Jackpot Prizes History
In the jackpot type, all prizes, including the jackpot, are tax-free (except in
Switzerland) and are paid as a lump sum. On August 10, 2012, the largest EuroMillions
Jackpot ever which amounts to a total of €190million was won for Draw Number 510.
Only one ticket had the winning numbers, the lucky ticket holders that scooped the
impressive €190 million (£148 million), were Adrian and Gillian Bayford from Suffolk
in England. The largest single Sterling winner of Euromillions. Due to differences
in the exchange rate, the largest single Sterling winner of Euromillions, totaled
to a jackpot of £161,653,000 (€185,000,000). The happy winners were Christine and
Colin Weir from Largs in Scotland. It was drawn the 12th July 2011 (draw number
397). In March 2011, two winning tickets—one from Belgium and the other from Portugal—shared
a jackpot of €138,210,533 (£121,722,017). On October 8 2010, one UK ticket holder
won a jackpot of £113,019,926 (€129,818,431).This winner chose to remain anonymous.

drawing if not won but an Event Draw jackpot will be distributed amongst the winners
in the next lower tier (i.e. match 5 + 1).
The draws are held in Paris, on Tuesdays at 21:00, and on Fridays at 21:00.

without realizing she was a millionaire
Jane O’Brien was a millionaire for three months before realizing it after carrying
around a jackpot lottery ticket in her handbag. It wasn’t until 12 weeks after buying
the winning EuroMillions raffle ticket that the 36-year-old checked it over breakfast
and discovered she was suddenly very wealthy.
The Transport for London traffic operator from Ruislip, Middlesex, left the cool
million unclaimed for more than three months following the May 10 draw and could
have missed the 180-day deadline for claiming prizes had she not cleared out her
She was dumping old paperwork from her handbag when she came across the ticket.
As she checked the results online, Miss O'Brien realized her lucky dip ticket had
matched the Millionaire Raffle prize.
Before the win, thrifty Jane had been working double-shifts to pay for a planned
trip to New York in November. She was then unaware a whopping £1m pounds prize was
sitting in her handbag.
