Eight players match all 5 Euromillions numbers but lose the biggest prize
The Euromillions draw is characterized by the fact that in it citizens of up to nine countries participate, namely Spain, France, United Kingdom, Portugal, Ireland, Austria, Belgium, Switzerland and Luxembourg. This prize, which begins with a jackpot of 17 million euros like the one on Tuesday, can reach reach up to 230 million euros.
Once this limit is exceeded, it will be increased by 10 million up to a maximum limit of 250 million euros, as established in the sweepstakes rules. Last year, on October 25, 2021, the largest jackpot in history was reached with 220 million euros, so the limits have increased to those set today.
In one of the last EuroMillions draws on November 1, eight regular players were about to win the biggest prize. However, a small mistake in the combination of their ticket numbers meant that they could not take it. But what was the mistake that caused them to lose a fortune of 141 million euros?
The winning combination of the Euromillions
As noted in the local newspaper Dublin Livea total of eight players had the combination with the five numbers resulting from the draw, however, they had not chosen the correct stars. This is because to bet on this game it is necessary to choose both five numbers and two extra numbers that are part of the stars. In addition, each ticket is accompanied by a alphanumeric code that allows you to win up to one million euros in an extra draw of the same Euromillions.
Despite not having the stars corresponding to the winning combination, which was 19, 37, 42, 47, 48 and the stars 6 and 1, the lucky ones were able to win a prize of 21,671 euros for having hit the other numbers. This situation is quite common and for this reason, in the distribution of prizes, players can win several jackpots depending on the matches they have on their tickets. In fact, for the simple fact of have hit two numbersthe players were able to win a prize of 4.5 euros in the last draw.
