Fresh Start for EuroMillions in August
1st August 2011 10:23 AM
The EuroMillions jackpot has been reset to the base value of €15 million (around £13 million) after a single ticket landed the rollover jackpot in the game on Friday 29 July. The jackpot on Friday was worth €27,315,669 (around £23,933,989) and the EuroMillions results which gave the lucky player this extremely impressive sum were 12, 19, 27, 37 and 38, along with the Lucky Star numbers 05 and 10. In the UK, one player also won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number FGW580868.
As usual, the top prize winners weren’t the only players celebrating after the EuroMillions draw last Friday because more than 3.13 million EuroMillions prizes were won in addition to the jackpot. 3 players matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to each win a second tier prize of €615,783 (around £417,451) and 11 other players won €55,980 (around £37,950) each by matching the five main numbers only. The prize for four main numbers and both Lucky Stars was €4,887 (around £3,313), and there were 63 winners at that level.
Those of you who play the EuroMillions game in the UK and occasionally buy tickets offline should note that a Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million recently expired unclaimed. This highlights the importance of checking all lottery entries as soon as possible after every draw and making any claim necessary immediately thereafter. Of course, if you play EuroMillions online then you will be notified of any win by email, but it still makes sense to establish the habit of keeping yourself up to date by visiting our EuroMillions Results page on a regular basis.
All of this gives EuroMillions a fresh start for a brand new month. The most overdue main numbers after the last draw are 07, 43, 32, 18 and 02, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 08 and 01. Play EuroMillions online today and maybe the brand new month will make you a brand new EuroMillionaire!
