of €190 million, so if no ticket matches all of the numbers required to land the top prize this Friday, the resulting rollover could well take the jackpot to that level. We will talk about that more if it actually happens, but right now there is no reason why we shouldn’t expect someone to win the €176 million that is currently available.
The EuroMillions results for the game on Tuesday 31 July were 04, 29, 35, 36 and 39, and the Lucky Star numbers were 08 and 09. There were six tickets that were able to match all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to land a prize of €384,462 (£281,708) each at the second tier, and twelve tickets matched the five main numbers without either Lucky Star to win €64,077 (£46,951) each at the third tier.
64 tickets won €6,007 (£4,402) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars, and 1,298 tickets matched four main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €259 (£189) each. There were more than 3.39 million other winning tickets that won smaller prizes of up to €135 (£99) across the lower prize tiers, and in the UK one player won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number DYM188102.
Talking of the Millionaire Raffle game, there are still 15 missing winners from the special game on Friday 27 July which created 100 winners of £1 million each. If you are a UK reader who bought yourself a EuroMillions ticket for that draw, be sure to check your numbers against the results on this page because if you matched one of them, you can claim one of those £1 million prizes for yourself!
Winning a million isn’t something to be sniffed at, but winning €176 million would obviously be a whole lot better. The good news is that everyone reading these words can give themselves the chance of doing just that – simply buy your EuroMillions tickets here for the draw this Friday and see what fate has in store for you. Good luck!
