EuroMillions; Odds; When you enter EuroMillions, you have a 1 in 13 chance of winning any prize. Use the table below to view a breakdown of the odds of winning each prize tier, from Match 2 all the way up to Match 5 + 2 to win the jackpot. Feb 06, 2021 If you were thinking that it would be impossible to match all 5 numbers, plus 2 Lucky Stars, you'd be surprised to know that you actually have much better odds of winning a EuroMillions jackpot than, say, a Powerball one. Compared to the latter's 1 in 292,201,338.00 odds, EuroMillions' odds look much, much better.

EuroMillions Payouts

There are 13 different EuroMillions prizes on offer in every draw. However, the amount you win in each tier is not a fixed amount. Instead, a percentage of the total prize fund is allocated to each category and that is split between winners. This is known as a pari-mutuel method and leads to variation in the prize amounts, because the number of tickets sold and the number of winners is always different.

The following table shows all the different ways to win prizes, along with the odds of winning. You can see how much of the prize fund is allocated to each tier and the average payout you can expect if you match those numbers.

The jackpot starts at €17 million and if there are no winners the full amount rolls over to the following draw. It can keep rolling over all the way to its maximum of €210 million; visit the Jackpot Cap page to find out what happens when the jackpot reaches this amount.

Apart from the jackpot, the funds allocated to a prize tier are added to the category below if there are no winners in any of the participating countries.

Due to the pari-mutuel nature of calculating prizes, it is possible that the EuroMillions payout for one of the lower tiers might actually be larger in value than the payout for a higher prize tier. All prizes are rounded down to the nearest 10p.

How EuroMillions Prizes Are Funded

The base currency of EuroMillions is the Euro, but calculating prizes in sterling isn’t always as simple as converting amounts directly from Euros to pounds. The following steps demonstrate how EuroMillions prizes are funded and why there is sometimes a difference in the prizes paid out to UK players and those from other countries. You can find a more detailed explanation of the process following this guide.

  • Every participating EuroMillions country pays €1.10 from every ticket sold into the Common Prize Fund.
  • The National Lottery’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund is £0.87 from every ticket, which is converted to Euros on the date of the relevant draw.
  • After the draw, the money in the Common Prize Fund is used to pay out winners in all countries and is split according to the percentages in the prize table.
  • But wait! According to current exchange rates £0.87 is worth less than €1.10, so the UK has paid less into the Common Prize Fund than other countries have.
  • To balance this, the shortfall is deducted from the funds available to pay UK players. The funds left available to pay prizes are still split according to the percentages in the prize table.
  • The jackpot is exempt from these rules, so players in all participating countries win the same amount in Euros.

If in the future it comes to be that Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund amounts to more than the contribution from other countries, UK players will receive bigger payouts than players in those other countries.

When converting the funds back to sterling, the same exchange rate is used as was used when the National Lottery contributed funds to the Common Prize Fund.

Camelot Prize Fund

EuroMillions prizes are funded by the revenue from ticket sales. The price of a £2.50 ticket is split into £1.74 for entry into EuroMillions and £0.76 for entry to the UK Millionaire Maker raffle. As the two games cannot be entered separately to each other, the price of a ticket is always advertised as £2.50.

Fifty percent of the £1.74 that goes on EuroMillions is used to fund prizes, creating what the National Lottery refers to as the ‘Camelot Prize Fund.’ The other 50 percent of the ticket revenue is used to fund good causes and to pay various operating costs and commissions.

This prize fund is used to pay out EuroMillions prizes and is split between each prize tier according to the percentages shown in the prize table on this page. The remaining 10 percent goes to the EuroMillions Reserve Fund, which is in place to ensure that the minimum top prize of €17 million can always be offered. It is also used to pay for other special promotional events such as Superdraws.

Some of the percentages change after the first five draws in a rollover series. At that point the amount allocated to the jackpot goes from 50 percent to 42 percent and the contribution to the Reserve Fund increases from 10 percent to 18 percent. A rollover series starts from the first draw after the EuroMillions jackpot has been won.

