Well, it's that time of year again. Here in the UK, the mornings have turned frosty, the weathermen are predicting the next ice age and the newspapers are telling us that "Britain Is Paralysed" because of some freezing fog. Fortunately, there's always a lottery or two to add a bit of festive cheer to the mix.
There is no Christmas Millionaire Maker this year, but tonight's Euromillions jackpot is going to be worth around £35,000,000. That's enough to keep most people warm for quite a few winters - or indeed to fund an extended holiday in more tropical climes. You'll need to be quick if you haven't already bought your ticket though, as time is fast running out.
If you don't land the Euromillions jackpot, the UK Lotto jackpot tomorrow is worth an estimated £5,500,000. It's not a great deal when compared with £35 million, but it's certainly enough to get 2007 off to a good start. Elsewhere in the lottery world, the MegaMillions jackpot for tonight stands at $50,000,000 and the Powerball game has a jackpot of $65,000,000 up for grabs tomorrow.
For those of you who need even more gaming action on top of all that, a virtual trip over to http://www.lottery.co.uk/ is highly recommended. They have a wide range of online games that you can play, including some excellent lottery-type games, and you can choose to play for fun (which means for free) or for cash prizes.
Since this is my last lottery blog entry until after the holidays, all that remains is for me to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas. Hopefully Santa will play nice and drop a lottery win in your stocking, but if he doesn't, come back on Thursday 28 December and I'll tell you how to improve your chances in 2007.
Until then, Merry Christmas!
