After series of victories for players from Spain, Portugal and the UK, France proved it’s a force to be reckoned with in the Euromillions draw this Friday night. One lucky participant from this country matched all the winning numbers to scoop an astonishing €40.000.000 jackpot.
The winning line that enabled this amazing victory was 11, 19, 27, 28 and 39 with Lucky Stars 3 and 10. The jackpot winner from France may be the only person to match all the numbers, but several participants also won significant sums of money on June 24th. Four players (including two from the UK) netted around €350.000 each after missing the jackpot by only one Lucky Star. Another nine ticket holders snatched €50.000 each when they correctly guessed the five main numbers.
France has been on the top of the list of countries with the highest number of Euromillions jackpot wins for some time, and it seems it’s not going down anytime soon. French ticket holders have won the top prize in this game 79 times to date, but they are closely followed by Spanish lotto enthusiasts, who have 77 wins. The third place on the list belongs to Portugal, with the total of 59 victories.
Unlike Euromillions, Mega Millions failed to produce a jackpot winner on Friday night, but it brought a lot of luck to several players across the US. When the numbers 11, 14, 54, 57 and 63 with the Mega Ball 11 were drawn, four participants were only a step away from matching them all. Three ticket holders from Arizona, Illinois and North Carolina netted $1.000.000 each, for matching the five main numbers. One player from Texas did the same thing, but ended up winning five times that much thanks to using the Megaplier option.
