EuroDreams Lottery Launching on 6th November
EuroDreams is a new multinational lottery that offers big monthly winnings rather than a one-off jackpot. It is played in most of the countries where EuroMillions is available, but not in the UK. It launched with its first draw in November 2023.
Draws take place every Monday and Thursday night, and there are multiple ways to win. Find out how to play and all about the prizes you can win.
Check the results here after the draws have taken place.
How to Play
Similar to EuroMillions, EuroDreams is a double-matrix game. You have to choose six numbers between 1 and 40, plus an additional Dream Number from a separate range of 1 to 5.
Decide how many draws to play, and make sure you purchase your tickets before the cut-off time. Draws take place at approximately 8pm UK time (9pm local time in France).
The cost of a ticket in the European countries is €2.50.
Prizes and Odds of Winning
The top prize in EuroDreams is €20,000 per month for 30 years (€7.2 million in total), for anyone who matches all seven numbers that are drawn.
If you match all six main numbers without the Dream Number, the prize is €2,000 a month for five years (€120,000 in total). The table below shows all the prize categories, together with the odds of winning.
|6 + Dream Ball||€20,000 every month for 30 years||1 in 19,191,900|
|6||€2,000 every month for 5 years||1 in 4,797,975|
|5||Estimated €120||1 in 18,815.6|
|4||Estimated €40||1 in 456.1|
|3||Estimated €5||1 in 32.1|
|2||€2.50||1 in 5.5|
The most that can be paid out for the first prize tier is €21.6 million per draw, which works out at three winners. If there are four or more winners, each player would receive a reduced amount as a one-time payment.
There is a prize cap of €1.44 million for the second tier, so if there are more than 12 winners the amount is divided equally between them.
Another Annuity Lottery
Set For Life became the UK’s first annuity game when it was introduced in March 1019, taking inspiration from similar lotteries across the world (especially the U.S.) which have proved popular in recent years.
Annuity lotteries work in a similar way to other games for the most part – you have to match numbers to win prizes – but the jackpot is spread out over years rather than paid out in one go.
In the case of Set For Life, you can win £10,000 a month for 30 years. The advantage of this type of game is that it provides you with a guaranteed income for a long time. Even if you make some expensive purchases, the next big payment is just around the corner.
The main difference with EuroDreams is that it is offered to players in all other EuroMillions countries. With Set For Life already available in the UK, the National Lottery decided not to participate.
