Although the jackpot itself escaped the clutches of players everywhere, six EuroMillions players did come close to landing the big one, missing out by just one Lucky Star number. Those players won a consolation prize of €153,266 (around £105,602) each, and four more players won €76,633 each by matching the five main numbers only.
The prize for matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars last Tuesday was €5,895 (around £4,062) and 26 players each managed to win that sum. 793 players won €169 (around £116) each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. The total number of EuroMillions prizes won in the last draw was 1,562,241, and in the UK one player won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number HVC122724.
When the Tuesday EuroMillions game was launched a little over two weeks ago, players were advised that the addition of two more Lucky Star numbers to the mix would probably result in more rollovers, and that prediction has certainly proved to be accurate. None of the three Tuesday EuroMillions draws held thus far have resulted in anyone winning a jackpot, and that has made the last three Friday games more exciting than ever.
Will the €26 million EuroMillions jackpot roll again this Friday? Or will someone match the five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers required to become a EuroMillionaire? Play EuroMillions online today and you’ll soon find out! Good luck!
