French EuroMillions Player Wins €162 Million Jackpot

French EuroMillions Player Wins €162 Million Jackpot

A French player pocketed a EuroMillions jackpot worth €162 million on Friday 26th November, bringing an end to a run of 11 consecutive rollovers.

The winning numbers were 1, 20, 41, 42 and 50, with Lucky Stars 3 and 7. The enormous jackpot attracted more than 37 million entries into the draw, and more than 2.6 million prizes were won. Check out the EuroMillions Results page for all the draw details.

Only one ticket, sold in France, matched all the winning numbers, and the winner now has 60 days to come forward and claim their prize. No more information was disclosed about the winning ticket straight after the draw.

The last time the top prize was won was back on 15th October, when a single participant scooped €220 million to become the biggest winner in EuroMillions history. The glory also went to France on that occasion, with the money actually paid out to a woman from Tahiti in French Polynesia.

The latest win ranks as the fourth-biggest to ever go to France. Three of those four jackpots have been won in the last 12 months, after an online player also won €200 million in December 2020.

France has now also drawn level with the UK at the top of the list of the most successful countries. Both nations have produced 114 jackpot winners since the game was launched in 2004. Go to the Winner Statistics page to see the full table and find out more of the numbers behind the biggest jackpots.

Superdraw Set for Friday

The jackpot will reset to its minimum value of €17 million for Tuesday night’s draw, and then regardless of whether or not it gets won it will jump up to €130 million for a Superdraw on Friday 3rd December.

If the top prize had kept rolling over, the Superdraw would have been pushed back as it was already higher than the advertised amount for 3rd December.

However, as it was won it means that EuroMillions fans are in for a treat, with the next nine-figure jackpot just around the corner.

You can take part in EuroMillions online or by going to an authorised retailer in one of the participating countries.
