Single UK Ticket Wins EuroMillions!
Updated: Wednesday 13th April 2016
A series of six consecutive EuroMillions rollovers came to an end last night when one ticket that had been purchased in the UK won the jackpot. The EuroMillions results which led to this latest UK success on Tuesday 12 April were 01, 05, 09, 22 and 38, along with the Lucky Star numbers 02 and 10, and the final value of the jackpot was £51,818,874. It is not yet known who the lucky winner is, but if they are already aware of their win it is a fair bet that they will soon be making their claim and laughing all the way to the bank – maybe even from the back seat of a limo!
The UK has now won 58 jackpot prizes since the game began, and is currently the joint-third luckiest country (tied with Portugal) of the nine nations that participate. The outright leader is France, with 78 jackpot wins, and then Spain, with 76 jackpot wins, and British players will no doubt be hoping to take the UK into clear third place before long.
There were four tickets that won a second tier prize of £207,523 each by matching all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars, and one of those tickets had also been purchased in this country. A dozen tickets matched the five main numbers only to win £23,058 each at the third tier, and 37 entries won £3,739 each by matching four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars.
There were more than 2.04 million prizes won in total, and UK players took over 462,000 of those, giving the nation a combined pay-out of more than £54.12 million. In addition, another £1 million was won by the player who matched the code PHK986965 in the Millionaire Maker game.
EuroMillions lottery fans can now look forward to playing for a brand new jackpot worth around £11 million in the next game this Friday 15 April. In the meantime, there is a rollover jackpot of around £6.7 million for players to pursue in the midweek Lotto game, which takes place this evening.
