3rd February 2014 12:27 PM
Luck was in the air for one French ticket holder in Friday’s draw when they matched the top prize winning numbers to scoop the impressive €72 / £59 million jackpot. This lucky ticket holder, who has yet to come forward to claim their prize, becomes the second French EuroMillions ticket holder this year to win the jackpot and brings the total top prize winnings for France to €137.2 million so far this year.
Since EuroMillions started in 2004, France has had 71 jackpot winners, making it accountable for 25.9% of the total number of EuroMillions jackpot wins and putting it at the top of the EuroMillions jackpot winners list. Spain, which was also one of only three countries to initially play EuroMillions, comes in second with 58 jackpot winners.
In the remaining prize tiers for Friday’s draw, two UK ticket holders matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to each win €917,680 / £666,220. The other prizes won in Friday’s draw ranged from €3.90 / £2.80 for matching two main numbers up to €50,982 / £37,012 for matching five main numbers.
Another UK ticket holder struck it lucky in Friday’s Millionaire Raffle draw when they matched the code drawn, which was QVG418871, to win £1 million. Visit the EuroMillions Results page to view the winning numbers from Friday’s draw as well as the full prize breakdown.
