The EuroMillions lottery draw scheduled for Friday, July 1st, will have a whopping jackpot worth £170 million and National lottery players have a chance of taking it home. It was confirmed by the officials that no one had managed to match the five numbers in Tuesday night’s draw, along with the two Lucky Star numbers needed for taking the jackpot home.
The prize for the EuroMillions draw on Tuesday had been set at £152,102,048. The jackpot has now rolled over, which has allowed the Friday night’s jackpot to grow. A lucky winner could walk away with the second-largest lottery prize paid out in the UK ever.
The largest ever EuroMillions prize in the United Kingdom amounted to £184 million that was claimed in May via a lucky dip ticket by Jess and Joe Thwaite from Gloucestershire. The greatest ever lottery win for Scotland had come in July 2011, when a whopping prize of £161 million was claimed by Chris and Colin Weir from Ayrshire.
In case there is no winner in Friday night’s draw of the EuroMillions lottery, the jackpot is expected to rollover once more. If that happens, then the jackpot would hit a cap of £230 million. The lottery players will have the opportunity of trying for the prize for five draws, or until there is a winner.
It is possible that the fifth draw may be the final one, which is often called the ‘must be won’ draw because it means that those in the below prize tier could actually have a chance of winning a portion of the massive amount. The deadline for buying the tickets for Friday night’s draw is 7:30 p.m. on the day of the draw.
