The size of jackpot on offer in tonight’s draw has not been seen since Tuesday 11th October 2016, when a Belgian man landed an unbelievable prize worth €168 million (£153.3 million). It is a total that has certainly sparked a feel-good frenzy amongst participants in all nine participating countries as players dare to dream that this really could be their lucky night.
Every entrant into the draw will feel that they stand a good chance of success, while a win would also help bolster their homeland’s position on the winners’ table. Ticket holders in France, Spain and the UK will be hoping to add to their nations’ tally of victories in the pan-European lottery, while hopefuls from Portugal will be praying that, in a 10-month period that has seen their country scoop the European Championship title and the Eurovision crown, luck will be on their side.
There will also be plenty of interest from Belgium, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg and Ireland, with the latter eyeing a big win to push their total EuroMillions winnings beyond the €1 billion mark. “There is nothing we would like better than to welcome our 11th EuroMillions winner into our famed Winners Room in National Lottery headquarters after Tuesday’s jackpot...this is really grabbing the imagination of our players who are dreaming that they could be the ones to have this life-changing win,” he added.
The jackpot’s immense size is certainly expected to inspire people into taking part in tonight’s draw, with ticket terminals predicted to be heaving across the continent all day. If you would like to avoid the queues, you can pick your numbers online ahead of the draw and secure your chance of winning this sizeable, eight-figure sum. Best of luck!
