EuroMillions Help & FAQ

Overview

The EuroMillions is Europe’s biggest and most popular lottery draw. It takes place every Tuesday and Friday night in Paris and you can bet on the outcome of the draw with us for just €2. That’s €0.50 less than you will pay for a ticket elsewhere.

How does betting on the EuroMillions at Lottoland work?

Instead of entering the EuroMillions draw you are placing a bet on the outcome. You pick your numbers in the same way and you can win all the same main game prizes, including the jackpot, as you could had you entered the official draw.

How do I choose a line and place a bet?

Choose 5 numbers from the main pool of 1–50 and 2 further numbers from 1–12.

You can also select the QuickPick option (Quick+1) and this will choose a line for you randomly. Once you have chosen your numbers, select which draw you want to bet on, either Tuesday or Friday, and press Submit. This will take you through to a checkout – at this stage just click Confirm and proceed to place your bet.

How do I win the Jackpot?

You will win our jackpot if your 5 main numbers and 2 additional numbers are the same as those in the official EuroMillions draw.

Can I will all the same prizes betting on the draw with Lottoland?

You can win all the same main game prizes betting on the draw with us as those available in the official draw, including the jackpot.

How much does it cost?

A single line costs €2. A line with the DoubleJackpot feature costs €4. For more on DoubleJackpot please see below.

Why does it cost €0.50 less to bet on EuroMillions than it does to buy a ticket for the official draw?

It costs €0.50 less to bet on the EuroMillions at Lottoland.co.uk than it does to buy a ticket for the official EuroMillions draw, because our betting model gives us the freedom to set our own prices and offer our players added value.

How much can I win?

The EuroMillions jackpot is capped at €190 million. However, you can select our DoubleJackpot feature for the chance to win twice the official EuroMillions jackpot amount. See below for information on how this feature works.

How does the DoubleJackpot feature work?

The DoubleJackpot feature allows you to go for twice the official lottery jackpot. So, for instance, if the official EuroMillions draw is €80m and you bet on the outcome with us and activate the DoubleJackpot feature, your potential prize will be €160m. The prizes for all other tiers will remain the same.

It costs double the price of your normal line to activate the feature. So, if you wish to bet on EuroMillions with the DoubleJackpot feature you’ll pay €4, instead of €2.

When does the draw take place?

The EuroMillions draw takes place every Tuesday and Friday night in Paris at approximately 8pm Irish time.

What is the difference between the EuroMillions and EuroJackpot lotteries?

Many people don't know, but EuroMillions has some stiff competition. There's a second big trans-national lottery, called EuroJackpot, which operates in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia and Spain, altogether encompassing a total population of 130 million inhabitants. The EuroMillions countries have a considerably larger population, at approximately 217 million inhabitants.

From a gameplay perspective, the EuroMillions and EuroJackpot lotteries are similar; both lotteries require you to pick 5 numbers from 50, and 2 supplementary numbers. The supplementary numbers are where the difference becomes clear as you must pick 2 supplementary (Star) numbers from 8 for the EuroJackpot and for the EuroMillions you must pick 2 supplementary numbers from 11.

The prices for the two lotteries are also similar – €2 for the EuroMillions and €2 for EuroJackpot

The EuroJackpot organisers guarantee a weekly minimum jackpot of €10 million, with a maximum jackpot of €90 million. The EuroMillions is much larger in comparison, with a minimum of €15 million available at each of the two weekly draws (i.e. €30 million weekly), with a maximum jackpot size of a whopping €190 million!

The winning numbers for the EuroJackpot are drawn every Friday in Helsinki (Finland), while the EuroMillions has two weekly draws on Tuesdays and Fridays in Paris (France).

A great tip for EuroMillions fans - whenever there's a Friday draw coming up with a low jackpot check out our EuroJackpot page, as it may well have a bigger jackpot, and at great odds too!
