UK Ticket Lands EuroMillions
23rd August 2010 9:32 AM
A single ticket purchased in the UK won the EuroMillions jackpot worth €15 million (£12,202,500) last Friday 20 August. It is not known at this stage whether the ticket was bought by an individual player or by someone representing a lottery syndicate, but we can say with a fair amount of certainty that whoever won will be very glad that they chose to play EuroMillions last week! Of course, it could be that the winner isn’t yet aware of their success, in which case we would encourage everyone reading this item to check the winning numbers without delay. Even if you haven’t won the jackpot you could still have won a large consolation prize…
The EuroMillions results for Friday 20 August were 05, 27, 31, 40 and 42, and the two Lucky Star numbers which are also required to land the jackpot were 01 and 06. The ticket which matched all seven of those numbers (beating odds of 1 in 76,275,360) is, as we said a moment ago, now worth €15 million. Another EuroMillions ticket purchased in the UK is worth £1 million thanks to the Millionaire Raffle number, which was HWB103972.
All EuroMillions players dream of winning prizes that will make them millionaires, but we should never forget the fact that winning a consolation prize can also be a fairly life-changing experience. Just ask the four players who matched the five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Star numbers to win a second-tier prize of €691,609 (around £495,204) each. That might not be enough to embark on a complete life of luxury but it should definitely be enough for most people to buy themselves a new home and car and maybe take a well deserved holiday or two.
Seven players matched the five main numbers only to win a third-tier prize of €112,153 (around £80,303) each. Again, that kind of prize isn’t sufficient to suddenly start spending cash recklessly, but it will make a big difference to those who were lucky enough to land it.
The next EuroMillions jackpot this Friday 27 August will once again be worth a cool €15 million, so play EuroMillions online today and it could soon be your turn to win a bank account full of cash. Have fun and good luck!
