Friday’s EuroMillions jackpot stands at an estimated £164 million – meaning if it is scooped by a British player they will become the UK’s second-biggest winner
The current British record holder won £170million in October 2019.
Camelot’s Andy Carter said Friday’s top prize could be secured by one ticketholder or shared between multiple winners in participating countries.
Mr Carter said: “Friday’s EuroMillions draw is set to be an exciting night as the jackpot will be a gigantic estimated £164million.
“If one lucky ticket-holder scoops the jackpot, they will become the second biggest-ever National Lottery winner so we’re urging players to get their tickets early to be in with a chance of winning this incredible prize.
“National Lottery players make a huge difference to National Lottery Good Causes across the country generating more than £30million every week.
“Thanks to National Lottery players, over £1.2billion has been distributed to date across the UK to help tackle the impact of coronavirus.”
