[Mis à jour le 15 juillet 2022 à 22h09] The Euromillions draw for Friday July 15, 2022 has been made! La Française des jeux offered you the chance to win the exceptional sum of 230 million euros. Unfortunately, no one has won the huge Euromillions prize pool. It will therefore be put into play this Tuesday, July 19, 2022. You can still consult the results of the Euromillions below. And don’t forget to take a look at the drawn MyMillion code. You might just become a millionaire if you get the right one!
The odds of winning the Euromillions are around one in 139 million. It is indeed necessary to tick five numbers among the 50 available on the grid, but also to select two star numbers among the 12 proposed. To multiply the probabilities of winning, you can play several grids. You also increase your chances of finding the correct Mymillion code. This code, made up of two letters and seven numbers, is automatically provided with a grid. With each Euromillions draw, a Mymillion code is selected, guaranteeing a player to become a millionaire.
The Euromillions jackpot offered this Friday, July 15, 2022 is the biggest ever won. So far, the biggest jackpot won had been on October 15, 2021. The Euromillions draw then offered 220 million euros to the lucky lucky one who found the good results of the European kitty! A Frenchwoman had won this beautiful jackpot, becoming the first person in France to win such a large sum at the Euromillions.
What to do with 230 million euros?
Faced with such a sum, many could lose their heads. Some simply let their eccentricity speak for itself, like a British couple, who won, in May 2022, 216 million euros at the Euromillions. Their first purchase, which they unveiled to the British media Sky News, surprised more than one. These were suitcases for traveling with the family as well as a trailer for ponies. The couple said they were motivated by the joy they could see in their children’s eyes if they won.
For others, it might seem normal to share your winnings. A Frenchman went even further. He devoted most of his new fortune to a foundation he created himself in order to save the planet. It was then the second biggest winner in the history of Euromillions with no less than 200 million euros won, in December 2020. His foundation is called and this is the only information that can be found about her. Indeed, Le Parisien explains in its columns that this generous donor wished to remain anonymous. In addition, the winner explained his approach to the regional daily: “What counts are the actions supported by Anyama [le nom de sa fondation] and the positive impact they generate for everyone.”
The 230 million jackpot rolls over a third time
It was the third time that this exceptional jackpot of 230 million euros has been offered at Euromillions. Indeed, no one found the five correct numbers and the two stars, Friday July 8 and Tuesday July 12, 2022. Last Friday, nine Europeans still won the tidy sum of 1.5 million euros each after having identified five correct numbers and one star. Three of them were French. The jackpot is therefore put into play a second time. As no one has found the right combination, the kitty will once again be put into play next Tuesday. It can be replayed up to five times in a row, i.e. until Friday July 22, 2022. Then, the winnings are awarded to the next rank (five correct numbers and a star).
Win… and lose it all
Winning a big lottery win isn’t always a fairy tale. This is particularly the case of Michael Carrol. This Briton was 18 years old, in 2002, when he won 11 million euros in the national lottery. He then leads a pasha’s life: drugs, prostitutes, drugs… In a few years, he squanders his entire fortune, even spending time in prison. Since 2011, he has returned to a “normal” life. He is now a part-time painter. Michael Carrol told The Sun that he made two suicide attempts…
