EuroMillions is a European Lottery draw that takes place twice a week, on Tuesday and Friday evenings.
The game is played across Europe in the following countries: Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
EuroMillions is known for creating headline-worthy jackpots, which can regularly reach over £100 million, and are regularly assisted by Superdraws. The jackpot is, however, capped at €250 million Euros, which will of course change in GBP value when it is reached depending on the exchange rate at the time.
Starting in 2004, EuroMillions has created many jackpot winners, with the largest ever set on Friday 8th December 2023, when one Austrian ticket holder won €240 million.
How to Play EuroMillions
EuroMillions is simple and easy to play, simply pick five numbers out of 50, and a further two numbers out of 11. The “Main Ball” pool consists of 50 numbers, of which five are drawn in Paris every Tuesday and Friday evening. The “Lucky Stars” pool is a separate drum of 11 numbers, where two numbers are drawn alongside the Main Numbers. To win the jackpot, players need to match all five main numbers drawn, including the two Lucky Stars. EuroMillions can be played online or at a retailer.
