€75 Million EuroMillions Jackpot for Friday 13th
12th July 2012 10:08 AM
The midweek EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday 10 July rolled over for the sixth time in succession after no ticket matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars. That means there is another life-changing fortune to play for in the next game, and players can look forward to the chance of winning a €75 million (£59 million) EuroMillions jackpot this Friday 13 July. The Tuesday EuroMillions results that brought us to this point were 01, 03, 16, 24 and 37, and the Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 08.
Three fortunate winners matched all five of the main EuroMillions numbers as well as one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a substantial second-tier prize of €413,089 (£299,765) each. 10 tickets won €41,309 (£29,976) each by matching the five main numbers only and there were 41 winning tickets at the fourth-tier prize level, each of which won €5,038 (£3,656) by matching four main numbers and both of the Lucky Star numbers. The total number of EuroMillions prizes won on Tuesday was 2,003,107, and in the UK the Millionaire Raffle number (worth £1 million to whoever matched it) was XVX189298.
One of our most overdue main numbers made an appearance in the draw on Tuesday, and that was the number 24. The most overdue main numbers are now 23, 45, 33, 06 and 09, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 04 and 02. As always, we must point out that there is nothing intrinsically special about any of these numbers, and they don’t have any greater chance of appearing than any others. With that caveat in mind, it can still be fun to include one or more of them among your selections, and if doing so helps you to win the jackpot itself you’ll be very glad you did!
Friday 13th is often viewed as being an unlucky date by those who are of a superstitious nature, but there have been some huge EuroMillions jackpots won on that date previously, so there is no reason why the €75 million jackpot shouldn’t be won on this occasion. Play EuroMillions online here so that you have a chance of being the lucky player who defies the Friday 13th superstition and good luck!
Also, it is worth remembering that exactly a year ago today the biggest EuroMillions jackpot ever was won by the lucky scottish couple Colin and Chris Weir, who on the 12th July last year scooped the impressive £161.6 million EuroMillions jackpot.
