The biggest ever EuroMillions winner was created in April 2016, when an anonymous lucky player took home a staggering £35million. In January 2016, two fortunate ticket holders walked away with £33million each. Before that, a main Lotto game jackpot of £42million was drawn in January 1996 and divided between three anonymous winners, each banking £14million.
Tonight’s EuroMillions draw will see one lucky player take home a huge £66million.
You can play for the winning prize money every week on Tuesdays and Fridays.
People wanting to take part will need to purchase their tickets before 7.30pm if they want to be entered.
For every EuroMillions ticket you buy, you are also automatically entered into the UK Millionaire Maker game with a guaranteed £1million winner from Britain in every draw.

If you have missed out on tonight’s game but would like to get involved, you should buy a ticket before 7.30pm on Friday, August 15, to be entered.
Traditionally, EuroMillions numbers would only be released on a Friday, but organiser Camelot has since changes its schedule.
Recent rule changes mean players have more opportunity to become a millionaire.
A spokesperson for Camelot said the prize cap has increased as a result of this, meaning people can win more money than before.
In February 2020, the spokesperson said: “More prize money will go into the jackpot – plus there will be a prize cap increase to €200m (up from €190m) – meaning an increased chance of bigger jackpots more often.
“The changes, which will also see more special promotional draws in the year, came into effect from February 1, with the first draw on Tuesday, February 4, 2020.
“EuroMillions UK Millionaire Maker guarantees to create a millionaire in every draw, but in the EuroMillions dew on Tuesday, February 4, an additional 19 lucky winners will be able to look forward to becoming an overnight millionaire.
“For every EuroMillions line played, UK payers automatically receive a EuroMillions Millionaire Maker code printed on their ticket.”

What are the winning numbers on Tuesday, August 11?
The EuroMillions results will be revealed tonight at 8.30pm. Express.co.uk will update this article once the winning numbers are out.

The EuroMillions is a trans-national lottery that requires seven correct numbers to win the jackpot.
It was first launched on February 7, 2004, by France’s Francaise des Jeux, Spain’s Loterias y Apuestas del Estado and the UK’s Camelot.
Initially only Spain, France and Britain took part, but they were soon joined by Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, and Switzerland.
The cost of playing in the UK increased from £1.50 to £2 on November 7, 2009, due to the EUR/GBP exchange rate and automatic entry into its Millionaire Raffle.
