Just one ticket was able to match all five main numbers and one Lucky Star in the midweek game on Tuesday, and that ticket was rewarded with a massive second-tier prize of €1,041,435. There aren’t many lottery games that are capable of transforming a player into a millionaire even when the jackpot rolls over, but EuroMillions is one of the few that is, and it was good to see a demonstration of that on Tuesday.
At the third-tier level, eight tickets matched five main numbers only to win a much more modest (but still perfectly desirable) prize of €43,393 (£30,200) each. 32 tickets won €5,424 (£3,775) each by matching four main numbers as well as both of the Lucky Stars, and another 551 tickets matched four main numbers plus one Lucky Star to win €275 (£191) each. There were more than 1.47 million prizes won overall, plus a prize of £1 million paid to a UK player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number MBT138027.
None of the most overdue numbers appeared in Tuesday's game, so the main numbers to look out for remain the same (46, 12, 13, 39 and 34), as do the Lucky Star numbers (06 and 02). Players who prefer following numbers that have previously appeared most often will want to keep an eye on the main numbers 50, 04, 19, 38 and 11, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 03 and 05.
