Spain and Britain Celebrate EuroMillions Win
15th February 2010 10:14 AM
Players in Spain and Britain are celebrating after one ticket in each country matched the five main numbers and two Lucky Stars required to win the €129 million (around £112 million) jackpot on Friday 12 February. The EuroMillions results were 01, 05, 18, 38 and 45, and 04 and 06 were drawn as the Lucky Star numbers. No official details of the winners have yet been released, but in the UK it is thought that the winning ticket was bought by a couple from the town of Cirencester in Gloucestershire.
Because two tickets won the jackpot last Friday, the top prize will be shared equally, making each one worth €64.8 million (around £56 million). That is still a staggering amount of money, and it is far more than most people will even see in several lifetimes, let alone spend, but the EuroMillions game delivered it in a matter of minutes to the lucky winners.
12 other EuroMillions players matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star and won €570,771 (around £395,256) each, and 20 more matched just the five main numbers to win €97,185 (around £67,300) each. Even those players who only matched four main numbers and the two Lucky Stars (there were 234 such players) managed to win themselves a nice prize worth €5,933 (around $4,109) each, so there were plenty of happy faces across Europe. In fact, when you total up all of the EuroMillions prizes that were won last Friday, you discover that it exceeds 3.7 million!
Whilst the latest jackpot win has probably sated the appetite of the big winners in Spain and the UK, everyone else can look forward to a brand new chance to win a life-changing sum this Friday 19 February. The EuroMillions jackpot will be worth €15 million (around £13 million), so if having that kind of money in your bank account appeals to you, be sure to play EuroMillions online today!
