Biggest Lottery payout in history set for Friday night (it's huge!)

EuroMillionsTHE BIGGEST Lottery payout in history has been lined-up for Friday night – a massive £166 million ($267 million).


There was no winner in last night's pan-European EuroMillions draw, boosting the winnings to the new figure.


If it was won by just one ticket holder they would become the biggest lottery winner ever.


In January this year the US Mega Millions jackpot saw a $380 million (£236 million) payout but that was shared by three winners Jim and Carolyn McCullar of Ephrata, WA and Holly Lahti of Rathdrum, ID. They each received $190 million (£118 million) each.


A National Lottery spokesman said: “This Friday's EuroMillions jackpot is now a staggering £166million.”


For the second time in a row no one matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers to win the jackpot.


But under Euromillions rules the gravy train ends on Friday if no-body wins it because the figure of £166 million is the maximum allowed.


The sum will be frozen until a lucky player matches all five main numbers and two Lucky Star numbers to win.


Any prize money which would have boosted the jackpot above that level is passed down to the next prize level in each draw, boosting the payout to those winners, Camelot said.
