Seventh Rollover for EuroMillions Jackpot
Updated: Wednesday 9th April 2014
The EuroMillions jackpot rolled over for the seventh draw in a row last night, giving lottery fans an estimated jackpot of around £73 million to play for this Friday 26 October. The coming EuroMillions draw will be the last one of the year before the clocks go back and the darker nights send the nation into winter mode, but anyone who is lucky enough to land the jackpot this Friday would be able to escape to the sun without delay. Actually, with a £73 million jackpot at stake an outright winner could buy their own tropical island!
We aren’t joking here – you can currently buy Bird Cay, a private island in the Bahamas, for the very reasonable sum of just £7.69 million. That would give you 250 acres to enjoy, with 4.75 miles of coastline, white sandy beaches and more sunshine than you would know what to do with. If you’d prefer something a bit roomier, Great Hans Lollik in the US Virgin Islands offers 510 acres of undeveloped paradise for a shade over £19 million. If you do land the £73 million jackpot this Friday and can’t decide between the two, you could always buy both islands and split your time between them…
We will leave you to fantasise more about the private island possibilities in your own time, but right now we should probably update you on what happened in the EuroMillions game last night. The EuroMillions results for Tuesday 23 October were 01, 28, 35, 38 and 50, with the numbers 02 and 10 appearing as the Lucky Stars. The biggest winner in the UK didn’t need any of those numbers because he or she matched the Millionaire Raffle number JNR203014 instead to win a cool £1,000,000.
Four tickets (three of them purchased in the UK) matched all five main EuroMillions numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win £243,292 each, whilst another five tickets matched the five main numbers only to win £64,877 each. There were 47 winning tickets at the fourth-tier prize level and each of those won £3,450 by matching four main numbers as well as both Lucky Star numbers. The total number of EuroMillions prizes won on Tuesday was 2,054,802.
Congratulations to everyone who won a EuroMillions prize last night and good luck to everyone who has a go at winning the next jackpot of £73 million this Friday. Don’t forget that you could also win yourself multi-millionaire status in the Lotto game this evening because the jackpot is expected to be worth around £2.2 million.
