What is the EuroMillions game?
EuroMillions is one of the most popular and most recognizable lotteries in Europe. It has existed since 2004 and has enjoyed uninterrupted popularity among players. EuroMillions was created by three famous gambling companies which included: Française des Jeux which is a French lottery host, Spanish national lottery Loterías y Apuestas del Estado and British company Camelot.
Initially, the lottery offices only sold EuroMillions tickets online in France, Spain and Great Britain. Currently tickets for those lotto drawings can be purchased in few more European countries: Andora, Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Lichtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Great Britain and Isle of Man. If you’re currently not in any of those countries, don’t worry, you don’t have to get a ticket to London or Paris just for that. All you have to do is visit our website – the LottoMat website, where you can easily and without limitation play EuroMillions online. Faster, cheaper and more conveniently, not to mention it’s open 24 hours a day and all week.
EuroMillions drawings take place in Paris every Tuesday and Friday at 8:45 PM local time. Drawing results are published on the LottoMat website right after the results being announced so you don’t have to wait long for them. Those are the official results which we get from the host of the EuroMillions lottery.
What are the playing rules for this lottery?
EuroMillions is a lottery that has as many as 13 winning levels. The rules of this lotto are incredibly easy and consist of selecting 5 numbers out of a pool of 50 and 2 lucky stars out of a pool of 12 numbers. Winning the main prize requires guessing all 7 winning numbers. Every lower number of guesses means a lower winning level, but on each of them, a player still wins a monetary prize. The main prize in the lottery is funded out of half of the pool of available funds.
If nobody gets all seven lucky numbers in a particular drawing, then the main prize goes into a rollover. A lotto rollover keeps growing until somebody hits the jackpot, which allows it to reach truly high amounts, but not above 190 000 000 euro. If a rollover exceeds that limit, the surplus is used to increase the prizes at the lower levels. It means that a rollover of 190 million euro is split among the winners at lower levels. Which makes a rollover the best time to play the lottery.
In the EuroMillions lottery, we also have an extra option, the so-called “Plus”, unfortunately it is only available to players in Ireland and costs 1 euro.
What are Special and Occasional EuroMillions Drawings?
Both drawings mentioned are extra lottery drawings in which the guaranteed prize ranges from 100 to 130 million euro. The difference between those two drawings is that if nobody wins the main prize, then:
– in the Special Drawing, the main prize pool is moved to the subsequent drawings, which means it goes into a rollover.
– in the Occasional Drawing, the first level winning pool is spend on the prizes for the winners at lower levels of the game.

What is the risk at the EuroMillions lottery?
It is actually hard to evaluate the risk here, it can’t be considered small or big. It is 1:140 millions for the main prize. It can certainly be frightening at first, especially to new players. However, experienced lottery veterans know that high risk can be very profitable and that there’s no fun without it. The fact that the chances are 1:140 millions doesn’t discourage players from around the world. One could say that it’s quite the opposite actually – it’s inviting to players who expect big winnings. To them, high risk only adds to the atmosphere and makes playing more intense.
We have mentioned that EuroMillions has 13 winning levels. For the second level, chances are actually much more realistic, as they are 1:7 millions. The truth is that everyone has a chance to win in the lottery which is why it’s a good idea to try your hand at this game!
How much can be won in the lotto?
There is whole 17 million euro to win – that’s the lowest guaranteed main prize. However, the average winnings are much higher, reaching as much as 47 million euro. The main prize is always funded out of half of the pool of available funds.
If the tickets sold exceed those 190 million euro, then the surplus is spent on the lower level winnings, which is the subsequent 12 levels. The main prize is funded out of half of the pool of available funds.
Seeing all the game levels globally, 1 in 13 submitted tickets wins, which actually looks pretty inviting.
What is a rollover like?
As we mentioned before, EuroMillions has a defined upper rollover threshold. But it doesn’t make the money that can be won small. The permitted amount that the winnings can carry over up to is 190 million euro, which is quite a fortune that would let us make all of our dreams come true.
What was the all-time record winning?
The upper rollover threshold, which is 190 million euro, was reached twice – in 2012 and 2014.
