EuroMillions Lottery Draws for €60 Million TonightPublished December 20, 2016 by Arthur M
There's an estimated €60 million EuroMillions lottery jackpot up for grabs on Tuesday 20th December and an €81 million EuroJackpot prize being drawn on Friday 23rd.
Some lucky players could be in line for their best ever festive season, with two big European lottery draws taking place in the run up to Christmas, with an €81 million prize up for grabs in the EuroJackpot, while the EuroMillions prize has rolled over to around €60 million.
Although not all countries officially participate in both draws, thanks to online services such as Jackpot.com, anyone with an internet connection can have tickets bought on their behalf, with any winnings sent directly to their chosen bank accounts.
On Tuesday 20th December, the next EuroMillions draw could see someone take home €60 million if they manage to pick the right five numbers from 1 to 50 as well as two correct Lucky Star numbers from 1 to 12. This prize has rolled over 4 times to stand at this level and while there's no guarantee that the jackpot will be claimed this week, there are certain to be UK players winning a fortune with the Millionaire Maker extra game.
Taking place on Friday 23rd December, the EuroJackpot prize will be claimed by anyone who matches five main numbers from a pool of 1 to 50 plus the 2 additional Euro numbers between 1 and 10. Although prizes tend not to be as big as the EuroMillions jackpots, it's an exception this time and with players twice as likely to win, this is certain to be a popular draw in the 16 official countries that take part as well as online around the world.
To play either of these lotteries at Jackpot.com, people simply log in, select their numbers and local agents will purchase tickets on their behalf. The cut-off time for entering is 19.30 GMT on the night of the draw for the EuroMillions and 18.00 GMT for the EuroJackpot, so players should take the time differences into account when buying their tickets.
