Portuguese Player Wins €36.5 Million EuroMillions Jackpot

A lucky player from Portugal became the 13th EuroMillions jackpot winner of the year last night after matching all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The top prize had grown to €36.5 million (£33 million) following a couple of draws without a winner, and participants from across Europe set out to try and make their dreams come true.

The numbers drawn were 15, 25, 26, 40 and 41 with Lucky Stars 4 and 5. As well as the jackpot winner, there were four ticket holders - two from Spain and one each from France and the UK - who matched five main numbers plus one Lucky Star to land £116,466 (€190,106) each. Another five players matched five main numbers to receive £21,701 (€35,422) each.

The remaining prizes ranged from €3 (€4.90) for matching two main numbers to £2,211 (€3,609) for matching four main numbers plus two Lucky Stars. Check out the EuroMillions Results page for a full prize breakdown, including details of all the various supplementary games such as the UK Millionaire Maker and My Million.

Portugal is the fourth most successful EuroMillions country and has now produced 66 jackpot winners since the game was launched in 2004. France (85) and Spain (82) are at the top of the list, while the UK is just ahead of Portugal on 67 after crowning four jackpot winners in 2017. The most recent UK winner enjoyed their success on Friday 28th July, scooping £51.7 million, and came forward a few days later to have their claim verified.

EuroMillions fans can now look forward to the next draw on Friday night, when there will be a jackpot of £15 million (€17 million) available if anyone can match the full winning line. You can get involved by visiting authorised retailers in participating countries or choosing numbers online. Good luck!
