French Lotto started in 1976 with 3 draws a week. The minimum French Lotto jackpot is €2 million, with each rollover adding €1 million to the prize fund. There can be 34 rollovers before the lottery becomes a 'must-win'. If there is no jackpot winner, the prize rolls down and is split between winners of the next winning prize tier.
