How Would You React If You Won Friday’s EuroMillions Jackpot?

A EuroMillions jackpot of £154 million will be up for grabs in Friday night’s draw, while the odds of becoming a millionaire will also be better than for most draws due to a special event. If you win a big prize, do you think you would be able to keep your cool or would you be overcome with emotion?
Dennis Banfield, an 87-year-old father of two who became the UK’s oldest lottery winner when he scooped £18.1 million on Lotto in Saturday night’s draw, could not help but weep when he came forward on Tuesday to speak to the media. He said it meant that his daughters would be ‘financially secure forever’, adding: “All that has mattered to Shirley and I is that the girls are okay.”
Dennis and Shirley had always joked that it was just a matter of time they won, and they can now look forward to spending their winnings. Dennis says he is tempted by a new car, although he may ‘need to get a chauffeur to go with it’ due to a dodgy knee and what he really wants is a new suit.
Anyone who wins a big prize in Friday’s EuroMillions draw will be similarly set up for the future, and can dream of splashing out on glorious mansions, luxury yachts and exotic holidays in addition to new items of clothing.
The jackpot has climbed to a stunning £154 million on the back of 15 consecutive rollovers, although the most recent draw on Tuesday still created more than 700,000 UK winners. Go to the EuroMillions Results page for a full prize breakdown.
European Millionaire Maker
Friday’s draw will not only offer a colossal jackpot, but also extra opportunities to win in the European Millionaire Maker. The game guarantees that 25 players from across the nine participating countries will win £1 million/€1 million each.
The code on your ticket which is normally entered into just the UK Millionaire Maker draw will be entered into the European raffle as well, giving you a total of 27 chances to land £1 million in addition to any prizes you might win in the main EuroMillions draw.
Great Time To Play
The combination of the enormous jackpot and the European Millionaire Maker draw makes this an ideal time to take part. You can buy tickets from any authorised retailer or pick numbers online to avoid any danger of losing your ticket or missing out on a prize. Good luck!
