The Main Rules of the UK EuroMillions

Want to play UK EuroMillions and stand a chance at winning the awesome European prizes? It’s easy! Just choose 5 main numbers from 1 and 50 and 2 Lucky Stars from 1 to 12. If you match all of these, then you are the lucky winner of the big EuroMillions jackpot. But remember that there are many other secondary prizes that are well worth your attention. Read on to find out all about them!

When Do the EuroMillions Draws Take Place?

The EuroMillions draws take place on a bi-weekly basis, on Tuesdays and Fridays. The winning numbers are drawn each time at 21.00 CET in Paris. This means 8 PM the in Ottawa, Canada. But, you don’t have to worry about checking the results or watching the draw live on TV because you will find them on after each draw.

The UK EuroMillions Jackpot

If the numbers on your ticket match the winning numbers, you are the lucky jackpot winner. With UK EuroMillions, you have the chance to pocket life-changing amounts starting at €17 million that can grow with every draw until the jackpot cap of €190 million is reached.

After the EuroMillions jackpot reaches this amount, the prize funds from ticket sales go to the non-jackpot prize categories. According to the official rules of the game, there can be a maximum of 5 draws with the cap jackpot. If there is no first prize winner in the fifth draw, then the €190 million will be transferred to the following prize category that has winners.

The UK EuroMillions Secondary Prizes

There are 12 non-jackpot prize categories in the UK EuroMillions, which means that you have a lot of opportunities to win in this amazing lottery. Guess all the main numbers and one of the Lucky Stars to win the second prize. Even if your only guess two of the main numbers, you still win a symbolic prize in the UK EuroMillions, so give it a chance!

All about the UK Millionaire Maker Raffle

UK EuroMillions tickets come with a UK Millionaire Maker raffle code. This raffle takes place after the EuroMillions numbers are drawn and distributes two £1 million prizes, minting two brand new millionaires twice a week. To win the UK Millionaire Maker prize, you have to match the winning 9-digit code of the draw.

The UK National Lottery is not the only one offering a EuroMillions raffle: EuroMillions tickets bought in Spain  enter the El Millón raffle, which was founded in September 2016, while EuroMillions tickets purchased in France   automatically get a My Million raffle code.

The Mega Week Raffle

The UK EuroMillions also hosts a special raffle called Mega Week, which is held on special occasions, similar to the SuperDraw. The Mega Week raffle produces 5 to 10 millionaires. Each of them cashes £1 million , as well as a non-cash prize, which usually consists of a luxurious holiday. Winners have the option to receive the cash value for this prize, which is calculated and announced by the UK Lottery official operator before the draw.
