Since 2004, Friday Euro Millions has given players a ray of hope for the start of the weekend, something to help them struggle through the week’s work. For several years, the Friday Euro Millions draw was the only draw of the week but due to its success an additional draw was launched on Tuesdays, the first of which took place in May 2011.
Tens of millions of people watch the results each Friday and watch the draw on live TV, where it is streamed from Paris to the UK. Others don’t bother to watch the live draw and prefer to just check the numbers later on their smartphones or the Internet. Results can also be found by visiting the Euro Millions website at www.euro-millions.com. Additionally a Euro Millions app can be downloaded to a smartphone or tablet.
Perhaps due to the prospect of starting the weekend with a lottery win, the Friday Euro Millions draw always seems to attract more viewers than its Tuesday counterpart. Perhaps people like the idea of winning the lottery, celebrating all weekend, and then quitting their job on Monday morning!
Of course, winning the Tuesday jackpot would be equally as satisfying, but it doesn’t seem to have the same kind of ‘pre-weekend grandeur’ that the Friday Euro Millions draw has.
If you are new to Euro Millions then the easiest way to pick up tickets is to start an account online, where you can put in as little as £5. You can then use that money as you like, spreading it over different weeks of play or buying more lines to improve your chances of a win in a single draw.
Purchasing tickets online gives you exactly the same chance of winning as purchasing them offline and it also means you don’t have the issue of potentially misplacing your ticket or destroying it somehow, as your ticket details will be stored safely with your account.
If you buy a ticket today it is quite possible that you will be a multi-millionaire by next week. Remember, someone has to win!
