Euromillions Simulator has been updated to reflect these changes.
Euromillions is a European lottery carried out by the entrusted entities organizing lotteries in each of its participating countries: Belgium, France, Switzerland, Luxemburgo, United Kingdom, Ireland, Austria, Portugal and Spain.
The winning combination is made up by extracting 5 different balls from a drum containing numbers from 1 to 50, and two additional balls (lucky star numbers) from another drum, from 1 to 12. The more numbers you guess correctly the more money you win. There are 13 prize tiers in each EuroMillions draw, in ascending order: 2+0, 2+1, 1+2, 3+0, 3+1, 2+2, 3+2, 4+0, 4+1, 4+2, 5+0, 5+1 and 5+2. You can see the exact amounts for each tier from inside the simulation.
The draw is held in Paris every Tuesday and Friday. The amount of each prize depends on several factors: fixed distribution percentages for each category, collection and participation by country. If there are no 1st category winners (5 numbers and 2 stars) the prize is added to the jackpot fund for the following draw.
The winning odds for matching 5 numbers plus one star is 1 in
The winning odds for hitting the jackpot (5+2) is 1 in
Euromillions ticket costs 2.50€ in most countries.
