Two tickets scooped the second tier prize. Each ticket landed itself a total of € 510,269 by matching the five main numbers and a single lucky star number.
Another nine tickets matched the five main numbers, landing themselves either €26,564 or €37,798 depending on how they played their numbers and also, there were 35 tickets matching 4 main numbers and both lucky stars to win themselves either €3,415 or €4,860 each also depending on the manner of play, and a whooping 830 tickets won either €126 or €179 by matching the four main numbers and a lucky star.
