EuroMillions Megadraw Set For Friday 4th February
A EuroMillions Megadraw on Friday 4th February will give players across Ireland and Europe the chance to win a jackpot worth €130 million.
Megadraws, also known as Superdraws, only take place a few times a year. There were four in 2021, and now fans of the game can look forward to playing for another nine-figure prize.
The jackpot will be increased to €130 million, whether Tuesday’s €61 million prize gets won or not. It can then keep rolling over until someone matches all the numbers or until it reaches its cap.
The current jackpot cap is €230 million, following a series of record wins over the past couple of years. A French ticket holder became the biggest EuroMillions winner of all time last October when she won €220 million.
Ireland’s biggest win came back in 2019 when a family from The Naul in Co Dublin scooped €175 million. That followed a Megadraw a couple of weeks earlier, so players will be hoping that history repeats itself this time around.
There has not been an Irish jackpot winner since an online player from the Leinster area snapped up €49 million in July 2020.
New Irish Millionaires
There have been 15 new Irish millionaires in the last three months across various lottery games. The biggest of the lot was the Lotto ticket holder from Castlebar who banked a record €19 million on 15th January.
Three more millionaires were created in the EuroMillions draw on 21st January. This was a special event that worked differently to a Superdraw, with 100 prizes of €1 million paid out across Europe.
Two of the Irish winners came from Cork and the other from Galway. One of the players also matched two main numbers and a Lucky Star on the main EuroMillions game to boost their total payout to €1,000,006.
There could be another millionaire in Friday’s Superdraw, so make sure to take part and then check out the EuroMillions Results straight afterwards to find out if you are a winner.
