Tonight’s EuroMillions draw could see at least one lucky ticket holder win a jackpot of £120 million. This current sum is the largest prize to have been offered by the pan-European game this year and the biggest total since a Belgian man walked away with a jackpot worth £153.3 million (€168 million) in the draw on Tuesday 11th October 2016.
The premium prize, which has been growing ever since a French family from Dijon claimed a jackpot worth £70.8 million (€83.3 million) on Tuesday 11th April, continued to rise following Friday night’s draw when the numbers 5, 7, 26, 36 and 39 appeared, alongside the Lucky Stars 2 and 10. No players were able to match all seven digits, however, there was cause for celebration for four players - two Brits, a Belgian and a French ticket holder - who were lucky enough to land a sensational £277,779 (€427,598) in the Match 5+1 prize tier.
The draw provided additional joy for nine players who were able to match five main numbers to scoop £28,754 (€44,263) apiece. It proved to be a prosperous evening for lottery lovers, as a further 3,104,145 prize winners profited from the draw, winning totals ranging from £2.70 (€4.00) for matching two numbers to £2,301 (€3,543) for correctly predicting four main numbers and both Lucky Stars.

Three players from the UK won £1 million and a luxury trip to Japan, courtesy of Millionaire Maker’s Mega Week draw, while a French participant pocketed €1 million in the My Million draw and ten Irish entrants secured €5,000 each after matching one of the lucky codes in the Ireland Only Raffle.
