EuroMillions Jackpot Reaches €79 Million

No tickets matched the EuroMillions lottery jackpot on Friday 27th February, so it has rolled over to an estimated €79 million.

There are many lotteries in play around the world, some with massive jackpot prizes for the lucky holders of the winning tickets. Currently, the biggest jackpot worldwide is the €79 million EuroMillions prize that has come about due to the fact that no one matched all the numbers on Friday 27th February.

About the EuroMillions

The first EuroMillions draw took place on February 13th 2004, with France, Spain and the UK being the only countries taking part. Soon, others joined up and the lottery is now played across 13 countries, although in recent years online lottery tickets services like The Lotter and Lottery Master have opened this and many other draws to a worldwide player base.

EuroMillions draws take place in Paris at 20.45 CET on Tuesdays and Fridays, with a jackpot winning ticket needing to match five main numbers from 1 to 50, plus 2 Lucky Star numbers from between 1 and 11. The EuroMillions is known for rolling over multiple times, and has on occasion paid out jackpots of €190,000,000 which is the maximum level possible. Other than the jackpot, players win for getting five numbers and one Lucky Star, the main numbers only, and so on, down to a prize of around €4 for matching two numbers.

Although officially only residents of participating countries can enter the EuroMillions draw, thanks to online lottery tickets agents like The Lotter and Lottery Master, the winning prize could go to someone virtually anywhere in the world. These services work by having representatives in Europe, the USA, Australia and so on, who buy the tickets on behalf of players who have selected their numbers online.

Should a ticket win, the prize of forwarded to the player who picked the right online lottery tickets, and with all the major draws featured at these sites it is a quick and convenient way to go for the biggest prizes.
