How to play Euromillions

How to play Euromillions

Since the Euromillions jackpot is @ €140 Million, I thought I would direct visitors to a page where they can learn a little more about the game.

EuroMillions is a transnational lottery, launched on 7 February 2004 by:
  • France's Francaise des Jeux
  • Spain's Loterias y Apuestas del Estado
  • And the United Kingdom's Camelot
The first draw was held on Friday 13 February 2004 in Paris. Initially, only the UK, France, and Spain participated, with the Austrian, Belgian, Irish, Luxembourg, Portuguese and Swiss lotteries joining for the 8 October 2004 drawing.

Draws are held every Tuesday and Friday night at 21:45 CET in Paris. A standard EuroMillions ticket costs €2.00, £2.00 or CHF3.00 per line played, depending on the local currency. (An option, called Plus, currently available only in Ireland and Portugal, adds €1.00 per line.) The cost of playing in the UK increased from £1.50 to £2.00 per line on 7 November 2009, due to the combination of: the EUR/GBP exchange rate, and an automatic entry in its Millionaire Raffle.

All prizes, including the jackpot, are tax-free (except in Switzerland) and are paid as a lump sum.

Please note the prices quoted are for buying directly from a retailer, the tickets priced on this website include syndicate management fees, credit card processing fees etc. and the purpose is to provide a fully managed syndication service for expats as well as anyone who wishes to run an office/private lottery pool and have their tickets managed by an independent and autonomous third party.
