Sixth Rollover for EuroMillions Game
The EuroMillions game on Tuesday 10 July resulted in a sixth consecutive jackpot rollover after no player was able to match all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars. For those of you who haven’t yet checked your tickets, the five main numbers were 01, 03, 16, 24 and 37, and the Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 08. Also remember to check your Millionaire Raffle numbers, because if one of them happens to be XVX189298 you are £1,000,000 better off than you were this time yesterday. As always, anyone who has won a EuroMillions prize of any size is advised to claim it as soon as possible.
Four tickets came extremely close to matching the jackpot, matching the five main numbers as well as one of the two Lucky Stars. Each of those tickets won a consolation prize of £299,765, which isn’t in the same league as the jackpot (which had a final value of £48,445,181) but should be enough to have a seriously positive impact on the lives of the winners involved.
10 tickets matched the five main EuroMillions numbers without either Lucky Star to win £29,976 each and 41 tickets won £3,656 each by matching four of the main numbers as well as both Lucky Stars. More than 2 million other tickets won smaller prizes (ranging from £2.90 to £148.80) by matching fewer numbers.
As you can imagine, excitement is already building for the next EuroMillions game this Friday 13 July, where the jackpot will be worth around £59 million. Friday 13 is often viewed as a potentially unlucky day by people who take superstitions seriously, but there have been some massive jackpots landed on Friday 13 in the past so the coming EuroMillions jackpot might well be the next one to prove such superstitions groundless.
Of course, before we get to the EuroMillions game on Friday we first have a midweek Lotto jackpot of around £2.2 million to play for. Buy your lottery tickets online early to avoid any last-minute rush and good luck with your entries!
