EuroMillions £175 Million Jackpot Is Highest Ever Ahead Of Tuesday's Draw

It could be you

This Tuesday (8 December) will see the EuroMillions jackpot hit the highest total ever after nobody claimed the massive prize in last night's draw.

This coming week, anyone with a ticket will be in with a chance of scooping £175 million ($235m) if they can correctly match the numbers.

Imagine what you could do with that sort of money. You'd immediately become one of the richest people living in the UK.

Hell, it would certainly take the edge off what promises to be a slightly weird and unusual Christmas.

Incidentally, this jackpot is the biggest ever offered by EuroMillions because the money is now capped.

After this, it ain't getting any bigger until someone wins the dough.

If it's just one winner this time around, they'll become the National Lottery's biggest ever winner, surpassing the previous anonymous winner by a cool £5 million ($6.7m).


Speaking ahead of the draw, Camelot's senior winners adviser Andy Carter told The Sun: "It's still all to play for on Tuesday night when the whopping EuroMillions jackpot of an estimated £175 million remains up for grabs.

"Players are urged to buy their tickets early online via the National Lottery app or website, or in their local shop, to be in with a chance of winning this massive prize."

If you want to put it into perspective, just for buying a ticket you'll throw your name into the hat to become wealthier than a whole host of celebrities, sports stars and businessmen.

OK, you won't have Branson or Dyson money, but it'd be enough to pack on your job and move to somewhere sunny.

If that's what you fancy doing, anyway.

Mr Carter went on to describe the £175 million prize as 'mind-blowing'.

He added: "A UK winner would soar to the top of the rich list and make all their friends and families' dreams come true.

"Imagine trying to get all the gifts under the Christmas tree. Unbelievable."


Obviously, the chances of winning the jackpot are pretty remote, but with every ticket you've got a chance of winning, and it's a pretty small outlay at £2.50 a pop.

You've got to be in it to win it, after all.

The chances - however small - are still massively larger than the zero chance you'll have without buying a ticket.
