Euromillions enters final week

15 Nov 2006

HARROGATE, England – (PRESS RELEASE) -- confirms that the Euromillions jackpot for Friday, 17 November will be worth around €180,000,000 (approximately $228 million or £121 million) as it enters the twelfth week since the last time anyone won the top prize. Under Euromillions rules, the jackpot is not allowed to roll over 12 times, so if nobody wins the top prize this Friday by matching five main numbers plus two Lucky Star numbers, the €180 million will be distributed to those who match five main numbers and just one Lucky Star number.

Euromillions tickets have been selling like proverbial hot cakes (at a peak rate of more than 1 million tickets per hour) for the last few draws, so the fact that this Friday's draw is sure to see €180 million distributed to at least one lucky player is likely to create a ticket-buying frenzy of unprecedented proportions. This makes it advisable to buy tickets early in the week, as the last-minute rush for tickets is expected to cause chaos in the most popular lottery outlets.

If the jackpot is won by just one player, then that player will break the previous record held for the biggest individual win. In July 1995, Dolores McNamara won €115 million -- a sum which is around €65 million less than the jackpot on offer this Friday.

The odds of winning the Euromillions jackpot are 1 in 76,275,360, but as said earlier, if no jackpot winner is found, then the €180 million top tier prize fund will be shared between all second tier prize winners. The odds of matching five main numbers and just one Lucky Star number (which is what you need to do to qualify for the second tier prize) are a much better 1 in 5,448,240. This makes the coming Euromillions draw on Friday, 17 November superb value for money -- but you need to be in it to win it.
