Luxembourg Wins Second Jackpot
Luxembourg may be one of the smallest nations in Europe, with an area of just 2,586 square kilometres, but it certainly stood out on the map last Friday when one ticket purchased there succeeded in matching all seven numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game. That gave the country its second win since the game began, with the first having been landed in September 2013. The jackpot on that occasion was worth €65,793,284, and this time the prize weighed in at just under half that sum, at €31,666,941.
The EuroMillions results that enabled Luxembourg to double its tally of jackpot wins on Friday 9 January were 06, 21, 24, 32 and 45, and the Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 11. Players in all other participating countries had to settle for a consolation prize, and there were over 2.37 million such prizes landed in total.
Five tickets matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a second tier prize of £220,515 each, and one of those tickets had been purchased by a player in the UK. There were 10 tickets that matched five main numbers only to secure a third tier prize of £36,752 each, and another 39 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £4,711 each. All other winning tickets landed smaller prizes, but a separate prize of £1 million was also won by the UK ticket bearing the Millionaire Maker code HJB814065.
Congratulations to everyone who won a EuroMillions prize on Friday night, and especially to the lucky jackpot winner in Luxembourg. Now that the first jackpot of the year has been landed, players in other EuroMillions nations will be keen to take down the second. The most overdue main numbers are unchanged as we head towards the next game, so look out for 43, 16, 11, 34 and 35, as well as the most overdue Lucky Star numbers, which are 07 and 09.
