This bumper jackpot will undoubtedly lead to many more people buying tickets, and whilst modern lotteries usually cope very well with high demand for tickets, things do sometimes go wrong with terminals. Because of this it is always more sensible to buy your tickets several days in advance than to risk waiting until the last minute. Our advice to all EuroMillions players is to buy tickets online, and to do so early.
Of course, there were plenty of people who won prizes in last Friday’s EuroMillions game even though the jackpot itself wasn’t won. 11 players matched five main numbers (06, 18, 20, 29 and 31) and one of the two Lucky Stars (02 or 08) to win €421,893 (around £388,468) and 15 other players won €71,835 (around £66,143) by matching the five main numbers only. In total, the EuroMillions game on Friday 23 October paid out more than 2.26 million prizes.
Once again, having a massive EuroMillions jackpot to play for will inspire players all over the world to start anticipating a possible life of almost unimaginable wealth. A jackpot win of €77 million would generate €3.85 in interest alone even if it were invested at a modest rate of 5%. It would therefore be possible to win the quad rollover jackpot and life the millionaire lifestyle without touching even one penny of the jackpot itself!
Will the quad rollover jackpot create a single €77 million winner? Will a handful of winners share the jackpot between them? And will you be one of the lucky ones? As always, the only way to find out is to play the game and wait for the EuroMillions results to be announced on Friday! Good luck!
