EuroMillions Jackpot Surpasses £50 Million Mark
10th September 2014 11:50 AM
The EuroMillions jackpot has now surpassed the £50 million mark following last night’s draw where no player was able to land the top-tier prize. The jackpot value for Friday’s draw is now worth an impressive £52 million (€65 million) which is the largest amount this pan-European lottery has seen in just over eight weeks.
Although no players emerged from last night’s draw as a jackpot winner, there were more than 1.9 million ticket holders who secured a cash prize. Six ticket holders, one of whom was from the UK, matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £132,973 (€187,027) each while 14 players struck it lucky in the third prize tier and matched all five main numbers to win £18,996 (€26,718).
Following these, 41 players matched four main numbers plus both Lucky Stars to win £3,243 (€4,561) and 835 ticket holders matched four main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £139.30 (€195.90). All other winners in the main draw took home prizes worth between £2.60 (€3.60) for matching just two main numbers and £62.20 (€87.60) for matching four main numbers.
One UK ticket holder became £1 million richer after successfully matching the winning UK Millionaire Raffle code RSH988249 while a French ticket holder matched the My Million code EK3248384 to win €1 million. The winning numbers from last night’s draw, along with the full prize breakdown, can be found on the EuroMillions Results page.
Attention now turns to Friday’s draw, and as ticket sales are likely to be high due to the multiple rollover jackpot at stake, we advise all players to buy their tickets well in advance to avoid the last-minute rush. EuroMillions tickets can be purchased online via the Play EuroMillions page or in person from an authorised retailer.
