EuroMillions was launched in 2004 as a way to generate huge jackpots and excitement across several different countries. The game initially started with tickets being sold in the UK, France and Spain, before Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland joined a few months later.

EuroMillions players must select five main numbers from 1 to 50 and two Lucky Stars from 1 to 12, which can be done by either choosing the numbers yourself or opting for a 'Lucky Dip'. To win the jackpot, your ticket must match all five winning numbers and both Lucky Stars.

Prizes

EuroMillions jackpots start at €17 million and can reach gigantic proportions as the top prize rolls over every time it is not won, up until €190 million. Once the jackpot reaches this cap, it cannot increase in value and can only stay at this amount four times before it must be won. While the top prize is at €190 million, the funds which would normally go to the jackpot are split between participants in the next highest winning tier until it is won or until the fourth draw has passed. At this point the entire €190 million will also be diverted to the next winning tier and split among players.

The overall odds of the lottery ticket you have purchased winning the EuroMillions jackpot stand at 1 in 139,838,160. However, the overall odds of winning a prize are one in 13, as you can win cash rewards from matching as few as two main numbers. There are 13 different prize tiers, as displayed in the table below:

Numbers Matched Odds of Winning
5 + 2 Lucky Stars 1 in 139,838,160
5 + 1 Lucky Star 1 in 6,991,908
5 1 in 3,107,515
4 + 2 Lucky Stars 1 in 621,503
4 + 1 Lucky Star 1 in 31,076
3 + 2 Lucky Stars 1 in 14,126
4 1 in 13,812
2 + 2 Lucky Stars 1 in 986
3 + 1 Lucky Star 1 in 707
3 1 in 314
1 + 2 Lucky Stars 1 in 188
2 + 1 Lucky Star 1 in 50

EuroMillions Superdraws are held from time to time to offer colossal guaranteed jackpots of €130 million. A special raffle called European Millionaire Maker also takes place a couple of times a year, ensuring that multiple players from across the continent become millionaires. Every player automatically receives a unique raffle code for every line of EuroMillions numbers they play, and a pre-determined number of winners are drawn on the night.

The UK Millionaire Maker game works in the same way and guarantees that two UK players in every draw will win £1 million. Mega Week takes place in the final week of every month, offering even more prizes of £1 million and fabulous non-cash prizes in both the Tuesday and Friday EuroMillions draws. A Monthly Bonus Draw also allows UK ticket holders to play for an additional prize pot of £1 million (the date for the first draw is yet to be announced), and there are various other special draws if you buy your EuroMillions tickets in any of the other participating countries.

Big Winners

EuroMillions has seen many notable winners since its launch in 2004, catapulting players above some celebrities and the aristocracy in terms of wealth. In July 2011, Chris and Colin Weir of Largs in Scotland netted a record-breaking sterling win of £161.6 million ( €185 million). Adrian and Gillian Bayford from the UK won £148.6 million (€190 million) when the jackpot first reached its current cap on August 2012, receiving a smaller sterling amount than the Weirs due to fluctuating exchange rates. A Portuguese ticket holder also won €190 million in October 2014.
