Every Tuesday and Friday, seven numbers – five regular ones and two Lucky Stars – are drawn in the EuroMillions lottery – Europe’s pride and glory when it comes to lotteries. This popular European lottery offers a real prize festival in every draw, with no less than twelve secondary prize categories besides the obvious, and glorious, jackpot prize! Besides the top prize, there are many other wins you can scoop for matching different – but not all – combinations of the winning numbers!
All about the EuroMillions Jackpot
You probably already know that in order to hit the EuroMillions jackpot, you have to match all 7 winning numbers – 5 main ones and the 2 Lucky Stars – on the same line of your EuroMillions ticket for the respective draw. This will bring you a prize that starts at €17 million and can grow up to €190 million.
There is no rule saying how much the EuroMillions jackpot grows from one draw to another, in case nobody matches all the winning numbers. However, the European top lottery jackpot can get a boost to €100 million or even €130 million in case of a SuperDraw, irrespective of the jackpot value in the previous draw. If not won, the SuperDraws can create awesome jackpots, reaching even the record amount.
However, the European top lottery offers awesome secondary prizes that you might have won with your lucky numbers. Here is a summary of the prize divisions offered by EuroMillions at each and every draw:
