Have Yourself a Very Mega Christmas!
Updated: Monday 21st December 2015
Christmas week is here at last, and as far as lottery players are concerned it promises to be something of a Mega Week, for several reasons. First, the Millionaire Maker game on both Tuesday and Friday will award five prizes of £1 million to UK EuroMillions participants, creating ten millionaires in total. In addition, players will have the chance to win the main EuroMillions jackpot itself, and then, on Wednesday, Lotto fans will be able to play for a multi-rollover jackpot worth a potentially record-breaking £35.1 million.
Whether or not the Lotto jackpot sets a new UK record on Wednesday depends on whether the prize can be landed by a single ticket. If just one entry matches all six main numbers in the midweek draw then the lucky owner will become the biggest Lotto winner in the history of the game, smashing the £22.5 million that was won by a single ticket in 1995. Whatever happens on Wednesday, one player is guaranteed to win a prize of £1 million in the associated Lotto Millionaire Raffle game, so someone who plays the Lotto will be having a memorable Christmas, that’s for sure.
Before we find out if someone will set a new Lotto record this week, five EuroMillions players will win £1 million each in the Millionaire Maker game on Tuesday. In addition, each Millionaire Maker winner will win a private chalet experience so that they can get accustomed to their new-found wealth in style, so if you fancy getting away from it all and enjoying true luxury, this is your chance.
The EuroMillions jackpot itself will be worth around £10 million on Tuesday, and that’s because a single ticket that had been purchased in Spain won the £60,657,149 that was up for grabs last Friday 18 December. The numbers which delivered that success were 06, 22, 26, 29 and 48, along with the Lucky Star numbers 05 and 06, and whilst the jackpot went to a Spanish ticket, UK entries landed over £4.43 million in consolation prize money. In addition, one UK ticket won £1 million by matching the Millionaire Maker code, which was ZVD730002.
With two massive Millionaire Maker games on Tuesday and Friday, a brand new EuroMillions jackpot to play for on Tuesday and a potentially record-breaking Lotto draw on Wednesday, Christmas week this year looks about as exciting as one could hope for. Buy your tickets early to avoid the queues and good luck with your numbers!Published: Monday 21st December 2015
