Euromillions August 2004
French victory at Euromillions continues
After a lean period - in the last six draws, not a single gambler had won the jackpot - the Euromillions jackpot was hit again in August. The lucky winner was again from France. Five of the eight Euromillions jackpots that were paid out so far went to the Grande Nation.
The lucky numbers of the 26th draw on 6 August 2004 were 5, 15, 24, 35 and 44 as well as Lucky Star 5 and Lucky Star 6. Because no one had cracked the Euromillions jackpot in the last six draws before, the French lucky fellow could delight in the sum of 24,746,858 euro. In the three other draws in August, not a single player could even guess the right five numbers and two lucky star numbers. Nevertheless, on 20th August 2004, the multi-national lottery Euromillions made a millionaire.
On the 28th Euromillions draw held on this day, not only the first rank, but also the second rank remained vacant. Since only one player had guessed the correct five numbers, he could look forward to an unusually high win of € 1,000,876.30 for the third place. His lucky numbers were 6, 9, 10, 27, and 35. If he had also scored fortune stars 6 and 8, he could have increased even more than tenfold his win.
