EuroMillions Rolls into Summer Time
The clocks went forward in the early hours of Sunday morning, which means that the UK is now running on British Summer Time, and the first EuroMillions game since then will take place this Tuesday. The previous EuroMillions jackpot wasn’t won by any player, so the jackpot this Tuesday will be worth an estimated £53 million. Whilst many will be eager to pursue that prize, 10 players who will probably have other things on their minds are those that succeeded in matching a Millionaire Maker code last Friday.
Each of the tickets that matched a Millionaire Maker code in the last game won the life-changing sum of £1 million as well as a dream car, so well done to the lucky players concerned. For those of you who haven’t yet checked your tickets, the winning codes for the Mega Friday draw were as follows:
In the EuroMillions game itself, the main numbers drawn on Friday 27 March were 02, 30, 32, 39 and 44, and the Lucky Star numbers were 06 and 10. No player won all of the numbers that were required to take down the £47.6 million jackpot, but six tickets landed a second tier prize of £231,385 by matching five main numbers plus one Lucky Star, and one of those tickets had been purchased by a player right here in the UK.
There were 12 tickets that won their owners £38,564 each at the third tier by matching five main numbers only, and another 39 tickets matched four of the main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars to win £5,932 each. The total number of consolation prizes won was 2,623,166, and the combined amount of cash won by UK players in the main game was £5,324,345. Add in the £10,000,000 that was won in the Millionaire Maker game and we think you’ll agree that Friday night was quite a night!
Of course, there is plenty of potential for the EuroMillions game this Tuesday to be even more memorable, so if you fancy celebrating the arrive of British Summer Time by having a go at winning a jackpot worth around £53 million, this is your chance.
