Those hopes had to be put aside, as no player was able to match all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars drawn tonight, and so the top prize has rolled over again to reach a very tempting £50 million (€63 million) for the draw set to be held on Friday November 28th.
There were still plenty of prizes paid out tonight, from the £2.70 (€3.80) picked up by each of the 1,201,875 ticket holders who matched two main numbers to the five participants who matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star to secure themselves a payout of €244,414 each.

With the jackpot climbing ever higher as the temperature outside dips even lower, winning Friday's extraordinary top prize would be enough to let a winner jet off to exotic warm locales. Even snagging a Millionaire Maker prize this week could help you fly away to sunny Australia, exotic Brazil or charming Peru, as Mega Friday will return with ten life-changing prizes of £1 million and the chance to take a luxury trip to one of these three countries.
Ticket sales will reopen tonight and close again on Friday at 7.30pm GMT (8.30pm CET) in advance of the draw taking place in Paris. You can purchase your entries online or from an authorised retailer. Good luck!
