Last night’s EuroMillions draw was the last draw before a guaranteed UK millionaire is made every single week but two new lottery millionaires were made nevertheless. Last night saw the UK lottery record smashed twice, with just two lucky ticket holders sharing the £91 million EuroMillions jackpot and both ticket holders were from the UK.

The previous single-biggest lottery win in the UK was £35.4 million for Glasgow postal worker Angela Kelly in August 2007. However the UK lottery record was convincingly smashed by over £10 million twice in one lottery draw providing both tickets are solely owned. If the tickets are part of an official lottery syndicate then the £35.4 million record will remain. Last ‘s EuroMillions draw was a special draw in itself, even before creating two new UK lottery winners, as it was the 300th drawing of the EuroMillions pan-European lottery. Last night’s EuroMillions lottery numbers were; 19, 43, 45, 34 and 11 with lucky stars 5 and 9 also being drawn.

Last night’s 300th EuroMillions draw was also the last time that UK players could buy tickets for £1.50. From today onwards all EuroMillions tickets sold in the UK will cost £2.00 but the price of entering the EuroMillions lottery hasn’t gone up the extra 50p now goes towards making a new UK lottery millionaire every single week. The new EuroMillions Millionaire Raffle gives every a unique raffle number for every line of EuroMillions numbers bought. During Friday night EuroMillions draws there will be an additional draw, specifically for UK players, in which one unique raffle number will be drawn and if the unique number matches the one on your ticket you are a new lottery millionaire.
