|Main Numbers Matched||Lucky Stars Matched||Estimated Win|
There are special events and SuperDraws that feature much larger jackpots than the average for the game (€46.4 million). Watch for such events to increase your chances of earning higher amounts. The overall odds of winning any EuroMillions award are 1 in 13.
All of the prizes, including the jackpot are paid as a lump sum. The prizes are tax-free, apart from the ones won in Switzerland, Spain and Portugal.
You win by matching at least 2 numbers or 1 number and 2 Lucky Stars.
Prize claim deadlines vary by country (from three years in Austria to 60 days in France and Luxembourg). Prizes can only be claimed in the EU country where the ticket was purchased.
If there is no jackpot winner, the jackpot rolls over to the next drawing until it reaches a cap of €190 million.
