The EuroMillions jackpot is fast approaching Superdraw levels after notching up a sequence of eight consecutive rollovers, the eighth taking place last Friday 25 May. The EuroMillions results were 12, 22, 35, 46 and 49, with 02 and 08 appearing as the Lucky Star numbers. Although the main number 12 was previously highlighted as being most overdue to be drawn, its selection on Friday didn’t help anyone land the jackpot, so the jackpot in the midweek game this Tuesday 29 May will be worth around €99 million (around £79 million).
When you consider that a special EuroMillions Superdraw game usually offers a guaranteed jackpot of €100 million, you’ll see that we weren’t exaggerating when we said that the current jackpot is approaching Superdraw levels. This will undoubtedly make the EuroMillions game even more appealing for casual players, so lottery retailers are bracing themselves for yet another increase in demand for tickets.
There were 9 tickets that matched the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win a consolation prize of €248,847 (£177,060) each, and 11 tickets won a third-tier prize of €67,867 (£48,289 ) each by matching the five main numbers only. 124 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win €3,010 (£2,142) each, whilst 1,664 tickets won €196 (£139) each by matching four main numbers and just one of the Lucky Stars.
The total number of prizes won in the EuroMillions lottery game on Tuesday was 3,581,887. There was also a Millionaire Raffle prize of £1,000,000 that was won by one EuroMillions player in the UK who matched the winning number HPN691110.
For players who want to consider including one or more of our ‘most overdue’ numbers on their EuroMillions play slips for the game this Tuesday, the most overdue main numbers are now 42, 14, 07, 23 and 18, and the most overdue Lucky Stars are 04 and 10. Play EuroMillions online today and good luck in landing yourself a big win!
