If you bought your ticket from a store in Limerick, or you know someone who might have, be sure to check and see if you can’t help solve the mystery of the missing EuroMillions winner. And if you’re sure that the €77,500 prize has nothing to do with you, let’s turn our attention to the next draw.
Nobody won the last EuroMillions lottery jackpot on Friday 24 July, 2009, so we will end July with a rollover jackpot worth €28 million (around £24 million). Our advice to anyone who wants to avoid losing their EuroMillions tickets or becoming another missing EuroMillions winner is to play EuroMillions online. That way you will be notified just as soon as you win, and the EuroMillions organisers will be able to get your prize money to you without any delay.
Although the jackpot eluded players last Friday, seven players did match five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €409,166 (around £354,545) each. A further twelve players matched the five main numbers only and won €67,733 (around £58,684). In total there were more than 1.7 million EuroMillions prizes paid out to successful players.
Whether the missing EuroMillions winner will be found before the next draw on Friday 31 July remains to be seen, but the rest of us can concentrate on trying end the month with a rollover jackpot win. Be sure to check the EuroMillions results as soon as you can so that you too don’t become a mystery winner if your numbers come up!
