The biggest consolation prize was worth €224,393 (£159,590) to each of five players who matched all five of the main numbers as well as one of the Lucky Star numbers, so Christmas shopping should be particularly enjoyable for those fortunate winners. Nine tickets matched the five main numbers without either of the Lucky Star numbers to win a third-tier prize of €41,554 (£29,554) each, and the fourth-tier saw 53 tickets win a prize of €3,528 (£2,509) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. One ticket purchased in the UK won £1,000,000 by matching the Millionaire Raffle number VTR982942.
We mentioned Christmas a few moments ago, and so it might be a good idea to point out that, because you can enter numbers for up to eight draws in advance, you can now enter your numbers into every EuroMillions draw between now and Christmas day, inclusive. For those of you who usually find that December is one of the busiest months of the year, this ‘advance play’ approach could prove very useful – and will help to ensure that you don’t miss out on a chance to win by forgetting to buy your tickets for each draw individually.
For those of you who like to include one or more of the ‘most overdue’ EuroMillions numbers among your selections, the most overdue main numbers at the time of writing are 46, 12, 13, 39 and 34, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 08 and 11. Whether any of those numbers will help someone to win a jackpot this Friday is a question we won’t be able to answer until after the draw, but they certainly have just as much chance of appearing as any others.
Whether you want to enter your numbers for this Friday only or for every draw between now and Christmas day, visit this page to buy your tickets online and you won’t have to worry about losing them. Enjoy the last game of the month and be sure to let us know if you land the jackpot!
