Once in every 25 years would mean once in every 1,300 drawings (25 x 52 drawings/year).
Once in every 1,300 drawings, in turn, would mean that, in any given reset drawing, the probability of 12 consecutive rollovers is .000769(=1/1,300) or roughly .08%.
Looking backwards, which means 'based on the actual ticket sales for the past 11 drawings and the expected ticket sales for this Friday drawing, I see the probability of Euro Millions' 12 consecutive rollovers being just .01%, much lower than .08%.
ASSSUMING that .01% is correct and all things would remain unchanged, one might expect 12 consecutive Euro Millions rollovers, on average, once in every 190 years ((1/.0001)/52).
