22:00 - Thank you for joining us for the live updates from tonight’s €190 million draw; join us again on Friday as we do it all again for the next €190 million draw.
21:53 - The full results from tonight’s draw, including prize breakdowns for each country, are available on the results page.
21:37 - There were more than 3.4 million winning tickets in tonight’s draw. The biggest winners were the seven players who matched five numbers and one Lucky Star. Thanks to the jackpot cap and resulting rolldown, they each won £1.7 million / €2.2 million. Five of these lucky players came from the UK, while the other two came from Spain.
21:15 - Don’t be too disappointed that Friday’s Superdraw has been postponed; the current €190 million jackpot is guaranteed to be won in the next two draws. Never before in the history of EuroMillions could that be said. The jackpot will either get won on Friday or it will roll over to Tuesday 8th when a Must Be Won draw will take place.
21:02 - We’ll bring you updates about the biggest winners from tonight’s draw as the results come in from the participating countries. While the jackpot was not won, seven players from across Europe have matched five main numbers plus one of the Lucky Stars to become multimillionaires.
20:56 - The jackpot has NOT been won - the rollover train continues into the 22nd draw! The jackpot will remain at €190 million for Friday’s draw and the scheduled Superdraw will be postponed.
20:51 - The winning UK Millionaire Maker code is HTHM18462. Check the code on your ticket; if it matches the winning one exactly you’re £1 million richer.
20:45 - We should have word of whether the jackpot has been won or not in the next 15-20 minutes – keeping our fingers crossed.
20:17 - The winning numbers have been drawn. They are 2, 11, 18, 40 and 46, with Lucky Stars 1 and 4. Use the Results Checker for the fastest way to find out if you’re a winner.
20:00 - Tonight’s draw will get underway any minute now. Keep refreshing this page to see the winning numbers as soon as they’re in.
19:45 - To pre-empt your next question: what happens if the jackpot isn’t won tonight? In that instance:
- the jackpot will remain at €190 million for Friday’s draw;
- Friday’s Superdraw will be postponed;
- the money that is planned to boost the jackpot to €100 million for the Superdraw will be held in reserve;
- another special event – probably a Superdraw but not necessarily – will take place in the near future; and
- a Must Be Won draw could potentially still go ahead on 8th October.
The dream scenario is that the jackpot is won tonight so Friday’s Superdraw can go ahead. You never know, if that happened another €190 million jackpot would only be a few rollovers away.
19:40 - This week could be a record-breaking week for EuroMillions players. Not only is there €190 million up for grabs in tonight’s draw, there is also a Superdraw scheduled to take place on Friday 4th October, offering a guaranteed jackpot of €100 million. That means jackpot prize money totalling €290 million could be won by the weekend; it would be the first time in EuroMillions history that such an amount would be won in one week.
19:30 - Ticket sales are now closed. The draw will take place in around half an hour.
19:15 - If the jackpot isn’t won before, that vital rolldown draw will take place on Tuesday 8th October. Put the date in your diary.
19:10 - Tonight’s draw is the third at the cap and rules state that it can only go a maximum of five draws before it must be won. In that fifth draw, all the prize money will be given away, even if no one matches all five numbers and both Lucky Stars. If no one does match all the numbers, the prize money will be split between players in the second tier – that’s on top of the prize money they would usually get.
18:52 - Those prizes were much bigger than usual because the jackpot has hit its cap of €190 million. As the top prize can’t increase any more, any further funds that would have usually gone towards increasing the jackpot are instead used for a ‘rolldown’ to boost the prizes in the second tier. That has resulted in prizes worth around 15 times more than they are usually worth.
18:45 - There have been plenty of big winners in recent draws. In the last one on Friday 27th September, four players matched five numbers and one Lucky Star – just one Lucky Star off the jackpot. They will have been very pleased nevertheless, as they took home prizes worth over £3.5 million / €4.6 million each.
18:36 - The lesson is, folks, check your tickets thoroughly, including for any associated draws or raffles. Imagine how you’d feel if you discovered you’d lost out on £1 million because you didn’t check your tickets. See this useful How to Claim guide if you think you have won something and want to know what to do next.
18:30 - Speaking of unclaimed prizes, there are currently five Millionaire Maker prizes of £1 million set to expire before the year’s end. The soonest deadline is 27th October, after which a prize of £1 million won in the draw on 30th April will expire.
Andy Carter, the Senior Winners Advisor at the National Lottery, said: “We’re urging everyone to check their old tickets one final time or look anywhere a missing EuroMillions ticket could be hiding. This life-changing prize could really help to make dreams become a reality for someone out there.”
18:24 - If you win tonight’s jackpot you probably won’t waste any time claiming it, but it’s worth knowing how long you have to do so. The claim period differs by country, from 60 days in France and Luxembourg to a full three years in Austria. In the UK you have 180 days. The Rules page shows the claim period for each participating country.
17:50 - Make sure you don’t leave it until the last minute to get your tickets. Over 55 million entries were bought in stores and online for the last draw on Friday 27th September; don’t let queues or technical issues undo your chance of becoming one of EuroMillions’ biggest ever winners.
17:15 - A few things you should know. Firstly, ticket sales close at 7.30pm UK time so you’ll want to have your entry in hand before then. The draw will take place at around 8.00pm, with the winning numbers being confirmed right here soon after. At around 9.00pm we’ll know if there has been a jackpot winner or if we can expect another draw at the jackpot cap.
17:00 - We’ll talk about jackpot caps and rolldowns a little later, but in the meantime if you want to know how it all works, this article will tell you what happens next.
16:45 - The jackpot is at its cap for the third draw running, which, if you didn’t already know, is a pretty big deal. Not only could a record-breaking jackpot be won tonight, but it will be the third draw in a row where you could become a millionaire without even matching all the numbers.
16:00 - It has been quite the summer in the world of EuroMillions, with a record-breaking run of rollovers leading up to tonight’s €190 million jackpot. We’re nearly at the point where the jackpot literally must be won; will tonight be the big night?
