EuroMillions Approaches Record Heights
4th July 2011 10:47 AM
The biggest EuroMillions jackpot on record was set in February 2006 and weighed in at a colossal €183.5 million. Now, more than five years later, the EuroMillions jackpot is looking like it could pose a very real threat to that record and the Jackpot Cap. The jackpot for last Friday 1 July eluded players for the twelfth draw in a row, and that gives the jackpot for the next game this Tuesday 5 July an estimated value of €171 million, which is less than €13 million off the previous record.
The EuroMillions results on Friday 1 July were 08, 11, 23, 31 and 46, and 08 and 09 were selected as the Lucky Stars. 14 players came within one Lucky Star of winning the jackpot and won a second-tier prize of €241,234 (around £159,129) each as a consolation. 28 players won €40,206 (around £26,521) each by matching five main numbers only, and in total more than 5.67 million EuroMillions prizes were won, which is a staggering number.
Of course, all of that talk about future possibilities doesn’t change the fact that there is around €171 million (around £154 million) to be won this Tuesday 5 July. Our EuroMillions Statistics page reveals that the main numbers that are ‘most overdue’ to make an appearance are 07, 43, 34, 32 and 18, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 07 and 01. The number 07 appears twice in that last sentence, so maybe that mythically ‘lucky’ number could play a role in helping someone to win a major prize this week.
Whatever numbers you choose to enter for the EuroMillions game this Tuesday, buy your tickets online to ensure the safety of your entries and good luck!
