Monster EuroMillions Lottery Jackpot!
Updated: Friday 25th April 2014
A monster EuroMillions jackpot worth £110,000,000 is up for grabs this Friday 8 May, 2009 thanks to six consecutive rollovers. If a single UK player were to win this incredible amount, they would become the biggest National Lottery prize winner in Britain.
The current record for the biggest win in Britain is held by Angela Kelly of Glasgow, who won a massive £35.4 million by matching five main numbers and both Lucky Star numbers in the EuroMillions lottery draw of Friday 10 August, 2007. If a British player wins this Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot by getting similar lottery results they would win three times as much!
The biggest individual EuroMillions winner is Dolores McNamara of Ireland, who won £77 million on Friday 31 July, 2005. There have been bigger EuroMillions jackpots, but in those cases several players won and had to share the top prize equally.
If you find the idea of winning a EuroMillions jackpot worth £110,000,000 hard to imagine, then think of it like this: according to the Sunday Times Rich List 2009 you would immediately be richer than Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, actor Sean Connery and Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall. In fact, you’d only be £10 million poorer than Simon Cowell.
But that’s just for starters. If you put your £110 million in the bank and earned just 1% interest you would make an extra £1.1 million each year – that’s just over £3,000 per day, £21,000 per week or £90,000 per month, depending on how you prefer to look at it.
Queues for tickets for last Friday’s EuroMillions draw were lengthy, so this week we can expect them to be even longer. We would advise all EuroMillions players to buy their tickets as early as possible, and to buy lottery tickets online. Then sit back, cross your fingers and hope for the best. Who knows, this could be the last week you ever need to work for the rest of your life!Published: Monday 4th May 2009
