5th December 2020 9:08pm

With the EuroMillions jackpot rolling over once again last Friday night, the jackpot now stands at €200 million ($242M).

We look into the past biggest jackpot winners for Europe's top lottery game. But first, let's see how the jackpot got to it's massive 200 million Euro cap.

Multiple rollovers have taken place since the guaranteed €130 superdraw on November 20th. There were no jackpot winners in that draw, nor any of the three after it.

The jackpot can now remain at the capped 200 million for four draws, with any money that would normally go into the top prize filtering down to the lower prize levels. This means if you match '5+2' numbers your prize will be significantly higher than usual.

Must Win Draw

After the cap has been in place for four draws, the fifth is a 'must be won' draw.

That's where we could be on Friday December 18th if the jackpot isn't won before that!

The very first €190 million jackpot was won in 2012 by a couple from England. Notably they received 'only' £148.6 million due to the strength of the Euro currency at the time. Compare this to the British winners of the same Euro amount in 2019, who took home £170 million.

Winners of the maximum amount have also come from Spain (in 2017) and Portugal in 2014.

Biggest Ever Jackpot

The current EuroMillions jackpot sits atop all of these because it was agreed after the last cap was reached to increase it to €200 million.
