Every Tuesday and Friday, 7 numbers – 5 main ones and 2 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 12 secondary prize categories besides the main jackpot prize!
In addition to 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 a massive €190 million!
There is no rule saying how much the EuroMillions jackpot can increase, in case no winning ticket holder matches all the winning numbers. However, the European top lottery jackpot can get a boost to €100 million or even €130 million, in the case of a SuperDraw, regardless of the jackpot value in the previous draw. If there is no winner, the SuperDraws can create awesome jackpots, reaching even the record amount.

Another type of prize the EuroMillions offers in its participating countries are the €1 million raffle prizes. In Spain, EuroMillions draws are accompanied by the El Millón raffle, which guarantees one winner for each draw, giving away a €1 million prize each time. EuroMillions tickets purchased in France are automatically entered in the My Million raffle, which distributes a €1 million prize twice a week. The Millionaire Maker is another EuroMillions raffle, available on tickets purchased in the UK. As the name implies, it promises to make one of the EuroMillions draw participants the winner of £1 million prize!
What are the odds of winning the EuroMillions raffle prizes? As the winning code is picked among those generated for that specific draw, the odds of scooping a EuroMillions raffle prize depends on the actual number of tickets sold.
