Defy Superstition with EuroMillions
9th August 2010 10:10 AM
Friday 13 is believed by many to be a particularly unlucky day, and although lots of superstitious people have experienced mishaps on Friday 13 in the past, most rational commentators point out that it is probably the expectation of accidents that makes superstitious people more accident prone in the first place. Those who do not allow superstitions to rule their lives can be just as lucky on Friday 13 as on any other day of the year, and this week you can defy superstition with EuroMillions by trying to land a jackpot on Friday 13 August!
Last Friday 6 August the EuroMillions jackpot was worth €15,000,000 (£12,502,500) and it was won by a single player who matched all five main numbers (13, 25, 28, 29 and 42) as well as the two Lucky Star numbers (04 and 05). One player in the UK won £1,000,000 by matching the Millionaire Raffle number FVJ384492.
Of course, there is a lot more to the EuroMillions lottery game than the jackpot, and in total more than 1.74 million non-jackpot prizes were also won. Three players matched the five main EuroMillions numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win €951,969 (around £693,573) each, whilst six players matched five numbers only to win €135,077 (around £98,412) each. Even matching just four main numbers and one Lucky Star was enough to help 104 EuroMillions players win €5,566 (around £4,055) each.
Because last week’s jackpot was won outright, the jackpot for the next draw on Friday 13 August will once again be worth €15 million (around £12 million). The odds of winning the jackpot in the next game are exactly the same as they are for any other week, so our advice is to defy superstition and have a go at becoming the next Euromillionaire this Friday.
If you want to take our EuroMillions Statistics into consideration when selecting your numbers this week then you will be interested to note that the main numbers which are “most overdue” to be drawn are currently 48, 20, 14, 27 and 05, and the Lucky Star numbers that are “most overdue” are 06 and 01. Whether you choose to play any of those numbers or not, play EuroMillions online today and you just might be a big winner who proves that Friday 13 really can be just as lucky as any other day of the year. Good luck!
