Play EuroMillions - How to Play

EuroMillions is a European lottery that was launched in February 2004 by Camelot Group plc, the UK lottery, La Francaise des Jeux, the French lottery, and Lotercas y Apuestas del Estado, the Spanish lottery. Six other European lotteries, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland have now joined to make one MASSIVE EuroMillions jackpot!

How Do I Win?

Each Tuesday and Friday there is one common EuroMillions draw for all participating countries, consisting of a random drawing of 5 of the 50 main numbers and 2 of the 12 Lucky Star numbers. If you match 5 main numbers and 2 Lucky Star numbers, you win the Jackpot or if another player has the same numbers the Jackpot is shared equally. Please note: Your main numbers can only be matched with the main numbers drawn, and your Lucky Star numbers can only be matched with the Lucky Star numbers drawn. The EuroMillions draw takes place in Paris and is broadcast on many European TV stations.

If in any draw there is no winner of the top prize category (5 + 2), the prize money for that category rolls over to that same category for the next draw for a maximum of 11 (eleven) successive draws.

If there is no winner of the top prize category (5 + 2) after twelve successive draws, the total amount of the prize money in that category for the twelfth draw is allocated to the next highest prize category where there is at least one winner for that twelfth draw.

However, if there is no winner in any prize category, the prize money is allocated to the top prize category for the next draw, where the roll down rule will be applied again.

If there is no winner of the lowest prize category (2 + 1) the prize money for that category is allocated to the Jackpot for the next draw.

How Much Can I Win?

The EuroMillions Jackpot prize will start at € 15 million.

Prizes paid in each category will be pari-mutuel i.e. the prize pool for that category will be shared equally
