The numbers drawn on Tuesday 8th May were 17, 25, 35, 39 and 44, with Lucky Stars 2 and 5. As Austria celebrated its 15th EuroMillions jackpot winner, UK players also enjoyed some stunning success.

One ticket holder matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a mammoth £541,468, while the other prizes given away ranged from £3.20 for matching two main numbers to £18,016 for matching five main numbers.

The codes HLFV95896 and XDCQ90512 were drawn in the Millionaire Maker, instantly netting the two players with matching tickets £1 million each. Go to the EuroMillions Results page to find out more information about the draw, including a full prize breakdown.

Big EuroMillions Jackpots

The EuroMillions jackpot had previously been won on Tuesday 24th April, when a single participant pocketed £121 million to become the UK’s third-largest lottery winner. They quickly came forward to claim their money, but decided to remain anonymous.

The top prize has now been won six times in 2018, including the £155.5 million draw on Friday 23rd February when a UK winner shared the jackpot with someone from Spain. The jackpot will reset to £14 million for the next draw on Friday.

Largest Lotto Prize of the Year

The Lotto jackpot stands at an even higher value than EuroMillions ahead of Wednesday night’s game, having climbed to £18.4 million. It is the largest prize to have been offered on the game all year, eclipsing the £18.1 million won by 87-year-old Dennis Banfield and his wife Shirley on Saturday 17th February.

Whether you want to try and become the UK’s biggest Lotto winner of the year, snap up the next EuroMillions jackpot or even do both, you can visit an authorised retailer or join an online syndicate to give yourself a chance of winning.
