Millions of players play in the EuroMillions each week hoping to bag that life-changing jackpot. The odds of winning the EuroMillions jackpot are 1-in-139,000,000
Do those odds seem a little high? Well you’ve got much better odds of winning one of the other prize tiers. The odds of winning the lowest prize tier in the EuroMillions is 1-in-34. The mid-tier EuroMillions prizes have around 1-in-3,000,000 odds of winning. These mid-tier prizes are valued at anywhere between €70,000 and €400,000.
The odds of winning the EuroMillions may be higher than other European lottery games, but the prizes are much bigger than those lotteries.
In what started in 2004 as a joint venture between lotteries from Spain, the UK and France. The EuroMillions has since awarded hundreds of multi-million prizes to players around the world. In fact, you won’t find bigger jackpots from any other European lottery game.
The EuroMillions starting jackpot is currently at €17 million, but stands to get even bigger in the future. The largest ever EuroMillions jackpot is €190 million won by a single player in 2017. The current EuroMillions jackpot cap is €190 million, after which it will stay at this amount for another four draws until it is won.
The EuroMillions may not have the good winning odds of other European lottos like the Irish Lotto, but it does have much bigger prizes than these lotteries. Winning some of the lowest tier prizes have odds more in line with other big European lottos.
The EuroMillions lotto has a main number range of 1-50, players must choose five numbers from this pool for every EuroMillions play. There is also a bonus number range from 1-12. Players must choose two bonus numbers from this number range.
The EuroMillions Superdraw is a periodically scheduled draw which guarantees nine figure jackpot prizes. It works exactly like a normal EuroMillions draw with one notable exception: the jackpots are MUCH bigger. Same ticket prices, same winning odds, much bigger jackpots!
The EuroMillions Superdraw starting jackpots are around €120 million. They will then rollover to the jackpot cap of €190 million until won.
There are no set dates for EuroMillions Superdraws, but there are usually two or three Superdraws each year. EuroMillions Superdraws are announced a few days before Superdraw tickets go on sale.
EuroMillions Superdraw jackpots account for most of the biggest EuroMillions jackpots, with the last four Superdraws reaching the €190 million jackpot cap.
If you’re serious about winning the EuroMillions you’re going to want to do everything to get the best odds possible. Below are some easy tips you can use to help you get better odds of winning a EuroMillions prize.
Stick with your lucky numbers. Don’t get discouraged if your lucky numbers haven’t won you anything. Statistics show that if lotto numbers haven’t come up in 6 draws or more are 50% more likely to be drawn in subsequent draws.
Do not use birthdays. A very common strategy is using birthdays when picking your lucky numbers. You shouldn’t use this strategy because birthdays are only from 1-31, and the EuroMillions number pool is from 1-50.
Play larger numbers. Because so many players use calendar dates as their lucky numbers, using numbers over 31 will mean that you split the prizes with less players. Remember to play as many numbers of 31 as possible.
Play big in single draws. You get better odds of winning when you play as many tickets in a single draw rather than spreading the tickets out over multiple draws.
Join a lottery syndicate. Lottery syndicates allow you to pool resources with other players to buy more tickets. This is a guaranteed way to get more playing power without having to pay for additional tickets yourself.
Spread your lucky numbers. Statistically speaking; jackpot winning draws tend to have a spread of high and low lucky numbers. So when picking your EuroMillions numbers make sure you have a spread of high and low numbers, odd and even numbers, ect.
The EuroMillions starting jackpot is at €17 million, the biggest starting jackpot of any lotto in Europe. The second or third tier EuroMillions prize also regularly reaches the multi-million euro mark. The record EuroMillions jackpot is €190 million which was won in 2017.
To win the EuroMillions jackpot you must match all five of the main numbers, and the two bonus numbers. You can win the EuroMillions jackpot with less numbers if the jackpot cap has been reached for five draws. This is called a ‘rolldown’ and means that if no one matches all the lucky numbers, the jackpot will go to the players who have matched the most numbers.
The EuroMillions prize that you take home will depend on how many lucky numbers you match. Below are the odds of winning the EuroMillions prizes and how many numbers you must match to win them.
Below are the biggest EuroMillions prizes tiers and their winning odds
|5 Numbers + 2 Bonus Numbers||1 in 140,000,000|
|5 Numbers + 1 Bonus Number||1 in 7,000,000|
|5 Numbers||1 in 3,100,000|
|4 Numbers + 2 Bonus Numbers||1 in 621,000|
|4 Numbers + 1 Bonus Numbers||1 in 31,000|
The current EuroMillions jackpot cap is €190 million, the biggest jackpot cap of any European lottery game. Once it reaches this cap it will stay at €190 for another five draws, and on the fifth draw the jackpot must be won.
If nobody matches all the lucky numbers in this fifth draw the jackpot will ‘roll down’ and the player who matches the most lucky numbers will claim the jackpot.
If you’re talking about the biggest jackpots won across Europe then only one lottery need be mentioned: the EuroMillions. In fact, of the five biggest jackpots from any European lottery, the EuroMillions accounts for four of those.
