EuroMillions Jackpot Hits £131 Million Ahead of Friday’s Draw
This Friday will see EuroMillions fans from across the continent playing for the eighth largest jackpot in the game’s history after the prize pot rose to an estimated £131 million. This comes after the final draw in May failed to produce a winner, meaning ticket holders were forced to watch on as the jackpot rolled over for a 14th straight draw.
The winning EuroMillions numbers were 7, 12, 27, 38 and 48, with 6 and 9 appearing as the Lucky Stars. Despite the top prize remaining untouched, over 2.7 million players still managed to land a prize, including two Brits who were amongst three lucky winners of a Match 5+1 fortune of £322,740. This is the fifth consecutive draw in which a duo of UK residents have gone within one number of scooping the game’s biggest reward.
The celebrations didn’t end there, as 17 players correctly matched all five main numbers to win £13,265, while 54 entrants collected £2,042 in the Match 4+2 prize tier. A further 2,775,242 ticket holders profited from the draw, with prizes ranging from £2.70 for matching two numbers to £92.90 for matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. For a complete prize breakdown, additional draw information and the winning codes for the latest UK Millionaire Maker draw, visit the EuroMillions Results page.
The collective attention of EuroMillions enthusiasts will now turn to this Friday’s draw, when a sensational nine-figure sum will be up for grabs. The prize pot, which is currently the second largest lottery prize in the world, has not been won since Tuesday 11th April, when a French family from Dijon picked up a colossal €83.3 million. Needless to say, it will be the goal of every player to end this current run of rollovers and write their names in the history books of the pan-European game.
So, if you would like to end the working week in style by landing a jackpot of £131 million, you can pick your numbers online or play via any authorised retailer across the UK. Best of luck!Published: Wednesday 31st May 2017
