EuroMillions Jackpot Proves Elusive
14th February 2011 10:55 AM
The €15 million EuroMillions jackpot was stubbornly elusive on Friday 11 February, and no player was able to match all five main numbers (12, 14, 15, 19 and 23) as well as both Lucky Star numbers (07 and 08). This means that the jackpot has rolled over and will now be worth an estimated €28 million (around £24 million) on Friday 18 February. The Millionaire Raffle number, which makes one UK player £1 million richer each and every week, was MKP910712, though of course it is still too early to know who the new millionaire is.
13 players matched the five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Stars, and although they will have been disappointed to have missed out on the jackpot by just one number, they did win a consolation prize of €235,459 (around £168,569) each. 8 players matched the five main numbers but no Lucky Stars to win a third-tier prize of €108,581 (around £77,735) each, and 131 players picked up €4,736 (around £3,391) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers.
None of the numbers that we had previously highlighted as being most overdue to make an appearance were drawn last Friday, so the most overdue numbers remain as they were before. The most overdue main numbers are 37, 25, 26, 17 and 06, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 03 and 02. Further information about each of the numbers used in the EuroMillions game - including draw frequencies and other interesting facts - can be found on our EuroMillions Statistics page.
The number of EuroMillions prizes that are won in any given draw is directly related to the number of tickets purchased (each ticket has a 1 in 24 chance of winning a prize), and that tends to be directly related to the size of the jackpot. Last week there were more than 1.91 million prizes won, and now that the jackpot has rolled over it is highly likely that even more will be won this Friday 18 February.
