EuroMillions Winners Slow to Claim
25th April 2012 10:46 AM
Some EuroMillions players who have already been lucky enough to win substantial prizes in previous games still haven’t claimed those prizes. In the UK, the lottery operator has had to make a public appeal for the winner of a second-tier prize worth £120,249 on Tuesday 10 April to come forward, and there are similar prizes unclaimed in other participating nations. Our advice to everyone who plays EuroMillions is to check the lottery results as soon as possible after every draw and, if you have won a prize, to make any claim required (online players may not need to formally claim some prizes) without delay.
There were no jackpot winners in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 24 April, but there were plenty of non-jackpot winners, so read on to check if you were one of them. The EuroMillions results were 08, 09, 24, 43 and 48, along with the Lucky Star numbers 03 and 05. The winning Millionaire Raffle number was WLP806989.
Three tickets matched all five main numbers plus one Lucky Star number to win a second-tier prize of €341,800 (£239,397) each, and another three tickets (none purchased in the UK) matched five main numbers only to win €113,933 each. There were 29 winning tickets at the fourth-tier prize level, and each of those won €5,893 (£4,128) by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. There were more than 1.66 million prizes won in total.
None of our ‘most overdue’ numbers came up in the midweek draw, so the most overdue main numbers for the next game are still 40, 21, 02, 19 and 42, with 04 and 07 remaining as the most overdue Lucky Star numbers.
Because the EuroMillions jackpot rolled over on Tuesday, the next jackpot this Friday 27 April will be a triple-rollover worth around €44 million (around £36 million). Play EuroMillions online today and don’t forget to claim any prize you win without delay!
