EuroMillions may make a multi-millionaire of somebody tonight as it’s all to play for in this £14million jackpot prize. EuroMillions can be played online or you can buy slips in your local supermarket or newsagents. All you have to do is choose five numbers from one to 50 and two Lucky Stars from one to 12. The good thing about EuroMillions is that every player is automatically entered into the Millionaire Maker code draw too, meaning there’s an extra chance to win £1million. Choose to play on a Tuesday or Friday – or both – and then the number of weeks you would like to play. But remember – if you’re playing on draw day you’ll need to have bought your ticket before 7.30pm or you’ll be entered into the next draw.
A EuroMillions jackpot of £59million was recently claimed by a Brit in what is the third UK jackpot won this year.
The mystery winner came forward to take home the staggering win on April 20, with EuroMillions’ UK parent company Camelot reportedly assessing the ticket.
The ticket matched all the winning numbers of the draw, which were 5, 17, 28, 41 and 46.
The winning Lucky Stars were 10 and 11.
Andy Carter, senior winners’ advisor at the National Lottery said: “What amazing news for this lucky ticket-holder who has claimed their amazing EuroMillions jackpot prize.
“We will now focus on supporting the ticket holder through the process and on helping them to start to enjoy their life-changing win.”
Once the ticket has been validated and paid, the ticket-holder will decide whether or not they want to go public and share the news with the world.
Earlier this month, another lucky Brit took home £122million, making them the recipient of the fifth-biggest National Lottery prize in the UK’s history.
Camelot validated and paid out the prize of £122.5million, the jackpot from an April 2 EuroMillions draw.
Unless the winner signs an agreement for full publicity, no further information can be released about their win.
