EuroMillions Jackpot Surpasses the £50 Million Mark
24th April 2014 2:22 PM
The EuroMillions jackpot has surpassed the £50 million mark to reach £55 million (€68 million) for Friday’s draw after Tuesday’s results revealed no top tier winners. Even though no players managed to scoop the jackpot in the midweek draw there were still 1,752,538 players who struck it lucky in the 12 remaining tiers to win prizes worth between £2.80 (€3.90) and £376,122 (€530,391).
The biggest winners in Tuesday’s draw included one ticket holder from the UK and another from France who both matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to share the second tier prize pool of £752,244 (€1,060,782). Following these, three ticket holders matched all five main numbers to take home €117,864 each while 32 ticket holders each secured a prize of £3,917 (€5,524) by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
All other winning ticket holders in Tuesday’s draw managed to win a prize worth between £2.80 (€3.90) and £162.20 (€228.80) for matching between just two main numbers and four main numbers and one Lucky Star. The full prize breakdown from Tuesday’s draw, including the winning UK Millionaire Raffle code, can be found on the EuroMillions Results page.
A total of ten EuroMillions ticket holders have claimed a jackpot prize this year, with Spanish ticket holders clinching five of the top tier wins. In second place is the UK with two jackpot winners followed by Ireland, Switzerland and France who have each produced one jackpot winner so far this year. Austria, Belgium, Portugal and Luxembourg have so far failed to produce a 2014 top prize winner and with tomorrow night’s draw offering a £55 million (€68 million) jackpot, it will be interesting to see if Spain will extend its lead or if one of the other counties will produce their first jackpot winner of the year.
Ticket sales for tomorrow night’s draw close at 19.30 BST and the winning numbers will be available from 20.30 BST on the EuroMillions Results page so don’t forget to check your tickets to see if you’ve struck it lucky in Friday’s draw.
