EuroMillions Luck of the Irish?
This Tuesday 17 March is St Patrick’s Day, which is of course a celebration of all things Irish that usually involves plenty of green face paint and copious amounts of Guinness. It also happens to be the day on which the first EuroMillions game of the week takes place, and many lottery players will be wondering if that might lead to someone enjoying enough ‘luck of the Irish’ to help them win the jackpot. The top prize has rolled over in each of the last two draws, so the jackpot this time will be worth an estimated £24 million.
The EuroMillions results on Friday 13 March were 04, 05, 18, 22 and 23, and the Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 03. Although no player was able to win the jackpot on this occasion, eight participants succeeded in winning a second tier prize of £178,147 each by matching all five of the main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers. One of those tickets had been purchased right here in the UK, so a big well done to the lucky player concerned.
There were 12 tickets that matched five main numbers only to win £39,588 each, and another 88 tickets matched four main numbers plus both Lucky Stars to win £2,699 each. The total number of consolation prizes won exceeded 3.4 million, and the total amount of prize money won by tickets purchased in the UK was £3,612,099. Another £1,000,000 was won in the Millionaire Maker game by the UK player who matched the code number FPY442445.
Lottery players who want to include one or more of the most overdue numbers on their tickets for the next EuroMillions game this Tuesday should be considering the main numbers 16, 35, 36, 48 and 01, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 05 and 06. For those of you who prefer to follow the most common numbers, the main numbers to look out for are 50, 04, 38, 44 and 25, and the most common Lucky Stars are 03 and 05.
We don’t know if any of those numbers will help anyone to win the double rollover jackpot this Tuesday, or even whether the aforementioned ‘luck of the Irish’ will be readily apparent, but we’ll soon find out. Head this way to buy your tickets online, good luck with your numbers and have a happy St Patrick’s Day!
