Go for Gold with EuroMillions
The eyes of the world were on the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games last Friday night, but the eyes of lottery players were also on the EuroMillions game. As things turned out, the EuroMillions jackpot rolled over for the eleventh time in a row, but 100 players in the UK each won a Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million. If you haven’t done so already, visit our EuroMillions Results page to find out if you were one of them. Don’t worry if you weren’t, because this Tuesday you have the chance to ‘go for gold’ by playing for the next EuroMillions jackpot of around £119 million!
The EuroMillions results on Friday 27 July were 14, 15, 21, 23 and 48, and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 10. We have already said that no player won the jackpot, but 16 tickets did come very close, matching all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win £200,340 each. 25 tickets won £42,739 each by matching the five main numbers only, and 141 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £3,789 each.
The total number of prizes won in the EuroMillions game on Friday was 7,281,775, which is a staggering figure that no doubt reflects the massive appeal of the special 100 Millionaire Raffle draw which marked the opening of the Olympic Games.
In the Lotto game on Saturday 28 July the winning numbers were 07, 10, 22, 29, 43 and 44, and the Bonus Ball was 26. The jackpot had a final value of £3,584,982 and three tickets matched all six main numbers required to win it, so each of those tickets is now worth £1,194,994. There were 20 tickets that matched five of the main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win £55,153 each, and another 596 tickets won £1,156 each by matching five main numbers only. As far as the last two prize tiers were concerned, a total of 612,951 tickets matched four or three main numbers to win £45 or £10 each, accordingly.
As always, we congratulate everyone who won a lottery prize last Friday or Saturday, and we wish you the best of luck in the massive £119 million EuroMillions game this Tuesday. Buy your lottery tickets here today and if your numbers come up you could soon be celebrating like an Olympic medal winner!
