UK Ticket Holder Scoops Entire Second Tier EuroMillions Prize Pool
12th May 2014 11:49 AM
One UK EuroMillions ticket holder would have had a weekend to remember as they successfully matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star in Friday’s draw to secure the second tier prize. The lucky player took home the entire prize pool worth an impressive £1,068,992 (€1,460,504) as they were the only player in Friday’s draw to match six of the seven numbers drawn.
Having a single winner in the second tier is unusual and has only happened four times so far this year. There has not been a single UK winner in the second tier since the draw on 25th September 2012 and, on that occasion, the lucky winner took home £821,669 (€1,119,328).
The second tier winner in Friday’s draw was joined by over 2.4 million players who won prizes worth between £2.80 (€3.80) for matching just two main numbers up to £50,904 (€69,547) for matching all five main numbers. Another UK ticket holder struck it lucky in the additional Millionaire Raffle game and matched the code XDZ584385 to win the £1 million prize. To see if you were a winner in Friday’s draw, and to view the full prize breakdown, visit the EuroMillions Results page.
Tomorrow night’s draw offers players the chance to win a £25 million (€31 million) jackpot following the previous two draws passing without a top tier winner. To be in with a chance of scooping this double rollover jackpot, make sure you have your tickets ready. EuroMillions tickets can be purchased online through the Buy Tickets page or from an authorised retailer up until 19.30 BST / 20.30 CEST tomorrow evening.
