Two Tickets Win EuroMillions Jackpot
9th January 2012 10:22 AM
Two tickets matched all seven numbers required to win the EuroMillions jackpot on Friday 6 January, and although we don’t yet know exactly who owns those tickets, we do know that theywere purchased in France and Spain. The jackpot had a final value of €73,113,564 (£60,355,247) so each of the winning tickets is now worth €36,556,782 (£30,177,623). In the UK, one ticket won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number CXD737171.
The EuroMillions results last Friday were 01, 06, 10, 12 and 31, with the numbers 02 and 07 being drawn as the Lucky Stars. Nine tickets missed out on a share of the jackpot by just one Lucky Star number, but each of those picked up a hefty consolation prize of €220,936 (£153,061) each, so we don’t think that there will have been too many tears of disappointment.
26 tickets matched all five main numbers without either Lucky Star to win €25,493 (£17,661) each, whilst another 213 tickets won €1,556 (£1,078) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The total number of prizes won in last Friday’s EuroMillions draw was 3,697,302, which illustrates just how keen players were to try and become the first jackpot winner of the year.
With that particular claim to fame now out of the picture, the EuroMillions jackpot for the next draw has been reset to the usual €15 million (around £12 million for players in the UK). None of the previously highlighted overdue numbers made an appearance last Friday, so the most overdue main numbers are still 13, 08, 35, 32 and 46, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 04.
Players will now be wondering if the EuroMillions lottery will pay out two jackpots in a row or whether a new sequence of rollovers will begin without delay. The answer to that question will become apparent this Tuesday 10 January, so play EuroMillions online today and you will have just as much chance of winning as anyone else! Good luck!
