EuroMillions Jackpot Remains Elusive
The EuroMillions jackpot remained elusive in the midweek game on Tuesday 10 April, with no player matching all five main numbers (22, 25, 27, 36 and 37) as well as both Lucky Stars (05 and 09). The jackpot had a final value of £32,603,075, so the estimated value of the jackpot for the next game this Friday 13 April is £43 million. That’s a heck of a lot of cash no matter who you are, so if you keep your fingers crossed and your numbers come up, this Friday 13 might actually turn out to be the luckiest day of your life so far!
Half a dozen tickets matched the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £120,249 each, and five tickets matched five main numbers only to win a third-tier prize worth £48,099 each. It might surprise some readers that there was one more winner at the second tier than there was at the much easier third tier, but lottery games are unpredictable by their very nature, so things like that should be expected to happen from time to time.
46 EuroMillions tickets matched four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars to win a fourth-tier prize of £2,614 each, 542 tickets won £194 each by matching four main numbers plus one Lucky Star and there were 1,039 tickets that matched four main numbers only to win £101 each. All other consolation prize winners (more than 1.65 million of them) landed prizes of £37 each or less by matching even fewer numbers. The biggest win of all in the UK on Tuesday went to the EuroMillions player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number RKM088083 to pick up £1 million.
Quadruple rollover jackpots are always worth playing for because they give lottery fans the chance to win a much higher jackpot than usual for exactly the same outlay as in a regular jackpot game. Every line of numbers entered for the EuroMillions draw has just as much chance of winning the jackpot as any other, so it is possible for anyone who takes part in the game this Friday to wake up £43 million richer on Saturday morning. Buy your EuroMillions tickets online today and it just might be you!
