Another Rollover for EuroMillions!
There was another rollover for EuroMillions in the most recent game, and that extends the sequence of consecutive rollovers to three. That would not, by itself, be particularly unusual, but the situation can be seen in an entirely different light when you consider the fact that the first of those rollovers took place in a Superdraw game. On Friday 3 October we were all getting excited by the fact that we had a chance to win £77 million, but now, just three draws later, we can prepare to play for a jackpot on Tuesday 14 October that is expected to be worth £111 million!
Although no player was able to win the £101 million jackpot that was up for grabs on Friday 10 October, over 3.69 million consolation prizes were won. The biggest of those were landed at the second tier, where seven tickets – two of them purchased by players in the UK – matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win £271,449 each.
There were 11 tickets that matched five main numbers only to win £57,580 each at the third tier prize level, and another 67 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £4,726 each. All other winning tickets in the main game won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers, and the combined value of cash prizes won by UK participants was £6,830,959. As if that wasn't enough, another £1,000,000 was won by the player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number CWJ405938.
Whilst there was plenty of EuroMillions consolation prize excitement to be had last Friday, lottery fans are now looking ahead to the £111 million jackpot game this Tuesday. Those of you who enjoy keeping an eye on our EuroMillions Statistics will be interested to note that the most overdue main numbers right now are 37, 20, 41, 40 and 44, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 11.
Will the EuroMillions jackpot roll over yet again, or will someone land the £111 million prize this Friday? Click here to buy your tickets online and the next jackpot winner could be you! Good luck!
