How to Play
EuroMillions is a simple and exciting game that can be played online or via an authorised retailer. Follow the instructions below to begin:
- Select five main EuroMillions numbers from a pool of 1 to 50.
- Select an additional two numbers, known as Lucky Stars, from a separate pool of 1 to 12. These numbers can be the same as numbers selected from the main pool if you wish.
- If you want to leave your selection to chance, you can opt for a Lucky Dip; this allows the computer to randomly generate the numbers on a ticket.
- Select the number of draws you would like to enter. You can participate in single or multiple draws.
- Confirm and purchase your entry.
Online players receive an email confirming their entry, with their playslip being stored in their personal account, while those playing through authorised retailers must keep their physical tickets safe ahead of the draws.
How to Win a EuroMillions Prize
Matching all five main numbers and both Lucky Star guarantees that you win the EuroMillions jackpot. If more than one player matches the winning combination, then the top prize is shared equally between all jackpot-winning tickets.
The top prize, which starts at a minimum of €17 million (£15 million), continuously rolls over until it is won or the sum on offer hits the jackpot cap of €190 million.
In addition to the jackpot, there are a further 12 prize tiers and you can win prizes by matching just two main numbers upwards. For more information on the different rewards available, visit the EuroMillions Prizes page.
Checking Your Ticket
Players can check their EuroMillions tickets against the winning numbers by visiting the EuroMillions Results page, using the EuroMillions Checker or by presenting a retailer with a ticket for a draw that has been held. It is also advised that players who buy tickets from an retailer sign the back of their entry as proof of ownership. Online ticket holders are contacted via email if they have won a prize.
