Double Rollover Decks December!
Updated: Monday 30th November 2015
Tomorrow is the first day of December, and whilst many people will be thinking about decking their halls with boughs of holly, the EuroMillions game will be decking the first game of the festive season with a double rollover jackpot worth around £22 million. The good news for UK participants is that one person is absolutely guaranteed to win a prize of £1 million in the Millionaire Maker draw on Tuesday, so Christmas is sure to come early for someone whatever happens in the main game.
Of course, Christmas has already come early for five players who got lucky in the Mega Friday Millionaire Maker game at the end of last week. Each player who matched a winning number landed a prize of £1 million as well as a Christmas to remember package that includes a trip to New York or Lapland, £10,000 in spending money and a stress-free Christmas lunch on the day itself. For those of you who haven’t yet checked your tickets, the five winning Millionaire Maker numbers were as follows:
The main EuroMillions results on Friday 27 November were 16, 29, 30, 37 and 50, with the numbers 06 and 08 drawn as the Lucky Stars. Whilst no player was able to win the jackpot itself, six tickets succeeded in matching all five main numbers plus one Lucky Star number to secure a second tier prize worth £216,587 each. A quartet of tickets matched five main numbers only to win £108,293 each at the third tier, and the fourth tier delivered 51 prizes of £4,246 each to those who matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
The total number of prizes won in the main EuroMillions game was 2,543,500, and the cash landed by players in the UK amounted to more than £4.5 million. Add to that the £5 million that was won in the Millionaire Maker game and it’s fair to say that the last Friday of November was one that many people will remember for quite some time!
Players will now be hoping to enjoy an early slice of festive luck in the first game of the month this Tuesday 1 December. Our EuroMillions Statistics page tells us that the most overdue main numbers right now are 24, 41, 05, 02 and 31, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 05 and 01, so do watch out for those and good luck with whatever selections you enter for yourself!Published: Monday 30th November 2015
