French EuroMillions Player Wins €83.3 Million Jackpot

French EuroMillions Player Wins €83.3 Million Jackpot

A lucky ticket holder from France matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars in the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday 11th April to win a magnificent €83.3 million (£70.8 million) and bring a run of seven rollovers to an end. It is the largest prize to have been given away on the game since an Irish syndicate picked up €88.5 million (£76 million) on 24th January.

The numbers drawn last night were 5, 21, 22, 31 and 49 with Lucky Stars 2 and 8. As well as the jackpot winner, there was one player from Spain who matched five main numbers plus one Lucky Star to scoop €986,781, while another five participants from across the continent matched five main numbers to pocket £29,605 (€45,966).

The other prizes won ranged from £2.80 (€4.40) for matching two main numbers to £2,129 (€3,306) for matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. Take a look at the EuroMillions Results section for more information, including a full prize breakdown and details of all the associated draws such as the UK Millionaire Maker and French My Million.

France has now produced 85 jackpot winners in the history of EuroMillions, making it the most successful participating nation. Next on the list is Spain with 82, ahead of the UK on 65 and Portugal on 64. However, last night’s success marked the first time that the top prize had been won in France since two players from the country split a jackpot of €61.4 million (£52 million) on 25th November 2016.

The jackpot has been won a total of 365 times in 997 draws, and the 1,000th EuroMillions draw on Friday 21st April is now rapidly approaching. If you fancy bagging the top prize before the landmark draw arrives, there will be £14 million (€17 million) on offer in the next game on Friday night. You can choose your numbers online or visit an authorised retailer in any of the participating countries. Good luck!
