Massive Jackpot and 25 £1 Million Prizes in Store for EuroMillions Fans
Updated: Wednesday 21st February 2018
Friday’s EuroMillions draw is set be a spectacular occasion, with a monumental jackpot of £154 million up for grabs in addition to 27 chances to win £1 million in the UK and European Millionaire Maker draws.
There is yet to be a EuroMillions jackpot winner this year, meaning that the top prize has now rolled 15 times to reach a gigantic £154 million. The last ticket holders to taste top tier EuroMillions success were a family syndicate from Dublin in Ireland who snapped up £34.5 million on Friday 29th December 2017.
The most recent EuroMillions draw, on Tuesday 20th February, produced the winning numbers 6, 14, 19, 25 and 29 with Lucky Stars 5 and 11. Although no one took first prize, four of the six Match 5+1 winners were from the UK, each collecting £169,512. Find the full prize breakdown at the EuroMillions Results page.
Friday’s jackpot is the largest since a Spanish player won £170.9 million on Friday 6th October and, if you are the only player to pick up the full amount this week, you will become the UK’s third biggest lottery winner ever.
UK Millionaire Maker
As ever, Friday’s draw will feature two UK Millionaire Maker prizes of £1 million. Every EuroMillions line bought generates a raffle code on your ticket. If your combination matches one of those drawn in full, you win the seven-figure sum.
Only codes generated for that game are entered into the draw, meaning two millionaires will definitely be created in this country. The winning Millionaire Maker codes for Tuesday night were VKTR 07620 and VKTR 64460, and you can find out more about how the supplementary draw works at the Millionaire Maker page.
European Millionaire Maker
European Millionaire Maker is an occasional Europe-wide draw that guarantees a set number of prizes will be won in a specific draw. This Friday 23rd February, there are 25 awards of £1 million on offer. The European Millionaire Maker prize in Euro countries is worth €1 million (around £884,000), but UK players who win this raffle-style game have that amount boosted to a round £1 million.
Although the prizes are likely to be spread across the continent, each entry has as much chance of winning as any other, no matter where is was bought. This means that, with UK Millionaire Maker included, you have 27 shots at becoming a millionaire, in addition to the jackpot, to kick off the weekend in style!
Buy EuroMillions Tickets
With so many opportunities to win big this Friday, you need to buy EuroMillions tickets before 7:30pm on the day of the draw. Get hold of them at retailers across the nine participating nations.
An alternative to buying EuroMillions tickets in-store is to choose your numbers online.
