Euro Millions Prize Breakdown and Fund Allocation

EuroMillions Prize Fund Allocation

You can play the Euromillions online here: play euro millions and you can look up the latest results over here: euromillions results

Euromillions Jackpot prizes are paid out in the currency of the country in which you bought your ticket, Euros in most countries, Sterling in the United Kingdom and Francs in Switzerland.

The euro millions ticket breakdown is as follows:
1. €2 face value of the ticket
2. 50% goes to lottery operator
3. 50% is paid to a prize fund
4. UK - Of Camelots 50%
4.1 12% goes to the government
4.2 28% to UK good causes
4.3 5% goes to retailers

The UK uses Sterling which makes things slightly different, up until November the 7th 2009 the prize breakdown was as follows:

Ticket cost: £1.50
1. €1 goes to the prize fund like everyone else
2. 75p goes to the operator

Due to the Eur/GBP exchange rate, the price per line has gone up to £2 and every entry is automatically entered into the Millionaire raffle.
1. 

If there is an outstanding amount due to exchange fluctuations this goes to the prize fund as you have paid more for the ticket than anyone else and this is added to the lowe tier prizes and this is why UK lower prizes amount to slightly more than the euro variation.

On Friday all countries prize funds are added up for one grand total that is used to pay out all the prizes based on the percentage split shown in the table.

1. 22% of the prize fund is paid into the Jackpot fund
2. 16% goes to a Booster Fund
3. 62% of the prize fund to be allocated across all the other prize levels


If a Jackpot is not won, the value in the Jackpot 'pot', into which every country
has paid 22% of their prize fund, remains in that pot and is added to the following
week (called a Rollover), and so on until it is won or the jackpot rollover limit is reached. But the lower Tier prizes are allocated each week, and the value of the fund starts at zero for the following week. More tickets are sold when there is a Rollover Jackpot so the overall value of the prize fund will be greater and so Tier value prizes will be higher as well.

The Booster Fund is available to boost the Jackpot if needed, say at the start of a new draw period. The amount moved from this fund to the Jackpot is agreed in advance by the participating lottery operators.

Prize fund allocation up until May 10th 2011:

Prize Level Matches % Prize Fund
Jackpot Match 5 + 2 22%
Tier 2 Match 5 + 1 7.4%
Tier 3 Match 5 2.1%
Tier 4 Match 4 + 2 1.5%
Tier 5 match 4 + 1 1%
Tier 6 match 4 + 0 0.7%
Tier 7 Match 3 + 2 1 %
Tier 8 Match 3 + 1 5.1%
Tier 9 match 2 + 2 4.4%
Tier 10 Match 3 4.7%
Tier 11 Match 1 + 2 10.1%
Tier 12 match 2 24
Booster fund 16%

Lotto News

play euro millions

Welcome to the first edition of lottery news.

Today I want to encourage our users to embrace the use of our blogging service as a way to keep in touch with whats going on in the lottery world. I personally hate spam and unsolicited mail and so we are hoping that our users will unsubscribe from our mailing lists and subscribe to our blog as a way to keep in touch. Of course we will not stop our mailing lists as I am sure there are some die hard people out there not willing to try out new technology.

I have done a little research into using RSS feeds and find that its a better and simpler way to communicate. It also gives me the opportunity to freely write in the knowledge that those who actually want to hear from us are in fact reading our news as apposed to pushing unwanted mail.

To get started you are going to need an RSS agregator, a bit of software that can read RSS. If you have a MyYahoo or My MSN account you can do this online, just click on the chicklets in the right menu. I personally use a free programme that sits on my desktop called: KlipFolio (www.klipfolio.com). Download it - do the tutorial and start grabbing RSS feeds.

So this weeks lottery announcements go as follows:

1. Euro millions: Users wanting to take part in the Euro Lotto should try and get their tickets early for a change... every Friday there is a sudden rush and flood and panic as customers realise that they only have 5 minutes to make their orders and of course it can only lead to disappointment. I would like to encourage our users to at least give themselves a few days to get ahead of the pack.

2. Blog Servcie: This page is the new Lotto News blog service. You can use an RSS aggregator to grab our latest news and keep up to speed with whats going on in our world as well as post comments, suggestions and feedback at your leisure. (you are more than welcome to correct my spelling mistakes as well!!).

In addition the various sites will include our feeds and all you have to do is click the RSS short at the top of your browser to grab the feed and be plugged in.

Here are your first two RSS feeds to grab:

1. http://lotto-news.blogspot.com/atom.xml (this lotto news blog)

Cut and paste the URLS into your RSS Aggregator.

Thats the news for this week enjoy playing the lottery!
