Euro Millions

euro millions record jackpot total
IT still could be EU! A – whopping £110million jackpot is now up for grabs after another lottery rollover.

Despite a huge clamour for tickets across Europe last week, no one claimed Friday’s – £89million – cash bonanza.

And the sixth rollover has sent ticket sales rocketing as Brits bid to scoop the world’s biggest ever jackpot.

The staggering sum dwarfs the –current British record held by Glasgow postal worker Angela Kelly, who landed – £35.4million in August 2007.

It also beats the £77million EuroMillions record jackpot won on a ticket bought by 45-year-old Dolores McNamara in – Limerick, Ireland, in July 2005.

The odds of striking gold – and becoming richer than mega-bucks celebs Wayne and Coleen Rooney and Katie Price combined – are 76,000,000-1.

But it hasn’t stopped punters flocking to local agents to snap up a £1.50 ticket.

Sales hit a peak of one million an hour in the run-up to Friday’s draw.

A spokesman said: “This could be our –biggest ever sales week.”

On Friday 16 players won £211,152.20 for matching five numbers and one lucky star.

I think it's a bit obscene having a jackpot of this size. Why on earth would anybody ever want that much money, above and beyond greed of course.

I'd make so many charities happy if I won it. I'd be rather happy myself to be honest. Butwhat would you do with such a huge amount of cash? Is it right that one person can scoop the lot?
