It’s not just a normal Jackpot in tonight’s EuroMillions draw (Friday, 3 March), it’s a Super Jackpot which is estimated to be a whopping £114m. It’s life-changing money that could see the winner break away on their own private island in the Bahamas.
Winning the cash prize will also put you in a very small group of UK winners who have made more than £100m in pan-European draws. But it is far less than the £195m won by a UK ticket holder last July.
The top prize would be enough to top off some London penthouses and is estimated to hold three million bottles of Moët champagne. And it’s likely that any winner will get through a few bottles of bubbly.

Research carried out for national lottery organizers Camelot shows young people who hit the big win plan to give away around a fifth of their millions. The survey of 2,000 UK adults, conducted by Perspectives Global, revealed that a third of 18 to 29-year-olds would either give their parents cash or pay off family debt.
Meanwhile, 26% said they would donate the money to charities that were important to them, but the same percentage would also splash their newly won cash on a dream vacation. Some 7% said they would invest in ways to fight climate change, while 6% said they would set up their own political party and run as an MP.
Andy Carter, The National Lottery’s Senior Winner Advisor, said: “We’ve paid out to over 6,000 National Lottery millionaires and seen winners go on to buy their dream home, book amazing holidays or even buy their new vacuum cleaner. But without a doubt, seeing the joy that comes from helping family, friends or their local community is what a winner remembers most.
“It’s heartening to see young people want to make a difference to the lives of the people they care about. And with huge wins like Friday’s estimated £114 million jackpot, they can change a lot of lives.”
