One lucky Lotto player celebrated the first official weekend of summer in style after matching the six numbers drawn to scoop the £3.7 million jackpot. However it was the Euromillions draw on Friday night that stole the limelight when the jackpot rolled over again to be worth an enormous £157 million in this Tuesday night’s draw.
Friday’s Euromillions numbers were 10, 11, 30, 36 and 45 with the Lucky Stars 1 and 2. This highly anticipated draw saw eight ticket holders match five numbers plus one Lucky Star to each win £280,394 while 18 players matched five numbers to win £41,539. A full prize breakdown of Friday’s results can be found on the Euromillions results page.
Tuesday’s £157 million Euromillions top prize is now the second largest Euromillions jackpot in the game’s history and falls just short of the £161 million jackpot won by Scottish couple Chris and Colin Weir in July 2011.
The massive jackpot is sure to create a huge surge in ticket sales with queues expected at lottery retailers nationwide. To avoid the queues you can purchase your Euromillions tickets online from the Lottery Tickets page and, who knows, you could wake up on Wednesday morning a few pounds or £157 million richer!
