£150m up for grabs in lottery draw

Your chance to become the second biggest lottery winner in UK history


An estimated £150 million is up for grabs tonight in the EuroMillions jackpot.

Nobody won on Tuesday, which has led to a rollover - meaning that if a single ticket-holder scooped the entire jackpot, they would become the second biggest National Lottery winner in the UK.

According to The Sunday Times Rich List 2014, if one winner claimed the entire £150 million jackpot they would be ranked the joint 607th richest person in Britain, alongside Eric Clapton and Sir Tim Rice.

How to boost your chances of winning big

The EuroMillions jackpot is now capped at 190 million euro. Subject to exchange rates this is an estimated £150 million.

Any prize money which would have boosted the jackpot above 190 million euro in tonight's draw will be passed down to the next prize-winning level, boosting the prizes to those winners, and potentially making multiple millionaires.

If no-one matches all five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers to win the jackpot then it will roll to next Tuesday's draw when it must be won, or it will roll down to the next winning prize tier.

From next week, EuroMillions will also be offering UK players the chance to win luxury prizes along with £1 million on the last Friday of every month.

As well as the jackpot prize on offer, the launch draw on October 31 will give players the chance to win one of 25 £1 million prizes, plus a private island getaway for themselves and seven others to Makepeace Island off Australia's Sunshine Coast.

A National Lottery spokeswoman said: "We've had two big EuroMillions winners here in the UK already so we've got our fingers crossed for a third big winner this Friday.

"No matter what happens to the jackpot in Friday's draw, next week promises to be hugely exciting for EuroMillions players here in the UK. There's a chance to win one of 25 guaranteed £1 million prizes and we'll be giving each winner a head start on the millionaire lifestyle with a once in a life time getaway to their own private island.

"As well as the chance to win life changing prizes, EuroMillions players also help contribute to the £33 million players raise for National Lottery projects every week.
