Spanish Player Wins EuroMillions Superdraw Jackpot

Spanish Player Wins EuroMillions Superdraw Jackpot

One lucky player has landed the biggest EuroMillions jackpot of the year after matching all the numbers on Friday 7th February. The winning ticket was sold in Spain. Find out all about what happened in the Superdraw.

Winning EuroMillions Numbers

The winning numbers in Friday’s Superdraw were 9, 15, 17, 25, and 40, with Lucky Stars 3 and 9. It proved to be a special night for players in all nine participating countries as a host of big prizes were given away, and it was quickly announced that one ticket from Spain had snapped up the jackpot.

Go to the EuroMillions Results page for a full prize breakdown from Friday’s draw. You will find how many prizes were won in each nation, the value of all the awards and much more, including the winning Millionaire Maker code that guaranteed one UK player a £1 million windfall.

The wait now begins for the jackpot winner to come forward. They can decide to stay anonymous or go public, and can then look forward to enjoying life as Spain's 102nd jackpot winner.

Superdraw Marks New EuroMillions Era

Superdraws push the jackpot up to a guaranteed amount such as €130 million regardless of what happened in the preceding draw, so it did not matter that the top prize on Tuesday had only been worth £34 million (€40 million).

These special draws help to create some of the game’s biggest winners and are set to take place even more often under new rules that were introduced on 1st February. The latest Superdraw was scheduled to coincide with these changes.

The changes have seen the prize structure adjusted so that a higher percentage of the prize fund goes to the jackpot in every draw. The jackpot is therefore set to rise even faster from draw to draw.

The jackpot cap has also been increased to €200 million as part of the latest changes, setting up the possibility of a new record for the largest-ever win. The current record for the biggest jackpot stands at €190 million, which was most recently hit on Tuesday 8th October when someone from the UK pocketed the whole lot (worth £170 million). 

Don’t Forget To Claim

If you’re not sure whether you have won a prize in the latest draw, use the EuroMillions Checker or the new EuroMillions App to compare the numbers on your ticket against the official results. Don’t forget to look at the Millionaire Maker code too, then make sure to come forward and claim in time if you are a winner.

Millions in prize money goes unclaimed every year, whether because of players forgetting to check their tickets, losing them or not realising there is a deadline for claims. The most recent UK jackpot winner, who landed £40 million on 3rd December, has still not claimed their prize more than two months later. The winning ticket, which was sold in Dorset, will expire on 31st May.

The best way to avoid missing out on prizes is to play online, as you don’t have to worry about keeping a ticket safe and will always be notified when you win. You can also take part at a time that suits you on your phone, computer or tablet, so you won’t be caught up in a queue in-store.

Whether you purchase your tickets from an authorised retailer or choose your numbers online, you can take part in Tuesday’s draw now for the chance to become the next EuroMillions winner
