Did Anyone Win The EuroMillions Jackpot On Tuesday? What Are The Odds Of Winning On Friday?
Yet another EuroMillions draw took place on Tuesday night and unbelievably the jackpot still wasn't been won. While some of us watched Man City and Spurs in the Champions League, Tuesday's EuroMillions numbers were being drawn: 02, 11, 18, 40 and 46 with Lucky Stars number 01 and 04.
However the Lucky Stars weren't so lucky, as it's another rollover, meaning Friday's jackpot will remain an estimated £169 million after reaching its cap.
Despite no one winning the big prize, seven ticket-holders across Europe, including five winners from the UK, have become millionaires after matching five numbers and one lucky star to take home £1,784,722 each.
On Friday, there is a chance for one lucky Brit to become the nation's biggest ever lottery winner with a whopping £169 million there for the taking. I wouldn't get too excited just yet, as while the odds of winning a prize playing EuroMillions are one in 13. The odds of winning the EuroMillions jackpot is much higher, at 1 in 139,838,160.
Andy Carter, senior winners' adviser at The National Lottery, said: "The EuroMillions jackpot rolls on to Friday when the huge £167m jackpot is up for grabs.
"A single winner would be the biggest winner this country has ever seen. Players are urged to get their tickets early to be in with a chance of banking a life-changing prize.
"As the jackpot is now capped, tonight's draw has seen three players bank bigger prizes for matching five numbers and just one Lucky Star.
"By buying a ticket for EuroMillions or any other National Lottery game, every player is helping to raise money for good causes.
"On average, around £30m is raised every week for projects across the UK, both big and small, including funding everything from local community projects to supporting the nation's athletes."
So there you go, even if you don't win any money, at least you know your money wasn't wasted.
The rules for the draw will change a little bit too, which you can learn all about in this handy video.
If you're feeling lucky then get yourself to the National Lottery site, pick 5 numbers from 1 to 50 and 2 Lucky Stars from 1 to 12.
