Four tickets matched all five of the main numbers drawn as well as one of the Lucky Star numbers to win €458,226 (£331,669) each, which is a very nice chunk of cash to acquire just before the holidays. 11 tickets matched the five main numbers only to win €55,543 (£40,202) each, whilst 78 tickets picked up €3,916 (£2,835) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
At the lower prize levels, 1,358 tickets matched four main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €196 (£142) each, and 2,443 tickets won €109 (£79) each by matching four main numbers only. Even tickets that only managed to match two main numbers picked up a prize of €4 (£3) each, so cause for celebration was plentiful on Friday. In the UK, one player managed to win themselves millionaire status by matching the Millionaire Raffle number YVM625645 for a prize of £1,000,000.

It has now been five draws since the EuroMillions jackpot was last won, and there are just four draws remaining before Christmas Day. The potential is there for a new jackpot winner to be created in each of those draws, but maybe fate has something else lined up.
