History of EuroMillions Lottery

by John Smith Proffesional Manager

To win this transnational lottery EuroMillions, you need to get all seven numbers correct. It first made its debut on February 7nd 2004, and the first numbers got drawn almost one week later, on February 13th. The first lotto winner was a Frenchman who won a whopping €15 million.

Spain, Paris, and the United Kingdom took part in the first EuroMillions Lottery on February 7th, 2004, for a jackpot of €15 million. It became a defining moment when Switzerland, Austria, Ireland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and Portugal joined in the same year.

By 2009, new rules were implemented concerning rollovers in the lotto. These include:

       There is a jackpot pool cap. The cash in the jackpot will roll over up until it reaches €185,000,000.

       When someone has won the Jackpot Pool Cap, it will grow by €5,000,000, meaning the next jackpot will be €190,000,000 and, after that, €195,000,000.

       The jackpot will stay the same for the next draw if it gets won, and any additional money will go towards the jackpot pool for the next lower prize level.

By 2016, various other changes occurred. The price increased in the UK from £2.00 to £2.50, and Spain and Ireland increased their cost per line to €2.50. On the same day, the pool of numbers increased from a pool of 11 to 12.


In February of 2021, the rules changed again for the Euro lotto, and the new cap for the jackpot will be €220,000,000. If the money is not won for five draws, the money will get paid to the following tier winners.

The biggest winner to date was on October 2nd, 2018. A Swiss player won an impressive €144 million in this Euro lotto. Are you the next big winner?

Rules of EuroMillions

 As with all games, there are some general rules when playing the EuroMillions Lottery. These include the following:

  2. Tickets must be submitted before the 7:30 GMT draw.
  3. Prizes can only get claimed in the country the tickets were bought in.
  4. The period in which you can claim your prizes varies from country to country. For example, France has the lowest claiming period of 60 days, and Austria has the longest claiming period of 3 years.

How to Play EuroMillions

 Playing EuroMillions is easy! You can submit your ticket on your mobile phone, desktop, or in-store in the UK. Just follow the following steps:

       Select five numbers between 1 and 50, followed by two Lucky Stars numbers between 1 and 12. If you are playing online, add your numbers in the relevant fields, and if you are playing with a ticket you bought in-store, draw a thick horizontal line over the number of your choice.

       Decide how many times you want to enter the lotto. You can buy up to seven lines of different numbers on a ticket.

       Choose the draw days you want to play on. For example, you can play them all on Tuesday or Friday before 7:30 pm GMT or divide them between the two days. If you are playing with a physical ticket, let the retailer know before submitting your entry. You can choose to submit entries for up to four weeks, which is eight entries.

       Pay for the ticket, and it costs €2.50 per line. This will ensure your numbers are registered. If you are playing the lotto online, log into your account, and your lines are secure and available for viewing.

       Check the results. If you purchased your ticket in the store, you need to take it to your retailer and scan the ticket to find out if you have won. Winning tickets in the UK expire after 180 days, so be sure to claim your money as soon as possible.

How to check your results

You can easily check your results to see if you have won any prizes by simply using the EuroMillions website checker.
