EuroMillions Jackpot Increases to £143 Million
21st October 2014 10:04 AM
Tonight’s EuroMillions jackpot is worth an estimated £143 million (€180 million) due to the last five draws resulting in rollovers. However, the month of October has still been good to EuroMillions fans - millions of players have won prizes since a planned Superdraw on Friday 3rd October kick-started the rollover streak.
For a breakdown of all the details from the most recent draw held on Friday 17th October, visit the Results page.
The jackpot cap, as instituted in early 2012, is right on the horizon - if no one wins it tonight, then the jackpot for Friday 24th October will certainly be worth a mind-blowing €190 million. If two draws at the jackpot cap fail to produce a top-tier winner, then the prize amount will be rolled down to the next winning tier. While some might be happy with winning a few million simply because they were in the highest prize tier, others might be frustrated that they didn’t manage to scoop the lot for themselves.
The first and last time the jackpot cap was reached was in August 2012, when Adrian and Gillian Bayford of Suffolk matched five main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win an astonishing £148.6 million (€190 million). Hitting the ceiling, so to speak, is a very real possibility this week unless someone wins the top prize tonight.
There’s still time to grab your tickets and put a couple pounds towards the idea of fulfilling your wildest dreams - simply click on the Play EuroMillions tab to buy tickets online or pay a visit to an authorised retailer if you’re ready to face the inevitable - and massive - queues that will build up before sales close at 7.30pm BST (8.30pm CEST) tonight. Good luck!
