14 players came very close to winning the jackpot, but missed out by just one Lucky Star number, and had to settle for a second-tier prize of €120,632 (£81,919) each. 15 tickets matched five main numbers only to win €37,530 (£25,486) each, and 129 tickets secured a prize of €2,182 (£1,482) each by matching four of the main numbers as well as both of the Lucky Stars. There were millions of smaller prizes won at the lower levels, and the total number of prizes landed on Friday was 3,088,746. UK readers who participated in the game will be interested to note that the winning Millionaire Raffle number – which is worth £1 million to the owner of ticket bearing the same – was LJT398744.
Just one overdue number made an appearance on Friday, and that was the Lucky Star number 03. That means the most overdue main numbers for the next game this Tuesday are still 07, 47, 18, 06 and 40, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers have changed to 08 and 06. The jackpot for the next game this Tuesday 16 April will be worth €15 million (around £12 million).
The EuroMillions game wasn’t the only one to delight European lottery players on Friday because the EuroJackpot game also delivered its top prize. One ticket belonging to a player in Germany matched all five main numbers (08, 19, 22, 32 and 40) as well as both Euro numbers (01 and 08) to win a fantastic €46,079,339 (£39,153,614), which just happens to be the biggest jackpot that this game has ever seen. Well done to the player involved and to the owners of more than 702,000 tickets that succeeded in landing consolation prizes. There will now be a brand new jackpot of €10 million to play for in the next EuroJackpot game this Friday 19 April.
It has now been four weeks since the EuroMillions jackpot was successfully landed on a Tuesday, so players will be hoping that the pattern changes this week. Click here to buy your EuroMillions tickets online and if someone wins the €15 million in the midweek game it just might be you! Good luck!
