Friday EuroMillions Pot of Gold

Friday EuroMillions Pot of Gold

The idea of finding a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow is one that most people have entertained at some point, and there are plenty of us who have enjoyed thinking about what we would do if we had all the money that we could ever want. Although finding a literal pot of gold isn't likely to happen, the Friday EuroMillions game this week will give all participants a chance of doing something that is even more incredible, and that is landing an estimated £128 million jackpot of cash that will instantly make the lucky winner one of the richest people in the kingdom!

Winning a lottery jackpot isn't easy, but it certainly isn't impossible, and proof of that can be found by looking at the results of the most recent midweek Lotto game. The jackpot on Wednesday 15 October was worth £2,059,716 and one player managed to win that sum outright by matching all six main numbers, which were 06, 19, 24, 26, 42 and 43. We don't know who that player is just yet, but we can guess that he or she probably viewed their chances of success as being rather slim before the draw took place. Yet that same player is now a millionaire twice over!

The Lotto jackpot winner wasn't the only player with something to celebrate on Wednesday night because a single ticket won a second tier prize worth £164,405 by matching five main numbers plus the Bonus Ball number 23. Another 98 tickets matched five main numbers only to win £1,424 each and more than 142,000 tickets won £103 or £25 each by matching four or three main numbers. In addition, there were 50 winners of £20,000 each in the Lotto Raffle game.

The success of players in the midweek Lotto game should be something that encourages anyone who likes the idea of pursuing the £128 million jackpot in the EuroMillions draw this Friday. Any player who buys just one ticket for the game will have a chance of winning the jackpot itself and a 1 in 13 chance of winning any prize at all. The same ticket will also give its owner a chance of winning a Millionaire Raffle prize of £1 million.

Of course, players who buy more than one ticket for the EuroMillions game this Friday will have an even greater chance of winning, with two tickets providing double the chance of winning, ten tickets providing a ten times greater chance of winning, and so on. Players who want to include one or more of the most overdue numbers on any of their tickets should consider the main numbers 37, 20, 41, 40 and 44, as well as the Lucky Star numbers 06 and 11.

Only one of two things can happen to the top prize on Friday night. Either the jackpot will be won by one or more tickets, or it will roll over to create an even bigger 'pot of gold' opportunity next week. Whatever happens to the jackpot itself, millions will be won in the form of consolation prizes, and one player will become a millionaire thanks to the Millionaire Raffle game. For your chance to be a winner in any of those respects, visit this page to buy your lottery tickets online and good luck!
