EuroMillions Jackpot to Pass Milestone
The EuroMillions jackpot looks set to pass the €100 million milestone this Friday after no player proved able to match all five main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars. The estimated jackpot figure for the next draw is €104 million, which should equate to around £79 million if the top prize is landed by a player in the UK. EuroMillions fans have been waiting for a jackpot winner since the middle of December, so everyone is quite reasonably hoping that the first jackpot of 2016 won’t elude us for too much longer.
EuroMillions players on Tuesday 19 January saw the drawing of the main numbers 02, 30, 38, 43 and 46, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 02 and 07. There were two tickets that fell just one Lucky Star number short of success at the highest level, and each of those won a second tier prize worth £507,038. One of those tickets had been purchased in the UK, as had two of nine entries which won £37,558 at the third tier.
There were 36 tickets that picked up a fourth tier prize of £4,694 each by matching four main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars, and more than 1.94 million entries won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers. The total amount of cash won by players in the UK topped £3.2 million, and another £1 million was landed by the UK player who matched the Millionaire Maker code LYM835731.
The ninth consecutive rollover on Tuesday has set things up for a fantastic £79 million jackpot game this Friday 22 January, but before we get to that game we have a double rollover midweek Lotto draw to enjoy this evening. The Wednesday Lotto jackpot is expected to be worth around £9.9 million, and one player is guaranteed to win £1 million whatever happens thanks to the Lotto Millionaire Raffle game. As usual, 20 Lotto Raffle prizes of £20,000 each will also be won.
The most overdue Lotto numbers to watch out for this evening are 06, 33, 45, 05, 16 and 36, whilst the most common numbers are 23, 40, 38, 30, 33 and 44.
