Those six players matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €294,499 (£196,606) each, and although that isn’t anything like becoming a multi-millionaire it is still an achievement well worth celebrating. The same applies as far as the other big consolation prize winners are concerned, including the ten players who won €58,900 (£39,321) each by matching five main numbers only. The remaining prize winners won anything from €5 (£3.30) to €3,927 (£2,621) each by matching the numbers required at the fourth-tier level or lower.
It is always encouraging to know that the odds of winning any prize in a EuroMillions draw are 1 in 13, but when the jackpot rolls over repeatedly the consolation prizes are even more important. Although the EuroMillions jackpot has now rolled over for the last eleven draws in a row, it is good to note that millions have been paid out in non-jackpot prizes in each and every one of those draws.
Of course, winning the jackpot is the best outcome of all for a EuroMillions player, so those who won a consolation prize in any of the previous draws are just as likely to buy tickets for the €146 million jackpot game this Friday as anyone else. Play EuroMillions online today and as well as giving yourself a 1 in 13 chance of winning any prize at all you will also be giving yourself a shot at the €146 million jackpot itself. Good luck!
