EuroMillions Jackpot Surges Past £100 Million

EuroMillions Jackpot Surges Past £100 Million

A run of rollovers in August has sent the EuroMillions jackpot racing past the £100 million (€120 million) mark, creating another colossal prize in a record-breaking year.

The jackpot was last won on Friday 29th July, when a player from Switzerland matched all the numbers to land CHF40 million (€41 million). 

It reset to €17 million in the subsequent draw and has proved to be out of everyone’s reach for the past month, although there have still been millions of winners at lower levels. Go to the EuroMillions Results page to see what has been happening.

The jackpot will continue to grow until it is won or until it hits its upper limit, which now stands at €240 million.

What Will Happen to the Superdraw?

A EuroMillions Superdraw is scheduled for Friday 9th September, with €130 million (approximately £110 million) set to be put up for grabs.

The Superdraw will still go ahead as planned if the current jackpot is won before 9th September. If there’s no winner, the current jackpot will continue on its natural track, boosted by the revenue from ticket sales. The top prize would never be lowered to fit in with a previously advertised value.

If the €130 million Superdraw does not happen as planned, it is likely that another one would be organised for the near future. 

It has already been a year of huge jackpots, topped by the record £195 million (€230 million) that was won by a UK player on Tuesday 19th July. Joe and Jess Thwaite, also from the UK, had previously won £184 million (€215 million) in May. 

You can try to become the next big winner now by taking part in the next draw. Visit an authorised retailer in one of the participating countries, or get involved online.
