€25 Million Jackpot for EuroMillions Lottery Players
2nd May 2013 9:33 AM
There will be an estimated €25 million jackpot for EuroMillions lottery players to try and win this Friday 3 May (that’s around £21 million for players in the United Kingdom), and that’s because no winner was found in the midweek game on Tuesday 30 April. The main numbers drawn on Tuesday were 13, 36, 40, 43 and 50, and the Lucky Star numbers were 05 and 09. Although no ticket won the jackpot, players won a total of 1,487,223 consolation prizes, and one of them made someone a millionaire!
The millionaire-making consolation prize went to one ticket that matched all five of the main numbers plus one of the Lucky Stars, and the exact sum landed was €1,007,619. This isn’t the first time that a EuroMillions consolation prize has been worth seven figures, but it’s always good to see another one crop up, especially when the jackpot has rolled over.
Eight tickets won a third-tier prize worth €41,984 (£27,821) each by matching the five main numbers only, and 36 other tickets matched four main numbers plus both of the Lucky Stars to win €4,665 (£3,091) each. The prize for matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star, which went to the owners of 637 tickets, was €230 (£152). All other winning tickets landed smaller prizes, with the smallest prize (for matching two main numbers only) having a value of €4.80 (£3.20).
Just one of our most overdue numbers appeared in the Tuesday draw, and that was the main number 36. The main numbers that are most overdue to appear now are 47, 18, 06, 09 and 31, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 08 and 01. For those who prefer following so-called ’hot’ numbers, the most often picked main numbers are 50, 04, 44, 11 and 19, and the most often picked Lucky Stars are 03 and 05.
Jackpots were landed in four of the nine EuroMillions games that were played in April 2013, so it will be interesting to see how many jackpots can be won in May. Head this way to buy your tickets for the next game this Friday and good luck!
