Euro Lottery Déjà vu
17th June 2013 8:25 AM
Lottery players who participated in both the EuroMillions and EuroJackpot games last Friday will have experienced a strange case of déjà vu thanks to three of the same main numbers being drawn in each event. Anyone who had played those three numbers would have won a consolation prize in both games. Unfortunately, the numerical coincidence didn’t help anyone to win the jackpot in either draw, so players will be hoping to do better next time. The EuroMillions jackpot this Tuesday 18 June will be worth around €143 million (£122 million) and the EuroJackpot will offer a top prize of around €22 million on Friday.
The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Friday 14 June were 10, 25, 41, 47 and 48, whilst the numbers that appeared as the Lucky Stars were 06 and 10. A substantial second tier prize of €462,356 went to each of six tickets that matched the five main numbers plus one Lucky Star number, and eight tickets matched the five main numbers only to win a third tier prize of €115,589 (£78,645) each.
The fourth tier delivered a consolation prize of €5,254 (£3,575) to each of 88 tickets that matched four main numbers plus both of the Lucky Stars, and more than 3.89 million tickets won smaller prizes at the lower levels. In the UK, the Millionaire Raffle number NTD172674 was worth £1,000,000 to the player who was lucky enough to match it.
In the EuroJackpot game, the main numbers drawn on Friday were 01, 25, 46, 47 and 48, and the Euro numbers were 03 and 08. Two tickets matched all five main numbers as well as one Euro number to win a second tier prize of €202,432 (£172,371) each, and one other ticket matched five main numbers to win a third tier prize worth €105,265 (£89,633). There were 16 tickets that matched four main numbers plus both Euro numbers for a prize of €6,073 (£5,171) each, and the total number of prizes won was 346,989.
Anyone who had entered the numbers 25, 47 and 48 for both draws on Friday would have won €15 (£10.20) in the EuroMillions game and €17.80 (£15) in the EuroJackpot game, and that’s assuming that no other numbers were matched. Well done to players who achieved this ‘double success’ and we hope you fare even better in the draws coming up this week.
Once again, a bigger EuroMillions jackpot this Tuesday is certain to attract a particularly high number of participants, so if you fancy your chances of landing the €143 million that is waiting to be won, click here to buy your tickets online and good luck!
