New Lucky Star Makes First Appearance
23rd May 2011 10:40 AM
One of the two new Lucky Star numbers made its first appearance in the EuroMillions draw on Friday 20 May. The main numbers drawn were 10, 14, 20, 25 and 42, and the two Lucky Stars were 08 and 11. This would have been good news for anyone who had chosen to play the new Lucky Star numbers, but it was life-changing news for the owner of one ticket which matched all seven numbers to scoop the rollover jackpot of €27,642,654 (around £24,115,451).
The winner of the latest EuroMillions jackpot now enjoys the accolade of being the first ever jackpot-winner to land their prize with the Lucky Star number 11. That probably isn’t his or her main concern right now (we expect that claiming and spending the €27.6 million will be at the top of their to-do list) but it is certainly an interesting bit of trivia. How long it will be before the Lucky Star number 10 enables someone to become a EuroMillionaire remains to be seen.
Eight players matched five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Star numbers to win a consolation prize of €237,050 (around £163,386) each, and 13 players matched the five main numbers only to win €48,626 (around £33,515) each. 44 players won €7,183 (around £4,951) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. In total, more than 3 million EuroMillions prizes were won, and one player in the UK also landed a £1 million prize by matching the Millionaire Raffle number GTS683610.
If any of the big winners go public then we will of course bring you details of their success as soon as we can. In the meantime, the jackpot in the next EuroMillions draw this Tuesday 24 May will be worth €15 million (around £13 million), and for those of you who are interested in such things, the most overdue main numbers are now 30, 31, 05, 07 and 08.
