French EuroMillions Player Wins €28.2 Million Jackpot

The EuroMillions jackpot was won for the third time in four draws on Friday 1st September as one French player matched all the winning numbers to scoop €28.2 million (£25.9 million). France has been the most successful country since EuroMillions was launched in 2004 and Friday’s result took its tally of jackpot winners to 87.

The winning numbers were 3, 7, 8, 14 and 49, with Lucky Stars 5 and 8. As well as the jackpot winner, there were three participants - one each from the UK, Spain and Portugal - who matched five main numbers plus one Lucky Star to receive £207,054 (€344,019) each. Another five ticket holders, including four from the UK, matched five main numbers to win £28,935 (€48,075) each.

The rest of the prizes won ranged from £2.40 (€4.00) for matching two main numbers to £1,608 (€2,672) for matching four main numbers plus two Lucky Stars. Take a look at the EuroMillions Results page for a full prize breakdown, plus details of all the supplementary games from the different countries.

France has now had five more jackpot winners than any other EuroMillions country. Spain remains in second place with 82, ahead of the UK (68) and Portugal (66). Visit the EuroMillions Winners page to find out how many winners have come from all nine EuroMillions nations.

There has been a fantastic run of winners over the last few weeks, after another French player landed €44.1 million (£40.5 million) on Tuesday 22nd August and a UK ticket holder won £15.7 million (€17 million) in the next draw. This month is guaranteed to provide more excitement, with a €130 million (estimated £110 million) Superdraw on Friday 15th September, while there are still several more draws before then.
