Another EuroMillions jackpot was landed by one very lucky player last Friday 20 November. The five main numbers were 5, 9, 28, 43 and 47, and the two Lucky Stars were 2 and 9. The jackpot was worth €15 million (around £13 million). Seven other players matched five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win a very nice second prize worth €457,717 (around £412,000) and six players matched the five main numbers only to win €151,541 (around £136,000) each.
Whilst many other lottery games require rollovers to make eight-figure jackpots possible, EuroMillions gives players the chance to win that kind of money week after week, and rollovers just make the jackpots even more gargantuan. We should appreciate this fact, and not allow the fact that €15 million jackpots are commonplace to dull our sense of just how much money that is.
To put a regular €15 million EuroMillions jackpot into some kind of perspective, if you had a job that paid you a salary of €100,000 per year, you would need to work for 150 years to earn the same amount! If you had a job paying €50,000 per year then the same task would take you 300 years!
Clearly, the only way for most of us to get our hands on €15 million or more in one lifetime is to win the EuroMillions lottery, and the fact that two lucky players have done just that in the last two weeks should inspire us all to continue pursuing the dream with enthusiasm. The reality is that everyone who plays EuroMillions is potentially just a few days away from becoming €15 million richer – and all you have to do to enjoy that kind of potential is buy yourself a ticket!
We congratulate the latest EuroMillions jackpot winner and encourage everyone reading this article to renew their appreciation for the exciting opportunity that the world’s biggest lottery game gives us. Play EuroMillions online today and next week we could be writing about you!
