EuroMillions Frustrates Jackpot Seekers
11th February 2013 8:12 AM
Jackpot seekers who were hoping to win the €32.9 million (£27.8 million) top prize in the EuroMillions game last Friday were left frustrated after none of the tickets purchased for the draw were able to match all seven of the numbers required. The EuroMillions results on Friday 8 February comprised the main numbers 09, 11, 14, 34 and 44, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 10 and 11. Although the sense of frustration was understandable, we are glad to report that it was quickly transformed into one of renewed hope as players realised the fresh opportunity heading their way – the chance to win a triple-rollover jackpot of around €40 million (around £34 million) this Tuesday!
Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot might have been elusive, but the consolation prizes were as abundant as ever. Three tickets matched all five of the main numbers as well as one of the Lucky Stars, and the prize won by each of those tickets was a hefty €548,441. A prize of €49,858 (£33,629) went to 11 tickets that successfully matched five main numbers without either Lucky Star, and 31 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win €8,846 (£5,967) each.
From there, the consolation prizes naturally reduced in size, reflecting the achievement of the winning tickets involved. At the higher end of the scale, 958 tickets won €250 (£168) each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star, and at the lower end there were over 1.8 million tickets that won €3.30 (£2.20) each by matching two main numbers only. The total number of prizes won across all consolation levels was 2,773,615, and in the UK one player matched the Millionaire Raffle number VDN561660 to win £1,000,000.
EuroMillions wasn’t the only pan-European lottery game to reward players with a jackpot rollover on Friday night. In the EuroJackpot game no player proved able to match the five main numbers (12, 14, 17, 27 and 43) as well as both Euro numbers (01 and 07) and so the €11 million top prize rolled to the next draw this Friday 15 February. The jackpot for that game is expected to be worth €13 million.
We sympathise with those of you who were hoping to win a jackpot on Friday, but maybe your big money success is waiting for you in the next EuroMillions game this Tuesday. Visit this page to buy your tickets online and the triple-rollover jackpot of €40 million could soon be yours! Good luck!
