EuroMillions Jackpot Surpasses the £100 Million Mark
The EuroMillions jackpot for Friday’s draw has surpassed the £100 million mark after last night’s results revealed no top tier winners. The jackpot, which is the culmination of 11 consecutive draws without a top prize winner, is now the largest EuroMillions jackpot seen for nearly a year.
Last night’s results showed that nine ticket holders, including two from the UK, narrowly missed securing the jackpot by just one number. The nine players in the second prize tier matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star but missed out on a second Lucky Star which would have landed them the jackpot. However, these ticket holders were each rewarded with a £138,484 second tier prize.
Following these winners were 14 ticket holders who matched all five main numbers to win £29,675 each and 61 players who walked away with £3,405 each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. The total prize money won by UK ticket holders in last night’s draw came to £4.5 million with an additional £1 million being awarded to the UK ticket holder who correctly matched the Millionaire Raffle code LKB074440.
As there is now an 11 times rollover jackpot of £109 million to play for in Friday’s draw, demand for tickets will be high so we advise players plan ahead and purchase their tickets early to avoid the last-minute rush. Tickets can be purchased online through the Lottery Tickets tab or in person from an authorised retailer.
