The jackpot for this coming Friday’s Euromillions draw has climbed to €230 million. This is the highest figure ever in the history of the European lottery.
The June 17th Superdraw brought a guaranteed €130 million jackpot. But, since no participating ticket matched the winning numbers of the draw, the EuroMillions top prize rolled over and here we are: this Friday’s draw offers a record jackpot of €230 million. If this mouth-watering jackpot will be won by a single ticket holder, they will become the biggest EuroMillions winner of all time!
These are amazing times for the European lottery. The previous record stood at €220 million and it was claimed by a player in French Polynesia on October 15, 2021. This was also the draw when the previous jackpot cap was reached and a new cap was set into place.
But this is not all! Since the cap is currently set at €230 million, the rollover streak stops here. What does this mean? According to the new EuroMillions rules, once the €230 million cap is reached, the current jackpot can no longer grow. It will stay on at the same value for four more draws. During this time, all prize funds that do not get added to the jackpot, go towards the lower EuroMillions prize tiers. If the jackpot is still not won after the four draws, the top prize funds will be distributed to the next prize level that has winners.
Since the new cap was reached, a new cap of €240 million will be set. This means that EuroMillions is bound to display even more and bigger jackpots in the near future.
So, what are you waiting for? Grab your EuroMillions ticket right now and be a part of the European lottery’s history.
