Two Share Monster EuroMillions Jackpot

What a way to start the year! Since the New Year the EuroMillions jackpot has been climbing, reaching a staggering €177,000,000 for Friday’s draw. It’s almost the biggest it could ever be, and it may well turn out to be the biggest jackpot of the year and now we have news of a winner… or two!

Two lucky players matched all seven numbers in the Friday’s EuroMillions, sharing that monster jackpot equally. The winning tickets were sold in the UK and Spain. If you haven’t yet checked Friday’s numbers, it’s time to do so particularly if you are from either country as you may be sitting on a half share of a monster EuroMillions jackpot!

With such a staggering jackpot, a half share is a life changing sum. When the Spanish winner comes forward he or she will collect a massive euro amount of €88,862,248, becoming the country’s 85th big EuroMillions winner. The British winner collects £77,798,898 for the sterling pay out, becoming the UK’s 71st big EuroMillions winner.

Neither winner has yet come forward to present their tickets to lottery officials, but that isn’t all that surprising and it could take a few days. However, if you have tickets and haven’t checked the numbers, you should probably do so now to see if you’re a big winner.

After the big prize the EuroMillions jackpot will be reset for the next draw, back to a base jackpot of €17,000,000. We can only hope that this first jackpot of the year sets the tone for an exciting and prize winning 2018 for EuroMillions players!
