EuroMillions Superdraw 2008
Updated: Friday 25th April 2014
A EuroMillions Superdraw with a guaranteed jackpot of around £100 million takes place this Friday 26 September. If a single player wins this jackpot they will automatically beat the record set by Ireland’s Delores McNamara, who won an very impressive £77 million in July 2005.
EuroMillions Superdraws are so-called because the jackpot must be paid out. Obviously players will be hoping to match five main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers to scoop the jackpot itself, but if nobody achieves that feat (the chances of doing so are 1 in 76,275,360) then the jackpot rolls down to the next highest prize level that does have winning players.
That’s exactly what happened in the last two EuroMillions Superdraws. In February 2008 the jackpot rolled down to give 16 players £6.46 million each. And in September 2007, the jackpot rolled down to give 14 players £6.98 million each.
This is all very exciting stuff, because the odds of you matching five main numbers and just one Lucky Star are a much better 1 in 5,448,240. That’s even better than the odds of you winning the UK Lotto jackpot, and if the EuroMillions Superdraw jackpot rolls down, you could still become a multi-millionaire!
With less than 14 weeks to go until Christmas (yes, that means there are less than 90 shopping days left!) there really couldn’t be a better time to win a EuroMillions jackpot. If you won this Friday you could quit your job on Monday and focus on getting a new house and car in place for the festive season. Now that would be a season to be jolly!
Of course, every lottery player will be thinking very similar thoughts, so you can expect ticket queues to get fairly lengthy as the day of the draw approaches. We suggest that you avoid those queues by visiting your local retailer early or by buying your EuroMillions lottery tickets online.
However you proceed, have a great EuroMillions Superdraw this Friday and we wish you the best of luck!Published: Monday 22nd September 2008
