UK Wins its 51st EuroMillions Jackpot

Tonight’s EuroMillions jackpot will revert back to its base value of £10 million (€15 million) after a UK player snapped up a £28.5 million (€40.2 million) bounty on Friday night. The ticket holder is the 51st Briton to scoop the top prize in the popular pan-European game, putting the nation fourth in the list of most successful EuroMillions jackpot-winning countries.

Portugal lies five ahead of the UK on 56 jackpot wins, trailing Spain in second. A total of 74 Spanish tickets have matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars, four fewer than France, which boasts 78 top prizes since the game began in 2004.

However, players in the UK tend to do better than their European cousins in the other prize tiers, regularly winning far more cash amounts in each individual EuroMillions draw than any other nation. For example, Friday 14th August saw 630,512 UK tickets claim awards ranging from £3.40 (€4.30) for matching two main numbers up to the eight-figure jackpot. Compared with the next best-performing nation, Spain, with 451,668 winning tickets sharing a prize pool of just €3.5 million, that’s a rather good result!

In addition, one UK player is guaranteed to win £1 million every time EuroMillions is played, thanks to the Millionaire Maker supplementary game.

EuroMillions tickets are available now for tonight’s £10 million draw, with sales closing at 7:30pm BST (8:30pm CEST). You can get hold of them online or by popping into your nearest authorised retailer. Perhaps you could strike it lucky and become British jackpot winner number 52!

The EuroMillions jackpot was scooped by a French ticket holder last night after six rollovers had boosted the prize fund to £57.8 million (€72.9 million). The player became the first EuroMillions top prize winner since one of their compatriots shared a £25.8 million (€33 million) bounty with Mary Hamilton of Newtownabbey, Northern Ireland on Friday 7th November.

Last night’s winning numbers were 3, 15, 25, 44 and 49 with Lucky Stars 1 and 9, with one UK player receiving a very welcome £1 million pre-Christmas bonus thanks to Millionaire Maker. Other cash amounts won on the night ranged from £2.90 (€4.10) claimed by 1,196,634 players who matched two main numbers, up to £315,219 (€436,641) bagged by the three ticket holders who matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star.

EuroMillions returns on Friday with its basic but brilliant jackpot of £11 million (€15 million) alongside another £1 million for a UK ticket holder in Millionaire Maker. It is the perfect time of year to be boosting your bank balance with an eight-figure windfall as thermostats notch up, de-icer bottles drain and money flies out of your bank account as soon as it is deposited. Winning a EuroMillions prize would ensure an idyllic Christmas and the best possible start to 2015.

EuroMillions Hits Jackpot Cap of €190 Million

EuroMillions players will be eyeing up a potential haul of €190 million (roughly £150 million) after no one matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars last night. Although the top prize remained elusive it was still a hugely successful night with more than 4.3 million ticket holders winning cash amounts.

Awards ranged from £2.80 for matching two main numbers, which was won by 2,518,160 players, up to £241,508 which was claimed by eight ticket holders for matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star. One UK player will certainly be celebrating a seven-figure windfall after matching the winning Millionaire Raffle (soon to be Millionaire Maker) code and netting a cool £1 million.

Numbers drawn were 20, 21, 27, 33 and 40 with Lucky Stars 3 and 10 whilst the winning Millionaire Raffle code was GYW290078.

Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot of €190 million is the highest that the top prize is able to reach, with any funds that would have taken it over that amount being shared between the ticket holders in the winning tier closest to the jackpot. This makes it very likely that, even if there is no jackpot winner on Friday, there will still be a number of millionaires made!

If the jackpot rolls over again then the same will happen with the excess funds on Tuesday night and, if no one bags the main prize, the entire €190 million will also be shared amongst those players! There has never been a better chance to become a millionaire whilst matching some, if not all, of the numbers.

Lottery fans across Europe are already dreaming of a life spent hopping between the world’s most picturesque beaches while only taking time out for a spin in one of their fleet of supercars. This fantasy would be more than achievable with Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot, so make sure that you visit the EuroMillions page to get hold of your tickets. You can also buy them from authorised retailers.

Good luck!
