Swiss Player Wins Huge EuroMillions Jackpot

A Swiss player became the biggest EuroMillions winner in their country’s history last night after matching all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The lucky ticket holder won a jackpot of CHF157 million (€135.3 million/£119.8 million) to bring an end to a run of 12 rollovers.

EuroMillions Results

Tuesday’s winning numbers were 8, 15, 30, 38 and 46, with Lucky Stars 4 and 7. There were more than 2.7 million participants across Europe who picked up prizes, giving them the perfect boost ahead of Christmas.

Three players - two from the UK and one from Spain - matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £285,288 (€434,845) each, while the other prizes won ranged from £3 (€4.60) for matching two main numbers to £28,477 (€43,405) for matching five main numbers. Go to the EuroMillions Results page for more information, including a full prize breakdown and details about all the supplementary draws.

Swiss Success

While players in all nine participating nations enjoyed success, the evening belonged to Switzerland. The country had not had a jackpot winner since 21st March 2014, but one very fortunate player was able to celebrate last night after correctly predicting all seven numbers. The winning ticket was bought in Zurich on the day of the draw, at about 12.30pm.

It was the 11th largest jackpot ever to be won on EuroMillions and the biggest in Switzerland, eclipsing the previous record of CHF115.5 million from August 2013. Switzerland has now had 16 jackpot winners since EuroMillions was launched in 2004, making it the sixth most successful country. Visit the EuroMillions Winners page to find out which nations have been the luckiest.

Festive EuroMillions

As the Swiss winner looks forward to a fantastic 2018 and beyond, the EuroMillions jackpot will reset to €17 million (approximately £14 million) for the final draw before Christmas this Friday. If you would like to get your hands on an eight-figure sum of money in time for the festive season, you can choose numbers online now or pop along to an authorised retailer in any participating country. Good luck, and merry Christmas!
