The winning main EuroMillions numbers were 2, 11, 28, 42, 48 with the Lucky Star numbers 4 and 9. The Millionaire Maker code was HMGZ06080.
With the total winners of over 1.5 million, only two lucky players managed to match the five numbers and the Lucky Stars.
Last night, it was announced that the EuroMillions jackpot was won in the UK. Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said: “What an amazing night for UK EuroMillions players as two winners have shared tonight’s life-changing £62M EuroMillions jackpot! That makes it five jackpot wins by UK EuroMillions players so far this year!” He also urged players to carefully check their tickets and contact The National Lottery if they believe they are winners.
While some winners choose to make contact right away, others take longer to do it. Nevertheless, they have 180 days from the draw date to come forward and claim their prizes. They will also need to decide whether they’ll stay anonymous or share their winning stories with the public.

What’s the secret to winning?
The short answer is that there is no secret. The long answer is that although there is no recipe, there are different ways in which you can give the lottery a try and improve your chances of winning.
Some players use the same numbers for every draw as they mean something to them—their birth date, their wedding anniversary date, their house number, and so on.
Other players choose to develop their own winning strategy and use statistics to help them with that. They analyse the most common numbers, the most overdue numbers, and other insightful data.
There are also some players who leave it up to chance and they pick random numbers. For example, with just a few clicks, you can generate a random set of numbers with our random number generator.
Whichever strategy you go for, you too could be the next EuroMillions jackpot winner. Enter the lottery now by visiting an authorised retailer in the participating countries or online.
