EuroJackpot Landed as EuroMillions Rolls Again
6th May 2013 12:25 PM
The EuroMillions jackpot rolled over for the second time in a row on Friday 3 May, but it wasn’t all bad news for pan-European lottery players by any means because the top prize in the EuroJackpot game was successfully landed by a single ticket. The winning entry had been played in Norway, and the jackpot that it won (by matching the main numbers 14, 16, 28, 44 and 48, along with the Euro numbers 03 and 07) was worth €13,486,561 (£11,370,520).
Five EuroJackpot players matched all five main numbers and one Euro number for a second-tier prize of €85,659 (£72,219) each, and two tickets won exactly the same amount by matching five main numbers only. The total number of prizes won was 431,310, and the next game this Friday 10 May will offer a brand new jackpot worth €10,000,000.
Getting back to Europe’s biggest and best-loved lottery game, the EuroMillions results on Friday 3 May were 03, 05, 34, 40 and 49, and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 03. We have already established that the jackpot rolled over, so the biggest winners were found at the second-tier level, where three tickets matched five main numbers plus one of the Lucky Stars to win €516,027 (£365,684) each. Another eight tickets matched five main numbers only to win a third-tier prize of €64,503 (£45,711) each.
33 EuroMillions tickets won €7,819 (£5,541) each by matching four main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars, 884 tickets won €255 (£180) each by matching four main numbers plus one Lucky Star, and 1,532 tickets matched four main numbers only to win €147 (£104) each. The total number of prizes won was 2,325,716, so although the top prize slipped away again on Friday there were still plenty of reasons to celebrate.
The next EuroMillions game this Tuesday 7 May will now give players the chance to win a double-rollover jackpot that is expected to be worth around €32 million (around £27 million). Demand for tickets is likely to continue swelling in line with the jackpot, so we advise you to buy your tickets early in order to avoid the last-minute rush.
