The EuroMillions jackpot last Friday 02 April was won by a single ticket for the second week running, though this time the winning ticket was not purchased by a player in Britain. The lucky winner scooped €15,000,000 (around £13,339,500) by matching all five main numbers (12, 18, 24, 26 and 45) and both Lucky Stars (04 and 05) – a feat that appears to be effortless for the people who manage to do it, but which actually involves beating odds of 1 in 76,275,360!
We don’t yet know who bought this latest winning ticket, so it could belong to an individual player or a lottery syndicate. Either way, with €15 million in the bank it’s a safe bet that the winner(s) will have more than a few good reasons to throw a celebration party or two, and they aren’t the only ones who will be happy about the latest batch of EuroMillions results…
10 players matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €303,895 (around £198,533) each, and another 12 players matched the five main numbers only to each win a prize worth €71,867 (around £46,950). 142 players matched four main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers to win €4,338 (around £2,834) each.
All told, more than 1.86 million EuroMillions prizes were won in the draw last Friday, so there will be plenty of happy winners returning to work this week. Of course, those who haven’t yet won a major EuroMillions prize will now be hoping to do so in the next draw this Friday 09 April, when the jackpot will once again be worth €15 million (around £13 million).
