What is a EuroMillions jackpot must-be-won draw?
As expressed in the Game Guidelines, the jackpot can roll over four more times, but if there is still no jackpot winner in the final draw - the fifth successive draw when the jackpot is €190 million - the full amount is split between the winners in the next tier. In the fifth draw, despite the fact that there are no players matching all numbers, the whole Big stake prize is guaranteed to be given out and move down to the following winning level (probably Match 5 + 1 Fortunate Star). In this way, the draw on Tuesday 8th October is known as a must-be-won draw. Also, this possibly implies various multimillionaires can be made in a single draw.
Andy Carter, the senior winners' adviser at The National Lottery, said that Tuesday's draw "must be won".
He said: "This means, if the jackpot isn't won on Tuesday, it will roll down into the next prize tier where there is at least one winner.
"If the jackpot is won, it could create the UK's biggest ever winner.”
"As the jackpot is now capped, tonight's draw has seen eight players bank bigger prizes for matching five numbers and just one Lucky Star. Three lucky UK players each won £1.8m."
At the point when EuroMillions was propelled in 2004, the game was at first constrained to a limit of 11 successive rollovers, with no top on the big stake prize store. On the off chance that no player effectively coordinated with each of the five fundamental numbers and two Fortunate Stars to win the top prize in the twelfth draw, the cash would move down to be appropriated to the following prize level with winning players.
Players may ask: "Could the Jackpot Cap Change?” The answer is “maybe”.
The UK EuroMillions game procedures contain a term that allows it to be flexible in the future, stating "Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners can change the level of the jackpot cap at any time".
How difficult it is to win a EuroMillions jackpot?
First and foremost, you need to figure out the rules of EuroMillions.
The lottery follows a 5/50 and 2/12 format, which means you choose 5 main numbers from a possible 50 and 2 bonus numbers (known as Lucky Stars) from a possible 12.
The jackpot goes to the player(s) who hits all 7 numbers.

Some tips for increasing the odds of winning Euromillions
There are no magic combinations, such as playing only odd or even numbers, repeating winning lines or choosing lines that have not yet come out. All combinations are equally likely to be drawn.
These tips take into account two aspects: 1) the prize, because it represents the value to be distributed; and 2) dividing such prize with the least number of people possible. It is the only way to increase the odds of earning more but at the same time spending the same amount of money on your bet.
Firstly, it’s not a bad idea to bet only when the jackpot has a high value, for example, the must-be-won prize. As the cost of the bet does not change, but the expected return increases. However do keep in mind that high jackpots attract more bettors, and thus increase the likelihood of prizes being split. You can also increase your odds by joining up with three friends to create a syndicate. A syndicate is made up of a group of people putting their money in a pot to buy more tickets and hence increasing their chances of hitting the big win.
Secondly, take a chance on 'unpopular' numbers. All the numbers have the same chance of being drawn. However, the fewer people play them, the less the prize amount you have to split.
