EuroMillions Jackpot Cap Reached!
Updated: Wednesday 22nd October 2014
On Monday we said that one more rollover in the EuroMillions lottery game would most likely take it into 'jackpot cap' territory, and this morning we can confirm that is exactly what has happened. No player was able to match all seven of the numbers drawn last night, so the jackpot in the next game this Friday 24 October will be worth the maximum possible €190 million, which at current exchange rates should equate to around £150 million. EuroMillions jackpots simply don't get any bigger than this, so if there was ever a time to treat yourself to an extra ticket or two, this is it!
The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 21 October were 20, 21, 27, 33 and 40, and the Lucky Star numbers were 03 and 10. There were eight tickets that matched all five of the main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers, and four of those had been purchased in the UK, giving each winner the impressive sum of £241,508.
There were 20 tickets that won a third tier prize of £32,201 each by matching five main numbers only, and another 92 tickets matched four main numbers and both of the Lucky Star numbers to secure a fourth tier prize of £3,500 each. The total number of prizes won last night exceeded 4.3 million, which is much higher than average for a Tuesday evening but perfectly understandable given the fact that the massive jackpot attracted higher than average levels of participation. The total value of cash prizes won by players in the UK was over £7.17 million, and that doesn't include the £1 million that was won by the UK ticket bearing the Millionaire Raffle number GYW290078.
Lottery players can now look forward to pursuing the fantastic jackpot of around £150 million this Friday, and if you intend to participate we would advise you to buy your tickets as early as possible to avoid the last-minute rush. You may also want to buy yourself a ticket or two for the midweek Lotto game which will be played this evening. The estimated Lotto jackpot is £2.1 million, and there will be 50 additional prizes of £20,000 each to be won in the Lotto Raffle game. Head this way to buy your tickets online and good luck!
