April Mega Friday Prizes Announced
Updated: Monday 11th April 2016
The prizes that are lined up for this month’s Mega Friday Millionaire Maker game on Friday 29 April have been announced, and we can tell you that five lucky players will each win £1 million plus a luxury stay under the sea. Full details of that prize will become available later in the month, but if the idea of spending some time enjoying the tranquillity of life beneath the ocean appeals, the April Mega Friday game is one that you will certainly want to participate in. If you don’t want to risk forgetting to buy your tickets closer to the time, entering your numbers for the next six consecutive EuroMillions draws (or the next three Friday draws) would guarantee you a chance of winning.
One player who should know exactly how it feels to win a Millionaire Maker prize of £1 million is the owner of the ticket that achieved that feat in the latest draw by matching the code NHB094378. That was bigger than any of the prizes won in the main EuroMillions game because no player succeeded in matching all seven numbers, so the jackpot (worth £46.2 million) rolled over for the sixth time in a row. Friday's winning numbers were 6, 8, 26, 43 and 49 with Lucky Stars 6 and 10.
Two tickets matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a second tier prize of £562,697 each, and we can confirm that one of those tickets had been purchased in the UK. Five of seven tickets that won £53,590 each at the third tier had also been played by EuroMillions participants in this country, so there was plenty for players to celebrate at the higher levels.
There was even more for UK players to enjoy at the lower levels, because more than 588,000 entries won smaller prizes and participants in this country landed over £3.91 million, not including the £1 million Millionaire Maker prize mentioned earlier. Well done to everyone concerned, and we look forward to seeing if anyone can fare even better in the next game.
The jackpot in that next game, which takes place this Tuesday 12 April, will be worth an estimated £51 million. Those of you who like to keep an eye on the most overdue numbers will be interested to note that the most overdue main numbers at the time of writing are 45, 17, 11, 18 and 35, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 04 and 01.
