Friday Fortune for EuroMillions Fans
EuroMillions fans will be playing for a fortune worth around £79 million in the next game this Friday, and everyone who intends to participate is advised to buy tickets early in order to avoid the inevitable last-minute rush. One midweek Lotto player was lucky enough to land themselves the £9.65 million jackpot last night, so maybe some of that luck will carry over for UK players in the EuroMillions game. And here’s some music for your ears – if one person lands the jackpot outright, the winner will be richer than Adele, Cheryl Cole, Craig David and Jessie J. combined!
The chance to win a fortune that leaves celebrity bank balances standing is one that few people will want to ignore, and retailers are already reporting a surge in demand for entries. That increase in demand looks certain to continue because anyone who enters their numbers for the next two Friday EuroMillions games will also be in with a chance of winning one of the Olympic Millionaire Raffle prizes on Friday 27 July. Even if playing two or more draws in advance isn’t your normal approach to the game, having the special Millionaire Raffle game on the same night as the Opening Ceremony of the Olympic Games makes it a very sensible thing to do.
Although winning a big-money jackpot isn’t something that every lottery player will get to experience, it can and does happen on a regular basis. To illustrate, the odds of anyone matching all of the main numbers in the midweek Lotto game are around 1 in 13.9 million, but last night (Wednesday 18 July) one player did just that. The numbers were 11, 26, 34, 38, 40 and 46, and within a matter of seconds a very modestly-priced ticket was suddenly worth £9,659,686.
We don’t know who the owner of that lucky ticket is just yet, but if they are aware of their win we are pretty sure that they will be very glad to have participated in the game. Now it could be your turn to beat the odds, and if you succeed in the EuroMillions game this Friday you could soon have even more reason to celebrate. Buy your tickets online here to be in with a chance of winning and good luck!
