National Lottery draw LIVE: £4.1m Lotto jackpot up for grabs TONIGHT after EuroMillions results revealed

LAST night's rollover was an amazing £110K and it's still up for grabs as no one has claimed the numbers yet.

Because there were no winners on the £98million EuroMillions jackpot this Tuesday, it meant the prize rolled over on Friday night (19 November).

If you did get lucky it would put you among some of the richest people in the UK – and one of the biggest lottery winners ever.

Tonight's draw is the Lotto and could see someone win a huge £4.1 million.

    What happens if no one claims a prize?

    If no UK players come forward within 180 days then the prize money, plus all the interest it has generated while it is held in trust, goes to National Lottery-funded projects across the UK.

    The National Lottery have said: “Our players change the lives of individuals as well as communities by raising, on average, over £33 million for National Lottery-funded projects every week.”

    Top scratchcard to get

    According to Oddschecker, the best scratchcard to snap up is £500 Loaded with odds of just 1 in 3.15.

    For just a fiver you could be in the running for £500.

    In second place, with the same odds, is Full of £500s which also has a top prize of £500.

    Cashword Multiplier follows close behind, which sees punters scratch off letters to reveal symbols to create full words.

    High life

    Roger Griffiths and his wife Lara netted £1.8million on the National Lottery in 2005. He had worked as an IT manager and she as a performing arts teacher but both quit their jobs.

    The couple enjoyed the high life and went on a lavish spending spree splashing £800,000 on a barn conversion in Wetherby, West Yorks., along with flash cars and five-star holidays in Dubai, New York and Monaco.

    Wannabe rock star Roger also spent £25,000 making a record with his old band from Lancaster University. The couple invested in property and a beauty salon but the financial crash saw the value of their portfolio plummet.

    And on New Year’s Eve 2010, the couple’s home went up in flames – a disaster which was made worse by the house being underinsured. By 2013 the money had gone and the couple had split up, each blaming each other for the reversal in their fortunes.

    Roger said: “When you’re told you’re a millionaire, it feels limitless. We had played the Lottery for years – when I found out I’d won, it was overwhelming.”

    Money won't bring happiness

    Martyn and Kay Tott got the shock of their lives when they realised they’d won £3million back in 2001 – six months after buying the ticket.

    By the time they saw an appeal for the winner to come forward, they couldn’t find the ticket.

    After 45 agonising days of deliberating, Camelot told the devastated couple that they weren’t going to receive the cash.

    “Having that money taken away was torture,” Martyn told the Mail on Sunday.

    “For a long time I lost sight of who I was and what I believed in. But I can honestly say I’m glad I didn’t get the £3million now.

    “There is no guarantee it would have brought me happiness.”

    When do the Lotto results come out?

    The winning numbers will be posted on our blog.

      Could luck be down to your star sign…?

      According to the stars, it seems that some of us are much more likely to get it than others.

      Leo – Oh, Leo we knew you’d be one of the lucky ones. You always look good, have a string of admirers and just tend to always be prowling on the bright side of the street.

      Virgo – It’s no coincidence that planner extraordinaire is one of the luckiest signs of the zodiac. Their MI5-level attention to detail and incredible work ethic may make it seem as if things just fall in their lap.

      Scorpio – They’ll often find themselves in the right place at the right time as if by magic, much to the annoyance of some less fortunate souls.

      Explained: Odds of winning the EuroMillions

      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.

      The biggest lost opportunity

      The UK’s biggest unclaimed win was from June 2012, when a Euromillions prize worth £63.8 million.

      The prize money was never picked up by its unfortunate owner.

      The ticket was bought in the Stevenage or Hitchin areas of Hertfordshire but, after the allowed time period to claim expired, the money was instead distributed among charitable causes.
