Two Tickets Win EuroMillions Jackpot!
Two tickets shared a EuroMillions jackpot worth €132,376,632 (around £100,765,091) on Friday night, and we can tell you that the winning entries had been purchased in France and Ireland. This latest stroke of good fortune means that France, which was already the luckiest participating nation in terms of jackpot wins, has now won all or part of 79 jackpots since the EuroMillions game began in 2004. Ireland, having a much smaller population, has been involved in fewer jackpot wins, but Friday’s success increased its modest jackpot-winning tally to 8.
The EuroMillions results for Friday 29 January were 01, 05, 23, 29 and 32, along with the Lucky Star numbers 01 and 07. There were six tickets that matched all five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a second tier prize worth £303,465 each, and we are pleased to report that three of those tickets had been purchased right here in the UK, so well done to the players concerned.
Five tickets won £121,386 for each of their owners by matching the five main numbers only, and two of those entries had been purchased by players in the UK. There were 97 tickets that matched four main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers to win £3,128 each at the fourth tier, and more than 4.17 million entries won smaller sums across the lower prize tiers. The total amount of cash won by UK players in the main EuroMillions game exceeded £6.42 million.
Whilst Brits missed out on winning themselves millionaire status in the main game on Friday, seven players achieved the feat in the associated Mega Friday Millionaire Maker game. Each winning player landed a prize of £1 million plus a luxury seven-day break for two in Dubai, and for those of you who have yet to check your tickets, the winning codes were as follows:
Now that the extended sequence of jackpot rollovers has finally come to an end, EuroMillions players can look forward to starting the new month afresh. The next game this Tuesday 2 February will offer a brand new jackpot worth around £11 million, and the Millionaire Maker draw will create one more winner of £1 million even if the top prize in the main game rolls over. Good luck to those of you who intend to invest in a ticket or two, and remember to let us know if you win big!Published: Monday 1st February 2016
