Someone in Dublin is €500,000 richer after tonight's EuroMillions

Apart from France, EuroMillions tickets can be bought in in Austria, Belgium, Britain, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.

It took a record-breaking run of 18 rollovers, when nobody wins the top prize, to push the jackpot up to its maximum amount, and it then went another four draws before finally being won.

Andy Carter, the senior winners' adviser at The National Lottery, said: "If the jackpot isn't won on Tuesday, it will roll down into the next prize tier where there is at least one victor".

A National Lottery spokesperson said earlier this week: "For the first time in the history of the EuroMillions game, we have reached the €190m maximum jackpot cap for five draws which means that Tuesday's draw is an extra special, must be won event".

With the main prize won, it is the biggest-ever win in British history. The odds against winning are normally 140 million to one, tonight the odds are just seven million to one. If there are no winners at this level, it will roll down to the next tier of winners and so on.

"In an eagerly anticipated draw, there were more than 4.8 million prizes given away in total, but there was only one ticket from all nine participating countries that matched the full winning line to snag the jackpot".

The numbers drawn were 7, 10, 15, 44 and 49. The lucky stars were 3 and 12.
