EuroMillions Quad Rollover Jackpot
The EuroMillions lottery game will end this week with a bang – or at least the possibility of one – by offering a quadruple rollover jackpot worth an estimated £37 million. The top prize last night was worth just over £30 million, but no player was able to match all five main numbers (07, 16, 19, 22 and 33) as well as both Lucky Star numbers (02 and 05) that were required to win it. The last UK jackpot win took place more than three months ago, so players will be hoping that the dry spell ends soon, and for most fans of the game this Friday would be ideal!
There were two tickets (both purchased outside the UK) that matched all five main numbers as well as one of the Lucky Stars to win a second tier prize, and the sum landed by each of those was a hefty €513,136. Five tickets (three purchased in this country) won their owners £48,516 each by matching the five main numbers only, and at the fourth tier prize level there were 86 tickets that matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to secure the sum of £1,410 each.
More than 1.96 million smaller prizes were landed by tickets matching fewer numbers, and the total amount of cash that was won by players in the UK was £1,818,505. The winning Millionaire Raffle number on Tuesday 12 August was HQG351830, so the player with that same number on their ticket can now claim the life-changing sum of £1,000,000.
Players who would like to take our EuroMillions Statistics into consideration when playing for the quadruple rollover jackpot this Friday will be interested to hear that the most overdue main numbers right now are 17, 06, 14, 30 and 36, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 06 and 04. Those who prefer to follow the most common numbers should be considering the main numbers 50, 04, 44, 19 and 38, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 05 and 02.
We will have to wait and see whether or not any of those numbers help someone to win the £37 million jackpot on Friday, but in the meantime there is a midweek Lotto jackpot of around £2.1 million to play for.
