French Loto Prizes
Most French Loto prizes are pari-mutuel, meaning that their cash value will vary from draw to draw depending on the number of players in a given winning tier. The jackpot is always a fixed amount and the prize for matching the Chance number is set as a €2 reimbursement on the ticket purchased. Here’s a table showing each winning tier, odds of winning and prize fund allocations.
