One lucky person could be on the verge of the biggest lottery win in UK history if they scoop Tuesday’s record EuroMillions draw.

The jackpot is an estimated £184 million, the largest ever up for grabs.

It eclipses the previous top UK prize of £170 million, won by an anonymous EuroMillions ticketholder in 2019.

There have been five UK EuroMillions jackpot winners so far this year, including the anonymous winners of £122 million in April and £111 million in June.

The biggest recent UK winners to go public were Frances and Patrick Connolly, from Northern Ireland, who scooped a £115 million prize in 2019.

No ticketholder won the £174 million EuroMillions jackpot on Friday, meaning the top prize rolled over into Tuesday’s draw.

What are the chances of winning the EuroMillions?

On its website EuroMillions, which is played in nine European countries, says the odds of picking five numbers and the two Lucky Stars is one in 139,838,160.

Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said any winner of the record jackpot would become “part of a national event”.

Those who match five main numbers and one lucky star will iwn more than £130,000, while five main numbers and no lucky stars will win you £13,561.

The draw will take place tonight at 7.45pm.

How to play the EuroMillions online

You can buy EuroMillions tickets online every day from 6am until 11pm, but on draw days (Tuesday and Friday) you will need to buy your ticket before 7.30pm.

To play online, visit the National Lottery website.

You can then fill in your ticket online. Pick five numbers from 1 to 50 and two Lucky Stars from 1 to 12.

You can also opt for a Lucky Dip which will randomly pick numbers for you.

After that you select whether you want to play on Tuesday, Friday, or both days, and select how many weeks you want to play for.

You can play up to seven lines of numbers and buy up to ten plays at a time.

To do so you will need a National Lottery account, which requires an email address and address.

Each play costs £2.50.

How much is £184 million?

Andy Carter, senior winners’ adviser at The National Lottery, said a prize of £184 million “can make a difference for generations and generations to come”.

With that sum under their belt, one UK winner could count themselves richer than the singer Adele, whose net worth is £130 million, according to The Sunday Times Rich List.

They could buy a house in each of the top 10 priciest streets in the UK, including in London’s Kensington Palace Gardens, where the average house price is nearly £30 million.

Can the EuroMillions jackpot get bigger?

The EuroMillions jackpot has reached 220 million euros, at which point it is capped and cannot roll over again.

The jackpot stays at that level for a further four draws if no-one claims the winnings.

It must be won in the fifth draw, and if no ticket matches all the numbers it is shared among all those ticketholders who are one number short. That could result in many new multimillionaires.
