HOW DO I WIN THE EUROMILLIONS JACKPOT?
EuroMillions is a trans-European lotto originally founded by Britain, France and Spain. It then expanded to nine participating countries. In 2004 Ireland, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Luxembourg and Portugal joined raising the lotto's profile, and its prize pool, dramatically. The game is also playable by citizens of the Isle of Man, Liechtenstein, Monaco and Andorra.
To bet on EuroMillions you select five regular numbers from 1-50 plus two star numbers from 1-12. For more detailed information on betting please see our EuroMillions Rules page.
The odds of having a EuroMillions winning ticket of any amount is 1 in 13. Your chance of being a EuroMillions jackpot winner by matching all 5 normal balls and 2 Lucky Star balls is about 1 in 139,838,160.
For a full breakdown of the different odds of winning see our odds and statistics page. To get a full breakdown of prizes, meanwhile, check out EuroMillions Results page.
You can only buy UK EuroMillions tickets offline from licensed British dealers or online through the National Lottery. At Lottoland EuroMillions UK, however, you bet on the results from anywhere in Europe. (Ideal for British expats or those who don't want to miss EuroMillions on holiday.)
With Lottoland your funds are fully guaranteed by leading insurance providers when you win. It should be noted, however, that this type of online betting is still prohibited in certain countries, most notably the United States.
If you are a British resident buying a UK EuroMillions ticket then you will not pay taxes on any winnings and will receive the entire amount as a lump sum. If you are the resident of another country playing UK EuroMillions then the prize might be taxed, depending upon the relevant taxation laws. Some EuroMillions countries, such as Spain, Portugal and Switzerland, now tax lottery winnings. When betting at Lottoland you will pay no taxes on your winnings.
In the UK you must be 16 years old to play the lottery. At Lottoland you must be 18 years old to bet on EuroMillions.
Checking your numbers on our EuroMillions automatic number checker is the quickest and easiest way to tell if you are a winner. If you register to bet on EuroMillions with Lottoland then you will have the winning numbers emailed to you directly after the draw, whether or not you have chosen correctly.
The biggest EuroMillions jackpot of all time is €190 million, or approximately £142 million. This is the maximum amount you can win. It was first won by Adrian and Gillian Bayford in 2012. Two years later an anonymous Portuguese player also won the prize but, due to Portuguese law, had to pay 20% taxes.
The Bayford's win is not the biggest in Britain, however. Due to a fall in the value of the Euro that distinction still belongs to won by Colin and Chris Weir who won £161 million in 2011. The couple famously donated vast sums of money to fund the Yes campaign for the Scottish Independence Referendum, which took place back in September 2014.
You can now buy EuroMillions tickets either online or offline. Offline purchases can be made from any licensed dealer. Online purchases can be made either via your national lottery's website or, for more flexibility of play, you can bet on the results through licenced online lottery providers such as Lottoland.
Following the format change a EuroMillions ticket costs £2.50 in the UK after the 23rd of September, 2016. However, with online lottery betting provider Lottoland, you can bet on the EuroMillions results for just £2.00, enjoying all the benefits of the new jackpot, without paying the 25% increase.
When there is no winner for a particular tier of prizes then the money is said to "roll over" to the next draw. This just means that it will accumulate to the next draw, a system that allows EuroMillions jackpots to grow very quickly.
Statistically rollovers are common for the top EuroMillions jackpot, which often takes several weeks to find a winner. Occasionally rollovers happen for the second or third place prizes, but it becomes mathematically improbable that no one will have the matching numbers for most of the lower tiers.
While technically there is no limit to the amount of rollovers which can occur, the EuroMillions jackpot is capped at €190 million, or at current exchange rates just over £142.2 million. Any further rollovers become "rolldowns" where any amount that exceeds that €190 million figure is then added to the second tier prize.
In February 2012 the rules of EuroMillions were changed so that now only 2 draws maximum can be made at the top jackpot level, after which time the entire jackpot will continue to roll down until a winner is found.
Yes. As you've no doubt seen before many big-jackpot EuroMillions lottery winners fast become instant celebrities. So if you are concerned about your privacy, or are just modest by nature, you need not worry.
You have 180 days to make a claim for an offline ticket. After this time your ticket will be void and the money will be donated to charities and other good causes. Any prize money which you win online will be directly deposited into your account so you don't need to worry about the 180 day deadline.
If you lose your ticket then whoever finds it (the bearer) may still be able to claim the prize even if you are the purchaser. (As at least one recent high-profile court case has shown.)
You can help protect yourself by signing the back of your EuroMillions ticket and keep your sales receipt as proof of ownership for offline tickets. Better still you can avoid this unpleasant situation completely by opting to bet on EuroMillions online.
The EuroMillions SuperDraw takes place on special dates or to celebrate specific milestones for EuroMillions. Although there are several SuperDraws each year the number and the dates upon which they occur varies.
The Super Draw bypasses the results of the previous weeks and sets the top jackpot at €100 million (current rate approx. £87 million) or more, no matter what the current jackpot may be. If no Super Draw winner is found the €100 million jackpot rolls over to the next draw.
These types of draws guarantee plenty of hype and media coverage about who will be Europe's lucky 100x millionaire. The last Super Draw took place on October 3rd, 2014. Find out when the next one will be held on our EuroMillions Super Draws page.
There is no scientifically verified way to accurately predict lottery numbers as draws are completely random. Every number has the exact same chance of being drawn. However there are a few things you can do to help improve your chances of winning prizes and also reduce your chances of dividing it between other winning players.
A well-known strategy is to never select numbers lower than 31 as most players bet on lucky days of the month – meaning that your chances of sharing your prize will be statistically much higher if you also include numbers from 32 upwards!
For a mathematically sound way of improving your chances of winning a prize try playing with an automated Quick Pick. This option is widely available widely online. The advantage of this method is that it employs a random number generator to create strictly random numbers.
These numbers are far less likely to be picked by other players. Therefore Quick Picks offer a greater probability that the chosen numbers will be unique compared with playing your "lucky numbers" which, scientifically-speaking, are likely to be used by far more players than you might realise.
