The winning ticket in this year’s Channel Islands' Christmas Lottery – worth more than a million pounds – will be drawn in Guernsey at 18:00.
The jackpot – based on the number of ticket sales – has steadily risen over the past few weeks as Islanders rushed to buy tickets in the hope of become overnight millionaires. In addition to the top prize there’s a 2nd prize of £100,000, a third prize of £25,000, and 10 fourth-place prizes of £10,000.
Profits from the sale of tickets also helps fund good causes in the Islands.
Last year’s top prize which was slightly higher - £1,161,750 – was won by a syndicate of office workers in Jersey.
This year’s top prize though is nothing compared with the Spanish Christmas Lottery – Sorteo Extraordinario de Navidad – in 2012 that was 720 million euros, which at that year’s exchange rate was a whopping £585million!
