There's a whopping £91M up for the taking on tonight's EuroMillions. So, if you're the holder of a lucky ticket then you could end tonight with a life changing sum of money. If you're sat there thinking, 'it'll never be me', then have a little read of this.
A lad by the name of Samuel Wood was a having a pretty bad July. He'd made the decision to quit the RAF and was all set for a new job as a factory supervisor. However, he was made redundant without any warning. However, as this story is about the EuroMillions, there's a happy ending - he picked up a massive £88,633.70 EuroMillions win. Not only that, but he got offered a new job as a labourer at a construction company. It isn't known whether he took it or not.
He quickly bought himself a Mercedes E Class and a trip to Australian to see his family. He said: "I have always wanted to go to Australia, but I have never been able to afford it and never believed I would be able to."
"This win will enable me to fulfil my dream and visit family I haven't seen for so long. I will no longer have to wait for them to visit me - I can afford to fly out to see them - who knows, maybe even business class!"
So, what are you waiting for? Check your tickets, it could be you.

How to Play EuroMillions
What Can I Win?
Even if you don't win the Jackpot, there are 13 different prize tiers ranging from £3.30 for two numbers up to £227,848 depending on how many winning numbers you have.
The odds of winning a prize in the EuroMillions are 1 in 13. Here is a full breakdown of the prizes available tonight:
5 Main Numbers + 2 Lucky Stars = Jackpot
5 Main Numbers + 1 Lucky Star = £227,848.80
5 Main Numbers = £23,586.00
4 Main Numbers + 2 Lucky Stars = £2,307.30
4 Main Numbers + 1 Lucky Star = £123.00
3 Main Numbers + 2 Lucky Stars = £78.00

How big can the EuroMillions jackpot get?
The jackpot can rise to €190 million (approximately £167 million based on exchange rate on 29th September 2017).
If it reaches this level, it will be capped - if the jackpot is not won, any additional money in the jackpot prize fund over and above €190 million will roll down to boost the prize money at the next highest tier where there are winners (most likely the 5+1 tier).
This can happen four times before the €190 million must be won. If this happens and the jackpot is still not won, the entire €190 million - plus any additional money in the jackpot prize fund over and above this amount - would roll down to the next highest tier where there are winners (most likely the 5+1 tier).
