How Will the EuroMillions UK Lotto Story Play Out? – July 23rd, 2012
The EuroMillions UK jackpot has reached an unbelievable €112 million, which only heightens the mounting anticipation for Friday night’s EuroMillions Olympic Draw.
In addition to offering the EuroMillions UK jackpot, Friday night’s EuroMillions UK Millionaire Raffle will hand out 100 £1 million prizes to lotto entrants.
The next draw for this famous pan-continental lottery is tomorrow (July 24th), but what would happen if the lottery top prize went unclaimed once more?
If the jackpot rolls again tomorrow night, there will be more than €230 million in jackpot prizes available on Friday night.
On June 19th – which is the last time a player took home the coveted jumbo payout – the €15 million jackpot was taken home just days after a €26 million top prize was scooped up, so this latest run of nine rollovers has been doing much to raise the tension and thrills surrounding the celebrated lotto’s jackpot.
If no EuroMillions lottery tickets match all the numbers entitling them to the first-tier sum tomorrow the windfall will not only go unclaimed for a tenth consecutive draw but the cash payout itself will be heaped on top of the £100 million in guaranteed Millionaire Raffle prizes for Friday night’s super draw.
This would make it the biggest payout in the history of the UK EuroMillions.
If this happens, fans can be certain the UK EuroMillions super draw will cause the sort of hype the lotto has never seen before, as the July 27th EuroMillions UK Millionaire Raffle was already marked as an historic event, without taking into account the massive EuroMillions UK jackpot.
This event will make 100 millionaires overnight as a big thank you to those whose lottery ticket purchases have contributed to the organisation of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
The special draw is going to smash records, because it is going to make more millionaires from a single lottery draw than any other lotto in the world.
Because of this exciting event and the once-in-a-lifetime chance to take home a world-altering prize, the EuroMillions expects to experience record ticket sales, which could drive up the jackpot value to astronomic heights.
The last time the EuroMillions broke records was a year ago, when Colin and Christine Weir of Largs inScotlandwon £161 million after a series of hyped-up rollovers brought about increased ticket sales and a larger jackpot value.
So will tomorrow’s EuroMillions UK prize rollover and make history? Whatever happens, this week is an exciting one for the UK EuroMillions.
