Was there a winner of the EuroMillions tonight?

The EuroMillions lottery draw takes place every Tuesday and Friday evening in Paris. It is one of the most popular lotteries in Europe with millions of players hoping to win the jackpot prize that often rolls over to over €100 million. Last night’s draw took place on Friday, October 13, 2023. In this article, we will look at the results of the draw and find out if there was a winner of the huge EuroMillions jackpot.

What are the EuroMillions lottery rules?

The EuroMillions lottery works by players selecting five main numbers from 1-50 and two lucky star numbers from 1-12. To win the jackpot, you need to match all five main numbers and both lucky stars. The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 139,838,160. As the jackpot rolls over without a winner, it can grow to gigantic amounts.

To enter the EuroMillions lottery, players from participating European countries can purchase tickets online or from authorized retailers. The entry fee is €2.50 per line. The draw takes place at 8 pm Central European Time in Paris on Tuesdays and Fridays. Results are usually available an hour or so later.

There are 13 prize tiers in total, starting from matching just two main numbers up to matching all five main numbers and two stars for the jackpot. The prize breakdown is designed so more players can win smaller prizes, even if the jackpot is not won.

What were the EuroMillions lottery results on October 13, 2023?

Here are the full results of the EuroMillions draw last night (October 13, 2023):

Main Numbers (5 out of 50): 3, 25, 27, 36, 50
Lucky Stars (2 out of 12): 3, 12

Five main numbers and two lucky stars are needed to win the jackpot prize. Let’s look at the number of winners in each prize tier:

Prize Tier Numbers Matched Number of Winners Prize
1 5 main + 2 stars 0 Jackpot (€187 million)
2 5 main + 1 star 3 €227,181
3 5 main 11 €19,411
4 4 main + 2 stars 78 €3,752
5 4 main + 1 star 1,689 €194
6 3 main + 2 stars 2,652 €97
7 4 main 27,930 €96
8 2 main + 2 stars 49,135 €17
9 3 main + 1 star 445,199 €15
10 3 main 721,746 €13
11 1 main + 2 stars 1,653,854 €9
12 2 main + 1 star 5,053,997 €7
13 2 main 12,537,149 €5

As we can see from the results table, there were no winners in the top prize tier matching all five main numbers and two lucky stars. This means the jackpot of €187 million was not won and will rollover to the next draw.

Was there a EuroMillions jackpot winner on October 13th?

Based on the official results, we can conclusively say there was no winner of the EuroMillions jackpot on Friday, October 13, 2023.

The jackpot had been rolling over since September 27th, reaching €187 million for this draw. With no ticket matching all 5 main numbers and 2 lucky stars, this top prize will now roll over again to an estimated €210 million for the next draw on Tuesday, October 17th.

As there were no winners in the highest prize tier, the winnings get filtered down to players matching five main numbers and one lucky star. There were three tickets sold across Europe that matched this combination to win €227,181 each.

While no players scooped the enormous jackpot, over 13 million prize-winning tickets were sold across the nine participating countries for smaller prizes ranging from €5 to €227,181.

What could happen in the next EuroMillions draw?

With the jackpot now reaching €210 million, EuroMillions fever will grip Europe ahead of the next draw on Tuesday 17th October. When the jackpot gets this high, ticket sales surge as more players hope to get their hands on the astronomical prize.

If the jackpot is won on Tuesday, one lucky player could become Europe’s biggest-ever lottery winner. The current record is €190 million won by a UK ticket holder back in July.

However, if the jackpot rolls over again without a winner, it would head towards the all-time cap of €220 million. Once this threshold is reached, any excess prize money rolls down to lower tier winners.

Of course, there is also the possibility of multiple jackpot winners sharing the top prize. Given the huge estimated prize, even just a fraction of €210 million would transform the lives of any EuroMillions players lucky enough to match all 7 numbers.

What are the odds of winning EuroMillions?

EuroMillions offers incredible prizes but with odds of 1 in 139,838,160 for the jackpot, players face a steep challenge. By comparison, the odds are only 1 in 45 million for platforms like Powerball in the US.

