Biggest Sterling Jackpot
This EuroMillions draw produced the biggest jackpot in Euros to date. However it wasn't the largest Sterling jackpot to be created as the amount won by Colin and Christine Weir in July 2011 was a staggering £161,653,000. These two jackpot wins are now two of the biggest ever EuroMillions top prize wins in the history of this pan-European lottery game.
The Euromillions jackpot won by Colin and Chris Weir in July 2011 reached these heady heights after 12 rollovers failed to find a winner who matched 5 main numbers and 2 Lucky Stars. By the 13th week the prize pool reached the Euromillions Jackpot Cap meaning that it could not go any higher than the €185 million that was won on 12th July 2011. The 13th week also failed to find a jackpot winner and "rolled again" for a 14th time to draw number 397 where the single UK winner was found.
