Could you become £168million richer tonight?

Britain’s biggest ever Lottery jackpot could be won today after Tuesday’s record breaking £167million EuroMillions prize rolled over.

If a single ticket scoops the top prize, it would create the UK and Europe’s largest ever winner.

According to The Sunday Times Rich List, if one person were to win the entire jackpot they would be ranked the joint 671st richest person in the UK.

They would be richer than Jamie Oliver with his fortune of £150 million and global mega star Adele on £125 million.

Senior winners’ adviser at the National Lottery, Andy Carter, said: “The extraordinary sum would be life-changing whether won by an individual or syndicate, and we have plenty of champagne on ice ready to celebrate.

“It would enable them to transform their life, as well as the lives of their friends and family, and we are ready to support them from the moment they claim.”
