The EuroMillions results last Friday 4 December were 18, 19, 25, 30 and 44, and the two Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 03. Whilst no player matched all of the numbers to win the jackpot itself, 15 players did match the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win €216,936 (around £196,742) each.
Another eight players matched the five main numbers only to win €115,430 (around £104,685) each, and 118 players matched four main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers to win €5,589 (around £5,068) each. Overall, more than 1.77 million EuroMillions prizes were won last Friday, so although the jackpot once again rolled over, it still left behind a huge number of winners.
Lottery experts around the world are expecting demand for EuroMillions tickets this week to be unusually high, even for a double rollover, and that is simply because of the time of year. Many lottery players tend to feel a little more optimistic than usual as the festive season takes hold, and that optimism, combined with a jackpot worth €43 million, will undoubtedly result in a huge number of tickets being purchased.
The expectation of more tickets being sold is good news for all EuroMillions players, because as well as having the chance to win the €43 million jackpot itself, it is likely to make the non-jackpot prizes that much bigger than they would be otherwise. We know from experience that winning even a second-tier prize (by matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star) can make people millionaires, so there really is everything to play for this Friday.
Play EuroMillions online and this Friday’s draw could bring you the kind of financial freedom that all lottery players dream of. If you win the jackpot itself, be sure to let us know so that we can give you a name-check next week!
