The Superdraw had been announced a few weeks ago, with €130 million (approximately £109 million) set to be put up for grabs. However, as the jackpot is already higher following a run of 11 draws without a winner, there is no need for the special draw. If there had been a winner on Tuesday, €130 million would still have been offered.
Only a few Superdraws have had to be postponed for this reason in EuroMillions history, and it could be that the special jackpot event will be rearranged for the near future. Superdraws are only scheduled in the first place when there is sufficient money in the Reserve Fund to stage such a promotion.
There has already been one Superdraw in 2022, when a UK player matched all the numbers to win £109 million on 4th February. The jackpot has now climbed past that value following a sequence of rollovers, setting up Friday’s draw to be even bigger than originally expected.
The jackpot was last won on Friday 18th March. There were two lucky ticket holders - one from Spain and one from France - who split €53 million. The top prize has grown rapidly over the last few weeks and is now heading towards the all-time top ten.
The jackpot will keep rolling over until it is won or until it reaches its limit. The cap currently stands at €230 million following the latest record win - a €220 million payout that went to a French ticket holder in October 2021.
It may only take a few more draws for the jackpot to hit its maximum amount, with ticket sales likely to surge as the top prize soars.
However, players across Europe will be hoping to land the top prize at the earliest opportunity this Friday. You need to purchase an entry to have a chance of winning, so take part online now or visit an authorised retailer in one of the participating countries.
