A night for big wins! Approximately €21 million (est) set to flow down to lower prize tier
Daily Million player in Laois becomes 22nd National Lottery millionaire of 2022!
EuroMillions players all over the country are getting ready for their second chance to play for the largest jackpot amount ever seen in a European lottery, as tomorrow night’s jackpot is guaranteed to be capped at an incredible €230 million.
After reaching the astonishing amount in Friday night’s draw, the jackpot will now remain capped at €230 million for up to a further four draws, 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, the full value of the jackpot will flow down to the next tier with a prize winner.
The National Lottery are predicting that tomorrow night’s draw will see an estimated €21 million flow down to the next prize tier which means that the Tuesday night draw could see multiple players become overnight millionaires.
Cap Draw 1: Friday 8th July €230m Jackpot. Jackpot not won.
Cap Draw 2: Tuesday 12th July is Guaranteed €230m Jackpot (if not won, continues at cap in roll to next draw).
Cap Draw 3: Friday 15th July is Guaranteed €230m Jackpot (if not won, continues at cap in roll to next draw).
Cap Draw 4: Tuesday 19th July Guaranteed €230m Jackpot (if not won, continues at cap in roll to next draw).
Cap Draw 5: Friday 22nd July Guaranteed MUST BE WON €230m Jackpot. If no Jackpot winner on the fifth draw at cap, the jackpot fund flows down to the next prize tier with a winner.
Ahead of tomorrow night’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 www.lottery.ie ahead of the 7.30pm cut-off time for sales on Tuesday evening.
A National Lottery spokesperson said: “The EuroMillions jackpot has now officially hit record-breaking levels after reaching the highest amount ever seen in the game last Friday. While Tuesday’s jackpot is guaranteed to be capped at the hugely life-altering 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. While EuroMillions players are sure to be dreaming of becoming Ireland’s newest multi-millionaire, we are encouraging players who are hoping to play, to 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.”
