EuroMillions Double Rollover as Jackpot Cap is Set
16th February 2012 10:27 AM
The EuroMillions lottery game this Friday 17 February will offer a double-rollover jackpot that is estimated to be worth around €34 million (around £28 million) after no ticket matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars in the midweek draw. This Friday also sees the introduction of the new EuroMillions jackpot cap, which will effectively mean that the jackpot won’t be able to exceed a value of €190 million. For those of you who would like to remind yourself of how this jackpot cap will work, please take another look at our earlier news piece on the EuroMillions Jackpot Rule Amendment.
The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 14 February were 14, 27, 36, 42 and 46, and the Lucky Star numbers were 08 and 11. Three tickets matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a second-tier prize worth €368,058 (£260,001) each and another eight tickets matched the five main numbers only to win €46,007 (£32,500) each.
There were 34 tickets that matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars, and each of those won €5,413 (£3,824). 668 tickets won €241 (£170) each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star, and there were 1,405 tickets that matched four main numbers only to win €115 (£80) each. The total number of EuroMillions prizes won on Tuesday exceeded 1.61 million, and in the UK one player won £1,000,000 after matching the Millionaire Raffle number XDP745634.
All eyes are now on the EuroMillions double-rollover jackpot game this Friday, and we can tell you that the most overdue main numbers are 35, 32, 11, 29 and 47, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 03 and 09. Followers of selections based on past statistics will of course be delighted if any of those numbers help someone to win the jackpot this Friday, but they have no advantage over any other numbers so if you would prefer to ignore them completely you wouldn’t be harming your chances.

However you arrive at the numbers you choose to enter this Friday, play EuroMillions online today, keep your fingers crossed and good luck!
