Those hoping for the first Euromillions rollover from last night’s lottery results may be disappointed but the Euromillions Lottery has been won at base jackpot yet again as two Euromillionaires are created. This week didn’t yield a UK Euromillions winner but two players shared the jackpot. It’s not known which of the nine European countries the winners came from but they win equal shares of last night’s £12.3 million jackpot.
Last night’s Euromillions draw went off without event at 10pm in Paris and you can check the numbers on our lottery results page. Two players matched all five winning numbers and the lucky stars and they scoop the jackpot but there were lots of smaller winners too, many of these from the UK.
Seven players matched five main balls and one lucky star and they collect over £200,000 each, two of the seven were from the UK. Another ten players scooped over £50,000 for matching just the five main balls and four of those players were from the UK.
Add to that the Millionaire Raffle winner and despite the jackpot not going to a UK player, you can see in the lottery results that the UK fared very well in the draw with over £4 million going to UK lottery players.
If you missed out last night then don’t worry, tonight it’s the turn of the UK Lotto from the National Lottery and you can buy lottery tickets now for that draw, estimated to be worth £4.4 million. Don’t forget to check back for the lottery results.
