EuroMillions jackpot nears its £167m cap
AN ESTIMATED £167million lottery jackpot on Tuesday will be the biggest ever offered to UK players after no one won Friday’s EuroMillions top prize.
The winning numbers in the Friday EuroMillions draw were 7, 18, 19, 32 and 48 with lucky star numbers 3 and 7. Two UK millionaires were created in the UK Millionaire Raffle with XHVJ06918 and MJWJ77690.
Across Europe, seven people matched all five numbers plus one lucky number for a payday of £195,868.
Andy Carter, winners advisor at the National Lottery, said: “A single UK winner would be the biggest this country and Europe has ever seen.”
If unclaimed, a jackpot cap will keep it at £167million for up to four draws.
The UK record win is £161.65million by Colin and Chris Weir from Ayrshire in July 2011. There have been five EuroMillions jackpots of more than £100million won by UK ticket holders.
