EuroMillions Jackpot Countdown
The EuroMillions jackpot countdown has begun as far as lottery players are concerned, and in less than 24 hours time somebody somewhere could be £126 million richer than they are right now. The jackpot could be won by an individual, in which case that person would be one of the richest people around, or it could be won by a syndicate, in which case each of the syndicate members could still be multi-millionaires. Of course, the jackpot could possibly roll over yet again, but even in that case someone will still win £1 million thanks to the Millionaire Raffle game.
With such a huge amount of cash on offer in the EuroMillions game tonight, as well as £4.1 million more up for grabs in the Lotto game on Saturday 10 September, offline lottery retail outlets are bracing themselves for an extremely busy period as the ticket sales deadline gets ever-closer.
Those of you who buy your lottery tickets online won’t notice those crowds, and you also won’t risk losing your entries. Sadly, losing entries and missing out on substantial prizes is something that happens all too frequently to offline players. As if to demonstrate that fact, just this week three big lottery prizes have expired unclaimed. One, which expired on Monday 5 September, was a Lotto prize worth £205,495, and the other two, which both expired on Wednesday 7 September, were Lotto Plus 5 prizes worth £250,000 each.
Now we probably all agree that failing to claim a lottery prize worth around £250,000 is bad news, so just imagine how bad it would be to miss out on a lottery jackpot just because you accidentally threw out a small piece of paper with your winning numbers on them. Our advice is to avoid that risk completely by purchasing your lottery tickets online and checking the lottery results on a regular basis.
Buy your lottery tickets now for tonight’s EuroMillions game and if you are lucky enough to win the £126 million jackpot outright, be sure to claim that prize as soon as possible! Good luck!
