EuroMillions Superdraw postponed due to mega jackpot
It seemed like it came from nowhere. EuroMillions has got the continent in suspense after the jackpot rolled over to a massive £95,000,00, exceeding the Superdraw starting jackpot.
The Superdraw was supposed to be held on Friday 6 June. However, for the first time in EuroMillions history, organisers had to postpone it to another date. How is this possible? Are the guaranteed prize pool of a hundred millions euros gone? Not to worry! The Superdraw jackpot pool has not been wasted, only postponed to a not yet announced date.
In the EuroMillions Superdraw the first tier of the jackpot is set in advance at €100 million. For the first time ever the jackpot exceeded this amount on the day of the Superdraw.
The Superdraws are normally announced in advance and are held to celebrate special events - such as this year's World Cup. The funds for the Superdraws are raised through normal draws and a special fund. By doing so, the organisers are able to gather the funds to hold Superdraws.
Because the Superdraw was postponed, this money will not be spent on this week's already massive jackpot. Instead it will be postponed to a later day. This is good news for any EuroMillions player as it means you will have at least two chances this year at winning a jackpot of epic proportions.
Last Friday's draw saw the following numbers drawn: 7, 25, 34, 40, 49 and the two Star numbers 9 and 11. As no one had the correct numbers, the jackpot rolled over to its current size - a hefty £95 million. The last time someone hit the jackpot was on May 2, 2014. That means the jackpot has been growing in size since then.
The lack of jackpot winners does not mean there has been a general lack of winners. For example, in last Friday's draw four people hit the second prize tier, winning £476,502 each. A total of 19 people landed in the third prize tier by matching five numbers and 0 star numbers, which earned every winner £33,438.
It's safe to say Europe has got lotto fever at the moment and a lot of people will be competing for the jackpot.
