EuroMillions Rolls to Month End
The penultimate EuroMillions game of the month took place last night, and five previous rollovers helped the jackpot to reach the dizzy heights of £49.4 million. The main numbers drawn on Tuesday 28 January were 18, 20, 23, 42 and 48, whilst the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 09, and the bad news is that no player was able to match all of those numbers to prevent the jackpot rolling on to the month’s end. That means the EuroMillions jackpot will be worth around £58 million for the final draw of January this Friday.
There were more than 1.9 million tickets that won a consolation prize of some kind last night, and five of them matched all five main numbers as well as one Lucky Star number to win a second tier prize worth £169,309. One of those tickets had been purchased in the UK, as had one of five tickets that landed a prize of £56,436 each at the third tier by matching the five main numbers only.
The fourth tier saw 31 tickets match four of the main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £4,551 each, whilst 710 tickets won £173 each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. All other winning tickets in the main game won smaller prizes by matching four main numbers or fewer, and the lucky Millionaire Raffle number last night – which was worth £1 million to the owner of the matching ticket – was QVG792053.
Whilst the Tuesday night EuroMillions game made plenty of people at least a little wealthier than they were beforehand (and several players are now a lot wealthier, especially if you include the Millionaire Raffle winner!) it is only natural that everyone will be trying to land the jackpot in the next draw. Only one jackpot has been won so far this year, so it would definitely be nice to see someone take a second one down before we hit February.
Before we get to that game, we also have a midweek Lotto game to enjoy this evening. The Lotto jackpot will be worth around £2.2 million and if you fancy including one or more of the most overdue numbers on your tickets you should be looking at 43, 20, 47, 03, 39 and 05.
