Will You Win a Royal Jackpot?

The British royal wedding this Friday 29 April between Prince William and Catherine Middleton will, according to estimates, be watched on television by around 2 billion people. It seems that interest in this Royal Wedding is not confined to just the UK , or to Europe , but is present to some extent in virtually every developed country on the planet. We mention all of this here because many EuroMillions players will be treating themselves to an extra ticket or two in an effort to win themselves a ‘royal’ jackpot of around €15 million (around £13 million) on the very same day.

Buying extra lottery tickets as a form of celebration is nothing new, and EuroMillions players often do just that for Christmas, Easter, birthdays and anniversaries. Indeed, some players actually buy tickets on behalf of other people and give them as gifts. Whilst buying additional tickets to celebrate a major royal wedding is less common, that is only because major royal weddings are few and far between.

What makes the coming royal wedding so special – and therefore worth celebrating with a few extra tickets – is the fact that one day Prince William will be King. His father, Prince Charles, is likely to take the throne before that happens, but that doesn’t lessen the importance of this wedding in the least.

Because the royal wedding this Friday will be watched on television by people all over the globe, anyone who wants to buy EuroMillions tickets offline on the day could well be in for a long wait. Our advice therefore, as always, is for you to purchase your EuroMillions tickets online and to do so as soon as possible. This will enable you to enjoy the royal wedding celebrations fully (or to hide away from them if royal weddings aren’t your thing) safe in the knowledge that you have already secured your EuroMillions entries.

We here at EuroMillions.com hope that William and Kate have a great wedding day and we wish them all the best for the future. And as for all the EuroMillions players out there, we wish you the very best of luck in winning yourself a ‘royal’ jackpot this Friday!
