Euromillions December 2004

Two Euromillions-Jackpots for christmas

The Christmas season is the most beautiful time of the year for many people. This is certainly true for two lucky winners, who were able to win at Euromillions in December 2004. A Frenchman cracked the Euromillions Jackpot seven days before Christmas on December 17 and received a fat 26,215,627 euros – more than enough money to buy all gifts for the celebration of love.

His lucky numbers were 15, 19, 22, 46 and 49, as well as lucky star 2 and 9. Disguise in blessing was it for the winner on December 24th, 2004 at the 46th Euromillions draw. Since the jackpot had already been cracked in the previous week, he only received the minimum amount of ten million euros. On the other hand, there are truly worse fates than to win a double-digit million sum on Christmas Eve.

This time the jackpot went to Spain. The winning numbers were 3, 4, 27, 29, 37 as well as lucky star 5 and lucky star 6. In the three other December draws, which took place on December 3, 10 and 12, the highest profit class remained untouched. Thus the jackpot could be cracked thirteen times in the first year of the Euro millions. In 2004, the multinational lottery distributed in the highest winning class – five correct numbers and two real luck stars – around 290 million euros. Almost half of the jackpot winnings – namely six – went to France.
