Tuesday Jackpot Eludes Players
The jackpot on offer in the EuroMillions game on Tuesday 4 March eluded players everywhere, so they will have to wait until the £80 million Superdraw game this Friday for their next chance to win big. The main numbers drawn in the EuroMillions game last night were 03, 05, 22, 27 and 44, and the Lucky Star numbers were 01 and 06. With no jackpot success, the biggest winner in the UK was the player who won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Raffle number CXW781222.
There was one ticket that matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to secure a second tier prize, and that ticket was purchased outside the UK so the prize of €1,000,384 can be quoted in euros only. Eight tickets matched the five main numbers to win £29,043 each, and we are delighted to report that five of those tickets had been purchased by UK players.
A fourth tier prize of £3,319 went to each of 35 tickets that matched four main numbers and both of the Lucky Stars, and more than 1.83 million prizes were landed at the lower levels by tickets matching fewer numbers. The total value of prize money won by players in the UK (not including the Millionaire Raffle prize) was £1,761,465.
Lottery players can now start thinking about securing their entries for the £80 million Superdraw this Friday. Those of you who want to include one or more overdue numbers should consider the main numbers 09, 14, 40, 07 and 50, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 03 and 11. If you prefer following the most common numbers, the main numbers to watch out for are 50, 04, 19, 44 and 11, and the most common Lucky Stars are 05 and 02.
As always, we have the midweek Lotto game to enjoy before we get to the next EuroMillions draw, and tonight the jackpot is expected to be worth around £2.2 million. Visit this page to buy your tickets online and remember to let us know if you win big!
