Todays EuroMillions Lottery draw is worth an estimated £23,000,000 if you are playing from the United Kingdom or just over €27,000,000 if you are playing in one of the European countries that make up the official EuroMillion playing area. The last win on the lottery took place when the jackpot was around this total and was split between a Spanish ticket and an Irish Euromillions ticket. It is primarily the Irish ticket that made the news for a number of reasons. It has emerged that the winning ticket was bought in Munster, the lottery player only hit the lottery after ticking a number incorrectly on the lottery ticket.
According to the lucky Irish Lottery player he ticked the number 32 by mistake on his lottery play slip and the rest as you know is history. He went on to state that he wished he made this kind of mistake every week and could not believe his luck. I guess it adds new meaning to the phrase when your number is up your number is up.
It really does go to show that winning a lottery is down to luck. You can of course increase your chances of winning by purchasing additional lottery tickets and playing the same numbers each week but at the end of the day if your number is up , well then it is your lucky day.
There has also been additional media coverage this week as to how playing the lottery could affect your financial health. The report concluded that when people play lottery games it gets their imaginations running and due to this people go out and make unnecessary purchases. What a load of tosh. We truly hope that none of our tax money has been spent on producing a report of this nature.
All that remains for this weekend then is for one of our numbers to come up on EuroMillions Draw 624. Get Lottery Tickets Online here.
