Massive Jackpot for Aspiring EuroMillionaires
5th January 2012 10:08 AM
There will be a massive jackpot for aspiring EuroMillionaires to play for this Friday 6 January because the EuroMillions top prize rolled over for the fifth time in a row on Tuesday. The main numbers draw in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 3 January were 03, 30, 42, 45 and 49, and the two Lucky Star numbers were 05 and 10. After no player matched those numbers the jackpot rolled, so the top prize this Friday will be worth an estimated €73 million (around £60 million)!
Tuesday’s EuroMillions game created 1.76 million prize winners and the biggest of those were – as always – found at the second-tier level where two tickets won €604,877 each by matching all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars. There was just one winning ticket at the third-tier level, so the owner of that ticket won a very impressive €403,251 for matching five main numbers only. To put that last figure into perspective, the third-tier prize in the previous draw (on Friday 30 December) was €113,858.
33 EuroMillions tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win €6,110 (£4,143) each, and another 742 tickets won €237 (£161.20) each after matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. In the UK, the biggest winner on Tuesday was the player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number JZD045205 and picked up a cool £1,000,000 as a result.
We haven’t mentioned the most overdue EuroMillions numbers for a while (though of course you can view them at any time on our EuroMillions Statistics page) so now seems as good a time as any to rectify that. The most overdue main numbers at the time of writing are 13, 08, 35, 32 and 46, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 04. Whether or not any of those numbers will help someone to win the €73 million jackpot this Friday is of course something that we won’t know until the draw has taken place.
Play EuroMillions online today and if Lady Luck takes a shine to your selections you could be celebrating EuroMillionaire status in time for the weekend! Good luck!
