EuroMillions Jackpot Reaches £128 Million!
Last Updated: Friday 17th October 2014, 10:15 am
Tonight sees the biggest EuroMillions jackpot since Tuesday 25th June 2013 as Europe’s lottery fans battle it out to get their hands on a top prize of £128 million. Tuesday’s draw ended in the fourth rollover in a row since the EuroMillions Superdraw on Friday 3rd October, which has sparked a deluge of hopeful players snapping up tickets for the chance to win this chunk of almost unimaginable wealth.
A single UK ticket holder bagging the entire jackpot tonight would see the winner sail past Neil Trotter, who won £107.9 million in March of this year, into third place in the National Lottery Rich List, bringing them the opportunity to move into a sprawling mansion, snap up a fleet of the world’s finest supercars and set off on a business class globe trotting adventure without even really scratching the surface of their vast wealth.
Cautious winners might be predisposed to simply bank the entire amount and live off the interest which would still net them, if placed in a basic current account with interest at the Bank of England base rate of 0.5%, a cool £640,000 per year! That works out at nearly £200,000 more per year than the Director General of the BBC and more than four times as much as David Cameron earns, but with a lot less responsibility!
Tickets are on sale now from authorised retailers where queues will already be building. To avoid waiting behind a crowd of other players, all hunting for the one half-chewed pen that always goes missing, you can play online too by clicking the Lottery Tickets tab.