The Camelot Prize Fund and the Common Prize Fund are two different things. The former is the amount of money that has accumulated from UK ticket sales to pay out prizes, while the latter is the money that has accumulated from ticket sales in all countries, including the UK. The Camelot Prize Fund is paid into the Common Prize Fund.

Common Prize Fund

Every country that participates in EuroMillions contributes €1.10 from every ticket sold into what’s known as the ‘Common Prize Fund.’ The National Lottery’s contribution to this shared fund is the money that has accrued in the Camelot Prize Fund.

The money that has been paid into the Common Prize Fund is then used to pay out all prizes in all participating countries. The amount of money required to pay out prizes is paid back to the EuroMillions provider in each country. For UK prizes, the money is converted back to sterling using the same exchange rate that was used when the National Lottery paid into the Common Prize Fund.

Why UK prizes are different to the payouts in other countries

The difference in the value of sterling and Euros has an effect on how much prize money is paid out to UK players. At present the National Lottery’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund is £0.87 (50 percent of £1.84) from every ticket sold, which when exchanged to Euros is less than the €1.10 that other countries pay into the fund.

This difference is accounted for when the prize money is paid back to the National Lottery from the Common Prize Fund. The value of the shortfall is deducted from the amount of money the UK has to pay out prizes. The result is that UK winners receive proportionately less than winners from other countries.

For example, if the UK sells five million tickets for a particular draw, the National Lottery’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund would work out at £4.35 million. If the exchange rate on the day of the draw determines that £1 equals €1.10, this contribution would be worth around €4.8 million.

France pays €1.10 into the Common Prize Fund, so if five million tickets are also sold there for the same draw, the country would contribute €5.5 million into the Common Prize Fund, around €700,000 more than the UK paid in.

To balance this out and ensure players in all countries are paid fairly, the amount of money available to pay UK players would be reduced by €700,000 – the same amount as the shortfall in the contribution from the National Lottery.*

This goes both ways, so if the exchange rate between pounds and Euros ever changes to the point where the UK’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund amounts to more than that of other countries, UK players would receive bigger payouts than players in those countries.

EuroMillions jackpots start at a minimum of €17 million and have a cap of €210 million. The jackpot reached its previous cap of €190 million on four occasions - in August 2012, Adrian and Gillian Bayford of Suffolk, UK, became the first players to win the game's maximum prize, before a Portuguese player from Castelo Branco matched the achievement in October 2014. In October 2017, a Spanish player from Gran Canaria became the third player to win €190 million. In October 2019 the EuroMillions jackpot completed a run of 22 consecutive rollovers, including five draws at the jackpot cap. The €190 million jackpot was finally won by a single ticket holder from the UK, making it the fourth time that the maximum amount had been won.

The record amount of €200 million was won by a single ticket from France on Friday 11th December. Because the cap was reached and won, it now increases to the current mark of €210 million. This €10 million increase will happen following each time the cap is reached, up to a maximum of €250 million.

The participating EuroMillions countries are Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. Draws are held in Paris on Tuesday and Friday evenings.

This EuroMillions data includes all draws up to and including Friday 5th February 2021. The last EuroMillions draw number was 1396. You can use the EuroMillions checker to automatically see if your numbers have won a prize.

EuroMillions History

The first EuroMillions draw took place on Friday 13th February 2004 in Paris. Initially, only France, Spain and the UK participated in EuroMillions; in October 2004, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland joined the game.

In January 2006 a rollover cap was introduced, which meant that the top prize could roll over for a maximum of eleven consecutive draws. If the jackpot was still not won in the twelfth draw, it would then roll down to be shared between players in the next winning prize tier.

In November 2009 the rule was changed and the EuroMillions jackpot cap was introduced. The cap was originally set at €185 million and was first reached in July 2011. At the time, the rules stated that once reached, the cap would increase by €5 million.

In May 2011 the Tuesday draw was introduced, along with a prize for matching just two main numbers. In addition, the Lucky Stars ball pool increased from 9 to 11.

The EuroMillions jackpot cap rule changed again in February 2012, which meant that the cap would no longer increase by €5 million every time it was reached but instead would remain at the set €190 million.

