How to Play EuroMillions
EuroMillions draws take place on Tuesday and Friday evenings, and players must select five main numbers between 1 and 50 and two additional numbers, known as Lucky Stars, between 1 and 12.

These two ball pools are separate, so players can choose Lucky Star numbers that also appear in the five main numbers which they select. For players who want to leave their entry entirely to chance, the Lucky Dip facility generates a completely random set of numbers. Players then just need to decide which draw(s) they wish to enter - Tuesday, Friday or both.
Online ticket holders are contacted shortly after the draw takes place if they have won a prize, whereas participants who purchased their entries from authorised retailers must keep their tickets safe and check later to see if they have won.
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 authorised retailer sign the back of their entry as proof of ownership.
How to Win EuroMillions
A player who matches all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars wins the EuroMillions jackpot. If more than one player matches the winning combination, then the top prize is shared equally between all jackpot-winning tickets.
In addition to the jackpot, there are a further 12 prize tiers, with prizes paid out from matching just two main numbers upwards. In the event that no players are able to match all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars drawn, the jackpot keeps rolling over to the next draw until it is won or it reaches the jackpot cap of €190 million.
Once the cap is reached, the jackpot stays at this level for a maximum of four draws and, if it still hasn't been won after the fourth draw, the funds roll down and are shared among the players in the next winning tier.
