Brits Go Mad For £85m Lotto Jackpot

The lottery prize, drawn on Friday evenings, has rolled over nine weeks in a row.

If a ticket holder picks the right numbers this week, they could be in for a whopping £85m to line their pockets. Lotto organisers Camelot say shops have been printing tickets hand-over-fist, reaching an enormous 100,000 per hour so far.

But if no one scoops the jackpot this Friday, the prize fund could race over £100m by next week.

Sadly though, the odds of winning are a depressing 76 million to one - more than five times the chance of winning the original Lotto jackpot on Saturday night.

The odds may well be high but if someone has to win it, I'll reluctantly accept it  Wink

In which case, 'Brits' going mad is wrong, because the draw covers most of Europe...

not just Brits going mad ... it is EUR125 million ( a much more impressive sounding and looking number even though it is the same in real terms ) and I fully intend to win it tomorrow night . I will then retire to my own private island from where I ( and my harem of hunky 'employees' ) shall bombard the non-Av forum with "hah hah , suckers!" postings until I am banned for life by the mods

If i do win the lot, im not gonna hide away on a desert island, im gonna launch my own airline Big grin
