Early Christmas for EuroMillions Winner
20th December 2010 9:38 AM
Christmas must feel like it has come early for the owner of one EuroMillions ticket which matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars to land a double rollover jackpot on Friday 17 December. The EuroMillions numbers were 03, 20, 29, 35 and 42, and the Lucky Star numbers were 03 and 08. The double rollover jackpot was worth €43,677,118 (around £37,234,742) and although we don't yet know if the winning ticket was owned by an individual player or a lottery syndicate, we can assume that the festive celebrations will start as soon as they become aware of their win.
The jackpot winner isn't the only EuroMillions player with cause to celebrate. One player in the United Kingdom became £1,000,000 richer after matching the Millionaire Raffle number CFW607118. Seven EuroMillions players matched the five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Star numbers to win a second-tier consolation prize of €494,521 (around £394,534) each. 13 players matched five main numbers only to win €75,566 (around £53,411) each, and 119 players matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win €5,897 (around £4,167) each. Over 1.92 million smaller prizes were won by players matching fewer numbers.
Now that the double rollover jackpot has been won, the jackpot for the next EuroMillions lottery draw on Friday 24 December will be worth €15 million (around £13 million). The Christmas Eve draw will also give UK players 25 chances to win £1,000,000 thanks to the special Millionaire Raffle draw that we have discussed previously.
The most overdue EuroMillions main numbers at the time of writing are 14, 34, 44, 18 and 37, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 02 and 01. Those numbers won't help any UK player who wants to land a Millionaire Raffle prize (Millionaire Raffle numbers are generated automatically for the player at the time of purchase) but they just might help someone to win the main Christmas Eve EuroMillions jackpot of €15 million.
