EuroMillions Independence Day
This Friday 4 July is Independence Day in the USA, but here in Europe lottery players will be hoping to celebrate independence of the financial kind by matching all seven of the numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game. The first draw of the month, which took place last night, saw the jackpot roll over for the third time in a row. The main EuroMillions numbers drawn on Tuesday 1 July were 18, 22, 25, 27 and 39, and the Lucky Star numbers were 05 and 10. The top prize was worth £25.3 million, so the triple rollover jackpot this Friday will be worth around £33 million.
Three tickets matched all five of the main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a second tier prize worth £251,828 each, and we are delighted to confirm that two of those tickets had been purchased right here in the UK. Another seven tickets – four of which had been bought by UK players – managed to win £35,975 each by matching the five main numbers only.
There were 42 winning tickets at the fourth tier prize level, and each of those won £2,997 by matching four main numbers as well as both of the Lucky Star numbers. The total number of prizes won in the main game was 1,779,839, and UK players collectively won £2,529,955. The Millionaire Raffle number SLZ967275 created one additional winner of £1,000,000.
The next EuroMillions game this Friday will undoubtedly attract plenty of attention from aspiring multi-millionaires, but UK lottery fans can also have a go at winning the home-grown sum of around £2.1 million in the midweek Lotto game. For those of you who like to follow our Lottery Statistics, the most overdue Lotto numbers right now are 01, 38, 20, 02, 46 and 41, so good luck if you decide to include one or more of those when you buy your tickets.
