EuroMillions Ends October with Nine-Figure Jackpot
29th October 2012 9:33 AM
The EuroMillions game will give the month of October a very big finish by offering a rollover jackpot that is estimated to be worth around €101 million (around £81 million). This comes after the jackpot on Friday 26 October rolled over yet again, so it is now eight draws since anyone managed to match all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars. Will the ninth draw of the month result in a nine-figure jackpot pay-out for Halloween? Only time will tell, but one thing is certain – you need to play the game to have a chance of winning it!
The main numbers selected in the EuroMillions draw last Friday were 05, 06, 09, 27 and 38, and the Lucky Star numbers were 05 and 11. Although no player was lucky enough to win the jackpot, four tickets did succeed in matching all five of the main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €545,517 (£388,056) each.
11 tickets matched the five main numbers without either Lucky Star to win a third-tier prize of €66,123 (£47,037) each and 68 tickets won €5,348 (£3,804) each by matching five main numbers only. 1,774 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win €179 (£127) each, and over 3.88 million other tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers. The Millionaire Raffle number on Friday was KPC796022, and that helped one player in the UK to land a very nice prize of £1 million.
Now that the EuroMillions jackpot is set to surpass the nine-figure milestone this Friday, many players will be trying to increase their chances of winning by purchasing more tickets. If you intend to take that approach then you may want to consider playing one or more of the numbers highlighted on our EuroMillions Statistics page. The most overdue main numbers right now are 47, 14, 24, 46 and 45, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 01 and 04, so maybe one or more of those will help someone to land the €101 million that is up for grabs.
However you choose your numbers for the last EuroMillions game of October, visit this page to buy your tickets online, have a Happy Halloween and be sure to let us know if you win the jackpot!
