Week Ends with a EuroMillions Rollover Jackpot
4th October 2012 10:08 AM
The second EuroMillions draw of the week will offer a rollover jackpot that is estimated to be worth around €26 million (£21 million) because no player was lucky enough to match all five main numbers as well as both Lucky Star numbers in the game on Tuesday. This latest rollover means that fifteen consecutive Tuesday jackpots have eluded players, so midweek players haven’t been having much success of late. Fortunately, there have been quite a few Friday jackpots won in the same span of time, including a €100 million jackpot last Friday, so players will no doubt be hoping that the next game this Friday will create another big winner.
When the most recent EuroMillions game took place on Tuesday 2 October, the main numbers drawn were 04, 16, 21, 36 and 42, and the Lucky Star numbers were 07 and 08. Although the €15 million (£12 million) jackpot remained elusive, six tickets caught all five of the main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to qualify for a second-tier prize of €180,307 each. Seven tickets matched all five main numbers without either of the Lucky Star numbers and won €51,516 (£36,599) each.
There were 47 tickets that won €3,836 (£2,725) each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars, whilst 982 tickets won €160 (£114) each after matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. The total number of EuroMillions prizes won on Tuesday was 1,705,092, and in the UK the Millionaire Raffle number BLM670766 was worth £1 million to the owner of the ticket that matched it.
EuroMillions Plus players in Ireland might have been hoping for a €500,000 top prize win to save the night, but it wasn’t to be. The numbers drawn were 06, 10, 18, 28 and 39, and the best that any ticket could do was match four of those numbers to win a second-tier prize of €2,000 each. 31 tickets managed to do that, and another 1,216 tickets matched three numbers to win €20 each.
Well done to everyone who won a consolation prize of some sort on Tuesday, and good luck to everyone who has a go at playing for the €26 million jackpot in the EuroMillions game this Friday. Buy your tickets online here and you just might win yourself a fortune from the comfort of your own home!
