Tuesday EuroMillions is Here!
9th May 2011 10:29 AM
After weeks of waiting patiently, lottery players can at last start celebrating the arrival of the new Tuesday EuroMillions game. The first such draw takes place this Tuesday 10 May and, as we reminded you recently, will boast a Mega Jackpot of €100 million (around £85 million). With every EuroMillions ticket now giving players a 1 in 13 chance of winning any prize at all, there has seldom been a better time to buy multiple tickets in the hope of landing the biggest prize of all.
The last EuroMillions game on Friday 6 May offered a rollover jackpot of €28.77 million (around £25.22 million), and one lucky ticket managed to scoop the whole thing outright. The main EuroMillions results were 11, 16, 20, 22 and 28, and the Lucky Star numbers were 04 and 09.
14 players matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a second-tier prize of €227,484 each, and 19 players matched the five main numbers only to win €47,568 (around £31,472) each. Another 149 players won €4,333 (around £2,867) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
In total, more than 1.94 million EuroMillions prizes were won on Friday 6 May, and one UK player won £1 million by matching the number BRY233761 in the associated Millionaire Raffle Game.
Now players who want to win themselves a EuroMillions jackpot will need to correctly select five main numbers from 1 to 50 and two Lucky Stars from 1 to 11. The odds of matching all seven numbers are 1 in 116,531,800, so we can expect the jackpot to roll over more often than previously, but the improved overall odds will mean that the average player will win prizes a lot more often.
Demand for tickets for this first ever Tuesday EuroMillions draw – and the Mega Jackpot that it offers – is sure to be high, so buy your lottery tickets online here as soon as you can. You can also buy tickets for the draw this Friday 13 May at the same time if you would like to do so. However you proceed, keep your fingers crossed and good luck in the game on Tuesday!
