UK Players Anticipate Millionaires Month
23rd November 2011 10:24 AM
EuroMillions players in the UK are eagerly anticipating a Millionaires Month event that starts this Friday 25 November and runs through to Friday 23 December. This event focuses on the UK-only Millionaire Raffle game that usually awards one prize of £1 million in each draw, but on the two specific dates just mentioned the number of £1 million prizes will be increased to 18 and 25, respectively. Millionaire Raffle draws which take place between those two dates will continue to create one millionaire each, so a total of 50 players in the UK are guaranteed to become millionaires before Christmas regardless of how they fare with the EuroMillions jackpots themselves.
Those of you who buy your EuroMillions tickets in the UK will obviously want to take full advantage of this special event. Tickets costs exactly the same as usual (all UK tickets are priced a little higher to fund one Millionaire Raffle entry by default) so the only thing that goes up during the Millionaires Month event is your chance of becoming a millionaire.
EuroMillions players who don’t live in the UK shouldn’t feel too disappointed because the EuroMillions jackpot itself will be worth around €35 million (around £30 million) this Friday 25 November. That’s because no player won the jackpot in the most recent game on Tuesday 22 November.
The EuroMillions results on Tuesday were 16, 18, 24, 38 and 40, and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 04. Two tickets matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to land a massive second-tier prize of €517,285 each, and four other tickets won €86,214 each by matching the five main numbers only. The total number of EuroMillions prizes won was 1,619,247.
Winning a EuroMillions double rollover jackpot of around €35 million this Friday (or one of the 18 Millionaire Raffle prizes in the UK) would make life very exciting for those involved, and the Christmas shopping possibilities would be incredible. Play EuroMillions online today and by the end of the week you could be planning the biggest winter celebration of your life! Good luck!
