EuroMillions was launched in February 2004 as part of a joint venture between the French, Spanish and British national lotteries and the game soon expanded to include Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland.
In March 2009, a jackpot cap of €185 million was imposed and this was reached for the first time in July 2011. Under the rules applicable at the time, the next time the jackpot cap was reached it would increase by €5 million to €190 million. However, in February 2012, the rule governing the jackpot cap changed again and specified that the jackpot cap would be a maximum of €190 million and could only remain at this level for two draws. The rules also stipulated that, if there was still no winner after the second draw, the jackpot funds would roll down and be shared among winners in the next tier.
Further changes to the game were made in May 2011 when a second weekly draw was introduced, a new prize tier was added and the Lucky Stars ball pool increased from 9 to 11.
