EuroMillions Jackpot Races Past £140 Million

The largest EuroMillions jackpot of the year has continued its sharp upward curve after another rollover on Tuesday night. It has now powered its way up to £143 million (€163 million) and could be just a couple of weeks away from setting a new record.

Winning EuroMillions Numbers

The latest draw on Tuesday 9th February saw more than 2.5 million prizes won across Europe after the numbers 5, 10, 24, 31 and 37, with Lucky Stars 9 and 10, were selected.

One Belgian participant matched five main numbers plus one Lucky Star to win €934,794, while another eight ticket holders pocketed £17,682 (€27,309) in the Match 5 category. You can see a full breakdown of all the prizes won by going to the EuroMillions Results page.

The jackpot proved to be elusive, but that just means there will be another chance to win in the next draw and it will be worth even more.

How Has the Jackpot Got So Large?

It was last Friday’s Superdraw which set up this colossal jackpot. The top prize was increased to €130 million (£114 million) but rolled over on the night and has now grown yet again.

Superdraws only take place a few a few times a year - there were four in 2020 - and have helped to create some of the biggest payouts ever seen in EuroMillions. In the previous Superdraw, in November, the jackpot rolled over all the way from €130 million to €200 million before a French player matched all the numbers.

Jackpot Cap is €210 Million

The jackpot cap moved from €200 million to €210 million after the big French win, so the top prize can now climb beyond the previous high mark. At its current rate, it may only take four more rollovers to hit the new cap.

If the jackpot does reach €210 million, it can only stay at its maximum amount for four draws. In the fifth draw at this level the top prize must be won, and if there are no tickets that match all the numbers the jackpot money will instead go to players in the Match 5 + 1 Lucky star category.

There’s a good chance the jackpot will be won before it gets to €210 million, so make sure to take part now to give yourself an opportunity. You can’t win if you don’t enter.

Whether you choose random numbers, stick to your favourite line, base your selections on statistics or perhaps set up a syndicate, there are various strategies you can try to win the jackpot. Take part online or go to your nearest retailer for your chance to become the next big winner.
