The record-breaking £184 million Euromillions lottery jackpot is still up for grabs.

A second draw to find a winner will now take place, after Tuesday's event failed to identify any ticket holders with the matching numbers.

The Euromillions jackpot has reached its cap after a record number of roll overs this month and it now stands at €220 million - equivalent to about £184 million.

No more money can be added to the winning pot as the absolute maximum has been reached, but there are now five opportunities for players to win, which have begun this week.

Nine countries currently play the Euromillions lottery and to win the jackpot ticket holders need to match five numbers alongside two Lucky Star numbers.

Tuesday's numbers were 6, 13, 22, 45 and 49 plus the Lucky Stars 10 and 11 - but no ticket had all seven figures.

If a UK-based ticketholder were to win the top prize they would become Britain's biggest ever lottery winner and find themselves richer than musicians including Adele, Chris Martin from Coldplay and former One Direction band member Harry Styles.

The next Euromillions lottery draw will now take place on Friday evening at 8.45pm.

Players who wish to purchase a ticket, which can be done online, in person at participating shops or via the National Lottery app have until 7.30pm to grab their tickets.

The National Lottery said on Tuesday that there had been a sudden influx of people keen to purchase Euromillions tickets before the evening's record-breaking draw.

Friday night's event, which can be watched online, will be the second opportunity for someone to win the enormous sum of money - and if that doesn't find a winner with all seven numbers the money will be held again and put up for grabs in further Euromillions draws next week.

But the eye-watering jackpot must be won by the fifth draw and so if no ticket holder by then has matched the required five numbers and two Lucky Stars, the money will be moved down to the next prize tier where there should be at least one winner who is more likely to have five main numbers but just one Lucky Star.

This could result in the £184m jackpot being potentially split between a number of new multimillionaires.
