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!
