EuroMillions Scores a Double-Rollover Hat-Trick
21st January 2013 10:20 AM
Top-flight footballers aren’t the only ones who can score a hat-trick, and Europe’s favourite lottery game proved that last Friday by giving players their third double-rollover since the year began just three weeks ago. Although it would have been nice to report that someone won the €25 million (£21 million) that was on offer in the most recent draw, having yet another opportunity to win a double-rollover jackpot is definitely appealing, especially when you consider that the top prize this Tuesday 22 January is expected to be worth around €33 million (around £27 million)!
The EuroMillions lottery results for Friday 18 January were 04, 26, 27, 30 and 39, with the numbers 03 and 10 appearing as the Lucky Stars. There were four tickets that matched all five main numbers as well as one Lucky Star and the owners of those tickets are now €404,929 (£282,280) richer than they were before the game took place. Another five tickets won a third-tier prize of €107,981 (£75,275) each by matching five main numbers only.
At the fourth-tier prize level, 42 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win their owners €6,427 (£4,481) each, whilst 972 tickets matched four main numbers and just one Lucky Star to win €243 (£169) each. 2,575,382 other tickets won smaller prizes of up to €110 (£76) each by matching fewer numbers. For those of you who bought a EuroMillions ticket in the UK, don’t forget that the associated Millionaire Raffle game always makes one ticket-holder £1,000,000 richer, and on Friday that prize was won by the ticket bearing the number NBX768404.
Regular readers will know that we frequently highlight the most overdue and/or most often picked numbers as identified by our EuroMillions Statistics page, and on Friday both sets of numbers saw one or more of their group making an appearance in the draw itself. The main number 39 had been highlighted as one of the most overdue, whilst the main number 04 and the Lucky Star 03 had both been highlighted as most often picked. The most overdue main numbers as we approach the midweek draw this Tuesday are 46, 12, 13, 34 and 48, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 02.
Well done to everyone who won a EuroMillions prize last Friday, and good luck to those of you who have a go at winning the €33 million double-rollover jackpot this Tuesday. Head this way to buy your tickets and you could be just a few mouse-clicks away from winning big!
