In a rare occurrence, I've actually bought one Euro Millions
ticket for next Friday's draw. It's because not only is the
main jackpot about £105m, but also the Millionaire Raffle will have
a record 100 £1m prizes (the previous highest was 25).
This means UK players could win up to £205m in prizes in total,
which is indeed another record.
As ever, the larger the total money on offer, the exponentially
more UK players buy a ticket (this is why large jackpots are
often won by UK players, but smaller jackpots aren't). So it's
very likely we'll get some UK winners of the £105m main jackpot
too, so the total number of UK millionaires created on Friday
could reach 102, 103 or even higher.
