Excitement Surges Ahead of Tonight's EuroMillions Draw
Attention is firmly focused on tonight’s EuroMillions draw as there is a huge £95 million jackpot to play for. This impressive top prize is due to the jackpot eluding players for the previous ten draws.
With such a large jackpot at stake, all eyes will be on tonight’s draw to see if any ticket holders can strike it lucky and secure this life-changing prize. If any player successfully matches all seven numbers drawn this evening, they will win the third largest jackpot seen so far this year. One Spanish player and another French player shared the largest jackpot seen this year, worth £108 million, after they both successfully matched all seven numbers from the draw on 7th January. The second largest jackpot was won by UK mechanic Neil Trotter who became £107 million richer by matching the jackpot winning numbers from the draw on 14th March.
While Trotter’s win was the fourth largest jackpot ever won in the UK, it stands some way off the largest EuroMillions jackpot prizes won. Currently the UK is home to both the largest and second largest jackpots won in EuroMillions history; the largest is worth £161 million and was won by Chris and Colin Weir from Scotland and the second largest is worth £148 million and was won by Adrian and Gillian Bayford in August 2012.
In the event a single UK ticket holder clinches tonight’s ten times rollover jackpot, they would be 921st on The Sunday Times Rich list and would sit £21 million ahead of footballer Wayne Rooney who is likely to gain his 93rd cap for England in their first World Cup game on Saturday.
Due to the size of the jackpot, ticket sales for tonight’s draw are likely to be high so we would advise anyone who has yet to purchase a EuroMillions ticket for tonight’s draw to do so without delay.
EuroMillions tickets can be purchased online through the Lottery Tickets page or in person from an authorised retailer. Ticket sales close at 19.30 BST and the results will be available on the EuroMillions Results page from 20.30 BST so check back then to see if you’ve matched a winning combination.
