18 tickets came extremely close to sharing the jackpot, but fell short by just one Lucky Star number. The owners of those tickets had to settle for a second-tier prize of €163,926 (£116,345) each, which might not be in the same league as the €100 million jackpot but is still a win well worth celebrating. 31 tickets won €31,728 (£22,518) each after they matched all five main numbers only.
The fourth-tier prize on Friday was worth €4,639 (£3,293) to each of the tickets that matched four main numbers and two Lucky Stars, and there were 106 such tickets. A total of 4,842,728 EuroMillions prizes were won across all 13 prize tiers and in the UK a Millionaire Raffle prize worth £1 million was won by a single ticket bearing the winning number ZLJ501773.
We can’t begin to imagine how one might spend a €100 million fortune, and the chances are that the EuroMillions jackpot winner will have a staggering amount of cash left over even after he or she has bought all the cars, houses and other ‘dream purchases’ that most lottery players fantasise about. However the winner spends or invests their jackpot wealth, we congratulate them on their fantastic achievement and wish them the very best for the future.
Now that the €100 million jackpot has been landed, we get to start the new month of October with a brand new EuroMillions jackpot of €15 million (around £11 million) this Tuesday.
