£1M EUROMILLIONS PRIZE WON ONLINE, COULD A £112M JACKPOT BE NEXT?
As players across Europe go out and buy tickets for the EuroMillions Superdraw on Friday April 20, a ticket holder from East Sussex on the south coast of England is celebrating winning a million pounds in the April 6 draw.
The lucky EuroMillions winner has asked to remain anonymous, just like the recent couple from Wairarapa in New Zealand who were lucky enough to win $12.5 million playing the New Zealand Lotto last month.
We do know the winner is male and he’s only going to be known as Mr A. He became a lottery millionaire without even touching a ticket as his winning prize via the EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker draw on Friday April 6 came with an online purchase just like the £1m EuroMillions prize won by Mike and Jane Friske from Reedham in England. Also winning online were Taryn and Grant Hawkes from Newquay in England, who used the final £2 in their online account to win £1m via the Millionaire Raffle in the March 3 UK Lotto draw.
Andy Carter at the National Lottery said, “After a few simple clicks he has become a millionaire.” He added that buying tickets online for lotteries such as EuroMillions is becoming increasingly popular due to people “leading busy lives.”
It’s the latest lottery windfall in the county. In Brighton, LGBTQ charity MindOut received a £312,086 Big Lottery Fund grant over next five years for their Age Matters project.
Hopefully there will be a big winner this evening in the EuroMillions Superdraw, whether from a ticket purchased at your local shop or online. The jackpot in the April 20 draw is 130m euros which is around £112m. It’s the first EuroMillions Superdraw of the year and sees a massive rise in the jackpot as Tuesday’s draw only had a top prize of £22,289,222.
It’s the largest jackpot in Europe now and it’s already been a big week for European lottery players after a ticket sold in Sicily won 130.2m euros in Tuesday’s SuperEnalotto draw.If the EuroMillions Superdraw doesn’t produce a winner on Friday April 20, then the jackpot will roll over onto the draw to be held on Tuesday April 24.
That’s the situation we found ourselves in last year, when the EuroMillions Superdraw failed to produce a winner and the top prize kept on getting higher and higher until a ticket sold in Spain won a record €190m EuroMillions jackpot.
