EuroMillions Double Rollover Jackpot this Tuesday
20th August 2012 10:17 AM
Lottery players will have a EuroMillions double rollover jackpot worth an estimated €34 million (around £27 million) to pursue this Tuesday after no player succeeded in winning the jackpot on Friday 17 August. It is always impressive to see how quickly the EuroMillions jackpot grows after just a couple of rollovers, and the sense of excitement among players tends to increase at roughly the same rate, so it will be interesting to see if the top prize is won this Tuesday or whether it will roll over for a third time to create an even bigger jackpot on Friday.
The EuroMillions results on Friday 17 August were 19, 25, 28, 33 and 44, and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 08. Nine tickets were just one Lucky Star number away from winning the jackpot, so each of those won a second-tier prize of €198,692 (£143,968) instead. Six tickets matched five main numbers without either Lucky Star to win €99,346 (£71,984) each.
95 players won a fourth-tier prize of €3,137 (£2,273) each after matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars, whilst 1,240 tickets matched four main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €210 (£152) each. There were more than three million prize winners in total, so congratulations if you were one of them!
Now that we have a double rollover jackpot to play for it makes sense to take a quick look at the numbers that are currently most overdue to make an appearance. The main numbers to watch out for are 06, 09, 41, 12 and 13, and the Lucky Stars that are most overdue right now are 07 and 06.
For those of you who prefer to include one or more of the most often picked numbers, the main numbers you need to consider are 50, 12, 04, 19 and 14, and the most often picked Lucky Star numbers are 03 and 08.
However you choose your numbers, your chances of winning a prize with a single entry are exactly the same (around 1 in 13), so play EuroMillions online today and good luck with the €34 million jackpot on Tuesday!
