EuroMillions Double Rollover
Updated: Friday 18th September 2015
A EuroMillions double rollover means that the EuroMillions jackpot this Friday 5 June, 2009, will be worth around £37,000,000! We don’t know what you’ve got planned for the summer months this year, but we’re pretty confident that having an extra £37 million in your bank account wouldn’t be something you would turn down. If we’re right on that score, now is the time to start playing those lucky numbers!
Starting a brand new month with a double rollover always brightens things up, but when the month in question is June – a time when everyone is already beginning to enjoy the sunshine and look forward to summer holidays – the prospect of winning a massive amount of cash as well is just fantastic.
Although the EuroMillions jackpot proved elusive last Friday (29 May), four players did manage to match the five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Star numbers to win around £672,253 each. Not bad for a consolation prize! Another 13 players matched the five main numbers only to win around £58,699 each.
This Friday we will all be hoping to do even better. The odds of getting all of the lottery results required to win a EuroMillions jackpot are 1 in 76,275,360, but lottery players have beaten much longer odds to win less than £37 million, so we should all be optimistic and enjoy the prospect of winning. After all, that’s what playing lottery games is all about!
Because the EuroMillions game gives players a 1 in 24 chance of winning any prize at all, many player will use the double rollover as a good excuse to buy several tickets instead of just one. Lottery syndicates with eight or more members might even decide to splash out on a couple of dozen tickets (that equates to three tickets per member if there are eight members) in an effort to try and land a prize of some sort.
The great thing about lottery games, of course, is that every ticket has exactly the same chance of winning, so a ticket bought by an individual is just as likely to win the EuroMillions double rollover jackpot as one bought by a syndicate.
Will this Friday be the day that goes down in your personal history as the one that made you a multi-millionaire? Buy lottery tickets for the next EuroMillions draw and you will soon find out!Published: Monday 1st June 2009