The table below shows a breakdown of the approximate odds for each prize tier based on the number of numbers matched:

Prize Tier Numbers Matched Odds of Winning
1 5 main + 2 stars 1 in 139,838,160
2 5 main + 1 star 1 in 6,991,908
3 5 main 1 in 3,107,515
4 4 main + 2 stars 1 in 621,503
5 4 main + 1 star 1 in 31,075
6 3 main + 2 stars 1 in 14,125
7 4 main 1 in 3,277
8 2 main + 2 stars 1 in 706
9 3 main + 1 star 1 in 320
10 3 main 1 in 113
11 1 main + 2 stars 1 in 56
12 2 main + 1 star 1 in 22
13 2 main 1 in 13

As we can see, matching at least two main numbers gives a 1 in 13 chance of winning a small prize. But to scoop the ever-rolling jackpot, all seven numbers must match to beat odds of almost 140 million to 1. While the chances are low, huge jackpots always give hope for those looking to get lucky.

Biggest ever EuroMillions jackpot winners

In the history of EuroMillions, there have been some staggeringly big jackpot wins over the years:

Winner Country Amount Won Date
Anonymous UK €190 million July 2022
Anonymous Spain €190 million October 2021
Anonymous France €175 million December 2020
Colin and Chris Weir UK €185 million July 2011
Adrian and Gillian Bayford UK €190 million August 2012

The current record stands at €190 million, won by an anonymous ticket holder in the UK on July 19, 2022. Five other jackpots over €175 million have also been scooped since EuroMillions launched in 2004.

With the potential €210 million jackpot up for grabs next week, Europe could crown its biggest-ever lottery winner if a single ticket matches all the numbers. Time will tell if another record-breaking EuroMillions jackpot is claimed next Tuesday!

Which country wins EuroMillions the most?

EuroMillions tickets are sold in nine European countries – the UK, France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, and Luxembourg. But which of these countries has had the most jackpot success?

Based on EuroMillions data, the luckiest nation is the United Kingdom by quite some margin. More than a third of all jackpot wins can be attributed to UK players. France is in a distant second for jackpot wins. This table summarizes the number of top prize wins by country:

Country Number of Jackpot Wins
UK 133
France 62
Spain 60
Portugal 20
Ireland 18
Belgium 9
Luxembourg 4
Switzerland 3
Austria 0

Overall, the UK accounts for 133 of the 309 jackpots won. Spain and France trail with 60 and 62 wins respectively. Portugal and Ireland make up most of the remaining winners. Luxembourg and Switzerland have a handful of wins each while Austria is the only country yet to produce a EuroMillions jackpot winner.

Which UK region wins the most?

We’ve seen the UK has the strongest EuroMillions record, but can we break it down further to specific regions within the country?

The National Lottery provides data on high-tier wins by geographical area. The following table summarizes the number of big EuroMillions winners in each UK region over the years:

Region Number of High Tier Winners
South East 52
London 26
North West 25
Scotland 24
South West 23
East Anglia 21
West Midlands 19
Yorkshire 16
East Midlands 15
Wales 14
Northern Ireland 12
North East 7

The South East dominates with over 50 big winners, while London, North West England and Scotland are also EuroMillions hotspots. Northern Ireland, North East England, and Wales have fewer high tier wins. But the distribution shows luck can strike anywhere if your numbers come up!

Should I play EuroMillions tonight?

EuroMillions offers the chance to win mind-boggling riches beyond imagination. Even a share of the enormous jackpots would be life-changing. But should you actually play?

On the plus side, EuroMillions creates many multi-millionaires and provides funding for community projects across participating countries. Only needing to match two main numbers gives a reasonable chance of a small return. And who knows, your numbers could come up to win big.

However, the odds of winning the jackpot are microscopic, currently 1 in 140 million. Throwing money at 140 million to one odds is statistically unlikely to pay off. Less than 5% of ticket sales go towards prizes, while around 50% goes to ‘good causes’ such as the operator’s profits.

Ultimately, playing comes down to personal choice and sensibly weighing up the miniscule odds versus the dream of untold riches. Avoid spending beyond your means and don’t treat EuroMillions or other lotteries as a retirement plan. But an occasional ticket for fun is harmless for most people.


To summarize, the EuroMillions super jackpot was not won on Friday night. This means the top prize rolls over to an astonishing €210 million for the draw on Tuesday October 17th. It will become one of the biggest lottery jackpots of all time in Europe.

While no one scooped the jackpot, over 13 million players won prizes across the lower tiers. EuroMillions has now made over 300 millionaires in its history, and recently crowned the UK’s biggest ever winner with a €190 million jackpot.

Although playing EuroMillions is fun and thrilling, the odds are extremely long. Most players will never taste jackpot success. But for the lucky few who match all the numbers, the rewards are life-changing. Will the record €210 million end up going to you? Make sure to check your tickets after Tuesday’s massive draw.
