During 2006, the jackpot reached €180M twice before being won. These were the only times that the jackpot grew naturally from drawing to drawing. All others times the jackpot was artificially set as a bonus level amount.
Since '06, three €130 million jackpots were up for grabs. One was in September 2007 and shared by 3 winners. The other two were in 2008 and there were no winners of either of these.
The jackpot never reached €100M in 2009.
But this is the second time the jackpot was established at €129 million in 2010.
So, lets cross our fingers and hope that one of us wins the EuroMillions €129 Million jackpot this coming Friday.
