Double Delight for UK EuroMillions Players
Last Updated: Wednesday 6th July 2016, 10:53 am
Tuesday evening’s EuroMillions draw saw two lucky UK ticket holders share a very handsome £642,039. Both players were fortuitous enough to match all five main numbers and one lucky star to claim £321,019 apiece.
The all-important EuroMillions numbers were 1, 10, 29, 38 and 48, with 3 and 4 emerging as the Lucky Stars. The ticket holders, who are yet to make themselves known to lottery officials, are the UK's largest prize winners so far this month and have claimed the biggest sum won in the main game by British players since a single ticket holder scooped £357,192 on the 21st of June. The draw proved successful for a further 324,548 players in the UK, who won prizes ranging from £3.10 for matching two main numbers all the way up to £53,503 for matching five main numbers. See the full prize breakdown at the EuroMillions Results page.
Tuesday’s draw failed to produce a jackpot winner, meaning that the top prize now rolls over to an estimated £20 million ahead of this Friday’s draw. Following reports of a £20.1 million (€23.8 million) EuroMillions win for a syndicate of bus drivers across the sea in Ireland, players in every corner of the UK will be desperate to claim this upcoming jackpot and end a winless run that stretches back to Tuesday 12th April, when a lucky ticket holder secured a prize worth over £51.8 million. This prolonged wait for a jackpot winner has also seen the UK lose further ground on France, Spain and Portugal in the leaderboard of EuroMillions jackpot winners.
With the collective will of the nation focused on landing a rollover EuroMillions jackpot this weekend, Friday’s prize could arrive on these shores faster than the England football team returning from a major international tournament. To be in with a chance of winning this amazing prize, EuroMillions tickets can be purchased online or from any authorised retailer. Best of luck!
