No details have yet been released about the latest EuroMillions jackpot winner, but whether the win was achieved by a lottery syndicate or an individual playing alone, we’re betting that the owners of the lucky ticket are celebrating in style. Of course, it isn’t just the owner(s) of the jackpot-winning ticket with cause to celebrate, because more than 2.04 million other EuroMillions prizes were also won last Friday.
Six of those prizes were won by players who had matched the five main numbers and just one of the Lucky Star numbers. The prize for achieving that particular feat (and beating odds of 1 in 5,448,240) was €548,935 (around £478,584). Ten more players matched the five main numbers but no Lucky Stars (beating odds of 1 in 3,632,160) to win a prize worth €93,467 (around £59,094) each.
EuroMillions players in the UK are also entered into a Millionaire Raffle game (which is why tickets in the UK cost more than they do in other participating countries) and the winning Millionaire Raffle number on Friday 29 January was XGP422767. The player who was lucky enough to have that randomly-generated number on their EuroMIllions ticket won a prize of £1 million.
We congratulate the latest EuroMillions winners wherever they are, and urge everyone to have a go at the special birthday Mega Jackpot game this Friday 5 February. With €100,000,000 up for grabs, now is one of the best possible times to play EuroMillions online and see if you can’t rustle up the luck required to land a jackpot of your own. Someone beat the odds last week to become a multi-millionaire, and the odds of you winning an even bigger prize this Friday are exactly the same, so buy your tickets today and start thinking lucky thoughts!
