EuroMillions Christmas Countdown Begins
1st December 2011 9:42 AM
December is here at last, and that means our traditional EuroMillions Christmas countdown can now begin. Whilst children everywhere will be content to count down to Christmas with an advent calendar, lottery-playing adults can have much more fun participating in the seven EuroMillions draws that take place between now and Christmas day. The first of those draws will be held this Friday 2 December and the jackpot for that draw will be worth around €26 million (around £22 million) thanks to a rollover on Tuesday 29 November.
The main EuroMillions numbers that were drawn last Tuesday were 11, 25, 41, 45 and 50, and the Lucky Stars were 02 and 07. There was just one winning ticket at the second-tier prize level and that won €1,000,862 (£720,278) by matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star, demonstrating that you don’t necessarily need to win a EuroMillions jackpot to become a EuroMillionaire!
There were four winning tickets at the third-tier level and each of those won €83,405 (£60,023) by matching the five main numbers only. 36 tickets matched four main numbers plus both Lucky Stars to win €4,634 (£3,335) each and the total number of prizes won was 1,588,002 – a figure that is very likely to be surpassed this Friday with a jackpot of around €26 million up for grabs. The Millionaire Raffle number which made one UK player £1 million richer last Tuesday was WVW309553.
Playing one or more overdue numbers is always popular when there is a rollover jackpot to be won in the EuroMillions game, so for those of you who are interested in taking that approach we can tell you that the most overdue main numbers are currently 03, 07, 13, 10 and 21. The most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 10, and, as always, further information can be found on our EuroMillions Statistics page.
Buy your EuroMillions tickets online today for the €26 million game this Friday and if luck is on your side Santa just might drop an early jackpot-sized gift down your chimney. Good luck!
