Two Players Share EuroMillions Jackpot
As we reported previously, the EuroMillions game delivered a triple-rollover jackpot win to a single player in France at the end of last week, so the jackpot for last night’s game was worth €15 million, which equated to £12,862,500. France has dominated the EuroMillions game all month long, so players in other participating nations – the UK included – were very keen to try and redress the balance. The UK missed the top prize on this occasion, and so did France, but the jackpot was still landed by two tickets that had been purchased in Belgium and Portugal.
The EuroMillions results for Tuesday 29 January were 09, 16, 26, 36 and 39, along with the Lucky Star numbers 02 and 06. Although the jackpot wasn’t particularly kind to British players, one of ten winning tickets at the second-tier prize level had been purchased in the UK, giving its owner £66,534 for matching all five main numbers as well as one Lucky Star number.
Six tickets matched five main numbers only to win £36,963 each, and two of those tickets were entered by UK players. There were 77 tickets that matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £1,440 each and 867 tickets won £111 each by matching four main numbers and one Lucky Star. There were over 1.59 million prizes won overall, and the biggest British winner on the night (to the tune of £1 million, no less) was the owner of the ticket that matched the Millionaire Raffle number RCT102153.
It has been quite a long time since two EuroMillions jackpots were won in back-to-back draws, so well done to the two players who managed to land the top prize on Tuesday. The jackpot in the next game this Friday 1 February will once again be worth around £12 million and it will be very interesting to see if someone can make it three wins in a row.
Before we find out whether or not that happens, the last Lotto draw of the month will take place tonight (Wednesday 30 January) for a jackpot of around £2.1 million. With 20 Lotto jackpot winners already this month, players across the country will be extremely keen to add themselves to the tally. If you fancy your chances then head this way to buy your tickets and good luck!
