EuroMillions Jackpot Rolls an Eighth Time
20th June 2011 10:34 AM
Eight rollovers in a row have created yet another spectacular jackpot for the next EuroMillions draw this Tuesday 21 June, and this time players will be hoping to win themselves a top prize of around €101 million (around £89 million). The numbers that eluded jackpot-hunters in the last draw on Friday 17 June were 11, 16, 21, 22 and 44, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 03 and 08. One player in the UK did manage to win £1 million by matching the latest Millionaire Raffle number, which was QXK147291.
Despite the fact that the EuroMillions jackpot itself rolled over once more, there were plenty of celebrations among players who were lucky enough to land themselves a hefty consolation prize. 10 players won €233,583 (around £157,221) each for matching all five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Star numbers, whilst 13 other players won €59,893 (around £40,313) for matching just the five main numbers. More than 4.2 millions smaller prizes (ranging from €3,385 down to €4) were won by players matching fewer numbers.
Now that the EuroMillions jackpot has broken through the €100 million mark, plenty of people who don’t usually play the game on a regular basis will be tempted to have a go, and that is likely to mean lengthy queues at offline retail outlets. Fortunately, there is no need to queue at all when you play EuroMillions online, and your odds of winning any prize are exactly the same as they would be if you bought them offline.
Another advantage of purchasing tickets online is that you can’t lose them. We would hate to see our numbers win €101 million, only to discover that we had misplaced our ticket, and so we make buying tickets online a matter of habit. Those of you who value your own dreams of winning a life-changing jackpot would do well to start doing the same if you don’t already!
Will you be the lucky player who lands the €101 million jackpot this Tuesday? You can only win if you get yourself a ticket, so play EuroMillions online today, think positive and good luck!
