Brit Shares New Year EuroMillions!
A British ticket was one of three that successfully landed a New Year’s Day EuroMillions jackpot worth £30,730,347. The other two winning tickets had both been purchased in France, and the numbers that made the first day of 2013 so memorable for the players concerned were 02, 07, 08, 36 and 49, along with the Lucky Star numbers 01 and 11. Another 25 tickets in the UK managed to win a Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million each and the total number of EuroMillions prizes won was over 2.7 million, so there really were winners galore last night!
We will get to the winning Millionaire Raffle numbers in a moment, but first we should tell you about some of the bigger consolation prizes that were won on Tuesday 1 January, 2013. In order of magnitude, there were two tickets that matched all five of the main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win £606,509 each, whilst nine tickets won £44,926 each by matching the five main numbers only. 50 tickets matched four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars to secure a fourth-tier prize of £4,043 each. All other winning tickets won prizes of up to £177 each, with the smallest prize of £2.80 going to players who matched just two main numbers.
Getting back to the special Millionaire Raffle game, the 25 winning numbers drawn last night were as follows:
GYS592682 HYW220331 HYW373840 HYW442609 HYW536466

HZM067237 HZM705870 HZP035366 HZP264075 HZP521101
As in the special Millionaire Raffle draw that was held on Christmas Day, every one of the numbers above is worth £1 million to the owner of the ticket that matches it. If you haven’t yet checked your tickets then now would be a very good time to do so, and if you find out that you have won, be sure to make your claim without delay!
The next EuroMillions jackpot this Friday 4 January will be worth around £12 million, but before we get to that we have a midweek Lotto jackpot of around £2.1 million to play for this evening (Wednesday 2 January).
