EuroMillions Jackpot Hits £42 Million (€58 Million)
24th February 2015 10:37 AM
EuroMillions enthusiasts will be competing for a £42 million (€58 million) jackpot tonight, an amount not seen recently due to a rather productive winning streak that began in January of this year. The current EuroMillions top prize has eluded the grasp of players since Tuesday 3rd February, when a French ticket holder picked up an £11.3 million (€15 million) windfall.
This has been the longest stretch of rollovers the game has seen since 11th November 2014, when a series of six rollovers started and finally ended with one French player snapping up £57.8 million (€72.9 million) on Tuesday 2nd December 2014.
No matter what happens tonight, this is the start of an exciting few days for EuroMillions. The bumper top prize on offer this evening will be followed by Mega Friday later this week, in which ten UK players will each win £1 million and a luxurious trip to South Africa when they match the winning Millionaire Maker codes drawn on the night.
On Friday 6th March, a planned Superdraw will offer a fixed jackpot of €100 million (estimated sterling value of £73.1 at the time of writing). These special editions of EuroMillions always attract a significant amount of attention, with ticket sales exploding in the days before the draw. If you were bracing yourself for the cost of buying scores of tickets for the Superdraw, never fear - Euro-Millions.com is holding a competition in which a lucky winner will pick up 100 tickets for the game on Friday 6th March as well as £500 in holiday vouchers. Have a look at the Superdraw Tickets competition page to learn more.
However, there’s still tonight’s top prize to play for before a week of incredible events kicks off. If you think that today will be your lucky day, grab your EuroMillions tickets now by visiting the Play EuroMillions page or by visiting one of the countless authorised retailers located throughout participating countries. You’ve got until 7.30pm GMT (8.30pm CET) tonight to take part in the fun. Good luck!
