EuroMillions Nears Jackpot Cap with Sixth Rollover

19 Jun 2013

Tuesday’s draw produced no jackpot winners for a sixth consecutive rollover in a row! This European lotto star continues its domination of the lottery world with a €166 million top prize.

EuroMillions is dangerously close to beating its record €185 million jackpot prize, awarded to Colin and Chris Weir of North Ayrshire in July of 2011. Almost two weeks after the EuroMillions €100 million Super Draw on June 7th, this pan-European draw has rolled over four times and skyrocketed to the top echelon of theBig list. With no jackpot winner, EuroMillions will enter Friday’s draw with the world’s highest prize: a colossal €166 million blowout!

Tuesday’s EuroMillions lotto results created some big secondary winners , with winning numbers 17, 24, 33, 41, 44, and Lucky Star numbers 1 and 11. There were 13 players that matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star and took home an amazing €176,076 prize. There were also 21 ticket-holders that were able to match five main numbers for a fantastic €36,333 third-place prize. In total, EuroMillions distributed approximately €28,149,594 in prizes to 3,636,943 players.

Just as the hunt for a EuroMillions jackpot winner continues, so does the search for the EuroMillions UK Super Raffle draw winner that took place on May 31 st. This lucky-ticket holder, who bought the ticket in Ladywood, Birmingham, has until November 27th to come forward and claim their winning raffle ticket, which has the EuroMillions UK Super Raffle code JRG437445, which can be redeemed for £12 million with £1 million per month over the course of the year.

If this winner fails to come forward to claim the winning raffle ticket, they will miss out on £1 million per month for a whole year, and the prize funds will go towards The National Lottery Good Causes. They will also be unable to join the ranks of recent South Lanarkshire area winners. The Birmingham area, specifically the B postcode which has been nicknamed “the luckiest zone,” has seen 94 people join the ‘Millionaires Club’ since EuroMillions was launched in 1994.

Last year, the city saw three Birmingham residents win a combined £10 million, starting with Paul and Marie Kibler, who won £2.2 million in February. In September, Thomas Foden and his daughter Irene Harper split a juicy £3.9 million win. One month later, David and Debra Allsobrook stumbled upon a £3.8 million payday!

Europe’s premier lottery is coming back this Friday, and players can avoid misplacing their tickets by purchasing their lottery tickets online. For your chance at this €166 million grand prize play EuroMillions online!
