Superdraw Set for 2nd December
The Superdraw will take place on Friday 2nd December, with a jackpot of €130 million (approximately £112 million) set to be offered.
It will be the fourth jackpot event of its kind to take place this year, following similar draws in February, June and September. A Superdraw was also scheduled to be held in April, but had to be postponed as the jackpot had already climbed naturally to more than €130 million.
Superdraws work the same way as regular draws, but the big difference is that the advertised jackpot is guaranteed. No rollovers are required to build up the €130 million prize. Even if there is a winner in the draw immediately before 2nd December, the jackpot will still be boosted to the set amount.
If nobody wins the Superdraw on the night, the jackpot will roll over to the next draw and an even larger amount will be put up for grabs. The jackpot can quickly rise from there, potentially towards record-breaking territory.
Over the last couple of years, Superdraws have helped to create many of the biggest wins in EuroMillions history. After there was no winner in June’s big draw, the jackpot rapidly increased until someone from the UK matched all the numbers on 19th July to scoop €230 million (£195 million) - the largest amount ever seen in EuroMillions.
Following that win in July, the jackpot cap was lifted from €230 million to €240 million. If December’s Superdraw ends in a rollover and the top prize keeps pushing upwards, a new record could beckon around Christmas time.
20 Millionaires on 4th November
Before the Superdraw, UK players will have a better chance of becoming a millionaire than normal in the EuroMillions draw on Friday 4th November, with 20 prizes of £1 million set to be paid out.
The UK Millionaire Maker guarantees that one ticket holder in the country will win £1 million in every standard draw, but occasionally the National Lottery holds special draws where multiple players are rewarded.
You are automatically entered into the Millionaire Maker when you buy a EuroMillions ticket in the UK. A random code - with four letters and five numbers - is generated for you for each line you play. If you match the winning code exactly, with every character in the same place, you receive £1 million.
The odds of winning are based on how many tickets are sold so they are different in every draw, but with 20 winning codes to be selected on 4th November there will be far more opportunities than usual.
Whether you’ve got your sights set on becoming a millionaire on 4th November, or you are dreaming of the Superdraw jackpot on 2nd December, you need to take part to give yourself a chance of winning.
