Players Pursue Rollover Riches
Updated: Monday 8th February 2016
EuroMillions players who aspire to get rich quick will have a particularly good opportunity to make their dream come true this week, because the Tuesday draw will offer a rollover jackpot with an estimated value of £16 million. That fact obviously means that no ticket won the top prize last Friday night, but there were still some massive prizes landed, and a few of them were big enough to be considered positively life-changing for the lucky winners concerned.
The EuroMillions results on Friday 5 February were 03, 27, 32, 41 and 46, along with the Lucky Star numbers 04 and 08, and the jackpot which eluded players everywhere had a final value of £11.54 million. As is often the case when the jackpot rolls over, the biggest winners in the main game were found at the second tier, and the latest draw saw two tickets – one of which had been purchased right here in the UK – match all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £576,435 each.
There were eight tickets that matched all five main numbers without either of the Lucky Stars to win £48,036 each, and another 60 entries landed each of their owners a fourth tier prize worth £3,202 by matching four main numbers plus both Lucky Stars. The prizes at the lower levels were more modest, but more than 2.3 million tickets won a cash sum, and the players involved will no doubt be hoping to win even more in the next draw.
We have already said that one UK player won more than half a million pounds by landing a second tier prize in the main game, but an even bigger UK winner was created in the associated Millionaire Maker game. One ticket won its owner a cool £1 million by matching the winning code, which was RBH758372, so congratulations to the player concerned on becoming the country’s latest lottery millionaire.
The Lucky Star number 04 which appeared last Friday had been flagged up as one of the most overdue to appear, so the most overdue Lucky Star numbers for the next game are now 05 and 10. The most overdue main numbers remain unchanged, and are 42, 28, 13, 07 and 34.
Whatever numbers you choose to play in the EuroMillions game this Tuesday, good luck and be sure to let us know if you are fortunate enough to land yourself a life-changing prize!Published: Monday 8th February 2016
