EuroMillions Jackpot Rolls Over to £121 Million

EuroMillions Jackpot Rolls Over to £121 Million

The first EuroMillions Superdraw of the year took place on Friday 20th April, offering a huge nine-figure jackpot of £113 million. However, as no players matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars, the jackpot will roll over to £121 million for the next draw on Tuesday 24th April.

No Winner’s From Friday’s Superdraw

The winning numbers from Friday’s EuroMillions Superdraw were 3, 16, 25, 39 and 44, with Lucky Stars 7 and 11. Although three lucky players - including one from the UK - managed to match five numbers and one Lucky Star, winning £423,989 each, no one won the jackpot prize.

There was always a good chance that Friday’s jackpot would roll over, as Superdraw jackpots have been won on the night only seven out of 20 times. Previously, the rollovers have led to record jackpot amounts, and we could see exactly the same thing happen this time. The top prize from the last Superdraw, which took place on Friday 15th September 2017, rolled over until it reached its €190 million jackpot cap three weeks later, when it was won by one lucky player from Spain.

As it stands, the current jackpot of £121 million is already one of the biggest ever offered since the lottery launched in 2004, and while it will take a few more rollovers for it to reach its jackpot cap, previous Superdraws have shown that it is a distinct possibility.

Millionaires Made Despite Jackpot Rollover

The jackpot prize wasn’t the only million-pound prize on offer for UK players in Friday’s EuroMillions. Two codes were drawn in the UK Millionaire Maker raffle, offering a prize of £1 million to the players who matched the same codes on their EuroMillions tickets. The winning Millionaire Maker codes were ZFCS80189 and ZGDG04378.

The UK Millionaire Maker is a free supplementary game that offers a chance to win £1 million to all players who enter the main EuroMillions draw. See our UK Millionaire Maker page to find out more.

One player from the UK also managed to match five numbers in EuroMillions HotPicks, a supplementary game that gives players the opportunity to pick how many numbers they want to try and match. For picking and matching five numbers, Friday’s winner won £1 million.

See our EuroMillions HotPicks page for more information about how to play, including the odds of winning each prize, the latest results, and how you can play.

Be in With a Chance of Winning £121 Million

EuroMillions is simple to play, and you can enter online or by filling in a EuroMillions playslip at an authorised retailer in any of the participating countries. Online syndicates give you a better chance of winning, as you have a share in multiple lines of lottery numbers. Any prizes won are shared with other members of the syndicate.

On 24th January 2017, a syndicate from Ireland landed a huge €88.5 million jackpot, proving that it pays to pool your resources. With the size of Tuesday’s EuroMillions jackpot, you could take part in a 100-strong syndicate and still become a millionaire.
