The chance of winning a standard EuroMillions jackpot of €15 million (around £12 million) on a typical Friday night is all well and good, but for those who prefer to get their fix of lottery excitement on an even bigger scale, Mega Jackpots are very hard to beat. The jackpot of €100,000,000 on Friday 1 October will be won by any ticket (or shared if there are several tickets) that match the five main numbers and the two Lucky Star numbers.
If nobody manages to win the jackpot (beating odds of 1 in 76,275,360) then the Mega Jackpot will roll over as a regular jackpot would under normal circumstances. Of course, few of us will want this to happen – most would prefer someone to land the Mega Jackpot on the night itself – but at least you would have another chance to win a week later if the top prize does prove elusive on its first outing.
We will bring you details of the most overdue numbers that you might want to consider playing in the EuroMillions Mega Jackpot draw closer to the time, but for now make a note of the draw in your diary to make sure that you don’t forget it.
And whilst we’re discussing the prospect of becoming the next Euromillionaire, why not play EuroMillions online for the game this Friday? Winning €15 million isn’t quite the same as winning €100 million, but it should certainly keep you busy for a while!
