Four Millionaire Chances in Two Days
Updated: Tuesday 22nd April 2014
Lottery players who fancy winning themselves millionaire status have four chances to do exactly that over the next two days. The first two chances come tonight (Friday 14 October) via the EuroMillions and Millionaire Raffle games. The EuroMillions jackpot rolled over on Tuesday of this week so the top prize tonight will be worth around £23 million and to win it you will need to match five main numbers from the range 1 to 50 and two Lucky Star numbers from the range 1 to 11. If that task proves too difficult then you might fare better in the Millionaire Raffle game, which is certain to pay out a cool £1 million to the lucky winner.
The odds of winning any prize at all in the EuroMillions game are 1 in 13, and if you buy yourself several tickets then those odds will be even better. That said, there is no reason to be too despondent if the prizes elude you tonight because you can have a go at two more big jackpots tomorrow night.
The Lotto game on Saturday 15 October will offer a triple rollover jackpot of around £14.4 million, which is more than the minimum jackpot offered by the EuroMillions game. As if that in itself isn’t enough of an incentive to play, the odds of landing the top prize in the Lotto game are 1 in 13.9 million, and if the jackpot escapes your grasp there are plenty of consolation prizes to be won by matching three or more main numbers.
Your fourth chance of becoming a millionaire in the next two days can be found in the Irish Lotto game tomorrow night. The jackpot for that game is heading towards the €5 million mark, and to win the top prize you need to select six numbers from the range 1 to 45 and match them all. The odds of doing that are 1 in 8.1 million, which makes the Irish Lotto jackpot one of the easiest to win – though of course you’ll still need your fair share of luck to do so!
Buy your lottery tickets today for the games mentioned (Millionaire Raffle entries are awarded automatically when you play EuroMillions in the UK) and you will have four chances of becoming a millionaire in the next two days (you will have even more chances if you buy several entries for one or more games). Good luck, and be sure to let us know if you make it happen!
