El Gordo and EuroMillions Festive Double
20th December 2012 9:37 AM
Lottery players are looking forward to the biggest two days of the year as far as combined jackpots are concerned, and for good reason. On Friday 21 December the EuroMillions game will offer a multi-rollover jackpot that is estimated to be worth around €100 million (around £81 million) and on Saturday 22 December there will be a total prize pool of €2.52 billion up for grabs in the 2012 El Gordo de Navidad event. The top prize in the annual El Gordo de Navidad draw is €4 million, and there are 180 such prizes (plus many more consolation prizes), so if you participate in both games and you don’t become a multi-millionaire on Friday, you could well make it happen on Saturday!
Those of you who like the idea of taking part in this festive double can find out more about El Gordo de Navidad by visiting this page, but right now we need to bring you up to date with news of what happened in the EuroMillions game last Tuesday…
The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 18 December were 14, 18, 20, 35 and 44, and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 05. As you have probably guessed by now, no player was able to land the jackpot and so the biggest winners were found at the second-tier prize level, where four tickets matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €360,314 (£254,961) each.
Five tickets matched the five main numbers only to win €96,084 (£67,990) each, and another 52 tickets won €4,619 (£3,269) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. A total of 2,342,329 EuroMillions prizes were won on Tuesday, and those of you who play the game in the UK will be interested to hear that the winning Millionaire Raffle number – worth £1 million to the owner of the matching ticket – was CWS208075.
The chance of winning a €100 million jackpot in the next EuroMillions game this Friday is certainly worth getting excited about, and if you also take advantage of the opportunity to win a chunk of the €2.52 billion offered by El Gordo de Navidad on Saturday the excitement levels will climb even higher. Head this way to buy your lottery tickets online and good luck!
