Double Rollover for EuroMillions Players
Lottery players will have a double rollover jackpot of around £28 million to play for in the EuroMillions game this Friday after no player succeeded in matching all five main numbers and the two Lucky Stars on Tuesday 14 February. The EuroMillions results were 14, 27, 36, 42 and 46, with the numbers 08 and 11 being drawn as the Lucky Stars. Although there was no Valentine’s Day jackpot winner in the EuroMillions game itself, one player won a prize of £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number XDP745634 and over 1.64 million players won EuroMillions consolation prizes.
Three tickets (including one purchased in the UK) matched the five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Star numbers to win a second-tier prize of £260,001 each. Another eight tickets (two belonging to UK players) won £32,599 each for matching five main numbers only. There were 34 winning tickets at the fourth-tier prize level, and each of those won £3,823 for matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
Players who like to include one or more ‘overdue numbers’ on their EuroMillions virtual play slips will be interested to note that the most overdue main numbers right now are 35, 32, 11, 29 and 47, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 03 and 09. Whether any of those numbers will be drawn in the £28 million double rollover jackpot game this Friday remains to be seen.
Before we get to that game there is a Lotto jackpot of around £2.2 million to play for on Wednesday 18 February. One ticket won the Lotto jackpot outright on Saturday 11 February by matching all six main numbers (01, 23, 24, 31, 45 and 49) so it will be interesting to see if the jackpot proves to be just as accommodating this time around.
