The biggest ever Euromillions lottery jackpot is still up for grabs tonight, July 15, after nobody won it in the last draw earlier this week.
The prize money has reached a record of £191 million, Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery said.
As the current £191m prize has reached its limit, any money that would have been added to it will instead go into the next jackpot.

If one UK winner bags the entire EuroMillions jackpot, they would immediately become the UK’s biggest-ever winner, knocking recent £184m winners Joe and Jess Thwaite off the top spot after they scooped the record breaking jackpot only two months ago.
A single winner would not only become The National Lottery’s biggest winner of all time but also the 15th winner of over £100m in the UK.
Even runners with five main numbers could be paid £13,561.20, while those with four main stars and two lucky stars will collect a prize of £844.70.
Camelot’s Andy Carter said: “I have met winners that love cars, I have met winners that love holidays and I have met winners that love gadgets and what better gadget than the ride-on mower!
“A winner of this mega £191M jackpot could buy any gadget they could think of, for as many loved ones as they wanted – imagine that!?"
A win tonight would be the fourth EuroMillions jackpot won in this country in 2022.

It would also mean that the UK would become the luckiest EuroMillions nation.
The EuroMillions jackpot reached cap on Friday 8 July and can’t get any bigger. The EuroMillions jackpot is capped once it reaches 230 Million Euros.
When the jackpot is at its cap, players matching five main numbers and one Lucky Star number can expect bigger prizes.
This is because any money that would have gone into boosting the jackpot, will be shared among players in the next prize tier with winners – most likely players matching the five main numbers plus one Lucky Star number.
Once it reaches the cap and assuming it continues not to be won, the jackpot will stay at 230 Million Euros for a further four draws until it has to be won in the fifth draw on Friday 22 July.
In a EuroMillions ‘Must Be Won’ draw, if no ticket matches all the five main numbers and two Lucky Stars numbers, the entire jackpot prize will roll down into the prize tier where there is at least one winner.
