Although the French jackpot winner had the biggest cause to celebrate on Tuesday, there were also some hefty consolation prizes won by players who came close to matching all of the numbers drawn. Six players won €372,269 (£246,962) each by matching the five main numbers along with one Lucky Star and another five players matched the five main numbers alone to win €148,908 (£98,785) each.
There were 87 winning tickets at the fourth tier level and each of those won €4,279 (£2,839) by matching four of the main numbers plus both Lucky Star numbers. In total more than 3.52 million EuroMillions prizes were won, and in the UK one player matched the Millionaire Raffle number VMZ049534 to win £1 million.
As we said earlier, the next jackpot in the EuroMillions game will take place this Friday 16 September and will have a default value of €15 million (around £12 million). Players who want to include one or more of the ‘most overdue’ numbers among their selections will be keen to note that the most overdue main numbers are 43, 41, 29, 11 and 40, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 03.
Whether you include any of the ‘most overdue’ numbers just mentioned or you rely entirely on your own selections or on numbers picked by our Random Number Generator, play EuroMillions online today and good luck in the draw this Friday!
