EuroMillions has been carried over, creating the biggest jackpot ever next Tuesday

There were no first-rate winners in the EuroMillions draw held on Friday, October 8. This means that the largest jackpot in its history has now been generated for the next draw on Tuesday, October 12, where a total of €220 million will be up for grabs, which could be won by one single lucky winner.

Loterias y Apuestas del Estado, who runs the lottery, explained in a statement that in the event that there were no first-rate winners in next Tuesday’s Hispanic Day draw, the €220 million would be maintained for four more draws, until October 26.

If there were no winners in the first category after October 26, the jackpot would then automatically go to the next lowest category, in which there was at least one winner. According to Loterias, Spain is one of the luckiest countries since the birth of Euromillions in 2004, with the jackpot won 102 times.


One winner from Las Palmas de Gran Canaria won €190 million on October 6, 2017, the largest jackpot ever won in Spain. In this Friday’s EuroMillions draw there were two successful Second Category tickets (5 + 1) in Spain, each receiving a prize of €166,984.92.

The two winning tickets have been validated at the lottery administration No2 of Hospitalet de Llobregat in Barcelona, located at Calle Major 2; and at No0 in the A Coruña municipality of Santiago de Compostela, located in De la Rosa, 26.

El Millon was won by a ticket validated at the receiving office No43.005 in Marzagan in Las Palmas, located in Plaza de las Nieves, 12, as reported by

Friday’s winning combination: 1 – 10 – 23 – 42 – 46
