Of the nine nations that participate in the EuroMillions game, Spain is the second most successful, having secured 62 of the 280 jackpots that have been won since the lottery began. The most successful nation is France, with 71 jackpot wins, so Spain is just 9 wins behind, and that means it is well within the realms of possibility for Spain to close the gap, and perhaps even end the year as the luckiest country of all.
None of the players in the eight other competing countries will be content to let Spain do that by default. EuroMillions fans in France, Luxembourg, Portugal, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium and the United Kingdom will all be trying hard to land a jackpot – and preferably several – in the nine months that remain of the year. With two draws taking place each and every week, it is highly unlikely that Spain will be able to maintain it's current success rate of being involved in 62.5% of this year's jackpot wins, but time will tell.
Once again, we will have to wait and see how things unfold as the year progresses, but right now lottery enthusiasts can get the brand new month of April off to an exciting start by playing for an equally fresh jackpot in the EuroMillions game this Tuesday 1st April. The most overdue main numbers according to the EuroMillions Statistics page over at Euro-Millions.com are 09, 14, 45, 11 and 29, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 11 and 04. Keep an eye out for those numbers appearing on Tuesday and be sure to check back here afterwards for our full round-up of the results.
