A Big Week for EuroMillions Players!
We don’t know where the time has gone, but we are now in the final week of September and it promises to be a big week for EuroMillions players in particular. The jackpot in the EuroMillions game last Friday rolled over for the third time in a row, and that means the next game this Tuesday will now offer a triple rollover jackpot worth an estimated £27 Million. Then, on Friday, which is the last Friday of the month, the Millionaire Maker game will award a Mega Friday prize of £1 million plus a holiday of a lifetime to five UK EuroMillions players, guaranteed.
We will discuss the Mega Friday prizes in more detail later in the week, but first we should explain what happened in the previous EuroMillions game and focus on the triple rollover game coming up on Tuesday.
The EuroMillions results on Friday 18 September were 07, 29, 33, 34 and 39, and the numbers 07 and 08 were drawn as the Lucky Star numbers. Whilst the £22.45 million jackpot rolled over, two tickets that had been purchased outside the UK managed to match all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win their owners a second tier prize worth €704,195 each.
One of six tickets that won £60,061 each by matching the five main numbers only had been purchased in the UK. The same can be said about 15 of 37 tickets that matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win a fourth tier prize of £4,869 each. More than 2.22 million prizes were won in total, and UK tickets won a combined sum of over £3.27 million. That figure doesn’t include an additional £1 million that was won by the player who matched the Millionaire Maker code, which was SKB665653.
We would like to congratulate everyone who won a prize in the EuroMillions game last Friday, and we are keen to see players fare even better in the £27 million triple rollover draw this Tuesday. Visit our EuroMillions Statistics page to take a look at the numbers that are currently most overdue to make an appearance, then be sure to buy your tickets early and remember to let us know if you land the jackpot! Good luck!Published: Monday 21st September 2015
