The EuroMillions jackpot wasn’t won by any player last Friday, so we now have the chance to play for EuroMillions rollover riches worth approximately €29 million (around £25 million) this Friday 16 April. Win the jackpot outright and if you put your fortune in a safe place that pays just a minimal amount of interest you could spend as much as €1 million a year for the next thirty years without going broke. Of course, if you spend a bit more carefully and/or you get a decent amount of interest on your win, your fortune would last a great deal longer!
As always, the only thing standing between you and the millionaire lifestyle are seven EuroMillions numbers. The EuroMillions results last Friday 09 April were 07, 21, 23, 24 and 44, with the numbers 03 and 04 being drawn as the Luck Stars. The number 23 was highlighted last week as one of the most overdue EuroMillions numbers, so including one or more of those really can be useful sometimes. The most overdue numbers that you might want to think about including among your entries this week are 03, 48, 02, 06 and 40, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 01 and 08.
Last Friday, six players matched the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win €504,824 (around £349,803) each. Five players matched the five main numbers only and won €171,913 (around £119,122) each, and there were 126 third-tier prize winners who collected €4,873 (around £3,376) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
With twelve prize tiers in total, you don’t necessarily have to win the jackpot to have a profitable EuroMillions experience. Whilst we all focus on the odds of winning the jackpot (which are 1 in 76,275,360) it’s important for us to remember that the odds of winning a substantial second tier prize are more than ten times better (1 in 5,448,240) and the odds of winning any prize at all are 1 in 24.
Does that mean you’re guaranteed to win a prize if you buy 24 tickets, either for yourself or as part of a syndicate? Of course not. But you would be 24 times more likely to win than you would with a single ticket. And it goes without saying that any one of your tickets could land the jackpot!
Whether you want to buy yourself a single ticket or try and improve your chances by entering multiple lines of numbers, play EuroMillions online today and you could be just seven numbers away from all the financial success you have ever wanted. Good luck!
