Brits Scoop Plenty in EuroMillions Lottery
British players scooped plenty of cash in last night’s EuroMillions lottery game despite the fact that the jackpot itself rolled over for the fourth time in a row. There were over 1.83 million consolation prizes landed in total, and the combined value of those prizes was £2,092,002. We can’t say for sure, but we would assume that many of the Brits who won themselves a slice of that sum will be having a go at winning even more in the next game this Friday 8 March, when the jackpot will be worth around £44 million!
For those of you who haven’t yet checked the EuroMillions results for Tuesday 5 March, we can tell you that the main numbers drawn were 08, 19, 31, 33 and 39, whilst the numbers 02 and 07 were drawn as the Lucky Stars. Although no ticket could match all of those numbers, seven tickets managed to match the five main numbers as well as one Lucky Star to win £105,303 each, and two of those winning tickets had been purchased in the UK.
Four tickets (none of them owned by British players) matched five main numbers only to win a third-tier prize of €91,934 each, and 54 tickets matched four of the main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars to land a prize of £2,275 each. There were another 1,837,708 winning tickets at the lower prize levels, and one additional ticket gave its player a Millionaire Raffle fortune of £1 million after matching the number DGT680594.
Whilst it would have been nice to shout about another EuroMillions jackpot win for the UK, having an even bigger top prize of around £44 million to look forward to at the end of the week is a pretty good alternative. Players who don’t want to wait until Friday to have another go at becoming a multimillionaire should consider getting involved in the midweek Lotto game this evening. The jackpot is expected to be worth around £2 million, so if winning that kind of money sounds good click here to buy your tickets online and keep your fingers crossed!
