EuroMillions Jackpot Stays at €190 Million – August 8th, 2012
There was no winner in last night’s (August 7th) EuroMillions draw and so the €190 million jackpot rolls over again.
This is the 14th consecutive time that somebody has failed to match the five numbers with the two lucky stars, after 20, 27, 34, 46 and 50 came out and 2 and 3 were picked as the lucky stars. However, as the lotto has already reached its jackpot cap, the top prize will stay at €190 million.
Friday is a win-win situation for players, as either someone will take home the monster payout, or the jackpot pool will be rolled down to the next highest prize level that does have winners and this means secondary prizes could be in the millions.
The EuroMillions is currently top of theBig at theLotter, which means it is offering the biggest declared jackpot in the world and this is one of the many reasons why people should try their luck on Friday.
Seven people managed to match five numbers and one lucky star in last night’s draw and each of them pocketed a cool €2,318,241. This highlights how individuals do not need to land the top prize in order to get their hands on a life-changing sum of money.
Indeed, 21 individuals who got five numbers were rewarded with a cheque for €54,277. In total, there are 13 different prize categories for those taking part in the EuroMillions and players only have to match two numbers to take home some money.
For UK participants, there was the added excitement of the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Raffle, which saw one person in the country guaranteed to pick up a seven-figure sum. Whoever has the randomly generated raffle number HDH137638 is now £1 million richer.
Attention will now turn to EuroMillions draw time on Friday. Everyone who enters the lottery will have a chance to get their hands on the €190 million jackpot.
However, if no one gets five numbers and two lucky stars, then individuals who win in the next prize tier can look forward to a bumper payout thanks to the jackpot cap system operated by the lottery.
So make sure you get excited for this historic draw!
