The winning numbers for tonight's EuroMillions draw have been announced - and a lucky Brit could win a whopping £14million.

The life-changing sum of cash could be yours if you are lucky enough to have five main numbers and two Lucky Stars. But even if you do not scoop the jackpot, there are still hundreds of thousands of pounds to be won if you match fewer numbers. Tonight's winning number are 15, 20, 31, 44, 48 and the Lucky Stars are 1 and 3.

To enter the draw, players need to buy their tickets before 7.30pm - and if you did not get a chance to play tonight, you can still pick up a ticket for Tuesday's draw. Last Tuesday, Camelot announced that a lucky winner scooped a £161million jackpot in Austria.

The Thunderball winning numbers have also been announced tonight. The lucky numbers are 4, 10,11, 12, 25 and the Thunderball is 10.

The odds of winning the EuroMillions jackpot are 1 in 139,838,160. However, there are also 12 other prize tiers, bringing your overall chances of winning a prize to 1 in 13. Players must always pick five numbers from a pool of 50 main numbers and two Lucky Stars from a separate pool of 12 numbers.

The only way to improve your chances of winning is to purchase more entries. For example, if you buy two tickets, you are doubling your chances of landing the jackpot to 2 in 139,838,160, or 1 in 69,919,080. The more tickets you buy, the better your chances of winning.

Unlike the main EuroMillions game, where the odds are constant in every draw, the chances of winning £1 million in the UK Millionaire Maker vary each draw. The Millionaire Maker is a raffle, so the odds are based on ticket sales. The fewer tickets that are sold, the greater the probability of a win.

More tickets are generally sold for Friday draws than Tuesdays, and when the jackpot is large, so the odds of winning the Millionaire Maker are more favourable on a Tuesday. Your chances of winning also increase in those special draws when multiple prizes are put up for grabs, rather than the usual one.

In July, two Brits came forward to claim the £62m EuroMillions prize. Camelot UK Lotteries Limited confirmed it received claims for both of the EuroMillions winning tickets from the draw on July 12. They are each set to get a £31,131,648 share.

The lottery operators have reiterated the claims will go through the process of validation, including checking to ensure the Games Rules Terms and Conditions are adhered to. Subject to validation, the prizes will then be paid at an appointment with one of Camelot’s Winners’ Advisers.
