Europe’s biggest ever lottery prize up for grabs once again as tonight’s EuroMillions jackpot remains capped at €230 million
A night for big wins! Approximately €21 million (est) set to flow down to lower prize tier
EuroMillions players all over the country are getting ready for their fourth chance to play for the biggest jackpot amount ever seen in a European lottery, as tonight’s jackpot is guaranteed to be capped at an incredible €230 million.
Should a single Irish player match all the numbers in Tuesday's draw, they would become more than three times richer than singer Niall Horan, who has an estimated net wealth of €68 million. ($70 million)
After already rolling over three times at the cap, the jackpot will remain capped at €230 million for up to one further draw, with the additional funds that would have gone to the jackpot now flowing down to the next prize tier with a winner. If the jackpot is still not won after the fifth draw at the cap on Friday, the full value of the jackpot MUST be won and will flow down to the next tier with a prize winner.
The National Lottery are predicting that tonight’s draw will see an estimated €21 million flow down to the next prize tier which means that Tuesday night’s draw could see multiple players become overnight millionaires. From Friday night’s draw 14 players across the EuroMillions community became overnight millionaires after sharing a whopping €26.3 Million (just over €1.8 million each).
Ahead of tonight’s highly anticipated draw, the National Lottery are urging players who are dreaming of becoming Ireland’s newest multi-millionaire to purchase their tickets early. EuroMillions players are reminded that tickets can be purchased in-store, through the National Lottery app or at http://www.lottery.ie/ ahead of the 7.30pm cut-off time for sales on Tuesday evening.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “Imagine being three times richer than Niall Horan? Well that dream could become a reality tonight as the EuroMillions jackpot remains capped at the historic amount of €230 million. Players will also have the chance to win even bigger than usual at a lower prize tier. As the jackpot is capped at €230 million, the additional funds that would usually be added to the jackpot will now flow down to the next prize tier at which there is a winner and in tomorrow night’s draw, we estimate this figure to be in the region of €21 million. This means that we could see a number of millionaires being made after tomorrow night’s draw – and that’s even if the jackpot isn’t won!”
“If a player in Ireland were to win the massive jackpot amount tomorrow night, they would take the title of 18th EuroMillions jackpot winner ever seen in Ireland. Players who hope to be in with a chance of winning can purchase their tickets early either in-store, through the National Lottery app or at www.lottery.ie ahead of the 7.30pm deadline for ticket sales tomorrow evening.”
