EuroMil­lions jack­pot nears its £167m cap

The Sunday Telegraph - - News - By Mike Wright

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.
