Someone Could Become UK's Biggest Ever Lottery Winner Tomorrow

Someone Could Become UK's Biggest Ever Lottery Winner Tomorrow

Have you been getting lucky lately? Red lights turning green? Dodging rain clouds? Arriving at Tesco just after it's done its reductions?

If so, you may want to try your luck tomorrow (Tuesday, 10 May), when you could be in with the chance of becoming the biggest-ever National Lottery winner.

An almost unimaginably life-changing EuroMillions jackpot of £184 million ($226 million) is up for grabs, and if there is just a single winner, they will become the biggest in history.

To date, the biggest ever win was in October 2019, when an anonymous ticketholder – who I shall refer to as Jammy B*stard – picked up £170 million ($198 million).

So then, the question you've got to ask yourself is – do you feel lucky?

Well, it's not too late to be in with a shout, for as we all know, you can't win the lottery without buying a ticket.

You've got until 7.30pm tomorrow to grab one – or more, if you want to boost your chances.

If there isn't a winner, the jackpot will eventually be capped once it reaches £197 million ($242 million), which it could get to by Friday's draw.

Andy Carter, senior winners' advisor at The National Lottery, said: "Wow, we could be looking at The National Lottery's biggest-ever winner this Tuesday.

"This massive amount could not only change a winners' life, but would make a huge difference to their friends, family and community.

"My team and I have our fingers crossed for all UK players and are on standby to support all our big winners as they start their life-changing journey. Make sure you grab your ticket early."

Once you've got your ticket, you can enjoy whiling away the hours until the draw imaging what you'll do with all of those enormous piles of cash.

What's the first thing you'd do? Write your notice, maybe? Why even bother writing your notice when you could simply get on a private jet to Barbados and never return to work?

Or perhaps, with a jackpot that size, you'll end up getting addicted to giving away money. That's what happened to Frances Connolly, who has given away more than half of the £115 million ($141 million) she won in 2019.

Speaking to The Mirror, she said giving to charity 'gives her a buzz', adding: "I get to change people's lives every day if I want to. 

"Helping other people and doing something to help other people will lift you.

"If you can give to others, whether it's time or money, it's really important, it gives you a buzz. It's addictive. I'm addicted to it now."
