Portuguese Player Wins €17 Million EuroMillions Jackpot

The EuroMillions jackpot was won for the second draw in a row last night as a player from Portugal scooped €17 million (£15.1 million). A lucky ticket holder from Ireland had previously landed a top prize of €28.9 million on Friday 7th July.

The numbers drawn on Tuesday were 14, 22, 26, 42 and 50 with Lucky Stars 8 and 10, and more than 1.2 million prizes were given away across Europe. As well as the jackpot winner, Portugal also sold one of the two tickets which matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star, netting the lucky owner €369,210. The other winner in the second tier came from Ireland, adding to a great few days for EuroMillions players from the Emerald Isle.

The other prizes won last night spanned between £2.60 (€4.40) for matching two main numbers and £20,376 (€34,397) for matching five main numbers. Visit the EuroMillions Results page to find a full prize breakdown from the latest draw, as well as details of all the supplementary games played in the different participating countries.

Portugal has been the fourth most successful EuroMillions nation since the game began in 2004, having now created 65 jackpot winners. The UK is just one ahead of Portugal on 66, but both countries still trail a long way behind leaders France (85) and second-placed Spain (82).

The EuroMillions jackpot has now been won in three of the last four draws, after a UK player claimed the £87.5 million (€100 million) top prize in the Superdraw on Friday 30th June. The Irish participant who bagged last Friday’s jackpot has already made contact over their big win, and now someone in Portugal can also begin to look forward to a fantastic future.

The jackpot will stay at €17 million for the next draw on Friday, and it could just be that the winning run continues. If you would like to grab a great prize, you can either go to any authorised retailer or choose your numbers online. Good luck!
