French winner celebrates €24.000.000 Euromillions jackpot

Only a week after one lucky punter from the UK snatched a €40.000.000 windfall, Euromillions produced another jackpot winner on Friday night. This one comes from France, and they’ve become €24.000.000 richer after matching all the winning numbers in the last night’s draw. Euromillions jackpot has been reset to €17.000.000, but another European lottery is currently offering a nine-digit windfall – play SuperEnaLotto and take €145.500.000 home!

The winning numbers drawn on September 23rd were 14, 16, 39, 42 and 49 with Lucky Stars 3 and 9. Six players (including one from the France, three from Spain and one from Portugal) missed the jackpot by only one Lucky Star and won impressive €220.000 cash reward each. The draw on Friday night also produced 11 additional winners of €40.000 prize for matching the five main numbers.

This French victory proved once again that residents of this country truly are the luckiest Euromillions players on the continent. France currently has a total of 80 jackpot wins, but it’s closely followed by Spain which has 78 at the moment. The UK is in the third spot with 63 jackpot victories to date.

Unlike Euromillions, its main competitor failed to produce a jackpot winner on Friday night – the winning Eurojackpot combination was 1, 7, 23, 25 and 45 with Euro numbers 5 and 8. Even though no one managed to snatch a life-changing windfall, few people were only one step away – four participants who matched the five main numbers and one Euro number became €500.000 richer. Top prize jumped to €76.000.000, which is the fourth largest jackpot offered in the history of this game – play now to take it home!
