And what were those numbers? We’re glad you asked! The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 16 April were 01, 11, 22, 33 and 50, and the Lucky Star numbers were 04 and 06. The Lucky Star 06 had been previously highlighted as one of the most overdue to make an appearance, so well done to anyone who decided to include it – especially if it helped you to win a prize of any kind.
There were 1,787,532 prizes won on Tuesday in addition to the jackpot itself, and the biggest was worth €124,935 (£80,930) to each of eight players who successfully matched all five of the main numbers as well as one of the Lucky Stars. The owners of 50 tickets won €6,663 (£4,316) each by matching the five main numbers on their own, and a fourth-tier prize of €1,831 (£1,186) was won by each of 91 tickets that matched four main numbers as well as both Lucky Star numbers. As always, players in the UK were almost as keen for the Millionaire Raffle number as they were for the EuroMillions results themselves, and the winning number on Tuesday was SMJ873006.
The EuroMillions jackpot win on Tuesday was the first that Spain has had this year, so it is nice to see the country appear on the leader board. Of the nine official EuroMillions nations, Austria, Ireland and Luxembourg have yet to win a jackpot in 2013, but we still have more than two-thirds of the year to go, so there is plenty of time for that to change.
Are any of the countries just mentioned destined to win the €15 million jackpot this Friday, or does fate have something quite different in store? Once again, the only way to find out is to wait and see, so click here to secure your own EuroMillions entry online and may your numbers prove lucky!
