EuroMillions Jackpot Scooped as MegaMillions RollsWednesday September 14th 2011
An exciting round of midweek lottery draws that took place on Tuesday night brought change to the world of lottery with the massive EuroMillions jackpot scooped as the MegaMillions rolls one more time. This means that the EuroMillions will now return to its starting point of €15 million for the draw on Friday while the MegaMillions jackpot bumps up to a mouth watering $65 million with draws for both of these lottery games next taking place on Friday 16th September.
The winning MegaMillions numbers were 22, 31, 43, 48, 56 with Mega 45 and Megaplier 4. Obviously there were no jackpot winners this time around but if you hold a ticket for this draw you could still be a winner. If you chose to opt for the Megaplier when you picked your numbers, then of course any non jackpot win could even sweeter.
Across the other side of the Atlantic we saw the EuroMillions draw take place. This is the lottery game that has been causing the biggest stir over the last two or three weeks and after much anticipation and lots of whats, ifs, buts and maybes, this fantastic jackpot of €159 million was finally won with the lucky ticket holder hailing from France.
So now we will probably see attentions switch to other lottery games with higher jackpots which are likely to be the MegaMillions in the US and Europe will more than likely have its eyes on the Italian Lottery game, SuperEnalotto that has a current jackpot of €62.5 million.
