Lucky Seven for EuroMillions Players?
The EuroMillions jackpot rolled over for the sixth time in a row last Friday, setting the stage for an even more exciting game this Tuesday. The jackpot is expected to be worth around £53 million, and players will be hoping that the seventh draw since the previous win at the highest level will prove lucky, with UK fans of the game keen to score their first jackpot success since the beginning of May. For those of you who haven't yet checked your tickets, the EuroMillions results on Friday 11 July were 05, 22, 35, 38 and 49, with the numbers 04 and 07 featuring as the Lucky Stars.
Six tickets matched all five of the main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win a second tier prize of €269,389 each, but none of those tickets had been purchased by players in the UK. There were 12 tickets that won £31,957 each by matching five main numbers only, and another 53 tickets matched four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars to win £3,617 each. Over 2.56 million prizes were won in total, and the overall sum won by UK players exceeded £3 million. Another £1 million was won by the player who matched the Millionaire Raffle number QLN724892.
The Lotto results on Saturday 12 July were 03, 19, 23, 28, 37 and 43, with the number 34 appearing as the Bonus Ball. A single ticket matched all six main numbers to win a jackpot worth £3,574,539, and six other tickets won £47,552 each by matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball. There were 371 tickets that landed a prize of £652 each by matching five main numbers only, and over 314,000 tickets matched four or three main numbers to win £73 or £25 each, respectively. The Lotto Raffle game created 50 winners of £20,000 each, and the next Lotto jackpot this Wednesday 16 July is expected to be worth around £2.1 million.
Fans of the Health Lottery game had the usual top prize of £100,000 to play for on Saturday, but no ticket was able to match all five main numbers. Those numbers were 08, 11, 14, 18 and 37, and the Bonus Ball number was 46. Although the top prize wasn't landed, more than 14,000 consolation prizes were, so well done to all concerned and better luck next time.
With the weekend lottery games having been wrapped up for another week, the big question on everyone's lips is whether or not the EuroMillions jackpot will be landed at the seventh time of asking this Tuesday. We will know the answer to that question soon enough, so click here to give yourself a chance of winning the £53 million jackpot and good luck with your numbers!
