EuroMillions Lotto Draw
The Euromillions lotto draw launched in 2004 and now includes players from nine European countries. Lottery tickets for the Euromillions lotto draw are available across Spain, France, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Austria and Switzerland in the UK. Various countries hold their own prizes alongside the usual Euromillions lotto draw such as the Millionaire Raffle in the UK where UK players can play for an extra £1 million prize alongside the main draw.
The Euromillions lotto draw is a twice weekly lotto draw with draws taking place at 10pm in Paris every Tuesday and Friday evening. Two sets of numbered balls are used in the Euromillions lotto draw, one main ball pool with numbers running from 1 to 50 inclusive and a second pool of lucky star balls, numbered 1 to 11. Five balls are drawn at random from the first pool of balls and two lucky stars are drawn. These numbers randomly chosen by the lotto draw make up the winning Euro Millions results each week. To win the Euromillions lotto draw jackpot for that week, you must match all five main balls and the two lucky stars. In the event of more than one lotto player matching all the winning numbers, the jackpot is shared equally between all the winning lottery players.
The Euromillions lotto draw offers many tiers of prizes from the main jackpot down to a prize for matching just two main balls. Overall odds of winning a prize in the Euromillions lotto draw are 1 in 13, odds of winning the jackpot are very high, one in 116 million thanks to the double ball pool.
The long odds of walking away with the jackpot means that rollovers are common on the Euromillions lotto draw and jackpots have been known to top €100 million. Some of the world's record lottery jackpots have been from Euromillions jackpots and both the UK's and Ireland's biggest ever lottery winners have come from the Euromillions Lotto draw.
The big jackpots and high payout ratios also make the Euromillions lotto draw a firm favourite with world lottery syndicates, plus of course as the jackpots climb, so do lottery ticket sales, pushing the astronomical jackpots even higher. The Euromillions lotto draw was and still remains the world's only intercontinental lottery draw and a firm favourite with players from not only the participating countries but the rest of the world too.
