€166 Million Midsummer Night Jackpot!
20th June 2013 8:23 AM
EuroMillions players will be able to celebrate the longest day of 2013 this Friday 21 June by giving themselves the chance to win a multi-rollover jackpot worth €166 million (£141 million)! This massive midsummer night opportunity was created by a sixth consecutive rollover in the midweek game on Tuesday, when no player was able to match all five main numbers (17, 24, 33, 41 and 44) as well as both Lucky Star numbers (01 and 11). Hopefully someone will fare better on Friday!
13 is traditionally viewed as being an unlucky number, but there were 13 very fortunate players on Tuesday who won €176,076 (£118,798) each by matching all five main numbers and one Lucky Star. Another 21 players matched five main numbers only to win €36,333 (£24,514) each, and a fourth-tier prize of €4,239 (£2,860) went to each of 90 players who matched four main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars.
As always, the number of consolation prize winners increased as the prizes themselves decreased in value. The total number of prizes won on Tuesday was 3,636,943, which is higher than average for a midweek draw but perfectly understandable given the huge amount of money that was on offer.
Now that there is an even bigger jackpot up for grabs in the next game this Friday, we can expect even more prizes to be won. With any luck the jackpot itself will be landed, but if not there will still be plenty of ways to show a nice profit thanks to each entry having a 1 in 13 chance of winning a prize across any of the prize tiers.
It seems to us that this would be a very good time to highlight both the most overdue and most often picked numbers for those of you who intend to improve your odds of success by playing multiple entries. The most overdue main numbers right now are 18, 23, 02, 21 and 30, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 08 and 04. At the opposite extreme, the most often picked main numbers are 50, 04, 44, 11 and 19, and the most often picked Lucky Stars are 03 and 05.
