Two Share Triple Rollover Jackpot
24th October 2011 10:38 AM
A €47.99 million EuroMillions triple rollover jackpot was won by two tickets on Friday 21 October, giving each one an equal share worth €23,999,325 (£20,841,014). Less than a decade ago the idea of winning an eight figure lottery jackpot in Europe would have sounded outlandish, but thanks to EuroMillions it is now a fact of life for lottery players. In fact, as last Friday’s draw demonstrated, it is possible to share the EuroMillions jackpot with another winner and still take home an eight-figure prize, and we think that this is something which none of us should take for granted.
The EuroMillions results last Friday were 02, 19, 33, 37 and 46, with the numbers 05 and 08 being drawn as the Lucky Stars. In addition to the jackpot winner there were 2,952,583 prize winners. Six of those won a second-tier prize worth €318,132 (£220,230) each by matching all five main numbers plus one of the Lucky Stars. Seven more players matched the five main numbers without either of the Lucky Stars to win €90,895 (£62,923) each.
89 tickets matched four main numbers plus both Lucky Stars to win €3,575 (£2,474) each at the fourth tier prize level and another 1,169 tickets won €238 (£164) each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. One player in the UK also managed to win £1 million by matching the number JRW089330 in the Millionaire Raffle game.
We know that the two jackpot winning tickets were purchased in Spain and the UK, but we don’t yet have any other information about the winners. If the owner of either ticket (or owners, if a ticket happened to be purchased by a syndicate) decides to make their win public we will naturally bring you more details as and when they become available.
In the meantime, the next EuroMillions jackpot this Tuesday 25 October will be worth the usual €15 million minimum (which will be around £12 million for players in the UK). Buy your EuroMillions tickets online today and the next jackpot winner could be you!
