THE EuroMillions app has crashed tonight, barely half an hour before the last chance to buy a ticket to its biggest jackpot closes.
The app has had a spike in reports that it has gone down just before 7pm, with the website appearing to be down.
It comes just as a jackpot totalling £169m is up for grabs tonight – and could make one Brit the richest National Lottery winner in history.
The eye-watering cash prize comes after it went begging on Tuesday night.
The current record holders for the biggest ever lottery win are Colin and Chris Weir, from Largs in North Ayrshire, Scotland, who won £161 million in 2011.
Andy Carter, The National Lottery’s Senior Winners’ Adviser said: “We’re on standby this Friday night in the hope that we’ll be crowning the biggest ever UK jackpot winner.”
