Tuesday EuroMillions Mega Jackpot
Updated: Thursday 24th April 2014
Tickets for the EuroMillions Mega Jackpot game this Tuesday 10 May are now available for purchase online. This will be the first ever Tuesday EuroMillions game and everyone is hoping that the Mega Jackpot of £85 million will help at least one person to mark the occasion with a massive win. To win that Mega Jackpot, or a share thereof, you now need to correctly match five main numbers from the range 1 to 50 and two Lucky Star numbers from the range 1 to 11. If luck is on your side and you manage that task (beating new odds of 1 in 116,531,800), you will soon be known as the person who won the first ever Tuesday EuroMillions jackpot in history!
Although we would all like to win the EuroMillions jackpot this Tuesday, we know from experience that predicting all of the numbers that will be selected by the lottery machines is far from easy. The good news for those of us who match a few of the numbers but not all of them is that there are now 13 prize tiers in total. The first 12 tiers are exactly the same as they always have been, but the 13th tier now pays a cash prize to players who match just two main numbers. Your odds of winning any prize at all with a single EuroMillions entry are now 1 in 13, which is a definite improvement on the 1 in 24 we were used to.
Many lottery players buy themselves more than one entry no matter what kind of jackpot is on offer, and even more make sure they buy several entries when there is a particularly large top prize up for grabs. It is therefore rather easy for us to predict that ticket sales for this first Tuesday EuroMillions Mega Jackpot draw will be higher than average, and that the number of EuroMillions prizes won should also increase as a consequence.
Those of you who like to enter your numbers for several draws in advance can now buy tickets for both Tuesday and Friday EuroMillions draws just as easily as you can buy tickets for both the Wednesday and Saturday Lotto games. However many tickets you purchase, good luck with the £85 million Mega Jackpot this Tuesday and be sure to drop us a line if you land the big one!Published: Monday 9th May 2011
