Lottery players around the world watched the EuroMillions Mega Jackpot draw with baited breath on Friday 1 October, but no player managed to match all five main numbers (01, 04, 06, 27 and 48) as well as both Lucky Star numbers (01 and 06) so the €100,000,000 now rolls over to the next draw. That gives EuroMillions players a Mega Jackpot rollover jackpot of €129,000,000 (around £112,000,000) to play for this Friday 8 October!
Although the EuroMillions Mega Jackpot itself proved elusive last Friday, 16 players came very close to winning it and missed out by just one Lucky Star number. Those players won a second-tier consolation prize of €392,669 (around £268,412) each, so they have plenty of cash with which to buy themselves a few extra tickets next time around. Another 18 players matched the five main numbers but neither of the Lucky Star numbers to win €99,052 (around £67,707) each. In total there were more than 3.59 million EuroMillions prizes won last Friday, and one UK player won a prize of £1,000,000 by matching the Millionaire Raffle number PXY889884.
Now that there is an even bigger EuroMillions Mega Jackpot up for grabs this Friday 8 October, ticket sales will soar to even greater heights and the number of prizes that are won could climb proportionately. Our EuroMillions Statistics page reveals that the most overdue main numbers are 20, 14, 10, 23 and 43, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 02 and 07, so if you are in need to any numbers for your entries you might want to consider including one or more of those.
EuroMillions players who want to improve their chance of winning the Mega Jackpot rollover this Friday should consider forming a EuroMillions syndicate. We have recommended this approach many times and instructions on how to go about it can be found in our article on How to Increase Your Chances of Winning, so if you haven’t seen that you might want to take a look at it today!
Whether you play EuroMillions as an individual or as part of a syndicate, be sure to play EuroMillions online to ensure that your entries are as safe as possible and good luck in the draw this Friday!
