How High Can the EuroMillions Jackpot Grow?
Last Updated: Monday 18th September 2017, 10:50 am
There was no £114.5 million Superdraw winner on Friday 15th September, leaving lottery fans across Europe to wonder how high the EuroMillions jackpot can grow. Of the 19 Superdraws in the game’s history, 11 have resulted in rollovers, helping to create some of its biggest ever prizes.
Friday’s EuroMillions Result
Friday’s winning EuroMillions Superdraw numbers were 13, 18, 37, 44 and 49 with Lucky Stars 9 and 12. Although no one won the specially boosted top prize, a UK ticket holder, along with five other players, scooped £223,535 for matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star. A further two Brits pocketed £1 million each after matching the winning Millionaire Maker codes, which you can find at the EuroMillions Results page.
Although 30th June’s EuroMillions Superdraw jackpot of £87.5 million was won on the night by a UK player, the majority of these enhanced top prizes continue to grow. For example, the special £112.6 million award on Friday 30th September 2016 rolled three times before a Robert De Niro fan from Brussels in Belgium banked £153.3 million.
The Superdraw immediately prior to that remained unclaimed for four draws before a Portuguese player picked up £114.8 million on Friday 20th November 2015.
From Superdraw to Jackpot Cap
Following the Superdraw on Friday 3rd October 2014, no one matched the winning EuroMillions numbers for six draws, leading to it hitting the Jackpot Cap of €190 million. At that point, it could grow no higher and a Portuguese player won the full amount. That was the largest Euro amount to be directly linked to a Superdraw, but the sterling value of £149.7 million is less than the September 2016 Belgian win, which stood at €168 million on the continent. This is due to the fluctuating exchange rate between sterling and the Euro.
