While EuroMillions regularly boasts big prizes, a £100 million jackpot is nevertheless unusual as in 2013 only two jackpots managed to surpass the £100 million mark. The first jackpot, worth an impressive £112 million (€132 million), was won by a single French ticket holder from Seine-et-Marne on Friday 29th March. The second was won on Tuesday 25th June and was split between a ticket holder from Ireland and another from Belgium. The winners shared a staggering prize of £159 million (€187 million), securing a windfall of £79 million (€93 million) each.
Although there were only two jackpots worth more than £100 million won in 2013, tonight’s draw is already the second so far this year to offer a prize of such a substantial value. Just nine weeks ago, on 7th January, two players shared a top tier prize of £108 million (€130 million), each claiming £54 million (€65 million).
With a £107 million (€129 million) jackpot at stake, ticket sales for tonight’s draw are likely to be high. We suggest that anyone who wishes to participate in tonight’s game should purchase their tickets in plenty of time to avoid the lengthy queues and the last minute rush.
The results from tonight’s EuroMillions draw will be available on Euro-Millions.com shortly after the draw takes place at 20.30GMT.
