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 until it reaches its maximum jackpot of €210 Million. Once it reaches this amount, the jackpot can remain the same for four consecutive draws, after which, if not won, the prize money rolls down to be divided between the winners of the next highest prize tier.
How Much Can I Win?
The EuroMillions Jackpot prize will start at €17 million.
Prizes paid in each category will be pari-mutuel i.e. the prize pool for that category will be shared equally.
There are also thirteen other ways to win a prize, see below for all winning combinations.
