If there was ever a time to buy a EuroMillions Superdraw lottery ticket, its NOW, as this Tuesday’s EuroMillions jackpot has ROLLED UP to a record-breaking £167million, and therefore will be the biggest EuroMillions prize EVER!
Friday night’s tenth EuroMillions rollover means that EuroMillions lottery players will have the chance to scoop the highest ever Pound equivalent jackpot figure – a record-breaking £167million (€190 million).
This Tuesday’s colossal EuroMillions jackpot definitely dwarfs last Friday’s night’s £155million top prize that’s for sure and if the top prize of £167million is won by a UK player, it will be the biggest lottery win in British history.
For EuroMillions lottery players who have yet to double check the winning EuroMillions lottery numbers, they were 07, 18, 19, 32 and 48, with the Lucky Star numbers 03 and 07.
Biggest Sterling Jackpot
The biggest EuroMillions win, by a British couple to date is £161million, which was won by Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs, North Ayrshire, in July 2011.
Colin and Chris Weir: £161,653,000
At the time of their record-breaking EuroMillions Colin and Chris Weir said they were 'tickled pink' after becoming the Europe's biggest lottery winners in July 2011.
We can only imagine what it felt like for the lovely couple who were immediately catapulted into the Sunday Times Rich List.
Adrian and Gillian Bayford: £148,656,000
The second biggest EuroMillions winners hailing from the UK were, Adrian and wife Gillian (£148,656,000 based on historic exchange rates)
They told the press that they would repay friends and family who had helped them financially. The couple also said that they would treat themselves to a number of luxury holidays and cars.
While most jackpot winners would be in a state of shock winning such a massive amount of money on the lottery, Adrian still tried to play a joke on Gillian, trying to convince her that he had forgotten to buy a ticket when they were watching the draw and saw their numbers pop up. Eventually he came clean and told her he had bought the ticket.
"I checked the numbers on my phone, the TV, the internet - and we just looked at each other and giggled,” said Gillian.
Although the prize won by Adrian and Gillian Bayford was the maximum possible EuroMillions lotto prize, it was not the largest Sterling amount. Chris and Colin Weir, won €185 million in July 2011, but, due to the favourable exchange rate, received a jackpot pay out of £161,653,000, compared with the Bayfords’ £148,656,000.
