Portuguese EuroMillions Player Wins €61.5 Million Jackpot

The EuroMillions jackpot was given away for just the second time this year in last night’s draw as a lucky player from Portugal matched all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars to pocket a top prize of €61.5 million (£54.6 million).

The winning numbers for Tuesday 13th March were 9, 11, 13, 33 and 49, with Lucky Stars 6 and 12. Apart from the player who landed the jackpot, there were over 1.8 million prize winners across Europe as participants snapped up cash awards ranging from £2.20 (€3.50) for matching two main numbers to £188,271 (€304,873) for matching five main numbers plus one Lucky Star.

Go to the EuroMillions Results page to see a full breakdown of the prizes won, plus details of all the supplementary draws in the different participating countries which created even more big winners.

Lucky Countries

Portugal has now had 67 jackpot winners since EuroMillions was launched in 2004, putting it fourth on the list of the most successful nations. France continues to lead the way with 87, just ahead of Spain on 85, but the latest result helps to keep Portugal in touch with third-placed UK (71) winners.

A UK player and a Spanish tiket holder had previously split a EuroMillions jackpot of £155.5 million (€177.7 million) on Friday 23rd February, becoming the first winners of the top prize in 2018. The UK winner quickly came forward to claim their money anonymously.

The lucky Portuguese player from last night has 90 days to claim their prize, but they can already start to think about how they might like to use the eight-figure sum and come up with a shopping list of items which would have previously been unobtainable. The Portuguese National Lottery has announced that the winning ticket was bought in Braga.

Choose Numbers

If you would like to follow in the footsteps of the latest winner and grab yourself a EuroMillions jackpot, you will have to take part in the game. The top prize will revert to €17 million (an estimated £15 million) for Friday night’s draw, and you can choose numbers online now or visit an authorised retailer. Good luck!
