EuroMillions Rolls a Seventh Time!
The EuroMillions jackpot rolled over for the seventh time in a row on Tuesday 22 May, which means there will now be a jackpot of around £70 million to play for this Friday. Multiple rollovers aren’t uncommon in the EuroMillions game, but an extended series of rollovers always attracts plenty of attention from players and the media alike, so you can expect to hear quite a bit about this ‘supersized’ jackpot as the next draw approaches. Before then, we have a Lotto double-rollover jackpot of around £10.1 million to play for tonight!
The EuroMillions results in the midweek game on Tuesday 22 May were 16, 31, 32, 37 and 41, and the Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 07. Three tickets matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £329,253 each, whilst ten tickets matched the five main numbers only to win £32,925 each. There were 33 winning tickets at the fourth-tier prize level and each of those won £4,989 by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. There were more than 1.92 million winning tickets in total, but the biggest lottery winner of all in the UK on Tuesday was the player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number GPC087739 to land a very nice prize of £1,000,000.
Those of you who keep an eye on our EuroMillions Statistics page may have noticed that two of the ‘most overdue’ numbers appeared on Tuesday, and those were the main number 16 and the Lucky Star number 07. That means the most overdue main numbers are now 42, 14, 07, 12 and 46, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 04 and 10.
We congratulate everyone who won a prize in the EuroMillions game last night and we look forward to seeing how UK players fare in the £70 million game this Friday. In the meantime, don’t forget to buy your lottery tickets for the £10.1 million double-rollover Lotto jackpot game this evening and good luck!
