The rollover jackpot eluded EuroMillions players in the game on Friday 28 October. The main numbers drawn in that game were 16, 17, 20, 39 and 50, and the Lucky Star numbers were 04 and 08. The jackpot was worth €26.9 million (£23.7 million) but because no player matched all five main numbers plus both Lucky Stars, the sum has been rolled over, giving the jackpot in the next game this Tuesday 1 November an estimated value of €33 million (around £29 million).
Not only did the jackpot itself elude EuroMillions players last Friday, but only three tickets managed to pick up a second-tier prize. Each of those tickets matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €599,184, so the fortunate trio are now more than half a million euros better off than they were last Friday morning!
There were six tickets which matched five main numbers only, and each of those won a third-tier prize of €99,864 (£63,978) as a result. 63 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win €4,755 (£3,047) each, and another 1,118 tickets won €234 (£150) each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. More than 2.86 million EuroMillions prizes were won in total, and with a double rollover jackpot up for grabs in the next game we can be fairly certain that plenty more will be won this Tuesday!
The most overdue main numbers in the EuroMillions game right now are 43, 41, 11, 03 and 24, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 07 and 01, so if you fancy including any of those among your entries, feel free. As always, we won’t know for sure whether or not any of those numbers will help someone to win the jackpot until the EuroMillions lottery balls have actually been drawn, so now is the time to play EuroMillions online and give yourself a chance of becoming the next EuroMillionaire. Good luck!
