EuroMillions Jackpot Won in the UK for Second Straight Draw
Updated: Monday 1st June 2020
The EuroMillions jackpot was won for the second consecutive draw on Friday night, as another UK player became a multimillionaire. The top prize for the latest draw was worth more than £15 million.
In the previous draw on Tuesday, a ticket holder from the UK shared a £33 million jackpot with someone from France. On Friday, a lucky UK participant banked the full £15,294,900 after matching all the winning EuroMillions numbers.
The winning numbers on Friday 29th May were 4, 8, 11, 19 and 46, plus Lucky Stars 4 and 8. There were more than 465,000 other players from the UK who snapped up prizes, ranging from £2.30 for matching two numbers to £74,131 in the Match 5 + 1 Lucky Star category.

“It’s great news for a UK ticket holder who has scooped tonight’s £15.2 million EuroMillions jackpot,” said Andy Carter, the National Lottery’s Senior Winners’ Advisor. “This winner follows hot on the heels of Tuesday’s UK jackpot winner who won a massive £16.5 million – which is still waiting to be claimed.”
All winners need to come forward within 180 days of the draw taking place. When the jackpot winner claims their prize, they will also have to decide whether to go public or stay anonymous.
The UK has now had four jackpot winners this year, and they have all come since the middle of March. The only winner to go public so far in 2020 has been Ryan Hoyle, a joiner from Rochdale who landed £58 million on Friday 17th April.
As well as having two jackpot winners last week, there was more good news for UK players when it was announced that the rules on entering draws in advance had returned to normal.
A temporary limit had been in place during the peak of the coronavirus crisis, with players only allowed to enter a maximum of two draws due to uncertainty over whether the schedule would be affected. However, with restrictions now easing across Europe, it is possible to play in advance for up to four weeks again.
You can now set your sights on trying to become the next big winner in Tuesday night’s draw, when the jackpot will stand at £15 million. Check the EuroMillions results straight afterwards to discover whether the UK has made it three jackpot wins in a row.Published: Monday 1st June 2020
