EuroMillions is a popular pan-European lottery played in nine different countries on Tuesday and Friday evenings. Launched in February 2004, this lottery regularly offers huge jackpots that can reach as high as €190 million.
How to Win EuroMillions
To play EuroMillions, players select five main numbers from 1 to 50 and two Lucky Stars between 1 and 12. The overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 13, while the odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 139,838,160. To win the jackpot, players must match all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars drawn. There are 13 prize tiers in total, with players needing to match at least two main numbers to win a prize. For more information about the different prize tiers, visit the Prizes page.
The game has a starting jackpot of €17 million and a jackpot cap of €190 million, which has only been reached twice in the game’s history – once in August 2012 by Adrian and Gillian Bayford in the UK and again in October 2014 by a Portuguese player. The jackpot can remain at the cap for four draws before it must be won or is rolled down into the next prize tier with winning players.
