French Lottery Ticket Wins EuroMillions
Updated: Wednesday 9th April 2014
One lottery ticket that had been purchased in France won the midweek EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday night, giving the owner a massive fortune worth €169,837,010, which equates to £136,124,363. The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 13 November were 11, 16, 21, 24 and 29, and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 06. With the jackpot going to a French ticket, the best that anyone could do in the UK was match the Millionaire Raffle number, and one ticket matched the number QSD960094 to win £1 million in time for the weekend.
There were 21 tickets that matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a second-tier prize of £85,914 each, and 25 tickets won £24,056 each by matching the five main numbers only. 174 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £1,728 each, and the total number of prizes won was 4,557,314, which is a staggering total for a Tuesday game.
The next EuroMillions jackpot this Friday 16 November will be worth around £11 million, and with a fresh start coming up it might be a good time to familiarise yourself with the numbers that are currently highlighted as being most overdue to make an appearance. The main numbers to look out for are 46, 45, 12, 13 and 15, and the most overdue Lucky Stars are 07 and 08.
In other lottery news, the Thunderball game created a top prize winner last Saturday night because one ticket matched the five main numbers (12, 21, 28, 32 and 38) as well as the Thunderball (12) to scoop £500,000. Five tickets matched the five main numbers without the Thunderball to win £5,000 each and the total number of winners was 215,892. It is possible to win a Thunderball prize by matching nothing more than the Thunderball itself, and 90,998 players did exactly that to win £3 each.
What can anyone do with just £3, you may wonder? Well, it’s more than enough to enter the next EuroMillions game this Friday or the midweek Lotto game this evening. Tonight’s Lotto jackpot will be worth around £6.5 million thanks to a rollover in the previous draw on Saturday, so click here to buy your tickets online (you will probably want to do it early to avoid missing the deadline) and good luck!
