COME HELL OR HIGH water, tonight’s €190 million Euromillions will be given away.
The jackpot has been on a rollover since 12 June and hit a new record on Tuesday evening when it hit the €190m mark. It’s been capped at that amount, and under the rules of Euromillions it could only roll once more.
That means that tonight, it must be won.
If there’s no winner who manages to match all five winning numbers and the all important two lucky stars tonight, then the jackpot will flow down to the winners in the next prize category, which is five winning numbers and one star.
The draw has the potential to create many multi-millionaires.
Anyone who wants to play has until 7.30pm tonight to do so and be in with a chance of following in Dolores McNamara’s footsteps. The Limerick woman is the largest individual winner of Euromillions in the game’s history.
She pocketed over €115 million in July 2005, winning on a €2 quick-pick ticket.
