EuroMillions officials have been quick to confirm that the funds which would have been used to increase a smaller jackpot up to €100 million (£80 million) will be returned to the EuroMillions Reserve Fund. This fund receives 8.6% of the Common Prize Fund and is used to subsidise minimum jackpots and hold special events such as Superdraws.
While lottery officials have assured players that the funds will be used for future promotions, they have not yet revealed when this will happen or in what format. However, it’s possible that another Superdraw may be scheduled earlier than officials had previously planned and Euro-Millions.com will bring you the latest updates as they unfold.
If you’d like to compete for the £85 million (€105 million) jackpot on offer in Friday’s EuroMillions draw, tickets are available online and from authorised retailers. However, as the top prize is the third largest seen so far this year, participation is likely to be high so we advise players purchase their tickets ahead of time and avoid the last minute rush.
