Nine-Figure EuroMillions Jackpot this Friday!
19th July 2012 9:51 AM
Play EuroMillions this Friday 20 July and you could walk away with a nine-figure jackpot after the top prize in the Tuesday game rolled over yet again. The jackpot this Friday is estimated to be worth around €101,000,000 (around £79 million for UK players) so players are already snapping up tickets to make sure they don’t miss their chance of winning it. Those of you who haven’t yet purchased your tickets for the Friday game are advised to do so without delay, as missing out on your chance to win a jackpot this big wouldn’t be good!
The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 17 July were 02, 07, 24, 43 and 46, and the Lucky Star numbers were 08 and 10. Two players were just one Lucky Star short of winning the Tuesday jackpot, but won a second-tier prize of €699,301 each instead, which will hopefully have helped to console them a little. The third-tier saw ten players win €46,620 (£33,784) each by matching the five main numbers only.
28 EuroMillions tickets matched four of the main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars to win €8,325 (£6,033) each, and 673 tickets won €303 (£219) each after matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. The total number of EuroMillions prizes won on Tuesday was 2,102,023 and in the UK the winning Millionaire Raffle number was ZWT075556.
None of our most overdue numbers appeared on Tuesday, so the most overdue main numbers are still 23, 45, 33, 06 and 09, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 02 and 05. Players who would prefer to include one or more of the numbers that have been picked most often among their selections should consider the main numbers 50, 12, 04, 19 and 14 as well as the Lucky Star numbers 03 and 05. As always, plenty more information about the EuroMillions numbers can be found on our EuroMillions Statistics page. And if you would like to leave your selections entirely to chance, feel free to make use of our very handy Random Number Generator.
The only way to actually increase your chances of winning a EuroMillions prize is to buy more tickets, so the method you use to select your numbers is largely a matter of personal preference. However you choose the numbers you want to play for the €101 million jackpot game this Friday, remember to buy your tickets as soon as possible in order to avoid the rush and good luck!
