£141m EuroMillions jackpot to be won in Tuesday’s lottery draw

If you’ve got a lucky feeling today you might want to get online or down the newsagent as a huge EuroMillions jackpot is up for grabs.

The £141 million prize could make a single ticket-holder the UK’s third biggest ever lottery winner.

The mammoth estimated jackpot for Tuesday night’s draw would leave a single player who matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers the 793rd richest person on the Sunday Times Rich List.

If won, the £141m jackpot would be the first to be won in 2018.

Players have until 7.30pm to buy a ticket.

Andy Carter, the National Lottery’s senior winners’ adviser, said: “With a £141 million win, you could live the life normally reserved for the rich and famous, including rock stars.

“It would afford anyone the kind of lifestyle that most can only dream of.”

Here are the biggest jackpot wins for players in the UK:

– In July 2011, Colin and Chris Weir became Europe’s biggest lottery winners when they scooped more than £161 million. They made a £1 million donation to the SNP shortly after winning.

– Adrian and Gillian Bayford, from Suffolk, took home more than £148 million in August 2012.

– An unnamed ticket-holder claimed just over £113 million in October 2010, and chose not go public.

– Neil Trotter, from Coulsdon, south London, won nearly £108 million, going from former car mechanic to multimillionaire in March 2014.

– A couple from Cambridgeshire, Dave and Angela Dawes, won more than £101 million on their third go on the EuroMillions draw in October 2011. Mr Dawes said he “didn’t sleep a wink” the night of the win, as it was too late to call Camelot after the couple checked their numbers.

– A UK winner got a £93 million payout in June 2015, but decided to remain anonymous.
