Next EuroMillions Superdraw Set For Friday 2nd December
Last Updated: Thursday 27th October 2022, 10:12
The fourth EuroMillions Superdraw of 2022 will go ahead on Friday 2nd December, giving UK players another huge jackpot to aim for in an extraordinary year for big winners.
Big Winners in 2022
Six UK ticket holders have already snapped up the top prize this year. Remarkably, five of those wins have been worth more than £100 million, including the three biggest jackpots in UK lottery history.
Joe and Jess Thwaite from Gloucester were the first to break the old record, landing £184 million on 10th May following a sequence of 14 rollovers in a row. They said they were looking forward to sharing lots of experiences and adventures with friends and family, having taken the tough decision to go public so that they would not have to keep their big news secret from anyone.
Subsequent big winners have stayed anonymous. When a £195 million jackpot was won on 19th July, no more information was revealed about the players who came forward to claim their prize just one day later. Another UK participant pocketed £171 million on 23rd September, slotting in at No.3 on the list of biggest winners.
£112 Million Superdraw Jackpot
The next Superdraw could make another UK player rich beyond their wildest dreams. As with previous Super Jackpots events, the top prize on the night will be worth €130 million. This will be converted to pounds on the day of the draw based on the current exchange rate, but is likely to be around £112 million.
Superdraws create huge jackpots without the need for rollovers, as the money for the top prize is paid for out of the Reserve Fund. It does not matter how much has to be added to the jackpot to top it up to €130 million, even if it is at its minimum value in the preceding draw or has just been won. The advertised jackpot is guaranteed.
If the jackpot isn’t won on the night, it will roll over to the following draw and keep rising until it is won or hits its maximum limit. The jackpot cap currently stands at €240 million (around £208 million). It can only take three or four weeks of rollovers for the jackpot to reach its cap, so it could happen over the festive period.
EuroMillions draws take place every Tuesday and Friday night, and you can check the latest results as soon as the winning numbers have been announced. You’ll also find full prize breakdowns shortly afterwards to find out if the jackpot has been won.
