The prizes are estimated based on the expected sales and number of winners, along with currency exchange rates.
Actual prizes vary each draw, depending on currency exchange rates, the number of tickets sold and how many entries match the same numbers.
The National Lottery website states: ‘If there are more winners than expected in a Prize category, the Prize for that category may be less than the Prize in a lower Prize category.’
Participants voiced their hopes on social media today in anticipation of the big draw.
One Twitter user named ‘Zander’ simply repeated the word ‘please’ 40 times in response to one of The National Lottery’s posts.
In response to the post, the Lottery page said: ‘Well… as you asked so politely Zander. It could be you!’
Another social media user asked: ‘After Brexit will it just be ”Millions”?’
The National Lottery page replied: ‘Hi, you will still be able to play the EuroMillions as an EU membership is not a requirement.
‘You can play the EuroMillions in Switzerland and that is not an EU Member!’
Players must be 16 or over.
