While there was no top tier winner last night, more than 2 million players secured a prize in the draw. Three players, all from outside of the UK, came within one Lucky Star of hitting the jackpot when they matched all five main numbers but just one Lucky Star to each win a second place prize worth €433,234.30.
The third tier saw eight players match five main numbers to win £37,631 (€54,154) each and were followed by 46 players who matched four main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win £3,272 (€4,709) each. A further 1,000 ticket holders won £131 (€189) each for matching four main numbers but just one Lucky Star.
The remaining 2,071,571 winners earned prizes worth between £2.70 (€4) for matching two main numbers and £63.10 (€90.80) for matching four main numbers. Additionally, one lucky UK player matched the unique code WDY323192 in the supplementary UK Millionaire Raffle to win a £1 million prize.
The EuroMillions jackpot, which has eluded players throughout April, now stands at an impressive £72 million (€88 million) for the first draw of May. Those participating in the draw, on Friday 2nd May, will be competing for the third largest EuroMillions jackpot seen far this year so participation is set to sky rocket. If you want to play, make sure you have your tickets ready in plenty of time.
