Fifty Million for Midweek Lottery Players
13th May 2013 9:16 AM
There will be a EuroMillions jackpot of around €50 million (around £42 million) for lottery players to pursue in the midweek draw this Tuesday 14 May after no ticket proved able to match all seven numbers on Friday. All of the EuroMillions games staged in May thus far have resulted in jackpot rollovers, and although millions have been won in the form of consolation prizes, it would certainly be nice to see someone land the top prize this week. That said, the element of surprise is what makes lottery games exciting, so we’ll just have to wait and see whether the mass desire for a new jackpot winner translates to a tangible reality.
The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Friday 10 May were 01, 32, 35, 45 and 48, and the Lucky Star numbers were 04 and 11. No ticket was able to match five main numbers as well as one of the Lucky Stars, so the vacant second-tier prize level served to increase the sums won at the third tier. There were six tickets that matched five main numbers only, and each of those won a very welcome €360,154 (£248,620) for their owners, so well done to all of the players involved.
The fourth-tier prize level awarded a prize of €7,300 (£5,040) to each of 37 tickets that were able to match four main numbers as well as both of the Lucky Star numbers. 783 tickets won €301 (£208) each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star, and the prize for matching four main numbers only (which was won by 1,712 tickets) was €138 (£95) each.
There were more than 2.13 million prizes won in the EuroMillions draw on Friday night, and there will no doubt be millions more landed in the next game as players have a go at winning the €50 million jackpot. The most overdue main numbers as we approach the midweek draw are 47, 18, 06, 09 and 31, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 08 and 01.
Will we see the first EuroMillions jackpot win of May arrive this Tuesday? We have no idea, but head this way if you want to give yourself a chance of becoming €50 million richer and good luck!
