France Wins EuroMillions with a Single Ticket
15th November 2012 10:25 AM
France won the EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday night thanks to a single ticket matching all seven of the numbers drawn. The success of the French ticket brought an end to a series of rollovers that had been running since the last jackpot was won on Friday 28 September, and because the jackpot on Tuesday weighed in at a massive €169,837,010 (£136,124,363) we are pretty confident that the winner will now be looking forward to a very joyeux noël!
The EuroMillions results on Tuesday 13 November 2012 were 11, 16, 21, 24 and 29, and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 06. At the second-tier prize level there were 21 winning tickets, and each of those matched the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win €121,209 (£85,915) each. Another 25 tickets won a third-tier prize of €33,939 (£24,056) each by matching the five main numbers only.
174 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win €2,438 (£1,728) each, and another 2,493 tickets won €148 (£105) each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. The total number of EuroMillions prizes won on Tuesday was 4,557,314, and that doesn’t include the Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million that one UK player won by matching the number QSD960094.
Now that the multi-rollover jackpot has been won, there will be a brand new jackpot of €15 million (around £11 million for UK players) to play for in the next game this Friday 16 November. That isn’t anything like the €169 million that was landed on Tuesday, but it’s still a lot more than most people would earn over several lifetimes, and therefore well worth the time it takes to buy a ticket or two.
For those of you who follow our EuroMillions statistics, the most overdue main numbers right now are 46, 45, 12, 13 and 15, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 07 and 08. Will any of those numbers help you to win €15 million this Friday? Visit this page to buy your tickets online and you’ll soon find out! Good luck!
