The winners can take up to seven guests with them on their private yacht getaway and choose whether they wish to sail around the islands of Turkey or Croatia on a week-long break, which doesn’t sound like a bad way to start life as a millionaire. It was also a bountiful draw for players in France, with ten ticket holders each earning €1 million as part of the My Million game.
The winning EuroMillions numbers from Friday evening were 5, 19, 29, 31 and 40 with Lucky Stars 3 and 10, giving one UK participant an incredible payout. Across the continent, there were also four players who matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star to pick up £337,742 (€437,844) each. Another 15 ticket holders each pocketed £30,021 (€38,919) for matching the five main numbers.
Over 2.8 million other players won cash prizes in the draw, ranging from £3 (€3.90) for matching two main numbers to £3,311 (€4,292) for matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The EuroMillions Results page provides a breakdown in full, as well as a list of the ten winning Millionaire Maker codes.
The UK enjoyed the best night of the countries taking part by far, as 771,803 players won cash prizes totalling £50.8 million. France came in second as a total of €5.1 million was split between 689,515 ticket holders, and Spain trailed in third.
The jackpot will now stand at £10 million (€15 million) for Tuesday’s draw, when players will have another chance to strike it lucky. It will be the final EuroMillions draw of April and it could be your turn to snag an eight-figure windfall, so make sure to pick up a ticket. You can enter online or by going to any authorised retailer in one of the participating countries. Have fun and best of luck!
