EuroMillions £123m Easter jackpot could make you richer than Coldplay’s frontman

A whopping £123m EuroMillions jackpot is up for grabs on Good Friday and could make you richer than Chris Martin from Coldplay.

The gigantic sum would fix you up to be the 972nd richest person in the UK even if you can't sing for supper.

And you'll never be yellow again as it is worth more than 1,000 golden goose eggs and could buy your pick of Championship football clubs.

Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said: “Players can begin to get ‘egg-cited’ about the possibility of banking this enormous EuroMillions prize.

"One UK winner would make it an Easter to remember for their loved ones. Our team has the champagne on ice and are looking forward to supporting the winner throughout this life-changing journey.”

A Camelot spokesman added winning would be "singing a hymn for the weekend" by becoming richer than Chris Martin from Coldplay, who is worth £105m.

Holding the only winning ticket would make you the National Lottery’s fourth biggest ever winner of all time.

The over-night millionaire would be two places above Frances Connolly who recently revealed she had given away an estimated £60m of her fortune to family, friends, the local community and charity. Frances and her husband won £114m in January 2019.

There is also a Saturday Lotto’s draw with a £12.5m ‘Must Be Won’ jackpot.

It comes after Lottery winner Neil Smart almost missed his £1,000,000 EuroMillions win because he thought it was a scam.

50-year-old Neil, who works at a builder’s merchants, matched the EuroMillions Millionaire Maker code on Friday, March 26. But the father of three didn’t check the National Lottery app straight away and only saw he had an important message from Camelot urging him to check his account two days later.

"I don’t check religiously and only got around to it on Sunday night," he explained.

When Neil logged into the National Lottery app on his phone he saw a message which read: "Congratulations you’ve won £1m."

"I thought it was a scam and called my daughter to read it," Neil said.

"We both thought it couldn’t be real, even though it was clearly on the National Lottery app and wasn’t just some random email."

Neil’s daughter posted on their family group chat that Neil had won the lottery and his wife Sue immediately replied saying it "was probably just a fiver".

But it wasn’t a fiver. Instead, the husband and wife from Devon are celebrating a £1,000,000 EuroMillions win which they say will make a huge difference to them and their wider family.
