Single Swiss Ticket Wins EuroMillions
A single lottery ticket purchased in Switzerland won the EuroMillions quintuple rollover jackpot last night, giving its owner a brand new fortune worth £52,357,563, which is more than enough to warrant opening a new Swiss bank account or two. This was the first EuroMillions jackpot win of the month, with just two more games to go, and the results that made it happen on Tuesday 19 February were 12, 15, 28, 30 and 44, along with the Lucky Star numbers 08 and 09. We congratulate the jackpot-winning player concerned and we are now looking forward to a new jackpot of around £12 million in the next game this Friday.
Nine tickets matched the five main numbers as well as one of the Lucky Star numbers to secure a second-tier prize worth £91,600 each, and we are pleased to report that one of those tickets was purchased by a player in the UK. 14 tickets won £19,628 each by matching five main numbers only, 51 tickets matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £2,694 each, and 1,238 tickets won £97 each by matching four main numbers and just one Lucky Star.
There were over 2.14 million prize-winning tickets across the eight lower consolation levels, and one ticket purchased in the UK won its owner a prize of £1,000,000 by matching the Millionaire Raffle number YFM003318. That isn’t as much as the quintuple rollover jackpot, but it should be enough to give the winning player quite a few holidays and maybe even allow him or her to quit working altogether.
With the EuroMillions game having finally delivered its top prize, players can set their sights on winning the new jackpot of around £12 million at the end of this week. The most overdue main numbers for the EuroMillions game are 46, 13, 33, 19 and 50, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 05 and 03, so maybe one or more of those will help someone to win big this Friday.
In the meantime, there is a brand new midweek Lotto jackpot worth around £2.1 million to be won this evening (Wednesday 20 February) and the most overdue numbers for that game are 01, 22, 19, 26, 33 and 04. Whatever numbers you choose to play, head this way to enter them online and this time tomorrow you could have millions of reasons to be very glad that you did!
