EuroMillions Jackpot Rolls to Friday
The EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday 3 September wasn’t won by any of the players who participated in the game, so the top prize of £12.7 million rolled over to the next game this Friday 6 September, when it is expected to be worth around £21 million. The EuroMillions results for the midweek game were 05, 09, 16, 18 and 42, with the numbers 07 and 09 appearing as the Lucky Stars. The Millionaire Raffle number, which gave one UK player a prize of £1 million, was QGK509937.
One of the best things about the EuroMillions game is that it has no fewer than a dozen consolation prize levels, and those lesser prizes really come into their own when the jackpot rolls over. Last night there were five tickets that won a second tier prize of £139,287 each by matching all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers, and we are pleased to report that two of those tickets had been purchased in the UK. There were no UK winners at the third tier level, but four tickets purchased elsewhere matched five main numbers only to win €84,949 each.
The fourth tier saw 59 tickets match four main numbers as well as both of the Lucky Stars to win £1,967 each, and the total number of prizes won in the Tuesday EuroMillions game was 1,810,282. The combined value of prize money landed by players in the UK (not including the Millionaire Raffle prize) was £1,999,817.
Lottery players will now be keen to have another go at winning themselves a EuroMillions jackpot on Friday. The most overdue main numbers right now are 46, 22, 08, 41 and 10, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 03 and 01. Whether any of those numbers help someone to land the £21 million that is up for grabs at the end of the week is something we won’t know until the game takes place.
You can buy tickets for the next EuroMillions game right here, and whilst you’re at it you might want to enter your numbers for the midweek Lotto game this evening. The jackpot is expected to be worth around £2 million, so be sure to purchase your tickets in plenty of time and good luck!
