The good news is that the EuroMillions lottery jackpot of £136,124,363 – the result of 12 rollovers – was won by a single lottery player on Tuesday 13th November’s draw. But it wasn’t won by a UK lottery ticket-holder. This windfall is France’s 58th EuroMillions lottery jackpot win to the UK’s 36th. Ah well, we can’t win the jackpot every time…apparently!
The winning lottery numbers which brought this good fortune to our neighbours across the Channel were: 11, 16, 21, 24, 29 and Lucky Stars: 2 and 6. But there were 21 lucky UK lottery winners matching 5 numbers and 1 Lucky Star, who will receive £85,914 each, and 25 UK ticket-holders matching 5 numbers, who win £24,056 each.
