Europe Gripped by EuroMillions Jackpot Fever

Lottery outlets across Europe have been reporting increased EuroMillions ticket sales in recent weeks thanks to a jackpot that continues to climb, and another rollover last Friday is sure to see that trend continue. The estimated jackpot value for the next game this Tuesday 7 January is €127 / £105 million, and players are getting massively excited by the fact that the only thing they need to do to win that sum is match five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers.

The odds of matching all seven numbers drawn with a single ticket are around 1 in 116.5 million, but the odds of winning any prize at all with a single ticket are a much more encouraging 1 in 13. Consolation prizes can be worth six or sometimes even seven figures, so even if the jackpot rolls again there is a very good chance that at least a handful of people will emerge from the game with an impressive win to their credit.

Players who want to increase their chances of winning a prize in Tuesday’s game can do so by purchasing multiple entries. Anyone who wants to do that but isn’t sure about which numbers to enter might find inspiration on the EuroMillions Statistics page over at Stats about all of the numbers used in the game can be found there, and various sets of numbers are highlighted for ready reference. For example, we can tell you that the most overdue main numbers right now are 34, 16, 04, 21 and 11, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 04 and 09.

All lottery tickets are potentially worth a fortune, but tickets purchased for the EuroMillions game this Tuesday could be worth as much as €127 / £105 million. That being the case, it makes sense to play the game as safely as possible by purchasing tickets online so that entries cannot be lost or stolen. Playing online is even more convenient than buying tickets from offline retailers, and it has the added advantage of allowing winners to be notified of their success by email.

Good luck to everyone who will be playing for the EuroMillions jackpot on Tuesday, and be sure to check your numbers as soon as possible after the draw so that you can make any claim required without delay!
