Second-Tier Prizes Save Friday EuroMillions
22nd October 2012 10:27 AM
It was up to the second-tier prizes to save the day for the sixth EuroMillions draw in a row on Friday because no ticket was able to take down the jackpot itself. The jackpot had a final value of €67.87 million (£55.29 million) and so the sixth rollover gives players an estimated jackpot of around €76 million (around £61 million) to try and win in the midweek game this Tuesday 23 October. It is now just over four months since a EuroMillions jackpot was landed on a Tuesday (the last such win was on Tuesday 19 June) so maybe it’s time for that trend to be broken.
The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Friday 19 October were 16, 29, 37, 40 and 44, and the Lucky Star numbers were 08 and 10. As we said a few moments ago, the second-tier saved the day and on Friday there were three tickets that matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win €655,940 each. At the third-tier level, ten tickets matched five main numbers only to win €65,594 (£46,100) each.
With 13 prize levels in all and the only vacant one relating to the jackpot itself, the winners didn’t stop there. 40 tickets matched four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars to win €8,199 (£5,762) each, whilst 1,293 tickets won €221 (£155) each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. 2,756 tickets matched four main numbers only to win €103 (£72) each, and another 2,829,501 tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers. In addition, one player in the UK matched the Millionaire Raffle number HNK015233 to win a prize of £1,000,000.
Followers of our EuroMillions Statistics were doubly rewarded on Friday when one of the most often picked numbers (the Lucky Star number 08) appeared yet again, along with one of the most overdue numbers (the Lucky Star number 10). The most often picked main numbers are now 50, 04, 19, 12 and 38, and the most often picked Lucky Stars are 03 and 08. The most overdue numbers are the main numbers 47, 14, 24, 46 and 50, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 05 and 11.
The outcome of a lottery game is never influenced by past results, so it doesn’t matter that there hasn’t been a Tuesday jackpot win since June or that the jackpot has rolled on each of the last six occasions – the odds of you winning the jackpot this Tuesday are exactly the same as always. That being the case, click here to play EuroMillions online if you fancy your chances and good luck!
