EuroMillions Jackpot Déjà Vu

The EuroMillions lottery draw on Friday gave players a strange sense of déjà vu by delivering a jackpot worth just over €25 / £20 million to a single Spanish ticket for the second week in a row. The exact value of the jackpot landed on Friday was €25,543,227 / £20,927,566, and the success means that Spain has now been involved in three jackpot wins since the beginning of the year. France is the only other nation to have won a jackpot (a French ticket has won the top prize on two occasions) so Spanish players have definitely got 2014 off to a very lucky start!

As we have said previously, no pattern that occurs in lottery games is genuinely meaningful in any mathematical sense, and that includes the short-term pattern of a particular country enjoying back-to-back jackpot wins. That said, such back-to-back wins can definitely encourage more players from the successful nation to participate, and the elevated number of entries that follow can obviously increase the chances of that nation winning again. Whether a Spanish ticket will manage to win the next jackpot remains to be seen.

The next EuroMillions game this Tuesday 18th February will offer a brand new jackpot worth €15 million, which should be worth around £12 million to any UK player who manages to win the same. The UK has yet to get on the winning trail this year, as have all of the other participating nations, but there is still plenty of time for the current situation to turn into something completely different.

Lottery players looking for inspiration when selecting numbers for their next batch of tickets might want to take a look at the EuroMillions Statistics page at, which details how all of the numbers have fared since the game began. That page currently reveals that the most overdue main numbers as we head into the midweek draw are 09, 30, 14, 40 and 07, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 03 and 06. It will be interesting to see if any of those numbers appear in the game this Tuesday, and we wish the best of luck to everyone who intends to get involved.
