Guaranteed €100 Million Jackpot this Friday!
21st March 2013 10:13 AM
EuroMillions players are just hours away from being able to win a guaranteed jackpot worth €100 million this Friday 22 March! The odds of winning that jackpot with a single entry are exactly the same as normal, as is the cost of tickets themselves, so the only difference is the amount of cash that can be won. This fact makes getting involved in Friday’s game extremely attractive, so we expect a bottleneck to occur as casual players rush to buy a ticket on the actual day of the draw. Our advice, as always, is to buy your tickets as soon as possible just in case the last-minute rush leads to any unforeseen technical problems.
There was of course a EuroMillions game earlier this week, and the results for Tuesday 19 March were 19, 32, 35, 37 and 44, with the numbers 01 and 09 appearing as the Lucky Stars. The jackpot was worth €21.9 million (£18.7 million) but no player was able to match all of the numbers required to win the top prize. Technically speaking, that meant that the previous jackpot rolled over, but because the jackpot in the next game was already going to be worth €100 million guaranteed, the rollover had no discernible effect.
Although no ticket won Tuesday’s jackpot, more than 1.57 million consolation prizes were landed by players. The biggest were won by two tickets that matched all five of the main numbers as well as one of the Lucky Star numbers to win €522,854 (£363,234) each, and seven tickets won €49,796 each by matching the five main numbers only. 49 tickets matched four of the main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars to secure a fourth-tier prize of €3,557 (£2,471) each, and all other winners won lesser amounts by matching fewer numbers. For the benefit of readers in the UK, the Millionaire Raffle number on Tuesday was JHR283407.
We promised in our previous news item to keep you up to date with the overdue numbers, and we are pleased to say that two of the most overdue main numbers (32 and 35) were drawn, along with both of the most overdue Lucky Stars (01 and 09). Anyone who had blindly played all of the overdue numbers highlighted on Monday would have won an eighth-tier prize worth €16.80 (£11.70), so well done if you chose to do that.
Looking ahead to the €100 million jackpot game this Friday, the most overdue main numbers are 46, 43, 49, 07 and 41, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 04. Will any of those numbers help someone to win the top prize or will a totally different selection win big? We have no idea, but we are keen to find out, so visit this page to buy your tickets online and good luck!
