EuroMillions Sets New UK Record
A single EuroMillions lottery ticket purchased in the UK landed the rollover Mega Jackpot on Friday 8 October to set a brand new record for the biggest UK National Lottery jackpot win of all time. The jackpot was worth £113,019,926 and the five main numbers which proved so valuable for the UK winner were 09, 30, 35, 39 and 46, whilst the equally essential Lucky Star numbers were 06 and 08. The jackpot reached the level it did because the Mega Jackpot of £82 the previous Friday rolled over. Whether the new record-breaking winner is an individual or a lottery syndicate, we are sure that they now appreciate the previous rollover more than anyone else in the country!
Should the winner of the new record lottery jackpot win go public then we will obviously bring you details of who they are and what they intend to do with their fortune at the earliest opportunity. In the meantime, we ought to tell you about the other prizes that were won in the EuroMillions draw last Friday.
Nine players matched the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a second-tier prize of £521,015 each. Winning over half a million pounds for not landing the jackpot (or, more accurately, for missing out by just one Lucky Star) is a fairly good consolation in our opinion, and we’re guessing that those nine lottery winners will be celebrating almost as enthusiastically as the jackpot winner for quite some time.
19 players matched five main numbers but no Lucky Star numbers to win £70,037 each, and another 208 players matched four of the five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win £4,570 each. In total, over 3.55 million EuroMillions prizes were won last Friday, and that isn’t including the £1,000,000 win achieved by the UK player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number, which was PXV227093.
The next EuroMillions jackpot on Friday 15 October will be worth around £12 million, but before then there is a SuperEnlotto jackpot of £160,200,000 to play for on Tuesday 12 October and a midweek Lotto jackpot of £2,,400,000 to have a shot at on Wednesday 13 October.
