EuroMillions Triple Rollover Tonight
A EuroMillions triple rollover jackpot that is estimated to be worth around £41 million will be the top prize in the final game of the month tonight (Friday 30 September). Every ticket purchased for the game will give its owner a 1 in 13 chance of winning a EuroMillions prize of some kind and, as one UK player discovered last Tuesday, the non-jackpot prizes can still be well worth winning. We are of course referring to the UK player who matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star number on Tuesday 27 September to win a second-tier prize worth £855,670.
This particular consolation prize was more substantial than usual because the UK ticket was the only one which qualified for a second-tier payout, so the winner didn’t have to share the prize pool with anyone else. Another UK player who did particularly well last Tuesday was the one who won £1,000,000 by matching the Millionaire Raffle number ZPG353173.
Anyone who buys a ticket for the EuroMillions game tonight will also have a chance of winning a Millionaire Raffle prize, a second-tier EuroMillions prize or any of the other consolation prizes that are available. The big difference tonight is that the jackpot should be worth around £10 million more than it was on Tuesday, which gives players even better value for money.
Although most people are familiar with the odds of winning a EuroMillions jackpot (around 1 in 116.5 millions) and the odds of winning any prize at all (around 1 in 13) far fewer will be aware that the odds of winning a second-tier prize are an impressive 1 in 6.4 million, or that the odds of winning a third-tier prize are 1 in 3.2 million. In other words, if you don’t win yourself the £41 million triple rollover jackpot tonight then all is not lost because you could still land yourself with the kind of prize that will make September 2011 well worth remembering!
Remember, all of the above is based on you buying just one line of numbers, so if you buy several lottery tickets online for the draw tonight your odds of winning will be even better. Think positive as you pick your numbers and good luck!
