Friday EuroMillions Excitement Builds!
Updated: Thursday 3rd September 2015
Excitement is building amongst lottery players as the end of the week approaches and so does the Friday EuroMillions game, where participants can try and win a rollover jackpot worth an estimated £17 million. Three out of the six previous EuroMillions draws have surrendered their jackpots, so participants will be hoping that someone will succeed again this time around. The good news for UK players is that one ticket is certain to win £1 million in the Millionaire Maker game whatever happens, so someone is sure to be waking up on Saturday morning with a new-found sense of financial freedom, and it could be you!
A single ticket won the top prize of £4,993,453 in the midweek Lotto game this week. The Lotto results for Wednesday 2 September were 02, 09, 27, 29, 33 and 40, and the number 46 was drawn as the Bonus Ball. Another single ticket matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win a second tier prize worth £165,812.
There were 169 tickets that won their owners a third tier prize of £833 each by matching five main numbers only, and another 8,913 tickets won £83 each by matching four main numbers. The smallest prize of £25 went to each of 160,844 entries that matched three main numbers, and there were 50 Lotto Raffle winners of £20,000 each.
There will now be a brand new jackpot worth an estimated £3.9 million in the next game on Saturday. One of the most overdue numbers (09) and two of the most common numbers (33 and 40) were drawn on Wednesday, which was encouraging to see. The most overdue numbers are now 11, 34, 37, 13, 35 and 32, whilst the most common numbers continue to be 23, 40, 33, 38, 30 and 44.
For players who want to take inspiration from our EuroMillions Statistics page for the £17 million rollover game this Friday, the most overdue main numbers are currently 13, 25, 26, 17 and 38, whilst the most overdue Lucky Stars are 11 and 03. The most common main numbers are 50, 44, 04, 19 and 38, and the most common Lucky Stars are 03 and 08.
Of course, every set of numbers entered for any draw-based lottery game has exactly the same chance of winning, so even a single entry of random selections could be enough to help you win big. However you choose your numbers, buy your tickets early to avoid the inevitable last-minute rush, enjoy the games and good luck!Published: Thursday 3rd September 2015
