October EuroMillions Superdraw
A €100 million EuroMillions Superdraw will be taking place on Tuesday 4 October, 2011. Usually an official announcement about Superdraws isn’t made until much closer to the time, but in this age of Twitter, Facebook and other rapidly expanding social networks it makes sense for official sources to change their tactics and keep up with the rumour-mill. That said, if you happen to be a fan of Superdraw games (which guarantee the minimum jackpot size no matter what happens in the preceding draws) you will probably want to make a note of the date just mentioned in your diary or, even better, enter your numbers for several consecutive draws which include the Superdraw.
Entries for a Superdraw cost exactly the same as for a regular draw, so players who participate always get extremely good value for money. Of course, players can also get great value for money in non-Superdraw games. The next EuroMillions game this Friday 23 September will have a jackpot worth around £23 million because no player won the top prize in the previous draw on Tuesday. The lottery results for the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 20 September were 09, 19, 25, 36 and 38, with 07 and 11 appearing as the Lucky Stars.
Two players – neither of them in the UK – won €551,571 each by matching the five main numbers and one of the two Lucky Star numbers. Eight players – four in the UK – matched the five main numbers without any Lucky Stars to win £30,635 each. And those weren’t the only players who won thousands for their EuroMillions participation because 41 tickets picked up prizes of £2,988 each for matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
The total number of prizes won in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday exceeded 1.82 million, and that isn’t including the £1 million prize won by the Millionaire Raffle player who matched the number XNL886448.
Don’t forget that the Lotto jackpot tonight will be offering a double rollover jackpot of around £10 million, so if you haven’t bought your lottery tickets online for that game you will probably want to do that whilst buying your tickets for the EuroMillions game this Friday. When you have done that, be sure to mark Tuesday 4 October in your diary as the date of the next EuroMillions Superdraw and good luck!
