The Euro Millions lottery has rolled over and has a jackpot worth £23,000,000 tonight. The popular lottery game combines the stakes of nine countries including Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain,Switzerland and the United Kingdom making it one of the biggest lotteries in the world.
No lottery player was able to win the lottery jackpot on Tuesday, causing it to rollover however, one UK lottery player did win £1,000,000 with the Millionaire Raffle which guarantees a millionaire every week.
Tickets for the EuroMillions lottery are priced at £2 per line of numbers which includes 5 main numbers and 2 lucky stars. The jackpot is won when a player matches all 5 mains and the 2 stars.
There are a total of thirteen prizes available with the EuroMillions game and whilst the chances of winning the top prize are one in 116 million, the odds of a player winning any of the lottery prizes are one in thirteen.
If the jackpot is not won, it rolls over to the next week and so on until it is won or it reaches £162 million after which it stays at the same value until it is won. In the case of the latter, prize money that would have been added to the jackpot, had it not been for the cap, is added to the next lowest tier in which there is at least one winner.
There have been several cases of jackpots rolling over and only two months ago, the EuroMillions rolled over twelve times before it was claimed by a Scottish couple for £161 million.
Those who prefer to buy tickets for the EuroMillions in advance may want to buy a few for the Super draw that is scheduled on 4th October and is worth a massive £85 million. Buy tickets for tonight’s EuroMillions £23 million game.
