EuroMillions jackpot reaches £184million tonight

Solihull Editorial 12th Oct, 2021

BRITAIN’S biggest ever lottery jackpot is on offer tonight as the EuroMillions rolls over to a incredible £184million.

Should a single UK ticketholder win, the prize would be largest sum won in this country, beating the current record holder of the £170million jackpot in October 2019.

The cash mountain has increased after no-one won the £174million EuroMillions jackpot on Friday (October 8).

One lucky ticket holder could be richer than Adele should they win tonight with the singer’s net worth being £130million, according to The Sunday Times Rich List.

And should they be interested in property, a £30million home on Kensington Palace Gardens would be within easy reach.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said: “Tuesday’s massive EuroMillions jackpot is an estimated £184 million.

“If one UK winner banks the lot, they would instantly become the UK’s biggest ever National Lottery winner. Players are urged to get their tickets early to be in with a chance of winning this fabulous prize.

“National Lottery players make a huge difference to National Lottery Good Causes across the country generating more than £30million every week.

“Thanks to National Lottery players, over £1.2billion has been distributed to date across the UK to help tackle the impact of coronavirus.”

For the EuroMillions Hot Picks, which the winning numbers are the same as for the EuroMillions draw, no-one won the top prize of £1 million or the second prize of £30,000.
