Just in case anyone was interested in knowing how Euro Millions had such a huge rollover at a low jackpot level. I found this on the website of the UK National Lottery.
"This Friday is EuroMillions' 3rd birthday and to celebrate, we've increased the jackpot to a massive £66* million!
It has to be won because it can't roll over so if no one matches five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers, the jackpot amount will roll down to the next winning prize level.
Someone has to win so celebrate EuroMillions' 3rd birthday with us, and with a bit of luck, you'll have 66 million reasons to celebrate yourself.
*Estimated jackpot. If the jackpot is not won, it will roll down to the next winning prize level."
So just because it was the 3rd birthday, they increased the jackpot by a huge amount!!! I hope they are right about the sales to justify such a huge rollover.
