EuroMillions Gets More Exciting

There was another EuroMillions rollover on Tuesday night so the estimated jackpot for Friday's EuroMillions draw has grown to €88 million (£72 million). A figure like that would look good on anybody's bank statement and if nobody manages to match the 5 main numbers and 2 lucky stars on Friday the jackpot will rollover for a 9th time and give EuroMillions players a larger chunk of cash to play for next week.

But even if some lucky punter does scoop the big one on Friday there will still be a hefty prize on offer next week because EuroMillions officials at Luxembourg have just announced the second Superdraw of the year will be held on Friday, June 6.

EuroMillions Superdraws are occasional drawings that are usually held about twice a year. They differ from ordinary draws by offering a guaranteed jackpot of €100 (£80 million).

If no player successfully matches all the numbers drawn on Friday June 6, the jackpot will rollover in the normal way and receive a boost from ticket sales.

The last EuroMillions Superdraw was held on March 7. The jackpot proved to be elusive. It rolled over twice, allowing it grow to €129 million (£107 million), before it was eventually scooped by, car mechanic, Neil Trotter from London, England.

Prior to his big win Trotter had been spending a lot of his free time building a high speed car. His EuroMillions allowed him to change his focus and consider buying a whole fleet of sports cars instead.
