EuroMillions is a European random game, which was created in cooperation of three companies representing three countries: France, Spain and Great Britain. Therefore, at the beginning only inhabitants of those three countries could participate in the lottery. The first draw took place in 2004. During the following years other countries joined the lottery, inter alia: Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxemburg, Portugal and Switzerland.
France is a homeland of EuroMillions. It is there that on each Tuesday and Friday at 20:45 of local time drawing of the winning numbers take place. Outlets are in all countries that participate in the drawing and sometimes the rules of the game differ a little between the individual countries. However, the main part of the game always stays the same for all players. Inhabitants of different countries can take part in EuroMillions buying a ticket online via LottoMat website.
The prizes and rules of EuroMillions lottery
Rules of the game are very simple. A player has to choose 5 main numbers from the scope from 1 to 50 and two special numbers from the scope 1 to 12. The main prize is won by the player who indicates all 7 numbers correctly; however there are as many as 13 winning levels! Among winners of money prizes there are both those who indicate only 2 special numbers correctly as well as those who indicate 3 basic numbers. You can choose your numbers by yourself or via the hit-or-miss method.
If the main prize is not awarded, a rollover takes place, which in this game happens to be really high. However, the value of it has been limited. The upper limit at this particular moment is 185 000 000 euro, and if this amount is exceeded then its remaining part is added to the lower level, so the player 5:1 or 5:0 benefits from that.
The initial basic prize is 17 000 000 euro. So far the two highest prizes in EuroMillions lottery amounted to 190 000 000 euro and it happened in 2014 and 2017. It is worth to mention that in the case of such big rollovers one may benefit a lot even when not being the winner of the first degree.
