Lottery ticket frenzy as Euro Millions reaches record high

Euro MillionsEuro Millions: Lottery ticket frenzy as Euro Millions reaches record high

Rating:

By Todd Northrop

Europe's multi-country Euro Millions lottery game emerged from Tuesday night's drawing without a grand prize winner, setting the stage for a mammoth record jackpot Friday:  an estimated €185 Million (US$264.9 Million, or £166 million).

And Euro Millions jackpots are paid as cash — not advertised annuity jackpots like the big American multi-state games.

If a single ticket wins the top prize, it will create the biggest winner in Europe ever.

To win a Euro Millions jackpot, a player must match all five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers.  The five main numbers range from 1 to 50, and each Lucky Star number ranges from 1 to 11.

Tuesday's draw results were 11, 28, 29, 47, and 49, with Lucky Star numbers 1 and 5.

Euro Millions is currently available to players in Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Players outside those countries can consider using Lottery Post's recommended lottery ticket service in order to have a "butler service" buy Euro Millions lottery tickets on their behalf.  First-time users of the service basically play for free, as the service offers a refund credit equal to the first purchase order amount.

The current Euro Millions jackpot started as a €15 Million (US$21.1 Million) prize on May 24th, and has progressed for 13 consecutive drawings without a grand prize winner.

"This Euro Millions roll series alone has already contributed over £60 million to the massive £26 billion raised for the good causes since launch of The National Lottery nearly 17 years ago," according to a U.K. National Lottery spokesman.

On August 22, 2009, a single ticket won Italy's SuperEnalotto jackpot, which stood at 147,807,299.08 euros (£128.3 million at the time).  A single ticket winning Friday's Euro Millions drawing would far exceed that European record.

      This was in Wikipedia "All prizes, including the jackpot, are tax-free (except in Switzerland) and are paid in lump sum." so it looks that way. Man, $265m in the bank... I'd be happy with just my $10m I'm going after tonight.

       

      Good luck to those playing!

        I better tell the world in advance the numbers i played through the agent for this draw should be correct, as i consider my self expert in this field, and only one able to win with guarantee any lotto keno on earth with minimum 45 percent to spend on a jackpot-- say a 5 year period.

        The numbers I choose for this draw are just two blocks, both blocks are in the range of the total: 170-180 including the stars try your luck too and share my millions if you can guess total in hindi language: aeyk , in konkani language: sau (being the 3rd digit) and middle: in Danish language su spelt little wrong as to be striving to use the dictionary.

        I am just now a Dane in New Zealand.  Watch out : one lotto agent will prawl the winner was from Auckland. NZ. a Dane, who indeed will be skypekaitas6 memberane here.

                          stick with usa jackpots. you'd garner too much attention by winning that european one. realistically no one needs to win that much. headache city. better off knocking down one of the states avg. 3million megabucks type with no bonus number to match. those fly under the radar from the borrowers or expectors.
