EuroMillions Rolls into New Era
2nd May 2011 11:50 AM
The last EuroMillions draw before the new rules come into play next week will offer a rollover jackpot of around €28 million (around £26 million) after nobody managed to match the five main numbers and both Lucky Stars last Friday 29 April. The EuroMillions results last week were 15, 25, 38, 40 and 41, and the Lucky Stars were 01 and 02. Although no ticket landed the jackpot, more than 1.43 million prizes were won by tickets matching three or more numbers, and one player in the UK won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number ZRM068085.
Three tickets matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a second tier prize of €999,138 each, whilst three other tickets matched the five main numbers only to win a third-tier prize of €283,539 each. 79 tickets won €7,691 (around £4,805) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
Whilst EuroMillions players will of course be keen to win the rollover jackpot this Friday 6 May, the first Tuesday EuroMillions draw will offer a Mega Jackpot of €100 million (around £85 million) so there will be plenty to look forward to even if the next jackpot eludes you. That said, it makes perfect sense to focus our attention on the rollover jackpot, as it is the last one which requires us to pick two Lucky Star numbers from the range 1 to 9 (the range for Lucky Stars will be 1 to 11 from Tuesday).
One of the main numbers drawn last Friday (40) had been highlighted as most overdue to make an appearance, so the most overdue numbers have changed slightly. The most overdue main numbers are now 30, 31, 05, 16 and 07, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 09 and 05. Whether any of those numbers will be drawn in the last ever EuroMillions game under the current rules remains to be seen.
Click here to buy your EuroMillions tickets for the draw this Friday and if luck is on your side you just might win yourself a rollover jackpot of £26 million before the game shifts into the ‘New Era’ on Tuesday. Good luck with your selections and don’t forget that tickets for the first Tuesday game will be available from this Saturday 7 May.
