EuroMillions players in Ireland can give themselves an extra chance to win a life-changing sum of money by also playing their numbers in a EuroMillions Plus game. This game is exclusive to the Irish Lottery so you won't find it available in any other country, but you can play the game online. EuroMillions Plus has three prize tiers and the top prize is worth a very handy €500,000.
You need to play EuroMillions to have the option of playing EuroMillions Plus, and that's because the latter game is designed to give your EuroMillions selections an additional chance of winning. To take part, complete your EuroMillions play slip as usual (either offline or online) and mark the EuroMillions Plus option accordingly.
Opting to enter your numbers into the EuroMillions Plus game costs a little more than playing EuroMillions alone, but as anyone who has won the top prize would tell you, that little extra can be well worth the chance of winning the jackpot. And because EuroMillions Plus is separate from the main EuroMillions game, there is nothing preventing you from winning yourself a prize in both draws!
When the EuroMillions Plus draw is held, five numbers will be randomly selected. You need to match 3, 4 or 5 of those numbers using your five main EuroMillions numbers only (Lucky Star selections do not apply to this game) to win a prize. As we said earlier, there are three prize tiers in all, as illustrated below:
- Tier 1: Match 5 numbers to win €500,000
- Tier 2: Match 4 numbers to win €2,000
- Tier 3: Match 3 numbers to win €20
EuroMillions Plus prize winners claim their prizes in the same way as they would when playing the main EuroMillions game, and if you play online you will receive an email which brings any win to your attention. All prizes must be claimed within 90 days of the date of the winning draw, otherwise the prize will be made void and the money allocated to good causes instead.
Play Multiple Draws
The main EuroMillions game allows players to enter the same numbers for a consecutive series of draws in advance, and the same option is available for the EuroMillions Plus game. Simply select the number of draws that you want to play for and the total cost of your entries will be calculated automatically. This feature means that you can still be in with a chance of winning EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus prizes even if you go away on holiday.
As you can see, EuroMillions Plus gives EuroMillions players in Ireland a fantastic opportunity to win a completely separate prize using the same numbers. That gives EuroMillions Plus participants double the excitement and twice as much chance of winning big money!
