Lottery Winners Stories
Every week millions of people take part in the EuroMillions lottery hoping it will be their ticket to happiness. For Brian Caswell, sharing a EuroMillions jackpot win of £50 million, meant some “me time" at last.
The PlayEuroMillions website Lottery, widely acknowledged as one of the largest, most lucrative and rewarding, most entertaining international lotteries in Europe - and indeed, the world - was conceptualized and brought to life in February 2004 as a joint venture by the national lottery agencies of France (Française de Jeux), Spain (Loterías y Apuestos del Estado - organizers of the famous El Gordo Draw) and the United Kingdom (the UK National Lottery, operated by Camelot).
When the Euro Millions lotto first kicked off, these three countries were the only ones in the draws - but upon noticing the huge potential to be had by being a part of the collaboration, and barely a couple of months after the first draw, another six countries elected to become a part of the EuroMillions draw as well. To date, a total of nine countries pool their revenue generated by ticket sales and channel them towards the jackpot prize, often resulting in huge wins by lucky players – the largest recorded jackpot win to date has been a massive €190 million, won in August 2012 by a couple in Suffolk, England. The countries currently participating in the EuroMillions lottery are as follows:
• Republic of Ireland
• United Kingdom
With the number of countries joining the European Union, it will be a mere matter of time before these countries also decide to throw their chips in with the Euro Lotto (as it's more commonly known as), thus surely equating to even bigger jackpot prizes. Another factor that sets the Euro Millions apart from other international lottos, is that twice a year they hold a special “Super Draw”. What's unique about this draw (besides the guaranteed €100 million jackpot), is that all players only have a week in which to try to match up their selection to the drawn numbers and Lucky Stars in the hopes of securing a win. Should nobody have any luck in netting the main jackpot prize, it will then filter down to the next prize tier and be distributed accordingly. The odds of winning the EuroMillions jackpot are currently 1 in 116,531,800. Although the majority of all Euro Millions players focus on the elusive jackpot, the game actually has 13 prize tiers on offer – so realistically, players have a 1 in 13 chance of walking away with a prize of some sort. Statistically, should one purchase a EuroMillions lottery ticket for every draw in the space of a year, on average you could expect to win a tier prize on 8 occasions.
Taking these facts into consideration, doesn't playing the EuroMillions game just seem all the more tempting? Who knows – perhaps you will be a jackpot winner! PlayEuroMillions.com has made entering international lotteries so much easier – your valid entry is only a few clicks away. What are you waiting for?
