Ninth Rollover For Euromillions Jackpot
23rd July 2012 9:49 AM
There were mixed fortunes for Euromillions players as the draw unfolded last Friday, 20th July 2012. Although no single ticket holder was lucky enough to match all five numbers and two stars to win that massive jackpot of €101 / £79 million, an impressive seven ticket holders were just one away, matching as they did five numbers and one star. This meant they took away a none-too-shabby €330,815 / £241,674 each. Not bad for an evenings’ work! This means the Euromillions sees a nine times rollover for its next draw.
The winning numbers on Friday 20th July 2012 were 10, 19, 23, 45, 49 and the Lucky Stars were 9 and 10. So far, reports show that along with the seven ticket holders to match five and one star were another seven to match five numbers to win €110,271 / £80,558. A further 3.7 million ticket holders across Europe were lucky enough to match from 2 numbers upwards, which gives some idea as to the sheer amount of tickets sold for this super rollover draw.
Plus, with the jackpot due to roll over again for the draw on Tuesday 24th July 2012, plus the excitement of the UK Millionaire’s Raffle on Friday 27th July 2012 for UK ticket holders, it seems those massive ticket sales will not be decreasing any time soon.
The start of the week is a perfect opportunity for players to think about their plays for Tuesday and Friday, and to not leave their ticket buying until the last minute. With lottery kiosks set to be ringing right up until the last minute, players across Europe and beyond may find it more convenient to use a Lottery Concierge Service. This is an online retailer who will not only buy your tickets for you, but will keep a record of your numbers and tell you if you have won. No more scrabbling in your handbag for forgotten tickets now!
However you decide to play the Euromillions this week, we at Euromillions.com wish you all the luck in the world and hope your numbers come up!
