Tuesday EuroMillions Jackpot Rolls Again
Updated: Thursday 10th April 2014
The Tuesday EuroMillions jackpot rolled over last night because none of the lines entered for the game succeeded in matching all five main numbers as well as both Lucky Star numbers. This was the 15th consecutive Tuesday game that has resulted in a jackpot rollover, and the last time that anyone managed to win the top prize on a Tuesday was on 19 June. Fortunately, one EuroMillions player in the UK wins £1 million every time the game takes place thanks to the Millionaire Raffle draw, and the winning raffle number last night was BLM670766.
The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game itself on Tuesday 2 October were 04, 16, 21, 36 and 42, and the Lucky Star numbers were 07 and 08. Quite often we can report that one or more UK players were able to pick up a second-tier prize by matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star, but this time there were no UK winners at that level even though six tickets achieved the feat to win €180,307 each. Seven tickets matched five main numbers only to win £36,599 each, and we are pleased to say that one of those tickets did belong to a UK player.
47 tickets won £2,725 each by matching four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars, and another 982 tickets matched four main numbers and one Lucky Star to win a fifth-tier prize of £114 each. The total number of prizes won on Tuesday was 1,705,092.
Having another Tuesday EuroMillions draw end with a rollover means that we have another bumper jackpot to look forward to in the Friday EuroMillions game, and the jackpot for the draw this Friday 5 October is estimated at £21 million. For anyone who fancies playing one or more overdue numbers, the main numbers to look out for are 09, 47, 32, 40 and 08, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 03 and 05.
Before we get to the Friday EuroMillions draw, we also have a midweek Lotto jackpot of around £2.2 million to pursue this evening (Wednesday 3 October). Buy tickets for both games today and if you don’t win in one of them you just might win in the other. You could even land yourself a prize in both games! Enjoy the draws and good luck!
