Single Ticket Wins Double Rollover
25th April 2011 10:42 AM
A single ticket scooped the entirety of the double rollover jackpot in the EuroMillions game on Friday 22 April, so somebody somewhere is now €43,415,570 (around £38,301,216) richer than they were on Friday afternoon. Those of you who haven’t yet checked your entries would be wise to do so now, just in case you have won a major prize or maybe even the jackpot itself. The main numbers were 11, 22, 36, 45 and 48, and the Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 04.
Second-tier prizes of €362,274 (around) £249,298 were won by nine players who beat odds of 1 in 5,448,240 to match the five main numbers and one Lucky Star. Eight players won €115,658 (around £79,590) each for matching five main numbers only. Players who matched four main numbers and two Lucky Stars (there were 91 such individuals) won €7,263 (around £4,998) each. In total, more than 1.65 million EuroMillions prizes were won last Friday, and one player in the UK landed a prize worth £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number YRH248029.
Of the numbers that were drawn last Friday, just one had been previously highlighted as being ‘most overdue’ to make an appearance, and that was the Lucky Star 01. This means that the most overdue main numbers are still 30, 31, 05, 16 and 40, but the most overdue Lucky Stars are now 09 and 05. Visit our EuroMillions Statistics page and you will find many more interesting items of information which – if you are lucky – could help you become one of the next big EuroMillions winners.
With another EuroMillions game now played, there are just two more to go before the rules change. When you buy tickets from Saturday 7 May you will need to pick five main numbers from the range 1 to 50 (which is the same as it is now) and two Lucky Stars from the range 1 to 11 (currently 1 to 9). As we have said before, this will make the jackpot a little more difficult to win, but the addition of a 13th prize tier will actually improve your odds of winning any prize at all. Add in the fact that there will be two draws per week and EuroMillions players should be able to enjoy the winning experience a lot more more often!
The next EuroMillions jackpot this Friday 29 April will be worth €15 million (around £13 million) so buy your lottery tickets here and good luck!
