EuroMillions Superdraw set for 4th June offering £110 million Jackpot
Updated: Thursday 3rd June 2021
The date for the second EuroMillions Superdraw of 2021 has been set as the 4th June 2021, with a guaranteed starting jackpot of €130 million which equates to roughly £110 million. The exact amount for the UK might vary due to exchange rates, but the prize will definitely be over £100 million. The first superdraw of the year took place in February and ended up rolling over to the cap and set a new record for the highest ever EuroMillions win at €210 million.
Update: When the Superdraw was originally announced in April 2021 the jackpot amount was estimated to be £110 million, however this was increased to £112 million following the draw prior to the 4th June.
Game changes to EuroMillions in 2020 meant there would be more superdraws per year than ever before. This one will be the second of the year and will most likely be followed by two more taking place around September and December time. Each superdraw pushes the jackpot up over £100 million, with the chance for it to rise even higher in the case of multiple rollovers.
The superdraw does not mean that there is only one chance to win the huge first prize, as if no player matches all five numbers and two lucky stars then the prize amount will increase and rollover to the following draw. This can continue to happen until the jackpot cap is hit, which only took six draws in February 2021 and five in December 2020.
This will be the first superdraw in the UK in which players must be 18 years or older to play. These new rules were announced in March 2021 and start from 22nd April, meaning those that could previously play from the 16-year-old age limit will now have to wait.
EuroMillions records being broken
This is the fourth time that EuroMillions will have offered three jackpots in excess of £100million in the first half of the year, joining 2011, 2014 and 2019. The current EuroMillions jackpot has already risen to £58 million for Tuesday 20th April, so there is a chance that 2021 could set a record and offer four £100million jackpots in just 6 months.
Its actually the last two superdraws that have ended up crowning the two highest EuroMillions winners in history. In December 2020 the record was set for the first €200 million jackpot ever which was won by a single player from France. The record didn’t last long however, as the superdraw that took placed on 5th February 2021 rolled over to the new cap of €210 million, and was subsequently won by a single player from Switzerland. These two wins now means that the jackpot cap has increased to €220 million and, if history repeats itself, could be up for grabs a few weeks after 4th June.
This new jackpot amount would crown the biggest lottery winner in the UK by some margin, with the cap of €220 million equalling roughly £189 million. The current biggest winner in the history of the UK is an anonymous player who took home the £170 million “Must be Won” EuroMillions jackpot that took place in October 2019.Published: Tuesday 20th April 2021
