After another rollover on Tuesday 21st October, the EuroMillions jackpot has hit the cap of €190 million – a value not seen since August 2012. The current rollover streak began with planned Superdraw on Friday 3rd October, when no player was able to snap up the €100 million prize on offer that night. The jackpot has been just out of the grasp of players ever since. So how does the cap actually work?
When the EuroMillions jackpot cap is reached, a set of specific rules come into play. The top prize can only roll over once when it is set at €190 million. The extra funds generated through ticket sales that would go towards the jackpot in a normal draw are instead rolled down and shared equally among players in the winning tier closest to the jackpot regardless of whether or not there is a top prize winner.
If no one wins in the first draw at the cap, then the jackpot “rolls” over to the next draw, but is still valued at €190 million. If no player matches five main numbers and both Lucky Stars in the second draw, then the entire €190 million, along with excess money raised via ticket sales, is rolled down and distributed to players in the highest winning tier. Even if there is a jackpot winner in the second capped draw, ticket holders in the next winning tier (typically Match 5 + 1 Lucky Star) still receive an equal share of the additional funds raised.
All this means that the jackpot cap has the potential to create not just one but several big winners in a single draw!
There’s still time to buy EuroMillions tickets online by clicking the Tickets tab or by visiting an authorised retailer to purchase them in person. Sales close at 8.30pm CEST, so set a reminder on your phone, leave a note on your desk or ask a friend to give you a call – do whatever it takes to ensure that you don’t miss out on your chance to win a life-changing sum of money. Good luck!
There have been five EuroMillions draws since Friday 3rd October’s Superdraw and there is still to be a jackpot winner, meaning that Tuesday 21st October will see a top prize of €180 million!
Although the jackpot remained untouched on Friday there were plenty of prizes handed out, from €4.30 which was won by 2,654,977 players who matched two main numbers up to €764,204 received by four players who each matched five main numbers and one Lucky Star. Visit the EuroMillions Results page to see a full prize breakdown from Friday’s draw.
If no one wins the top prize on Tuesday then the jackpot cap of €190 million will be hit on Friday, where it will stay for two draws if no one wins it, before rolling down into the next winning prize tier. If you think you have what it takes to prevent that from happening, bagging yourself a gargantuan fortune in the process, then visit the Lotto Tickets tab.
Brace yourselves, EuroMillions fans – a €162 million jackpot is coming on Friday 17th October! The colossal prize comes after four draws without a top-tier winner, including a planned Superdraw on Friday 3rd October that boasted a jackpot of €100 million.
Despite the lack of jackpot winners, the draw on Tuesday 14th October was still a great success as over 3.8 million players picked up cash prizes. There were three lucky participants who snapped up €708,398 each for matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star while an additional 17 players matched five main numbers to win €30,096 each. The remaining players won amounts worth between €3.90 for matching two main numbers and €1,967 for matching four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.
