The EuroMillions jackpot starts at €17 million and can roll over to a maximum of €200 million. The prizes are not fixed amounts, instead in every draw each prize category receives a percentage of the overall prize fund. This means that the individual prizes can change from draw to draw.
The table below shows how much of the prize fund is allocated to each category, along with how many numbers you need to match to win and the odds of winning each prize.
|Match||Percentage of Prize Fund||Odds|
|5 + 2 Lucky Stars||50%, then 42% after 5 rollovers||1 in 139,838,160|

If there is more than one jackpot winner in the same draw the prize money will be split equally between them.
The EuroMillions jackpot is capped at €200 million and must be won in the next five draws when it has reached that level. If the jackpot is not won in the fifth draw then the prize for the jackpot will roll down and be shared among all those winning in the second tier of prizes. After this has happened, the jackpot cap will then be increased to €210 million, until it is reached again. This will continue to happen until the final amount of €250 million is reached when the jackpot cap will not increase any further.
Although the cap of €200 million has never been hit, the former cap of €190 million was won four times. In the build-up to these draws, the excess funds that would have gone to the jackpot had it not been at its cap were added to the second level of prizes, making the second-place prize worth millions of euros in its own right. For two weeks in a row this made the second-tier prize for EuroMillions bigger than some national lotteries held around the world.
If you need any more information about playing EuroMillions or how prizes work, take a look at the frequently asked questions below.
When do EuroMillions draws take place?
EuroMillions draws are held in Paris every Tuesday and Friday at around 09:00 PM CET. You can find the latest winning numbers on the EuroMillions Results page straight after the draw.
Does the jackpot roll over if no one wins it?
Yes, if no one matches five numbers and both Lucky Stars to win the jackpot, it will roll over and increase in value for the following draw. It will keep rolling over until someone wins it or it reaches the cap of €200 million where it must be won after five draws.
What is a EuroMillions Superdraw?
Superdraws are special draws in which the jackpot is increased to a big amount, usually at least €130 million. They are played in exactly the same way as standard draws and if no one wins the jackpot it rolls over. Two or three Superdraws are held per year but they do not take place on a set date – they are usually announced a few weeks in advance.
What is the biggest EuroMillions jackpot ever won?
The biggest ever jackpot is €190 million, which has been won four times, most recently in October 2019 when a ticket holder from the UK won the entire amount.
Do you win with 2 numbers on EuroMillions?
Yes- matching two numbers will win you a prize in EuroMillions as it’s the fewest numbers you can match and still win something. The prize is not fixed and will vary from draw to draw depending on the number of winners and the number of entries sold.
Is a lucky dip more likely to win?
Buying an entry with your own numbers has the same odds of winning as buying a lucky dip. The advantage a lucky dip has is it will choose the five numbers and two lucky stars from the entire ball pool, compared to people who choose their numbers sometimes favouring significant dates like birthdays or anniversaries, which limits the range of numbers chosen 31 (as there are maximum 31 days in a month). However it’s completely possible that all the winning numbers are in a range lower than 31 so any set of numbers could be a winner!
Which country buys the most EuroMillions tickets?
Not all countries provide data showing how many EuroMillions tickets they sold, but it is expected that French players buy the most EuroMillions tickets as they have had the most winners since February 2004. Portugal and Spain both release this information and sell roughly 2.5 and 4 million tickets respectively for a normal jackpot. When EuroMillions last reached its cap in October 2019, Portugal sold over 6million and Spain over 9 million.
