EuroMillions Double Rollover Jackpot
EuroMillions players with extravagant dreams will be pleased to hear that the next game this Tuesday 13 October will offer a double rollover jackpot worth an estimated £22 million. In addition, the associated Millionaire Maker game on the same evening is guaranteed to make one UK player £1 million richer even if the jackpot in the main game rolls over, so someone will wake up on Wednesday morning with a fortune at their fingertips, and it could be you!
The main numbers drawn in the previous game on Friday 9 October were 01, 40, 42, 43 and 47, and the Lucky Star numbers were 09 and 11. We have already established that the jackpot (which was worth £18 million) rolled over, but the good news is that one ticket matched all five main numbers plus one of the Lucky Star numbers to scoop a fantastic second tier prize worth £1,059,101. Even better, that ticket had been purchased by someone in the UK, so well done to the lucky player concerned.
There were six tickets that won £58,838 each at the third tier by matching the five main numbers only, and three of those entries had also been purchased in this country. Another 30 prizes of £5,883 were won at the fourth tier by tickets matching four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars, and more than 1.76 million smaller prizes were won across the lower tiers. One UK player won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Maker code BMG048099, and that brought the total amount of prize money landed by UK participants to £5,609,539.
The odds of a single entry winning any prize at all in the EuroMillions game are around 1 in 13, which is quite impressive, but players can improve their chances of winning even further by entering multiple lines of numbers. For players who want to include one or more of the most overdue numbers on their entries, the main numbers to consider are 25, 38, 24, 28 and 41, whilst the most overdue Lucky Stars are 06 and 04.

However you choose your numbers, be sure to buy your tickets early to avoid any last-minute rush, enjoy the game on Tuesday and we wish you the best of luck with landing the double rollover jackpot!Published: Monday 12th October 2015
