Excitement Grows as EuroMillions Rolls Again
23rd June 2011 10:29 AM
Just when you think that the EuroMillions lottery game couldn’t possibly get any more exciting, it does exactly that. Yes, you’ve guessed it, the EuroMillions jackpot rolled again on Tuesday so the jackpot for the game this Friday 24 June is a whopping €119,000,000, which is around £105,000,000. There have now been nine consecutive rollovers – something that hasn’t happened since 2005 – and we can almost certainly put that down to the rule change which took place last month.
The biggest EuroMillions jackpot on record was worth €183 million, so there is still some way to go before that record is broken. Of course, now that there are two more Lucky Star numbers than there used to be, it is statistically more likely that the EuroMillions game will set a brand new record for the biggest jackpot at some point. Whether the current run of rollovers is one that will eventually break the €183 million mark remains to be seen.
Obviously, everyone who buys lottery tickets for the next EuroMillions draw this Friday 24 June will be hoping that their numbers stop the jackpot from rolling any further. Matching five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers is ‘all’ that it takes to win the jackpot, and that means anyone who treats themselves to an entry has a chance of celebrating a €119 million win this Friday night.
The multi-rollover jackpot is now so large that even if there were several winners, each one could win more than they would in a game with a regular-sized EuroMillions jackpot. For example, if five tickets won the jackpot this Friday, each winning ticket would be worth around €23.8 million, which is €8.8 million more than the €15 million offered in a standard non-rollover draw. And if fewer tickets were to share the spoils then each winning ticket would be worth even more!
Will the EuroMillions jackpot roll again or will fate select someone – maybe even you – to win €119 million outright? Buy your EuroMillions lottery tickets online today and you’ll soon find out!
