Another Brit Wins EuroMillions Jackpot
One EuroMillions lottery ticket purchased in the UK matched all of the numbers required to land a quad-rollover jackpot worth £45,160,171 on Tuesday 7 February. This win comes less than three weeks after Gareth and Catherine Bull of Mansfield won a EuroMillions jackpot worth £40.62 million, so it looks like 2012 has got off to the best possible start for EuroMillions players in the UK. The numbers that enabled the latest jackpot-winner to succeed on such a massive scale were 03, 15, 17, 28 and 33, along with the Lucky Star numbers 02 and 04.
The winner of the £45.16 million jackpot on Tuesday isn’t yet known, but if we get any further details about them at some point we will naturally pass them on to you straight away. In the meantime, there are plenty of other EuroMillions players celebrating too because over 2.24 million prizes were won in addition to the jackpot itself, and that doesn’t include the £1,000,000 prize landed by the Millionaire Raffle player who matched the number VCW368117.
Nine tickets matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €135,772 each, and if you’re wondering why we quoted euros there and not pounds sterling it’s because none of those winning tickets belonged to players in the UK. 11 tickets (3 bought by UK players) won a third-tier prize of £24,842 each after matching the five main numbers only, and 88 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £1,552 each.
We congratulate the latest EuroMillions jackpot winner (who is now the seventh biggest winner in the UK) and we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that the current run of success enjoyed by players in this country will continue.
The jackpot for the next EuroMillions game has now been reset to €15 million, which should equate to around £12 million, so if you fancy having a go at becoming the next big winner, buy your lottery tickets online today. You can also play for a midweek Lotto rollover jackpot of around £7.2 million on Wednesday 8 February, so if you participate in both games you will have two chances of winning a life-changing sum of money. Enjoy the games and good luck!
