French Player Wins €166 Million EuroMillions Jackpot

The largest EuroMillions jackpot of the year was won on Tuesday night, as a ticket holder from France matched all the numbers to land €166 million (£142 million).

The winning numbers for 30th April were 13, 22, 24, 33 and 47, with Lucky Stars 1 and 5. More than 31 million entries were purchased for the draw, and more than 2.6 million prizes were paid out on a memorable night for many players.

Go to the EuroMillions Results page for Tuesday night to see full draw details, including the results of all the associated draws that took place in each participating country.

It was quickly announced after the EuroMillions draw that one ticket was a perfect match for the full winning line, and that it had been sold in France. No more information was immediately disclosed about a more specific location where the winner was based.

The winner now has 60 days to claim their prize. They must contact French National Lottery operator La Française des Jeux to start the process.

Biggest Win of 2024

The latest win ranks as the biggest of 2024, surpassing the €144 million that was given away on 30th January. On that occasion there were two winning tickets - one from Spain and the other from the UK.

Of the seven winners this year, three have come from France, two from Spain, one from the UK and one from Belgium.

France and the UK are now tied on 127 jackpot wins in total at the top of the list of the most successful countries, just ahead of Spain (120).

However, it is an Austrian who holds the record for winning the biggest jackpot in EuroMillions history. They won €240 million on 8th December 2023, a week after a special Megadraw had bumped the top prize up to €200 million.

The jackpot will now reset to €174 million, although it could quickly grow back into nine figures. Even if it is won again in the next few weeks, a €130 million jackpot is guaranteed to be put up for grabs in the next Superdraw in June.

You can play EuroMillions online or by visiting an authorised retailer in any of the nine participating countries.
