    The odds of winning the EuroMillions jackpot

    The life-changing jackpot is hard to scoop. With between 80 to 100 million people purchasing a ticket for a EuroMillions draw each week, it proves stiff competition.

    In order to win the cash prize, players need to match all five main numbers and both lucky star numbers.

    But punters only have a 1 in 139,838, 160 chance of bagging the top prize.

    Matching five numbers and one star has odds of 1 in 6,991,908.

    There is a 1 in 22 chance of matching two numbers in the draw.

    The approximate overall odds of winning a prize in EuroMillions are 1 in 13.

    According to the EuroMillions website, the chances of winning the UK Millionaire Maker game can be estimated as 1 in 1,900,000.

    But winning in this game depends entirely on the number of the payslips sold, so the odds therefore fluctuate.

    Youngest EuroMillions winner was just 17

    Jane Park was just 17 when she bagged £1million in prize money after buying her first ever ticket, making her Britain’s youngest EuroMillions winner.

    At the time of her win, she was an admin temp earning £8-an-hour, and was living in a two-bedroom Edinburgh council flat she shared with her mum Linda.

    Jane is an avid football fan and supports Scottish Premier League side Hibernian.

    She has previously remarked that being a millionaire is stressful.

    Speaking to the Sunday People, she said: “I have material things but apart from that my life is empty. What is my purpose in life?”

    “I thought it would make [my life] ten times better but it’s made it ten times worse.

    “I wish I had no money most days.

    “I say to myself, ‘My life would be so much easier if I hadn’t won.’”

    The Catering Girls won big

    A group of NHS dinner ladies who call themselves the “Catering Girls” ditched their jobs after scooping a £25m lottery jackpot in November 2017.

    The lucky six all quit the health service after scooping the EuroMillions prize of £25,476,778.30.

    The “Catering Girls” have been playing together for six years at their hospital in Port Talbot, South Wales.

    They promised to have “one hell of a Christmas”.

    In November 2018 they revealed that despite quitting their jobs, their lives are very much the same despite being millionaires.
