There’s a Fabulous February £123m Euromillions Jackpot up for grabs tonight
Fancy becoming the UK’s third biggest National Lottery winner ever?
This Friday’s (8 February) EuroMillions jackpot stands at an incredible £123M*. If won by a single ticket-holder the whopping jackpot would create a fabulous February for the winner as they would become the UK’s third biggest National Lottery winner ever.
According to The Sunday Times Rich List 2018, if one winner scooped the entire £123M jackpot they’d have an immediate ‘bond’ with Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz over their combined fortune, which stands at around £125M. With their newfound wealth the ticket-holder would also ‘floor’ boxing promoter Barry Hearn’s £115M riches.
How would you spend yours?
If the winner chooses to embrace the current winter chill they could head off on the world’s most expensive ski holiday, costing in excess of £1M for a week on the white stuff. The mammoth price tag gets you on board your very own luxury super yacht, MV Cloudbreak, in Greenland, from where you will be flown direct by the yacht’s on-board helicopter to some of the world’s most inaccessible mountains for epic heli skiing sessions.
After a hard day on the slopes, you return to your yacht where you can unwind with a sauna, a swim (the yacht has an indoor and outdoor pool), fine wine and fine dining courtesy of the 22 staff on hand to attend to your every need.
If winter sun is more the winner’s cup of tea they could look into buying their own sun-drenched private island, perfect for a sun-filled break at any time of the year. Spectabilis Island is available in the Bahamas for £47.7M. It has 460 acres with ample room for a private air strip or you could build your own helipad. It’s nestled in the heart of the Caribbean close the homes of some of the world’s most discerning celebrities and billionaires.
Andy Carter, The National Lottery’s Senior Winners’ Adviser said, “Imagine becoming one of Britain’s biggest winners ever. With that giant cheque you’d have more than enough to change the lives of the people close to you and spend your days travelling the globe. In fact, you could do pretty much anything you like!
“EuroMillions players help raise the £30M plus that The National Lottery gives to Good Causes each and every week. This supports projects big and small across the country, including funding everything from local community projects to saving the nation’s heritage.”
UK Winning Streak
UK EuroMillions players have well and truly been on a lucky streak in recent months. In the lead up to Christmas 2018 Andrew Clark from Boston finally came forward after six weeks to claim his £76.3M EuroMillions jackpot, while Patrick and Frances Connolly from Northern Ireland became the UK’s fourth biggest ever National Lottery winners when they scooped the entire £114.9M EuroMillions jackpot on New Year’s Day.
