Players in the UK have a better chance than usual to become a millionaire in the monthly Mega Friday draws, which also give away a special non-cash reward as well as the seven-figure windfall typically offered. Tonight’s ten guaranteed winners will each get to jet off on an exotic two-week holiday to either Bali, Thailand or the Maldives, where they will stay with a guest in a luxury resort. The five-star accommodation will come complete with a private pool, giving the winner a taste of the high life they can expect to enjoy from now on.
There were more than 1.5 million prize winners in the last draw on Tuesday, showing that you don’t have to land the jackpot or Millionaire Maker to fall in love with EuroMillions. Eight participants - including two from the UK - matched five main numbers plus one Lucky Star last time out to each claim £92,390 (€118,789), and you can check out the full prize breakdown in the EuroMillions Results section.
There is still time to get hold of a ticket before tonight’s draw, and you can enter online or by visiting any authorised retailer in one of the participating countries. Just make sure to find out if you are a winner afterwards, unlike the poor player from Leicester who just missed out on making a cool £1 million. The ticket holder had won a Millionaire Maker prize in the draw on 23rd December, but National Lottery bosses announced this week that the money would now go to help good causes after the six-month deadline to claim the money passed.
