EuroMillions Finally Rolls Over
EuroMillions ticket holders were starting to make a habit of winning the jackpot, but no one was able to match the numbers 7, 21, 23, 36, 38 and Lucky Stars 6 and 8 on Tuesday 12th June. It was a disappointing night for players in the UK, with no winners in any of the top three prize tiers. There was success elsewhere, however, as five lucky tickets matched five numbers and one Lucky Star to take home just over €142,000 each. The quintet of winning tickets were spread across three participating countries, with two apiece from France and Portugal, and one from Belgium.

Trio of Jackpot Millionaires In June
This month was fast becoming one of the most successful in EuroMillions history, with three jackpot winners spread over the course of just eight days. It was the first time in three years that this incredible feat had happened, and the lucky run began on Friday 1st June when two winning tickets, bought in Portugal and Spain, split a jackpot worth just under £70 million (€80 million). The winning Spanish ticket was bought in the Catalonian city of Tarragona.
Ireland got in on the action three days later as a single jackpot-winning syndicate ticket scooped the full £14.8 million (€17 million) in the following draw on Tuesday 5th June. It was the country’s 13th jackpot winner since joining the lottery in 2004, and its first this year. 32 colleagues from Stakelums Home and Hardware in Co Tipperary were revealed as the recipients of the eight-figure windfall, and some of the winners have already come forward to claim their prize.
The EuroMillions jackpot was won again three days later as a ticket holder in Spain created history by matching all seven numbers, taking home £14.9 million (€17 million). The ticket was purchased in the Biscay province at Portmetxeta, 7B, in Barakaldo. Disappointingly, the jackpot wasn’t won for a fourth consecutive time on Tuesday night, but it’s been a historic month for EuroMillions enthusiasts.
£1 Million UK Millionaire Maker Prize Still Unclaimed
A winning UK Millionaire Maker ticket worth £1 million is about to expire, and lottery officials have urged the owner of the ticket to come forward and claim their prize before it is too late. The ticket was bought in the Newcastle region for the draw on 19th December 2017. The winning code XMKV 63264 will be deemed invalid if the deadline passes and the winner doesn’t come forward.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Time really is running out for the winner of this prize, but we are still hopeful that someone will come forward at the very last minute to claim the money. This life-changing prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there.”
