EuroMillions Double Rollover Jackpot
The advertised jackpot of £18 million rolled over in the EuroMillions draw last night, setting the stage for an even more attractive double rollover jackpot game this Friday. The EuroMillions results for Tuesday 22 October were 29, 33, 39, 41 and 44, along with the Lucky Star numbers 09 and 11, and the second prize tier was just as vacant as the first. Players will no doubt be hoping for better things in the next game, when the jackpot will be worth an estimated £26 million.
Given the fact that all of the main numbers drawn last night were quite high, we aren’t particularly surprised that there were no winners at either of the top two prize tiers. What did surprise us a little is that just two tickets matched the five main numbers only to win €655,757 each, and neither of them had been purchased in the UK. Fortunately, UK players did manage to secure a total of more than £1.57 million in lower level prizes.
The fourth tier saw 24 tickets match four main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers to win £4,547 each, and there were 503 tickets that won their owners £189 each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. There were more than 1.4 million prizes won overall, and the biggest winner in the UK was the player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number HKZ819144 to land a life-changing prize worth £1 million.
Although there was plenty of success among EuroMillions players in the UK last night, lottery fans will want to see even more luck this Friday. The double rollover jackpot is sure to attract plenty of casual players as well as the usual regulars, and if you fancy buying yourself an extra ticket or two in an effort to increase your chances you might want to look to our EuroMillions statistics for inspiration. The most overdue numbers right now are 22, 08, 34, 03 and 31, and the most overdue Lucky Stars are 01 and 08.
Don’t forget that there is also a midweek Lotto jackpot of around £2.5 million to play for tonight, and the most overdue numbers for that game are 32, 44, 43, 49, 23 and 28. The Lotto Raffle game will see 50 players win £20,000 each, regardless of what happens in the main draw, so visit this page to buy your lottery tickets online and good luck!
