Friday Triple for EuroMillions
The EuroMillions game this Friday 21 October will offer a triple rollover jackpot of around £41 million after no ticket matched all five main numbers (18, 23, 37, 46 and 48) as well as both Lucky Star numbers (02 and 10) on Tuesday 18 October. This jackpot will come less than a week after the Lotto game delivered a triple rollover payout to five players last Saturday, and even if the same number of players were to win the top prize in the EuroMillions game this Friday, the £41 million that is on offer would still give each one a personal fortune of around £8.2 million.
Although no ticket won the EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday, two tickets (one of which was purchased in the UK) did win £407,335 each by matching the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars. Four tickets won a third tier prize of €97,368 each by matching five main numbers only, but there is no sterling equivalent because none of those tickets were owned by UK players. Fortunately, the Millionaire Raffle game made up for that by making one UK player £1 million richer, and it was the number HRM580326 which proved lucky this time around.
With a triple rollover jackpot of £41 million to play for this Friday, many players will choose to enter multiple tickets, and quite a few of those may want to take our EuroMillions statistics into consideration when making their selections. If you are one such player then you will be keen to note that the most overdue main numbers right now are 43, 41, 11, 03 and 24, whilst the most overdue Lucky Stars are 04 and 07.
As always, before we get to the EuroMillions game on Friday we have a midweek Lotto jackpot to play for. The jackpot for tonight (Wednesday 19 October) has an estimated value of around £2.2 million, so if you win that sum you probably won’t be too concerned about what happens with your EuroMillions entries. Buy your lottery tickets online for both games today and good luck!
