On Tuesday night a French ticket holder scooped a £57.8 million (€72.9 million) EuroMillions windfall by becoming the first player to match all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars in seven draws. Another French player won themselves €1 million in the supplementary game My Million, whilst a UK player is £1 million to the good thanks to Millionaire Maker. My Million and Millionaire Maker return tonight in their respective countries, with players across Europe hoping to bag either that prize or a plum eight-figure bounty before the party season fully kicks into gear.
Lotto ticket holders find themselves with a very tasty £5.3 million jackpot to play for on Saturday night after Wednesday’s draw passed without a top tier winner. The great jackpot and the added bonus of 50 more prizes of £20,000 to be given away in Lotto Raffle will ensure that tickets will be snapped up at a brisk pace before tomorrow night’s 7:30pm GMT sales cut-off time.
With more than £5 million in the bank you would be able to splash out of life’s extravagances and they don’t come much more extravagant than owning your own Back to the Future DeLorean car. Online retailer Firebox has a full-sized, electric version of the iconic car, which boasts a top speed of 125mph, although once you pass 88mph you never know where, or when, you might end up.
At £70,000 it would be a drop in the ocean for the UK’s newest millionaire and, if only you could only find a flux capacitor, you could win Lotto twice a week, every week!
Tickets are on sale for both games now so make sure you snap some up in order to begin living out your wildest dreams!
