There is nothing better than starting the weekend with a whopping £164 million in your pocket – we can’t speak from personal experience but this is an educated guess.
If this is not already tempting, the lucky ticketholder would also be the second biggest National Lottery winner of all time.
They would also be the 14th person to score more than £100 million.
With a jackpot of this size, the world is your oyster. A winner would be able to splurge on their wildest holidays, secure their future, help out loved ones, local communities and charities, just like Frances and Patrick Connolly.
After the Hartlepool couple scooped £115 million in 2019, they have given away over half of their fortune to charitable causes.

When discussing helping others, Frances said: ‘It gives you a buzz and it’s addictive. I’m addicted to it now.’
Previous big winners include Colin and Chris Weir of Ayrshire, who won £161 million in 2011.
The pair are still the biggest winners of a jackpot that chose to publicly claim their prize.
Camelot’s Andy Carter, senior sinners’ advisor at The National Lottery, said: ‘Friday’s jackpot is a wonderful amount of money and a winner could do so much good for their loved ones and the local community.
‘I have seen first hand the difference that winners make transforming people’s lives around them.
‘My team and I have our fingers crossed for all UK players and are on standby to support all our big winners as they start their life-changing journey.’
Players are urged to get their tickets before 7.30pm this evening to be in with a chance of winning.
Current rules state the EuroMillions jackpot is capped when it reaches £195,000.
This is estimated for next Friday, May 13, unless it is won beforehand. It comes after no-one scooped the top EuroMillions prize on Tuesday.
