EuroMillions Superdraw this Friday!
Updated: Thursday 2nd October 2014
After months of patient waiting, the EuroMillions Superdraw game is almost upon us, and this Friday 3 October, lottery players across Europe and around the world will have the chance to win a guaranteed jackpot of €100 million. That should equate to around £77 million at current exchange rates, but if a British player were lucky enough to land the top prize outright we don’t think that he or she would quibble about the exact sum being a million or three either way. Whatever happens, one UK player is guaranteed to win £1 million on Friday in the associated Millionaire Raffle draw.
This Superdraw jackpot game had originally been scheduled to take place earlier this year, on Friday 6 June. That event was postponed due to an extended sequence of consecutive rollovers giving the EuroMillions jackpot a value of €107 million, which made the €100 million guarantee redundant. The good news is that we still get to play for the €100 million guaranteed, and we can now do so just in time for the 2014 Christmas shopping season!
Someone who is already set for the Christmas shopping bill this year is the owner of one ticket that matched all six main numbers in the midweek Lotto game to win a jackpot worth £1,265,065. The Lotto results on Wednesday 1 October were 01, 04, 05, 07, 18 and 47, and the Bonus Ball number was 06. There was one ticket that won a second tier prize worth £100,976 by matching five main numbers and the Bonus Ball, and more than 203,000 tickets won smaller prizes by matching five, four or three main numbers only. In addition, 50 tickets won their owners a Lotto Raffle prize of £20,000 each. The next Lotto game this Saturday will now offer a new jackpot with an estimated value of £4.1 million.
The Saturday Lotto jackpot will of course be exciting when the time comes, but right now it's hard to think about anything other than the Friday night EuroMillions Superdraw. Our lottery statistics page reveals that the most overdue main numbers right now are 50, 04, 38, 19 and 44, and the most overdue Lucky Star numbers are 05 and 02, so if you fancy including any of those on your tickets, feel free.
Whatever numbers you choose to play, head this way to enter your numbers online and you won't even need to leave the comfort of your own home to get involved. We are currently advising all players to buy their tickets as soon as possible to avoid the inevitable last-minute rush. Good luck, and we wish you a winning weekend!
