Since the estimated jackpot is approximately four times larger than the minimum jackpot value of €15 million, quite a few EuroMillions players around the world will choose to play four times as many entries as usual. Every entry gives the player a 1 in 13 chance of winning a prize, so playing four entries would improve those odds to almost 1 in 3, which is probably more than enough reason for anyone to be optimistic.
As always, the EuroMillions Statistics page over at Euro-Millions.com provides plenty of inspiration to players who are wondering which numbers to include on their entries. The most often picked main numbers at the time of writing are 50, 04, 11, 19 and 44, and the most often picked Lucky Star numbers are 05 and 03.
Those players who want to include one or more of the most overdue main numbers on their entries should be considering the numbers 16, 21, 47, 46 and 39, whilst the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 09 and 02. The most common pair of main numbers drawn is 23 and 24, and the most common pair of Lucky Stars is 02 and 06.
It will be interesting to see if any of the numbers just mentioned will show up in tonight’s draw, and it will be just as interesting to see if anyone manages to win the €59 / £49 million jackpot. Check back tomorrow for our round-up of the results and good luck to those of you who intend to buy a ticket or two!
