EuroMillions Reaches €50 Million Milestone
7th March 2013 9:51 AM
Many lottery players enjoy keeping track of various jackpot milestones, and in the EuroMillions game there are two that are commonly anticipated with a higher-than-average level of excitement. Those milestones are €50 million and €100 million, and we are pleased to report that a fourth rollover in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 5 March has given the next jackpot an estimated value of €51 million. That’s right, it looks like the first big milestone has been reached, and players across Europe are very keen to try and land the bumper jackpot this Friday!
The EuroMillions results in the midweek game on Tuesday 5 March were 08, 19, 31, 33 and 39, along with the Lucky Star numbers 02 and 07. There were seven lucky tickets that matched one of those Stars as well as all five main numbers to win €157,602 (£105,304) each, so well done to the players involved and we hope that you enjoy every cent of your windfall in the weeks and months ahead.
Four tickets matched five main numbers only to win a third-tier consolation prize worth €91,934 each, and the fourth-tier paid €3,405 (£2,275) to each of 54 tickets that matched four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars. 786 tickets matched four main numbers plus one Lucky Star number to win €204 (£136) each, and the total number of EuroMillions prizes won on Tuesday was 1,837,773. Those of you who play the game in the UK will be interested to hear that the winning Millionaire Raffle number was DGT680594, so if you have the same number on your ticket you are now £1,000,000 richer than you were previously.
Regular readers who follow our EuroMillions Statistics might have noticed that two of the most overdue main numbers (highlighted in Monday’s news item) appeared on Tuesday, and those were the numbers 19 and 33. The most overdue main numbers for the next draw are 46, 50, 43, 35 and 32, whilst the most overdue Lucky Stars are still 03 and 01.
Will any of those numbers be drawn in the next game this Friday, and if so, will they help anyone to take down the €51 million jackpot? We won’t find out until the game takes place, so visit this page to get involved and good luck!
