Quintuple EuroMillions Rollover
EuroMillions players won’t be playing for a triple or even a quadruple rollover jackpot this Friday, but for a quintuple rollover fortune that is estimated to be worth a staggering £54 million! EuroMillions often boasts large jackpots and that makes it easy to take such massive sums for granted, but to put it into perspective, £54 million would be enough to give you £2.7 million a year in interest alone if invested at 5%. You could then spend every penny of that each year (it works out at around £51,780 per week) and you still wouldn’t need to touch the jackpot win itself!
The prospect of winning such a vast sum of cash should improve the mood of players who didn’t get the outcome they wanted in the previous game. The EuroMillions results for Tuesday 16 October were 10, 32, 40, 41 and 49, with the numbers 02 and 08 appearing as the Lucky Stars for the second draw in a row. Stats fans may also be interested to note that the number 08 has now been a Lucky Star number in four of the last five draws, whilst the number 02 has been a Lucky Star three times in the same period.
There were three tickets that matched all five of the main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win a second-tier prize of £294,686 each, and we are delighted to report that all three of those tickets were bought right here in the UK. 12 tickets matched five main numbers only to win £24,557 each and 57 other tickets won £2,584 each by matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
The total number of tickets that won a EuroMillions prize of any kind on Tuesday night was 1,751,682. As usual, one ticket purchased in the UK won its owner a prize of £1,000,000 by matching the Millionaire Raffle number, and the winning number this time was GMT002729.
With a quintuple EuroMillions rollover jackpot of £54 million up for grabs in the next game this Friday, it is almost certain that even more tickets will be purchased and even more prizes won. Will you be one of the lucky winners? Buy your tickets online here today and you just might win the jackpot itself!
Also be sure to remember that the first ever Health Lottery Win Wednesdays draw takes place tonight!
