EuroMillions & Powerball
– World’s Biggest Jackpots
This European lotto was strong enough to hold its 1st place in theBig until last night when the most recent Powerball lottery drawing pushed it back to the 2nd place when the American lottery announced results late Wednesday night.
After 14 rollovers, the EuroMillions is at its cap and, according to the rule change from February 2012, if a 1st prize winner isn’t found, it will roll down to the next prize level with a winner – meaning secondary prizes can be higher than ever. Camelot, the National Lottery operator, announced that a single jackpot winner will immediately become the 516th wealthiest person in Britain, owning a fortune bigger than that of singer Tom Johns, which, according to sources, is £140 million.
A EuroMillions spokesperson confirmed: “The jackpot has to be won and it promises to be an amazing night. We urge all players to get their tickets early. Only a couple of weeks ago, we created 100 millionaires in one night and this draw could be another golden night with the potential for several multi-millionaires to be made here in the UK on Friday. In addition to the chance to win a life-changing prize, these big draws boost returns to National Lottery Good Causes, with players helping to raise over £30 million every week.”
All this means good news for EuroMillions and Powerball fans with huge jackpots coming their way this weekend! Although the European lottery will not roll over again—awarding a guaranteed jackpot prize tomorrow – and bringing its next cap to €195 million, the American lottery most definitely can continue to grow! EuroMillions offers a tax-free jackpot and guarantees to be distributed on Friday night, both terms not available for Powerball players. As these two lotteries continue to battle for the top spot in theBig, players benefit from some of the highest jackpots in the world.
