For the ninth draw in a row, no ticket holder was able to match all seven numbers drawn so the top prize has increased to an incredible £85 million (€105 million) for Friday’s draw, but what does this mean for the EuroMillions Superdraw that was scheduled for Friday?
According to UK lottery officials, Friday’s EuroMillions Superdraw jackpot was a guaranteed €100 million but as the natural jackpot is now bigger than this amount, it is the natural jackpot that will be available in Friday’s draw. The additional funds which would have been used to top up a smaller jackpot to the guaranteed €100 million will now remain in the EuroMillions Reserve Fund and be used to fund future Superdraws or promotions.
Despite no players securing the jackpot in last night’s draw, eight ticket holders matched all five main numbers and one Lucky Star to win €188,388 each while five players secured a prize of €100,473 each by matching all five main numbers.
The remaining winning ticket holders took home prizes worth between £3 (€4.40) for matching just two main numbers up to £4,047 (€5,841) for matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars. In the UK Millionaire Raffle draw, one lucky UK ticket holder became £1 million richer by correctly matching the unique nine digit code JHS710156. The complete prize breakdown from last night’s draw is available on Euro-Millions.com.
As the EuroMillions jackpot has now surpassed the €100 million mark, participation for Friday’s draw is set to rocket so we advise players purchase their EuroMillions tickets in plenty of time to avoid the last-minute rush.
