UK Ticket Wins EuroMillions!

One lottery ticket that was purchased in the United Kingdom won Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot outright. The jackpot win came on the back of two previous rollovers, so the amount landed was particularly impressive and will no doubt serve its lucky winner very well indeed. To find out exactly how much the EuroMillions jackpot was worth, and for news on how players fared in the other big world lottery games over the last few days (including news of another big jackpot win) read on…

UK Ticket Wins EuroMillions!


07 – 20 – 21 – 33 – 41 Euro Numbers: 01 and 02

EuroJackpot players were hoping to land an advertised jackpot of €19 million on Friday night, but the top prize rolled over for the third draw in a row to set things up for an even bigger jackpot next time. On a brighter note, two tickets were able to match all five of the main numbers and one of the Euro numbers to win €556,439 each, and eight entries matched the five main numbers only to land a second tier prize worth €49,097 each. As usual, the prizes won at the lower levels were more modest, but more than 481,000 tickets secured a cash prize of some kind, and the next EuroJackpot game on Friday 19th February will now offer a jackpot worth around €24 million.


03 – 20 – 28 – 31 – 49 Lucky Stars: 02 and 05

The Friday night EuroMillions game this week offered a double rollover jackpot worth £24,769,932 (€32,002,496), and we can confirm that one ticket, which had been purchased in the UK, matched all of the seven numbers that were required to win that sum outright. Two tickets matched the five main numbers and one of the Lucky Star numbers to win a second tier prize of €760,400 each, and another 15 entries won £24,725 (€33,796) each by matching the five main numbers only. Over 2.45 million tickets won smaller prizes, and there will now be a brand new jackpot of around £11 million (€15 million) for players to try and win in the next game on Tuesday 16th February.

Mega Millions    

01 – 07 – 44 – 68 – 73 Mega Ball: 01

A jackpot worth $87 million was getting players excited in the latest Mega Millions game, and they will have even more to get excited about next time thanks to no player winning on Friday. The second prize tier was also vacant of winners, but 22 tickets did manage to match four main numbers plus the Mega Ball number to win $5,000 each at the third tier. More than 1.06 million entries won prizes across the lower levels, and the jackpot for the next game on Tuesday will have an advertised value of $94 million.


07 – 15 – 18 – 19 – 36 Powerball: 20

The Powerball jackpot was worth $176 million to any player who could match all six of the numbers that were drawn on Saturday, but none of the entries managed to do that. The much better news is that four tickets matched the five main numbers needed to win $1 million each, so at least a handful of participants succeeded in winning millionaire status despite the jackpot rollover. Another 22 tickets won $50,000 each at the third tier by matching four main numbers plus the Powerball, and over 627,000 tickets won smaller prizes by matching fewer numbers. The jackpot in the next game on Wednesday 17th February will be worth an estimated $189 million.

UK Lotto

15 – 16 – 23 – 39 – 48 – 59 Bonus Ball: 36

The UK Lotto jackpot was worth £32,534,188 on Saturday night, and that was thanks to a chain of nine consecutive rollovers in previous games. That chain was broken this week, with one ticket matching all six main numbers to land the jackpot outright, so someone in the UK will have something extra special to celebrate this Valentine’s Day weekend. Another single ticket matched five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball to win £110,904, and over 1.62 million entries won lesser amounts at the lower levels. The Lotto Millionaire Raffle number on Saturday (which is worth £1 million to the player who matched it) was PINK 4090 2016, and there will now be a jackpot of around £2.2 million for players to try and win in the next Lotto game on Wednesday.
