The EuroMillions game began the month of May with a jackpot rollover, which means that players now have a chance of winning around €25 million (around £21 million) in the next game this Friday 4 May. The main numbers drawn in the game on Tuesday 1 May were 04, 05, 15, 19 and 41, and the Lucky Star numbers were 09 and 11. In the UK, the Millionaire Raffle number (which is worth £1 million to whoever has the same number printed on their EuroMillions ticket) was YMB515287.
Two tickets missed out on landing the jackpot by just one Lucky Star number, so both of those tickets won a second-tier consolation prize of €425,249 (£303,742) instead. Nine tickets matched five main numbers without either Lucky Star number to win a third-tier prize of €31,500 (£22,499) each.
There were 28 tickets that won €5,062 (£3,616) each after matching four of the main numbers along with both Lucky Stars, whilst 533 tickets matched four main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €232 (£166) each. The consolation prize for matching four main numbers only – a feat achieved by 1,317 tickets – was €94 (£67), and the total number of prizes won on Tuesday was 1,455,442.
Our ‘overdue numbers’ ended their dry spell on Tuesday when the number 41 was drawn as one of the five main numbers. This means that the most overdue main numbers are now 40, 21, 02, 42 and 38, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 04 and 07. Of course, the most commonly-picked numbers have just as much chance of coming up again, so if you would like to consider adding any of those to your entries, the main numbers to look at are 50, 12, 04, 19 and 36, and the Lucky Star numbers that are picked most often are 03 and 05.
Every line of numbers that you enter for the EuroMillions lottery game has exactly the same chance of landing you the jackpot, so however you choose your numbers, play EuroMillions online today and this Friday could be your lucky day!
