A whopping £157m jackpot is up for grabs in Tuesday's EuroMillions.
The life-changing amount could see one UK player storm straight into third place on the National Lottery’s Rich List and become richer than Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne.
If a single winner scoops the whopping prize they could afford to buy 150 of the new Aston Martin Valhalla with some change to spare.
And if they're looking for somewhere to park one, they could be the proud owner of a quirky mega-mansion on the Isle of Man, on the market for £30m.
The Arragon Mooar Estate comes with an 100 acre farm, three cottages, a 5,000-year-old Neolithic stone circle on the land, and no lockdown rules.
Or if they prefer to make some serious waves, they can treat themselves to a luxury Lamborghini yacht worth £2.7m. Named the ‘Supercar of the Sea’, only 63 of the yachts will be made, with number 12 already being purchased by UFC fighter Connor McGregor.
Their fortune would rival superstar celebrity couples – according to The Sunday Times Rich List 2020, they would be worth more than Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz (£135m) and Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne (£150m).
In fact, they would be nearly five times richer than Sam Smith (£33m) and seven times richer than Stormzy (£20m).
Camelot’s Andy Carter, Senior Winners’ Advisor at The National Lottery, said “What a flipping good pancake day this could be for a lucky UK winner! They would become our 11th winner to win over £100m and the third richest in the Lottery records.
“I’ve had the pleasure of meeting many players that have won big on The National Lottery and the best advice I can give is to take your time to plan out what you want to do with the win and who you want to help out. Don’t rush into buying anything extravagant or giving it all away.
“My team and I have our fingers crossed for all UK players and are on standby to support our big winners as they start their life-changing journey.”
To get an idea of just how big the jackpot is, if the £157m jackpot was laid out in a line of £50 notes, they would stretch 489km, all the way from London to just past Newcastle.
If the £50 notes were piled high, it would be an astonishing 417m of money – equal to two of the Great Pyramids of Giza.
Players are urged to get their tickets before 7.30pm this Tuesday (16 February) to be in with a chance of winning this jaw-dropping jackpot prize.
In the current situation, National Lottery players are encouraged to play online at national-lottery.co.uk or by downloading the National Lottery app, and to only buy their tickets in retail in line with government guidance.
