EuroMillions Jackpot Snowballs to Friday
The beginning of this week saw the arrival of 2013’s first ‘Great British Freeze’, and whilst lottery players might have been hoping for a wintry shower of wealth in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 15 January, the jackpot wasn’t landed by anyone. That means the EuroMillions jackpot has made like a snowball and rolled over to the next game this Friday, when it is estimated to be worth around £21 million. The EuroMillions results which enabled us to crack that particular (and arguably bad) pun were 22, 38, 40, 42 and 47, along with Lucky Stars 01 and 11.
In stark contrast to the numbers drawn in the Lotto game last Saturday, the numbers that appeared in last night’s EuroMillions game were mostly from the higher end of the range, and that left most ‘days of the month’ players out in the cold. Even at the second-tier level there was only one ticket that managed to match all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars, giving its fortunate owner a very handsome consolation prize of €1,041,435.
Although that second-tier EuroMillions prize was won outside the UK, four of eight winning tickets at the third-tier had been bought in this country, and those tickets matched five main numbers only to win £30,199 each. 32 tickets (11 purchased in the UK) matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £3,774 each, whilst 551 tickets won £191 each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star.
The total number of prizes won in the midweek EuroMillions game was 1,471,262, with players in the UK sharing over £2.1 million in prize money. In addition, a prize of £1 million was awarded to another UK player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number MBT138027.
For players who enjoy following our EuroMillions statistics, the most overdue main numbers as we approach the next game are 46, 12, 13, 39 and 34, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 02. Will any of those numbers help someone to win the £21 million jackpot this Friday or will the top prize roll once again? We’ll just have to wait and see!
Point your snow shoes in this direction to buy your tickets for the Friday EuroMillions game, and also for the midweek Lotto game tonight, where the jackpot has an estimated value of £2.1 million. Stay safe in the snow and good luck with your entries!
