There will be a EuroMillions rollover jackpot this Friday 19 November that gives players the chance to win €29 million (around £25 million) after no player matched the five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers required to win the top prize in the previous draw. The EuroMillions results which proved to be so elusive on Friday 12 November were 07, 19, 23, 29 and 47, and the two Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 06. Of these, two main numbers (07 and 19) and one Lucky Star (01) were previously identified as ones that were most overdue to make an appearance, which is a pretty impressive 42.8% success rate!
Those who want to see if even more ‘overdue’ numbers crop up in the next draw will need to know that the most overdue main numbers are now 14, 10, 34, 44 and 18, and that the most overdue Lucky Stars are 02 and 07. Players are of course free to include some, all or none of those numbers in their entries, as they see fit, and from the perspective of probability it won’t affect your odds of winning one iota. That said, anyone who decided to play all of the most overdue numbers last week would have won a prize of €9.00 (around £6.40), so that approach can certain pay off.
10 players matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €373,261 (around £263,738) each. Another 16 players matched five main numbers only to win a third-tier prize of €66,203 (around £46,778) each, and 157 players matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win €4,819 (around £3,405) each. In total, more than 2.19 million EuroMillions prizes were won, and in the UK ten Millionaire Raffle prizes were won, each worth £1,000,000. The ten winning Millionaire Raffle numbers were: SBG533371, WCL449361, WCL539346, WCN808991, WCR916753, WCT876099, WCW033665, WCY777797, WDB722999 and WDD461304.
The Millionaire Raffle draw in the UK now reverts to the usual format where just one player will become £1 richer, but with €29 million to play for in the main EuroMillions game itself this Friday we doubt there will be many UK players who find this anything to complain about. Play EuroMillions online and maybe one of your entries will be the one that stops the jackpot rolling any further!
