Fifteen New Euromillionares
Once again, the Tuesday Euromillions (read more) draw has rolled over, with no ticket winning the £48,962,688 jackpot. This puts Friday’s estimated jackpot at a staggering £60 million. Despite the fact nobody won the top amount, the sound of champagne corks will still be popping at addresses across the UK this morning, all thanks to a special Millionaire Raffle promotion with 15 winners instead of the usual one.
Usually, the Euromillions draw creates two UK millionaires a week, one on Friday and one during the new Tuesday draw. The last Super Raffle took place on Christmas Eve, where 25 Euromillionaires were created in a record-breaking bonanza.

To promote the draw, members of the public have spent the week being treated to a millionaire lifestyle to give them a glimpse of what life on the rich side might be like. Verity Gwilliam went for a spin in a V10 Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. Lottery hopeful Sam Patterson was pampered with a makeover, butler and champagne after she went to purchase a ticket from her newsagent.
To play the UK Millionaire Raffle is easy. Every time a line is purchased on the Euromillions, a unique raffle number is automatically generated. There is no extra cost and the draw usually takes place before the main EuroMillions. The raffle number consists of nine digits --- three letters and six numbers, like this: MWG128846.
Of course, there is always the chance that potential Euromillionaires might miss out on their share of the cash by not checking their tickets. Make sure this doesn't happen by buying lottery tickets online here. The next Euromillions takes place on Friday, with an incredible £60 million jackpot to be won. Buy now to be in with a chance of becoming fabulously wealthy.
