Last Updated: Wednesday 20th December 2006, 13:39 pm
The Euromillions draw for this coming Friday (22 December) is exciting players all over Europe with a jackpot of around £35 million. With just a few days remaining before Christmas, the notion of becoming a millionaire on Friday and being able to play Santa in style on Monday is driving ticket sales through the roof.
Christmas is always a good time for lottery sales, but to have a draw for a particularly large jackpot take place just a few days before the popular holiday is a dream come true for many. The lottery companies involved will be pleased to have extra ticket sales raising money for good causes, and lottery players all over Europe will have something extra to look forward to - it's a win-win scenario all round.
Tickets for the Euromillions game are available right up to the day of the draw, but with a last-minute surge in sales expected to coincide with a lot of last-minute Christmas shopping, we expect queues to grow almost as long as the ones we witnessed for the whopping £120 million jackpot draw in November. Our advice is therefore to buy your tickets as soon as you can.
For those readers who have been living in Lapland for the past three years, players of the Euromillions game have to pick 5 main numbers from 1-50 and 2 Lucky Star numbers from 1-9. The jackpot is won by the player(s) who match all seven numbers correctly. Lesser prizes are available for players who match fewer numbers, and overall the odds of winning any prize are 1 in 24.
Will the Euromillions draw this Friday make you a Christmas jackpot winner? Will Santa be dropping £35 million down your chimney? You'll find out for certain on Friday night, so good luck and we ho ho hope you win!
