The estimated Euromillions jackpot is £143 Million for Tuesday 21st October

After five successive rollovers, the Euromillions jackpot for the draw taking place on Tuesday 21st October is an estimated £143 Million.

Even a fraction of that unfathomable sum would undoubtedly have most people popping open the bubbley and lotto fever is certain to see an increase in ticket sales as people play extra lines in the hope of landing the big prize.

Many lotto players will be avoiding the big queues by playing online, where you can pick up free lotto offers and increase your chances of winning with extra tickets or reduce the cost of playing with discounted purchases.

Tuesday's £143 Million jackpot is one of the biggest ever prizes offered by Euromillions. Since the innaugural draw took place on Friday 13th February 2004 only twice has a bigger jackpot than the one on offer this week been won.

In August 2012 a single winner from the UK scooped a jaw-dropping £148,656,000, which came just over a year after another lucky lotto player from the British Isles landed a massive £161,653,000.

UK players of Euromillions have had their fair share of luck over the years with four appearances in the top ten all-time biggest jackpot winners. Each of those UK winners netted over £100 Million, the most recent of which was landed in March this year 15% of Euromillions jackpot wins have been claimed by UK residents.

Perhaps Tuesday will see another UK player appear in the top ten, but you've got to be in it to win it! Get your tickets online in minutes and take the hassle out of playing then start dreaming of what you'll buy first if you win.
