Friday EuroMillions Offers €100 Million!
Lottery players who want a reason to be cheerful at the start of this brand new week need look no further than the EuroMillions game. Not only will you have a rollover jackpot of around £18 million to play for this Tuesday 4 June, you will also have the chance to win a special jackpot of €100 million on Friday 7 June. Throw in a couple of chances to win £1 million in each of the Millionaire Raffle games scheduled for those same days, as well as a Wednesday Lotto jackpot of £2 million, and the first week of June should be a cracker!
The EuroMillions game last Friday 31 May didn’t give anyone a jackpot win, but one player landed a life-changing prize of €1,779,902 (the ticket was purchased outside the UK) by matching all five main numbers (27, 28, 29, 34 and 43) plus one Lucky Star (05 or 10). Ten tickets, half of which had been bought by players in the UK, matched five main numbers only to win £39,955 each at the third tier. There were more than 2.7 million prizes won overall, and the total amount of prize money going to winners in the UK was £4,586,768.
Whilst the EuroMillions jackpot didn’t make any UK player a millionaire on Friday, the Millionaire Raffle game was on hand to do just that, and it did so a dozen times over! One ticket matched the number JRG437445 to win a very special prize of £1 million each and every month for a whole year, giving the winning player a total prize value of £12 million.
The Lotto game on Saturday 1 June helped to extend the celebratory atmosphere when it delivered a jackpot win to two lucky players. The winning tickets matched the numbers 11, 13, 24, 32, 34 and 47, and the jackpot was worth £4,042,758, which means that each winner is now £2,021,379 richer than they were beforehand. Nine tickets won £138,214 each by matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball, which was 09, and more than 439,000 tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers.
The Health Lottery draw was broadcast on Channel 5 less than a couple of hours after the Saturday Lotto draw was shown live on BBC One. The Health Lottery results were 02, 09, 29, 35 and 43, and the Bonus Ball was 30. No player won the £100,000 top prize, but more than 9,900 consolation prizes were secured at the lower levels.
All of which brings us back to the week ahead. We are of course extremely keen to see how players fare with the €100 million jackpot in the EuroMillions game this Friday, but the £18 million that is up for grabs in the Tuesday EuroMillions draw isn’t to be sniffed at either. Head this way to buy your tickets online and good luck with your numbers!
