Don’t let that lucky ticket slip from your hands, as it did for so many would-be EuroMillions players yesterday when the National Lottery website and app crashed for the second time in less than a week. Having also crashed on Saturday hours before the £14.5M Lotto draw, leaving players angry and disappointed as they were unable to get last minute tickets.

Not only is the jackpot the largest in the history of the game, the second prize tier is also setting records. With the jackpot capped and no longer able to climb (at €190), the prize money from this draw’s ticket sales will go to the next prize level. Namely those that match five balls and one lucky star.
Normally this tier has a prize fund of about £2.1M. This Friday, it is likely to swell by at least £5-10M. Thus likely to make millionaires for those lucky 2nd tier winners too.
It’s also Friday, and it is a known fact that more people play EuroMillions today than on a Tuesday. Which means there is a higher chance that someone will win the jackpot! Must be that Friday Feeling…
Lotto Social recently reported where last Friday’s £155M jackpot would put you on the rich list. Scooping this jackpot will push you even further up the list. Overtaking the likes of former big boyband One Direction, chef Jamie Oliver and F1 driver Lewis Hamilton.
