This is the fourth-largest jackpot that EuroMillions has seen this year. The biggest jackpot was offered in the draw held on Friday 13th June 2014, when a Spanish ticket holder took home a payday of £109.5 million (€137.3 million). The top prize reached a staggering £108.2 million (€130.2 million) for the draw on Tuesday 7th January and was split by a ticket holder from Spain and a player from France. On 14th March 2014, UK ticket holder Neil Trotter grabbed a £107.9 million (€129.3 million) top prize after buying a tenner’s worth of Lucky Dip tickets.
While most people would be over the moon if they landed £87 million, there are others who may be hoping for more rollovers and a chance to join the ranks of Chris and Colin Weir, who won £161.6 million (€185 million) on 7th July 2011, and the now-separated Adrian and Gillian Bayford, who snapped up £148.6 million (€190 million) on 8th August 2012. No matter what, anyone who strikes it lucky and wins tonight’s jackpot will surely be thrilled to write their resignation letter for work tomorrow morning!
Looking for a way to treat yourself and beat the autumn slump?

Tickets for tonight’s bumper EuroMillions jackpot are now on sale and you have until 7.30pm BST (8.30pm CEST) to get your hands on some before sales close. Good luck!
