Second-Tier Winner Lands a Million
18th August 2011 10:42 AM
The EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday 16 August rolled over yet again, making it five draws in a row without a top prize winner. However, the big news story from that draw was that there was just one player who matched the five main numbers (01, 13, 17, 18 and 45) and one of the two Lucky Stars (these were 03 and 08) required to win a second tier prize, and that player won €1,094,007 as a result.
In other words, the EuroMillions game on Tuesday made one player a millionaire even though the jackpot itself rolled over. There aren’t many lottery games that have the ability to do that, and this result should inspire EuroMillions players everywhere because it demonstrates that you don’t necessarily need to beat odds of 1 in 116 million to end up with a seven figure bank balance!
7 lucky players matched the five main numbers only to pick up a third-tier prize of €52,096 (£32,997) each, and another 53 players won €3,440 (£2,179) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The total number of EuroMillions Prizes won last Tuesday exceeded 1.9 million, and in the UK one player won a separate Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million with the number LJJ683472.
Because no player won the jackpot in the previous draw, the jackpot for the next draw this Friday 19 August will be worth around €65 million (around £57 million), which once again gives you the chance to win a celebrity-sized fortune which could change your life forever. If you would like to include one or more overdue numbers among your selections then the main numbers to consider are 43, 02, 09, 21 and 41 and the Lucky Stars which are most overdue to appear are 09 and 02. More information on these and all the other numbers used in the EuroMillions game can be found on our EuroMillions Statistics page.
Play EuroMillions online today and the draw this Friday just might make all your lottery jackpot dreams come true. Have fun and good luck!
