18 Millionaire Raffle Winners this Friday
This Friday 18 May, 18 EuroMillions players in the UK will each win a Millionaire Raffle prize worth £1,000,000 thanks to a special UK Millionaire Raffle Superdraw. As regular EuroMillions players will know, the Millionaire Raffle game normally creates one winner of £1,000,000 in every draw (making two new millionaires every week) but this Friday 18 winning numbers will be drawn instead, so players will have an even bigger chance of achieving millionaire status every time they buy a line of EuroMillions numbers!
Talking of EuroMillions, no ticket won the jackpot last Friday 11 May, so there is a quad-rollover jackpot of around £41 million to play for in the midweek game this Tuesday 15 May. The EuroMillions results for Friday were 01, 13, 17, 38 and 44, and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 11. Seven lucky tickets matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a second-tier prize of £177,783 each and nine other tickets won £46,092 each by matching the five main numbers only.
With no jackpot win on Friday, the biggest win for a EuroMillions player in the UK was achieved by the player who landed the £1,000,000 Millionaire Raffle prize by matching the number CMS978848. We expect that the player in question is particularly glad that every EuroMillions entry includes automatic entry to the Millionaire Raffle game, and this time next week it’s a certainty that another 19 players (1 this Tuesday and 18 on Friday) will be feeling exactly the same way!
Millionaire Raffle entries are generated automatically, so you don’t need to worry about picking any particular numbers. Of course, you might still want to pick your own EuroMillions numbers, and if you follow our ‘most overdue’ statistics you will be interested to hear that the most overdue main numbers right now are 02, 42, 14, 07 and 47, and the most overdue Lucky Stars are 04 and 07.
You can buy EuroMillions lottery tickets up to eight draws in advance, so if you buy your tickets online today you could secure your chance of winning on Tuesday and also on Friday, when the Millionaire Raffle game will create 18 new millionaires. Enjoy the games and good luck!
