British hopes destroyed after French player wins largest ever £184m EuroMillions jackpot


In fact, last Friday 8 October, no ticket-holder won the £174 million EuroMillions jackpot, causing the top prize to roll over into Tuesday’s draw.

The amount went unclaimed again after Tuesday’s draw which led to a surge of entries for Friday’s game in the UK.

The winning EuroMillions numbers revealed yesterday were 21, 26, 31, 34, 49 and the Lucky Star numbers were 02 and 05.

The winner, who now has 60 days to claim their prize, would be able to count themselves richer than singer Adele, who has a net worth of £130m, according to The Sunday Times Rich List.

Now, the next jackpot up for grabs on Tuesday sits at an estimated £14m.

Where the ticket was precisely bought or whether the winner is an individual or a syndicate will not be revealed unless the ticket holder decides to go public.

EuroMillions tickets are available in nine European countries – France, Spain, UK, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland.

The biggest recent UK winners to go public were Frances and Patrick Connolly from Northern Ireland, who scooped a £115m prize in 2019.

“Specifically for large amounts of money, £184 million, it’s not just about making a difference to you or your family.

“If you want to, it can make a difference for generations and generations to come.”
