Quintuple Jackpot for Lottery Players!
Updated: Tuesday 3rd May 2016
Lottery players will have the chance to win a EuroMillions quintuple rollover jackpot worth around £42 million this Tuesday, thanks to no ticket winning the top prize in the previous game. In the meantime, five UK players are already celebrating after each winning £1 million and a luxury holiday in the Mega Friday Millionaire Maker game, and in the main EuroMillions game last Friday more than 2.55 million entries won consolation prizes worth up to six figures.
The main EuroMillions numbers drawn on Friday 29 April were 04, 05, 25, 28 and 43, and the numbers 06 and 11 were drawn as the Lucky Stars. Eight tickets matched all five of those main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win £138,694 each at the second tier, and one of those tickets had been purchased by a player in the UK.
There were another two UK tickets amongst seven that won £52,835 each by matching the five main numbers only, whilst the fourth tier saw 47 tickets match four main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars to win £3,934 each. The total number of prizes won in the main game by UK players was 692,882, and those prizes amounted to a total of £3,582,254.
As we said at the head of this news item, five players in the UK won a Mega Friday Millionaire Maker prize, and the winning codes were as follows:
We offer our congratulations to everyone who won a prize of any size on Friday night, but particularly to the five Mega Friday winners, who will soon be jetting off for the holiday of a lifetime at the Manta Resort on Pemba Island, Zanzibar. Thinking about how to put £1 million to good use is probably a lot of fun no matter where you do it, but being able to make such plans whilst staying at a luxury resort should be even more satisfying.
The good news for players who missed out on a life-changing win last Friday is that the quintuple rollover jackpot of £42 million this Tuesday is only seven numbers away, and one person who plays for that sum is guaranteed to win £1 million in the Millionaire Maker game. Buy your tickets early if you would like a chance to be the next big winner, and good luck!Published: Monday 2nd May 2016
