The winning EuroMillions numbers were 18, 24, 35, 44 and 45 with Lucky Stars 5 and 11. Two players, both from Spain, matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star to snap up a gargantuan €723,961 each, while another six ticket holders grabbed £62,795 (€80,440) for matching five main numbers. The remaining players who won EuroMillions prizes scooped amounts worth between £3.40 (€4.30) for matching two main numbers and £5,091 (€6,522) for matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. A single UK player matched the winning Millionaire Maker code of DWV870769 to win £1 million in the supplementary game.

While the UK had the largest number of prize winners, the absence of a British player from the highest winning tier knocked them to second place in the leaderboard for last night’s draw. There were 593,121 UK prize winners in the main game who shared in a prize pot worth £3.42 million (€4.38 million). While Spain had fewer winners overall (431,896) two of their players landed in the highest-winning tier and picked up enormous sums, which meant that they edged past the UK with a prize pool of €4.8 million.
It’s going to be an exciting fortnight for EuroMillions players, and that’s not just because the top prize has been rolling over and increasing in value. Mega Friday is now just a week away and players across the UK will be dreaming of winning £1 million and a luxurious weekend in London. The Superdraw comes just a week after that on Friday 5th June, offering a jackpot of €100 million (estimated sterling value of £70 million).
Whether you want to get your hands on the current jackpot or a Mega Friday prize or you just want to snap up that Superdraw windfall, you’ll need to buy EuroMillions tickets online or from authorised retailers to be in with a chance of winning. Good luck and have fun!
