Seven lucky players matched the five main EuroMillions numbers and one of the two Lucky Star numbers to land a hefty consolation prize of €464,144 (around £333,245) each. Another seven players matched the five main numbers only (but none of the Lucky Stars) to win a third tier prize of €131,716 (around £94,570) each. 103 EuroMillions players matched four main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers to win €6,394 (around £4,591) each. And as if all of that wasn’t enough, one UK player won £1,000,000 by matching the Millionaire Raffle number, which was RZY355667.
In total, more than 1.76 million EuroMillions prizes were won last Friday, so even though the jackpot itself wasn’t landed there were still plenty of people with something to celebrate after the draw had taken place. Now that there is a rollover jackpot of €28 million to play for this Friday 22 October it is almost certain that even more people will buy tickets to give themselves a chance of winning, and with each ticket having a 1 in 38 chance of winning any prize at all that should result in even more EuroMillions prizes being won this week!
Regular readers who are still wondering who won the Mega Jackpot rollover on Friday 8 October can join the club, because everyone else is wondering the same thing! The owner of the winning ticket – which is worth £113 million – still hasn’t come forward to claim their prize. What we can tell you is that the winning ticket is rumoured to have been purchased in the Coventry area, so if you are a UK reader who has ever purchased a EuroMillions ticket in that part of the country, it might be worth double-checking your pockets for misplaced tickets!
For everyone else, play EuroMillions online today and this time next week you just might be £25 million richer. If that isn’t a big enough incentive to participate in Europe’s favourite lottery game then we don’t know what would be!
