All the Sixes for Rollover Fans
Both the EuroMillions and Lotto games are currently in rollover mode and the estimated jackpots in each are packed with sixes. The jackpot for the EuroMillions lottery this Friday 8 July (which has rolled over 13 times in a row) will be worth around £166 million, and the jackpot for the Lotto game this Saturday 9 July has an estimated value of £6.6 million. Clearly, if your lucky number is 6 then you will be particularly keen to buy tickets for both draws!
Playing lucky numbers doesn’t increase your chances of winning a lottery jackpot one bit, but it doesn’t hamper your chances either, so if you happen to be someone who believes in destiny or fate, you won’t lose anything by choosing your numbers accordingly. Those of you who would rather allow lottery statistics to inspire your entries will want to note the following details:
- The most overdue main numbers in the EuroMillions game right now are 07, 43, 34, 32 and 18, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 07 and 10.
- The most overdue numbers in the Lotto game are currently 14, 49, 12, 33, 20 and 24.
The jackpot for the EuroMillions draw has reached its cap of €185 million, so if the jackpot isn’t won on Friday, the jackpot for the next draw on Tuesday will remain the same and all funds that would normally be added to the jackpot prize pool will instead roll down to the next prize tier that has at least one winner. In most cases that would be the second prize tier which requires players to match five main numbers and one Lucky Star number.
Of course, players everywhere will be hoping that the EuroMillions jackpot stops rolling in the next draw and drops its colossal fortune into their laps instead. Whenever the jackpot is won, it is a certainty that it will set a new record for the biggest EuroMillions jackpot of all time.
Will you be the player who goes down in the record books as the owner of the biggest EuroMillions jackpot ever? Buy your tickets today and you’ll soon find out! Good luck!
