Lottery commentators are predicting a ‘ticket frenzy’ over the next day or two after the EuroMillions jackpot rolled over for the ninth time in a row on Tuesday. The multi-rollover jackpot for the next game this Friday 1 June is estimated to be worth around €116 million (around £92 million) so those who were waiting for the advertised jackpot to reach nine figures will now be very keen to participate. Whether the nine-figure jackpot will pay out this Friday or roll over again is, of course, something that we will only know after the draw has taken place.
The EuroMillions results on Tuesday 29 May were 08, 15, 17, 25 and 28, and the Lucky Star numbers were 03 and 11. There were 10 tickets that matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win €169,380 (£119,832) each, and another 28 tickets matched the five main numbers without either Lucky Star to win €20,164 (£14,266) each. 52 tickets won a fourth-tier prize of €5,429 (£3,841) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
At the lower prize levels, a total of 3,046,184 tickets won prizes of up to €66.80 (£47.20) by matching up to four main numbers and one Lucky Star, and we wouldn’t mind betting that many of those winners will be trying to win a whole lot more this Friday! In the UK, one player became a brand new millionaire after winning £1,000,000 with the Millionaire Raffle number JPX774504.
There was still no luck on Tuesday as far as our most overdue numbers were concerned, but maybe that will change this Friday. The numbers to look out for are the main numbers 42, 14, 07, 23 and 18, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 04 and 10.
With the predicted ticket frenzy expected to gain momentum as the time of the draw approaches, it is recommended that you play EuroMillions online to avoid any offline rush. Consider buying your tickets today so that you don’t forget and good luck with that €116 million jackpot on Friday!
