Since then, the top prize has swelled, as those all-important numbers continue to elude players week after week. Friday’s draw did see three players narrowly miss out on the jackpot after coming within one Lucky Star of claiming the prize, however, they were fortunate enough to walk away with £287,742 (€447,519) apiece. The draw also proved successful for two ticket holders who each scooped £1 million after matching one of the two Millionaire Maker codes.
The collective attention of EuroMillions players will now turn to this Tuesday draw, as every entrant aims to write their name in the history books by becoming the first jackpot winner of 2017. Lottery fans, who were forced to wait until the ninth draw of 2016 before a winner was crowned, will be hoping to stop this latest string of rollovers in its tracks and secure the eight-figure bounty.
A £76 million (€88 million) win would certainly allow anyone to live the high life. In fact, with so much money in the bank, any potential victor would find themselves catapulted ahead of the likes of Friends stars Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow (worth $60 million each) and singer-songwriters Pharrell Williams ($80 million) and Ed Sheeran ($60 million), while former US President Barack Obama, with a net worth of just $12.2 million, would surely be in awe of such a sum.
So, if you would like the chance to win this life-changing amount of cash, EuroMillions tickets are available to purchase online or from authorised retailers in any of the nine participating countries. Best of luck!
