EuroMillions Jackpot Goes to Portugal
11th March 2013 9:24 AM
Frankie went to Hollywood, and on Friday the EuroMillions jackpot went to Portugal, sending the owner of one lucky ticket directly to the Pleasuredome. Or something. We don't know exactly who the winner is yet, but we do know that he or she matched all of the EuroMillions results on Friday 8 March to land a prize worth €51,689,985 (£45,058,160). This is the first Portuguese jackpot win since Tuesday 29 January, and the main numbers that made it happen on Friday were 03, 20, 23, 28 and 42, along with the Lucky Star numbers 08 and 11.
Three tickets matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to secure a second-tier prize of €580,343 (£406,735) each, and another five tickets won €116,069 (£81,347) each after matching the five main numbers only. That's a heck of a lot of cash landed across the top three tiers and there was plenty more won at the lower levels.
49 tickets won €5,922 (£4,150) each by matching four main numbers plus both Lucky Stars, and 1,108 tickets matched four main numbers plus one Lucky Star for a prize of €229 (£160) each. We could go on, but the full breakdown can be found on our EuroMillions Results page, so suffice it to say that the total number of prizes won was 2,955,307. As always, that figure doesn't include the Millionaire Raffle prize that was won by one lucky player in the UK - the winning number that was worth £1 million on Friday was FHC596580.
The next EuroMillions game this Tuesday will offer a new jackpot of €15 million (around £13 million) but if you want to try and win even more you could always have a go at the SuperEnalotto game too. The jackpot in Italy's favourite lottery has been rolling for several weeks and no player managed to halt that trend on Saturday, so Tuesday's jackpot will be worth a staggering €52 million.
Whether you focus on the EuroMillions game this Tuesday or you choose to get involved in the SuperEnalotto draw too, visit this page to buy your tickets online. When you have done that, you can take Frankie's advice and Relax. Good luck!