In September 2016, the game’s matrix changed, with the ball pool for the Lucky Stars expanding from 11 to 12. Starting jackpots were increased to €17 million, and a new European Millionaire Maker game was introduced. The cost of a ticket rose to accommodate the changes.

More changes were made in February 2020, with the jackpot cap pushed up to €200 million. The new rules that were introduced state that when the cap is reached, it can remain at that fixed amount for a maximum of five consecutive draws; if there is still no jackpot winner in that fifth draw, the top prize will roll down to be shared between players in the next winning prize tier. The cap will also increase by €10 million after each time it is won in future, up to a maximum of €250 million.

The jackpot cap of €200 million was won in December 2020, meaning that the first €10 million increase took place and now sits at the current cap of €210 million. Once this amount is hit and won, it will increase to €220 million.

Associated EuroMillions Games

There are a number of supplementary EuroMillions draws held in the majority of the participating nations, solely for the players in that country. These include the Ireland Only Raffle, Spanish El Millón, Portuguese M1lhão, Swiss Super-Star, Swiss Second Chance, Belgian My Bonus, Luxembourg Joker and Luxembourg Extra Lux.

Millionaire Maker

Launched as Millionaire Raffle by Camelot - the UK’s National Lottery operator - in 2009, Millionaire Maker offers one prize of £1 million in every EuroMillions draw and is exclusively offered to UK players.

October 2014 saw the game change its name to Millionaire Maker to signify the introduction of non-cash prizes to supplement the £1 million prize in special draws held on the last Friday of the month as part of the Mega Friday promotion. In September 2016, Mega Week was introduced, offering extra prizes of £1 million as well as luxurious non-cash prizes in the last full week of every month.

Millionaire Maker codes consist of four letters and five numbers (e.g. ABCD12345), with one code issued for every UK EuroMillions ticket purchased. To win, players must match the exact code on their ticket with the one drawn. There were previously two Millionaire Maker winners of £1 million in each draw before changes were made in January 2019. These updates, brought in my Camelot, also saw the announcement of more special events with the crowning of more millionaires over the course of a year.

Ireland Only Raffle

The Ireland Only Raffle generates ten winners of €5,000 in every draw. Introduced in September 2016 as part of the recent changes to EuroMillions, entry into the game is included in the EuroMillions ticket price, with one unique code generated for every line played.

Draws take place twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Spanish El Millón

Available to those EuroMillions players based in Spain, €1 million can be won in Friday draws.

All players who enter the EuroMillions draw are eligible to play El Millón, regardless of whether they’ve entered for the Tuesday or Friday draw. To win, you need to match the code generated on your ticket with the one drawn.

Portuguese M1lhão

EuroMillions players in Portugal play M1lhão on Friday evenings, when a prize of €1 million is on offer.

Any players who buy EuroMillions tickets are automatically entered into the weekly draw. However, you cannot play M1lhão without first buying a EuroMillions ticket.

Swiss Super-Star

Super-Star players have the chance to win the jackpot of CHF250,000 by matching a five-digit code, which contains three numbers and two letters.

The winning combination is drawn at the same time as EuroMillions and is played on the same entry slip as the main game, but players can take part in Super-Star separately if they wish. There are nine prizes on offer in every draw, with the value dependent on the number of digits matched.

The first Swiss Super-Star draw took place in November 2010, and each line costs CHF2.

The prize breakdown is shown in the below table:

MatchPrize
All five digits in the right order CHF250,000 (fixed amount per winner)
The first two and the last two digitsCHF5,000
The first three digits and the last digitCHF2,000
The first digit and the last three digitsCHF2,000
The first four or the last four digits CHF1,000
The first two digits and the last digitCHF275
The first digit and the last two digitsCHF275
The first three or last three digits CHF50 (maximum amount possible)
The first and last digitsCHF20
The first two or the last two digitsCHF10
The first or last digitCHF4

Swiss Second Chance

Second Chance is a supplementary game, offering Swiss-based EuroMillions players the opportunity to win additional prizes.

The five main numbers on players’ EuroMillions tickets are entered into the additional draw, and prizes are given for matching three, four or five balls.

