The odds of winning a EuroMillions jackpot might seem quite remote at 1 in 76,275,360, but that didn’t stop five tickets from doing exactly that on Friday 4 February, 2011. The jackpot last Friday had rolled over from the previous week, and was worth €28,947,728 (around £24,368,199) so each of the five winning tickets now has a value of €5,789,546 (around £4,873,639). The UK did particularly well, with three of the five tickets being purchased by UK players. Another UK player won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number LKG545863.
The EuroMillions results on Friday 4 February were 02, 11, 24, 35 and 47, and the Lucky Star numbers were 05 and 09. Ten players matched the five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Stars to win a second-tier consolation prize of €322,541 (around £226,621) each. 14 players matched five main numbers only to win €65,379 (around £45,936) each, and another 115 players matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win €5,685 (around £3,994) each.
All told, there were more than 1.86 million EuroMillions prizes won last Friday, and now that the jackpot has been won (five times over, no less!) the jackpot total has been reset to the base level of €15 million (around £12 million) for the next draw this Friday 11 February. One of the most overdue Lucky Star numbers that we had previously highlighted made an appearance last week (the number 09) so the most overdue numbers are now 37, 25, 26, 17 and 06, whilst the most overdue Lucky Stars are 03 and 02.
With five tickets having won the EuroMillions jackpot last Friday, there is a good chance that one or more of the winners will choose to go public with news of their success. If that happens then we will of course bring you all of the exciting details just as soon as we can.
