Recently, as far as UK players are concerned, the EuroMillions Lottery has dominated Friday nights with huge record-breaking jackpots being given away. However, for this week at least, Friday night becomes Mega Millions night due to the enormous jackpot available in tonight’s draw.

Just a fortnight ago the massive £112 million rollover EuroMillions Mega Jackpot was shared by two lucky ticket holders, one from Spain and one from here in the UK, breaking the current UK record for the single biggest lottery win. Prior to that, the record UK lottery win was set in November of last year, again by EuroMillions ticket holders. This time the record was broken when two ticket holders, both from the UK, shared the £91 million jackpot, winning £45.5 million each. But due to the £112 million jackpot being won just two weeks ago the current EuroMillions jackpot stands at just £25 million.

In stark contrast to the EuroMillions Lottery, the US Mega Millions Lottery has been on a thrifty run, having not given away its top prize for 6 draws since the 2nd of February. This means that the estimated jackpot for the Friday night Mega Millions Lottery draw is a massive $99 million, which you can take as a lump sum cash option of $60.6 million.
