EuroMillions Jackpot Reaches £48 Million
22nd May 2014 12:32 PM
The EuroMillions jackpot at stake in tomorrow’s draw is worth £48 million (€59 million) after the previous five draws failed to produce a top tier winner.
Although there have been no jackpot winners in the last four draws, ten ticket holders have narrowly missed out on winning the jackpot by just one number. The ten ticket holders matched all five main numbers plus one Lucky Star to secure a second tier prize, the largest of which was won by a lucky French player who scooped an impressive €1.5 million in last Friday’s draw after being the only winner in that tier.
Tomorrow night’s EuroMillions draw is expected to see an increase in ticket sales as there is a five times rollover jackpot up for grabs. The only way to be in with a chance of scooping the jackpot, or one of the many other prizes on offer, is to have a ticket for tomorrow night’s draw.
EuroMillions tickets can be purchased up until 19.30 BST / 20.30 CEST online via the Play EuroMillions page or from an authorised retailer in any of the participating European countries.
