Bizarre drawing of the EuroMillions

Unsurprisingly, in a bizarre drawing of the EuroMillions lottery last night there were no ticket holders who matched all 5 main EuroMillions number plus both lucky stars. There were, however 15 lucky EuroMillions ticket holders who matched the 5 main lottery numbers plus 1 lucky star. That’s nearly twice as many EuroMillions tickets that won the 2nd prize compared to the number of tickets that won the 3rd prize.

As a rule we see more 3rd place EuroMillions winners in any given draw than we do 2nd place winners. It seems like common sense, doesn’t it? To win the 2nd place EuroMillions prize you have to match the five main lottery numbers drawn plus one of the two lucky stars but to win the 3rd prize you simply have to match the five main lottery numbers. Each of the 2nd place winners in last night’s EuroMillions draw won £140,538.70 and the 3rd place lottery winners will receive £74,779.90. The tightly grouped EuroMillions lottery numbers drawn last night were; 18, 19, 25, 30 and 44. The lucky stars were 1 and 3 so it’s no wonder the jackpot wasn’t won.

Even though no new lottery millionaires were made from last night’s EuroMillions lottery draw there was one lottery millionaire created, and they are a UK EuroMillions player too. Thanks to the Millionaire Raffle, which is included with all UK EuroMillions tickets sold, one lucky EuroMillions ticket holder is now £1 million better off. The EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle number was MCC168985.

There were no jackpot winners in last night’s Mega Millions draw either. The Mega Millions lottery numbers drawn last night were; 4, 3, 41, 51 and 56. The Mega Ball was 38. The Mega Millions jackpot rolls over to a staggering $83 million for Tuesday night’¢s draw.
