The next Euro Millions Super Draw is coming up on Friday, March 6th, and if you didn’t know what that was, then it is certainly something worth paying attention to.
Every once in a while the Euro Millions lottery organises a big Super Draw, which involves increasing the size of the jackpot to €100 million, or the equivalent in pounds sterling, for one special draw. No matter what the value of the jackpot prize rolling over into the Friday night draw; the jackpot will be worth a minimum of €100 million for any Euro Millions player who can match all of the drawn numbers. For an extra bit of background knowledge you can also look at the winning number trends from previous Euro Millions Super Draws.
And even if the jackpot is not won on that particular night, then the Super Draw money is not lost forever, as it is kept in the top prize funds until it is won. That is exactly what happened to Neil Trotter at the beginning of last year, as he became the UK’s fourth largest lottery winner after he won a Euro Millions Super Draw jackpot several draws after the actual Super Draw had taken place.
In March 2014, Neil Trotter bought a lucky dip ticket for the Euro Millions draw which contained a jackpot worth £107.9 million after rolling over twice from the Super Draw one week earlier. Mr Trotter matched numbers 6, 24, 25, 27 and 30 along with Lucky Stars 5 and 9 in order to take home the entire top prize.
Since his big win, Mr Trotter has gone on to buy a whole fleet of supercars as well as a mansion with his girlfriend. The Euro Millions winner stopped work almost immediately after winning, and has since spent all the time he could afford following the British Touring Car Championships.
Other Super Draws have been won by players both in the UK and on the continent, with one of the first ones, in November 2013, being won by a single ticket holder in Spain which has been one of the most successful countries when it comes to the Euro Millions Super Draws. That particular Euro Millions Super Draw was worth €100 million, and the Spanish ticket holder matched all of the numbers to take the money home, however they did remain anonymous, with the only details released being that the ticket was sold in Almunecar, a province of Granada.
With the big draw just around the corner now, it could be you who becomes the next winner of one of the biggest Euro Millions Super Draw jackpots.
