Switzerland Celebrates EuroMillions Win

The latest nation to celebrate one of its residents landing a EuroMillions jackpot is Switzerland, after one Swiss ticket matched all seven numbers on Friday 21st March to win the life-changing sum of £21,325,022 (€25,493,153). Switzerland is one of the smaller countries to participate in the EuroMillions game, so it doesn't tend to succeed as often as countries with larger populations, but it still enjoys its fair share of jackpot wins. This latest success is jackpot win number 14, which means that Switzerland has landed 5% of all jackpots won since the game began in 2004.

Whilst Switzerland hasn't been the most successful nation as far as EuroMillions jackpot wins are concerned, it is still faring better than Ireland, which has had five wins, and Luxembourg, which has had just one. The most successful countries at the time of writing are France, with 71 wins, Spain, with 61 wins, and Portugal, with 51 wins. The total number of jackpots landed since the game was launched is 279, and you can view the complete list of wins for the nine participating nations by visiting the EuroMillions Winners page at Euro-Millions.com.

The jackpot for the next EuroMillions game, on Tuesday 25th March, has now been reset to its base value of €15 million, which equates to around £12 million for players in the UK. Players who want to try and win by including one or more of the most overdue numbers on their tickets should be considering the main numbers 09, 14, 50, 45 and 11, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 03 and 11. Those who want to follow the most often picked numbers will want to consider the main numbers 50, 04, 44, 19 and 38, along with Lucky Star numbers 05 and 02.

Lottery fans who want to look beyond EuroMillions for their next chance to win big will be most interested in the SuperEnalotto game, which is currently offering a jackpot worth €8.8 million, and the Mega Millions game in the USA, which is advertising a top prize of $20 million. Good luck to all lottery players in the week ahead, and don't forget that you can visit our Lottery Results page to obtain the latest winning numbers just as soon as each draw has taken place.
