EuroMillions Disappointment for French PlayerMonday July 11th 2011
While many lottery players around the globe were left reeling that the massive rollover jackpot was not won on Friday, there was EuroMillions disappointment for a French player who was left reeling for a completely different reason. After checking his lottery tickets several times this player was convinced he had matched five numbers and both Lucky Stars to scoop the amazing €185 million jackpot and rang around all of his family and friends to tell them of his EuroMillions jackpot win.
However, his EuroMillions celebrations soon came to an abrupt halt when news hit the headlines the next day that there was in fact another rollover on the EuroMillions meaning that this French player could not have won. Family and friends rallied round the disappointed man who still insisted that he had matched the numbers and he had won the EuroMillions jackpot. Closer inspection of the lottery ticket by a family member revealed that this ticket was in fact a ticket for a draw that had taken place two months prior, leaving the French player not only disappointed but also a little red faced.
There is light at the end of the tunnel for this player as well as the millions of other players that missed out on the EuroMillions jackpot. No winner on Friday means that there is another massive jackpot of €185 million up for grabs for the draw on Tuesday so everyone gets another stab at bagging this record breaking jackpot.
If you would like to buy lottery tickets for the Tuesday draw, then it is advisable to do so now to avoid the ticket buying frenzy that will be hitting Europe.
