British Ticket Wins EuroMillions Jackpot
A single lottery ticket purchased by a player in this country won the EuroMillions jackpot on Friday night, bringing the number of EuroMillions jackpots landed in the UK over the last two months to three. The jackpot on Friday 25 September had a final value of £35.17 million, which compares well to the last two jackpots won by British tickets, which were worth £22.36 million on Tuesday 8 September and £28.59 million on Friday 14 August.
The EuroMillions results that delivered the latest jackpot into the hands of a British player were 13, 14, 23, 30 and 37, along with the Lucky Star numbers 02 and 08.

Unfortunately, the third tier was absent of UK winners, but six tickets purchased elsewhere matched the five main numbers only to win €86,233 each.
There were 92 tickets that matched four of the main numbers plus both of the Lucky Star numbers to win a fourth tier prize of £2,140 each, and more than 2.78 million prizes were won at the lower levels. Tickets purchased in this country landed more than £39.33 million in prize money, and that doesn’t include any of the prizes landed in the Millionaire Maker game.
It was a Mega Friday last Friday, so five EuroMillions players in the UK won a Millionaire Maker prize of £1 million each. Those winners will also get to choose one of three first class trips around the world which will allow them to enjoy 14 nights in some of the most attractive locations on the planet. The five winning Millionaire Maker codes on Friday were:
Now that the multi-rollover jackpot has been won, the next EuroMillions game this Tuesday 29 September will offer a brand new top prize of around £10 million. The most overdue main numbers as we head towards that draw are 25, 38, 24, 28 and 41, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 11 and 03, so do look out for those and good luck with whatever numbers you choose to play for yourself!Published: Monday 28th September 2015
