Third French EuroMillions Jackpot Winner of 2013
14th January 2013 9:09 AM
The third French EuroMillions jackpot winner of 2013 was created on Friday 11 January after one lucky ticket matched all seven of the numbers drawn to win the top prize outright. The jackpot had rolled over in each of the two preceding games and that helped Friday’s winner to take down a fortune worth €34,191,508, which equates to £28,307,149 for those of you who are in the UK. With two French tickets and one UK ticket having shared a €38 million (£30 million) jackpot on New Year’s Day, it seems that France is having a pretty good January as far as the EuroMillions game is concerned!
The EuroMillions lottery results for Friday 11 January 2013 were 04, 22, 29, 37 and 41, with the numbers 04 and 07 appearing as the all-important Lucky Stars. There were five winning tickets at the second-tier prize level and each of those won €351,170 (£246,070) by matching all five of the main numbers and one of the two Lucky Stars. Eight tickets matched the five main numbers only to win a third-tier prize of €73,160 (£51,265) each, demonstrating just how much value a Lucky Star can add to an entry in the right circumstances.
79 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win €3,704 (£2,596) each, 1,251 entries won €204 (£143) each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star, and the prize for matching four main numbers only (which was won by 2,276 tickets) was €112 (£78). There were over 2.81 million EuroMillions prizes won across all 13 prize tiers, and the Millionaire Raffle game in the UK created yet another £1 million winner, this time with the number LBG257565.
Several of the numbers recently highlighted on our EuroMillions Statistics page as being most overdue have made a recent appearance, so let’s hope that the trend continues and helps someone else to win big. The most overdue main numbers at the time of writing are 46, 12, 13, 39 and 34, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 02.
We would like to extend our heartiest congratulations to the player in France who won the most recent jackpot last Friday and indeed to everyone who landed themselves a prize. Now we can all start thinking about winning the new jackpot of €15 million (around £12 million) this Tuesday, so visit this page to buy your tickets online and good luck with your numbers!