The estimated jackpot of CHF150,000 is achieved by matching all five numbers, with four numbers winning approximately CHF700 and a prize of CHF25 for matching three balls.

If no player matches all five numbers, the prize fund is allocated to those who have matched three or four numbers.

Belgian My Bonus

Exclusive to those who play EuroMillions in Belgium, My Bonus players can win prizes ranging from €10 up to €500.

My Bonus codes begin with the letter ‘B’ and contain four letters and five numbers. They are automatically assigned to a player when a EuroMillions ticket is bought.

There are 600 winners of €500 on a weekly basis – with 200 claimed in Tuesday draws and 400 on a Friday. Additional draws are held occasionally, offering multiple €10 prizes.

The code is also used as a player’s entry into European Millionaire Maker, which generates prizes of €1 million.

Luxembourg Joker

Luxembourg Joker takes place alongside the main EuroMillions draw, and ticket holders in the country can win prizes worth up to €500,000 in every draw. Players pay an additional €2 to add a line of Joker to their EuroMillions entry.

Six numbers between 0 and 9 are generated on each line, and the €500,000 jackpot is won by matching all six numbers drawn in the same order.

The prize breakdown is:

MatchPrize
All six numbers in order €500,000
Last five numbers in order €10,000
Last four numbers in order €1,000
Last three numbers in order €100
Last two numbers in order €10
Last number €2

There is a 1 in 1 million chance of winning the jackpot, and an overall 1 in 10 chance of winning a prize.

Euromillions 2 Chance 3

Luxembourg Extra Lux

Players who enter EuroMillions in Luxembourg are automatically entered into the Extra Lux, a separate draw that offers their main numbers from the pan-European game another chance to win.

Euromillions Uk

Matching all five numbers secures a prize of €100,000, with a €500 prize for matching four numbers and €10 for matching three balls.

Extra Lux was introduced in September 2016 as part of a number of changes made to EuroMillions.

European Millionaire Maker

European Millionaire Maker was introduced as part of changes to EuroMillions made in September 2012. The game works in a similar way to UK Millionaire Maker, but players from all nine participating countries can take part. Players will receive a four-letter, five-digit code for every EuroMillions line they play. The first letter of the code will identify the country in which the ticket was sold. Draws are held from time to time throughout the year.

The first European Millionaire Maker draw was held on Friday 28th October and offered 25 prizes of £1 million/€1 million/CHF1 million.

EuroMillions HotPicks

EuroMillions HotPicks was launched in the UK in January 2018 as a new game that could be played separately from the main draw at a cost of £1.50. Players can decide whether to pick one, two, three, four or five numbers, but must match all the numbers they select to win the associated prize. The numbers used for EuroMillions HotPicks are the five main numbers drawn in the main game, with the Lucky Stars discounted. Prizes range from £10 for Pick 1 to £1 million for Pick 5.

The prize breakdown, and how to win, can be seen in the following table:

GameHow to WinPrize
Pick 5Select five numbers and match them all£1 million
Pick 4Select four numbers and match them all£30,000
Pick 3Select three numbers and match them all£1,500
Pick 2Select two numbers and match them both£100
Pick 1Select one number and match it£10

EuroMillions Plus

Irish EuroMillions players have been taking part in EuroMillions Plus since June 2007. For a small additional fee, ticket holders have a chance of winning prizes ranging from €20 to €500,000 in a supplementary draw. To win the top prize, the five main numbers on a player’s ticket from the main EuroMillions draw must match the five drawn from a separate EuroMillions Plus machine, with rewards starting for matching just three of the five numbers drawn.

Euromillions Gewinnzahlen 2 Chance

My Million

February 2014 saw the French version of EuroMillions increase the price of tickets to include automatic entry into the new My Million game, which guarantees to create at least one winner of €1 million per draw. To accommodate the new game, the cost of a French EuroMillions ticket rose from €2 to €2.50.

My Million is very similar to its UK counterpart Millionaire Maker. For every line played, participants receive one code and win by matching it with the code drawn. There are no prizes awarded for a partial match.
