4 Things You Didn’t Know About EuroMillions (But Should!)

EuroMillions is one of the most played lottery in Europe – and for good reason.

It hands out an estimated €3.3 billion in prize money each year and is one of the largest transnational lottery around – with over 9 participating countries.

Here are 5 things you might not know about Europe’s favourite lottery:

 

1. EuroMillions jackpots have become bigger

Just last year, EuroMillions underwent changes to its game structure. As a result, one of the changes means it offers bigger jackpots than ever before! Starting jackpots have increased to an incredible €17 MILLION now!

 

2.EuroMillions has special Superdraw events every year

EuroMillions Superdraws are one of the most anticipated lottery events in Europe! These take place 2-3 times a year, and offer MASSIVE pre-determined jackpots. The last Superdraw was in September 2016, with a special jackpot of €130 million. It rolled over to €168 MILLION before it was won by a single ticket holder in Belgium!

 

3.There are 13 ways to win

Europe’s favourite lottery offers 13 ways to win any prize, making this one of the few lottos with such a high number of prize categories! While everyone hopes to hit the jackpot, keep in mind that even some of the additional prizes offer a substantial win. Secondary prizes range from €4.08 all the way to €456,705.97

 

4.The biggest jackpot ever was worth €190 million

EuroMillions has a jackpot cap, which means that the jackpot can never grow bigger than €190 million. It reached this size only twice since the game began in 2004. Once, on Friday, 10th August 2012 by Adrian and Gillian Bayford from the UK and a second time, on Friday, 24th October 2014 by a Portuguese ticket holder.
