EuroMillions Offers 26 Ways to Become a Millionaire This Friday
Last Updated: Wednesday 21st February 2018, 10:57 am
There has never been a better chance to become a millionaire than in this Friday’s EuroMillions draw. Not only can you strike gold and become Ireland’s biggest ever lottery winner by claiming the €175 million jackpot, but there are also 25 prizes of €1 million guaranteed to be given away across Europe in the EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw.
EuroMillions Jackpot for Friday 23rd February
The last players to pick up a EuroMillions jackpot were the Dublin family syndicate who matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars in the draw on Friday 29th December 2017. There have been 15 rollovers since then, with Tuesday 20th February’s draw producing the winning numbers 6, 14, 19, 25 and 29 with Lucky Stars 5 and 11, but failing to find a top prize winner.
The EuroMillions jackpot is at its highest level since a Spanish player on Gran Canaria matched the game’s record payout of €190 million on Friday 6th October 2017. The only winners to previously claim the maximum award are a Portuguese ticket holder from Castelo Branco, who matched all seven balls in the draw on Friday 24th October 2014, and Adrian and Gillian Bayford of the UK, who were the first to win at the current jackpot cap, on Friday 10th August 2012.
EuroMillions Jackpot Cap
If the jackpot rolls again on Friday, it may well reach the €190 million jackpot cap. It can then stay at that level for five winless draws before the full amount must roll down and be shared amongst the players in the next prize tier with winners. This will most likely be the Match 5+1 level, although there is every chance that someone will win the jackpot before then.
EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw
The EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw is an occasional supplementary game that sees multiple €1 million prizes guaranteed to be won across the nine participating EuroMillions nations. When you buy a EuroMillions ticket in Ireland, you already receive a unique code for each line you play, which acts as your entry into the Ireland Only Raffle. On EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw nights, this doubles up as your entry for the Europe-wide game too.
Each code has the same chance as any other of winning one of the 25 €1 million awards, regardless of the country in which the ticket was bought.
The last time the game was played, Friday 28th October 2016, there were no Irish winners, so this Friday is your opportunity to make history and become the country’s first ever EuroMillions European raffle winner.
You can play EuroMillions at retailers across Ireland for your opportunity to pick up the mighty €175 million jackpot or one of the 25 EuroMillionaires Raffle Draw awards.
If you want a safe and secure shot at this week’s mighty jackpot, you could also pick your numbers online. This means you don’t have to worry about losing or damaging your ticket, and it gets rid of the stress of finding an appropriate hiding place for it once you match all seven numbers to collect the full €175 million. Good luck!
