Christmas Jackpot Snowballs
Updated: Monday 20th July 2015
The last EuroMillions draw before Christmas will be worth a staggering £54 million after no player matched the five main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers that are required to claim the top prize. The lottery results that helped give us this festive triple rollover jackpot were 20, 41, 43, 44 and 46, and the Lucky Stars were 02 and 09. The EuroMillions game this Friday 18 December gives players a thrilling chance to secure multi-millionaire status before the big day itself, so if you have left your Christmas shopping until the last minute you might like a last-minute £54 million win to match!
Four players managed to matched five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Star numbers in last Friday’s EuroMillions game, winning £616,198 each, so for those players the celebrations have already started. Another eight players matched five main numbers only to win £87,433 each – not enough to live like a king, but certainly enough to enjoy the Christmas period like one!
The Lotto draw on Saturday was a lot more forthcoming as far as jackpot winners were concerned, and the winning numbers (03, 13, 22, 23, 39 and 45), created two of them. The jackpot fund was worth £4,333,586, so each of the two winners is now £2,166793 richer than they were this time next week.
We like that phrase – ‘this time last week’ – because it demonstrates just how real the possibility of winning is for everyone who decides to play lottery games. It doesn’t matter what situation you are in right now, or who you are, or where you live – every ticket you buy gives you exactly the same chance of winning as everyone else. If that observation inspires you to renew your lottery optimism and play for a few million over the next seven days or so then we wish you all the luck in the world.
This time next week we will be telling you about all about the next batch of winners in the EuroMillions and Lotto draws, so if you fancy being one of the lucky players that we end up talking about, you know exactly what to do – buy lottery tickets online today and keep your fingers crossed!Published: Monday 14th December 2009
