The numbers drawn on Friday 28th September were 2, 4, 8, 27 and 50, with Lucky Stars 2 and 9. While the top prize proved to be elusive, five ticket holders matched five main numbers plus one Lucky Star to net £225,954 (€368,793) each. Two of these winners came from France, with one each from the UK, Portugal and Belgium.
Another six participants scooped £43,856 (€71,580) in the ‘Match 5’ tier, while the other prizes ranged from £2.60 (€4.30) to £1,739 (€2,838).

Tuesday’s Jackpot The Biggest Since February
The top prize for the next draw on Tuesday now stands at its largest amount since Friday 23rd February, when two players split a gigantic jackpot of £155.5 million (€177.7 million). It is also now on the verge of breaking into the top ten of the largest prizes ever seen on EuroMillions.
It has only taken a Superdraw and a couple more rollovers to produce this extraordinary jackpot, after the top prize was bumped up to a guaranteed €130 million (£116 million) on Friday 21st September. Multiple players have come within one number of landing the jackpot in each of the last few draws, so it could be that the top prize finally comes toppling down this time.
Strategies To Consider
There are various ways to go about trying to win Tuesday’s big jackpot. A quick look at the Statistics will tell you that 50, 44, 23, 4 and 38 have been drawn more than any other numbers since the game was launched in 2004, while 8 and 3 have been the most frequent Lucky Stars.
The numbers 35, 13, 19, 12 and 48 are the most overdue, along with Lucky Stars 5 and 10, although you should remember that previous results have no influence on what will happen in the next draw and the odds remain the same for every number.
If you are considering a change from your usual set of numbers, you could check out the EuroMillions Number Generator to produce a new random line in an instant. The advantage of choosing random numbers over familiar patterns is that you are less likely to have to share your prize if you win - as illustrated by a recent New Zealand Lotto draw when 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 and 13 were the winning numbers and the jackpot was split between 40 tickets.
You could also think about teaming up with other players in a syndicate to try and improve your chances, allowing you to own a share of multiple tickets for the same cost of just buying one. You might want to set up a group with work colleagues or friends, or just join an online syndicate. It is entirely up to you how you decide to play, but opportunities to pocket up to £143 million don’t come around every week and you have to be in it to win it. Good luck!
