A UK player put an end to a run of six EuroMillions rollovers last night and scooped a massive £53.1 million (€73.5 million) in the process. The ticket holder matched all five main numbers of 8, 20, 24, 28 and 49 plus Lucky Stars 8 and 9 to become the country’s 48th EuroMillions jackpot winner.

The player is yet to come forward and may not even realise yet that they are the lucky owner of a life-changing sum of money, but they headed up another night full of cash awards for players across Europe. A single player matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star to bag €1.2 million and nine players, four of whom bought their tickets in the UK, matched five numbers to receive £36,534 (€47,324).

Other prizes distributed on the night ranged from £3.20 (€4.20) for matching two main numbers up to £3,574 (€4,629) for matching four main numbers and two Lucky Stars. You can find a full prize breakdown from last night’s draw, including the Millionaire Maker code which is worth £1 million to one UK player, at the Results page of

There are plenty more chances this week to join last night’s winner on Millionaires’ Row, with an estimated £2 million up for grabs in this evening’s Lotto draw and £10 million (€15 million) available when EuroMillions is drawn again in Paris on Friday.
