Euromillions on the roll
Last Updated: Saturday 20th February 2010, 11:39
In a move that should come as no surprise to regular Euromillions players, last night’s base jackpot rolls again on the Euromillions after no players matched all the winning numbers in last night’s draw. That means that next week there will be a staggering £25 million available on the Euromillions Lottery and who knows how high it will climb before we see a winner.
The Euromillions Lottery is notoriously difficult to win, with players having to choose numbers from two separate ball pools. This means that rollovers are a regular occurrence and it’s no wonder with odds of winning the jackpot set at around one in 74 million.
Overall odds of winning a prize in the Euromillions Lottery are much lower however and that would explain why the lottery created so many smaller winners last night. Four players matched five main balls and one lucky star and there were many other winners too totalling £3.6 million in prizes altogether plus the £1 million prize of the Millionaire Raffle winner.
You can check your lotto tickets for winning numbers on our results page, let’s hope you were lucky, check those tickets very carefully and don’t forget to check your Millionaire Raffle number. Of course tonight brings the UK Lotto draw, that one’s worth £4.4 million, not quite as high as the Euromillions Lottery but certainly not to be sniffed at.
Next week’s Euromillions lottery is a rollover though, so be sure to grab tickets for that one before the draw next Friday evening. Good luck!
