    What is the maximum EuroMilliions jackpot?

    The maximum jackpot prize is capped at €200 million – before conversion – and can alter depending on which country the winner lives in and the value of their currency.

    In the UK, the winner’s prize would be capped around £181.5million.

    That’s an eye watering sum of money.

    How likely am I to win the Millionaire Maker?

    According to the EuroMillions website, there is a 1 in 1,900,000 chance that a player could win the Millionaire Maker game on a Tuesday.

    This shrinks to 1 in approximately 2,250,000 if there is a rollover – meaning no one has won the previous draw’s jackpot.

    On a Friday, it’s estimated that there is a 1 in 2,950,000 chance of winning a guaranteed £1million.

    If there is a quadruple rollover, the odds could fall to 1 in 3,400,000.

    Winning the game depends on the number of payslips sold so the odds fluctuate from game-to-game.

    The odds can also change if there is a special event.

    In March 2019, EuroMillions created 40 UK millionaires in a one-off special draw.

    'Roman-style orgies'

    The self-styled ‘King of Chavs’ was 19 when he scooped £9,736,131 on the National Lottery in November 2002. Part-time binman Michael Carroll, who was wearing an electronic tag when he bought his winning ticket, splashed out on a £340,000 on a six-bedroom home in Norfolk. Not content with the swish property, he lavished £400,000 on a series of upgrades including a swimming pool and a car track in the garden.

    Michael also spent around £1million on shares in his beloved Rangers FC and £49,000 on a BMW. Carroll's wife, Sandra, left him just a month after their wedding in 2003 after being appalled by his incessant partying, accusing him of cheating on her with sex workers.

    She took £1.4million in a settlement – but once she was gone, Michael really dialled up the hedonism with what he called "Roman-style orgies" at his mansion while spending £2,000 on cocaine in a single day.

    “I only started to think about three things – drugs, sex and gold,” he said. “The dealer who introduced me to crack has more of my lotto money than I do."

    He also racked up an Asbo for terrorising his neighbours and spent time in jail for affray and failing to comply with a drug treatment order. By February 2010 Michael was declared bankrupt and was claiming Jobseeker’s Allowance. Now 38, Michael lost his entire fortune and was found working for £10 an hour chopping wood and delivering coal in 2019.

    Financial crash catastrophe

    Roger Griffiths and his wife Lara netted £1.8million on the National Lottery in 2005. He had worked as an IT manager and she as a performing arts teacher but both quit their jobs.

    The couple enjoyed the high life and went on a lavish spending spree splashing £800,000 on a barn conversion in Wetherby, West Yorks., along with flash cars and five-star holidays in Dubai, New York and Monaco.

    Wannabe rock star Roger also spent £25,000 making a record with his old band from Lancaster University. The couple invested in property and a beauty salon but the financial crash saw the value of their portfolio plummet. And on New Year's Eve 2010, the couple's home went up in flames – a disaster which was made worse by the house being underinsured. By 2013 the money had gone and the couple had split up, each blaming each other for the reversal in their fortunes.

    Roger said: “When you’re told you’re a millionaire, it feels limitless. We had played the Lottery for years – when I found out I’d won, it was overwhelming.” Lara has revealed she has to sell her collection of designer handbags to get by.

    Shock of a lifetime

    Sandra Davine got the shock of her life when she realised she hand won £300,000 after initially believing her winnings were just £1,000.

    Stunned Sandra said at the time: "You must be joking. There’s no way."

    A spokesperson for the National Lottery said: "Our days can be made up of little wins that give us a feel-good boost.

    "Maybe you thought you'd lost your keys, but found them in your coat, or maybe you beat your personal best on your morning run.

    "With a scratchcard from The National Lottery, you could get that winning feeling in an instant.

    "Whether it's £1 or £1million, a scratchcard could turn today into a winsday."

    Many players therefore use these same numbers, despite no set of number being mathematically more (or indeed less) likely than any other combination to come out of the machine.

    Spending a penny

    Retirees Dennis and Shirley Banfield appeared to have gone a little potty when plotting how to spend their £18million National Lottery win in 2018.

    The couple from Winterbourne, Bristol, paid for new lavatories at a local community centre after discovering they needed replacing.

    They were determined to give something back after visiting the venue for countless celebrations including wedding receptions, anniversaries and children’s parties.

    In 2019, Denis told the Mirror: “When we read that it needed new toilets, we donated £20,000 for the work and cut the ribbon outside the Ladies and Gents ourselves at an official ceremony

    “We joined a lunch at the centre… and a man got up to use the loo [and] said, ‘I’m just off to use the Banfields’ which really made our day!”

      A fortune brewing

      While most lottery winners would be tempted to splash out on fancy Champagne, Anne Canavan had very different plans.

      The mum, from Northern Ireland, couldn’t believe her luck and felt fate had intervened after her £1million EuroMillions win in 2015.

      On the day she picked the winning numbers, Anne joked with a neighbour that it was “about time someone from around here won”.

      Normally she “always waited a week” before checking her lottery ticket but that night things were different. 

      “At 1am, I suddenly had the urge to check the results so I switched my laptop on, when I realised I’d won I woke my daughter up,” she recalled.

      “It took half an hour to convince her that I wasn’t joking, and after that we stayed up all night with cups of tea planning what to do with the money.”

      Anne went on to spend £50,000 renovating her four-bedroom house and funnelled other funds into inventions – including self-sealing gift pouches.

      The luckiest number

      Number 27 has made more appearances than any other in 3,071 draws in the past ten years making it the best number to have in your row.

      The number came up 399 times in the UK National Lottery, Thunderball, EuroMillions and Irish Lotto.

      The second luckiest is 54, which appeared 387 times. It was followed by 29, 42, 52 and 58 in joint third on 381 times.

      The next luckiest was number 20 with 378. Then came 23, with 372.

      Special win after 'scary' pandemic

      A syndicate of 53 NHS workers won £118,044 on EuroMillions earlier this month.

      They matched five numbers and one lucky star in the October 8 draw.

      The syndicate members are mostly pharmacy staff at Morriston Hospital in Swansea and aged between 20 and 63.

      They have been working flat out during the pandemic.

      Pharmacy technician Kim Owen, 61, said: “It’s been a scary time for all of us so the win is extra special.”

      Members of the syndicate, which is called the Pharmily Crew, will each receive £2,227. Most say they will spend their share on sunshine holidays.

      Explained: How does the millionaire maker work?

      The Euromillions millionaire maker is like a backup if you are not successful with matching the numbers. Instead if your ticket has the matching code to the draw you’ll win.

      According to the EuroMillions website, there is a 1 in 1,900,000 chance that a player could win the Millionaire Maker game on a Tuesday.

      This shrinks to 1 in approximately 2,250,000 if there is a rollover – meaning no one has won the previous draw’s jackpot.

      On a Friday, it’s estimated that there is a 1 in 2,950,000 chance of winning a guaranteed £1million.

      Forgotten luck

      An Australian man unknowingly won the lottery a month ago and has finally come forward to claim his £2.4million prize.

      The ticket holder collected his winnings on Thursday after striking lucky in the Set for Life jackpot that was drawn on October 9.

      He will now be paid £11,000 a month for the next 20 years.

      Because his entry was unregistered, Lotto officials weren’t able to find or contact the man about his winnings and had to wait until he came forward.

      The lucky winner said he had his entry ticket tucked inside his wallet the entire time.
