How to Play EuroMillions
To play EuroMillions, which takes place every Tuesday and Friday evening, you need to choose five main numbers from 1 to 50 and two Lucky Stars from 1 to 12.
EuroMillions can be played online or through an authorised retailer in any of the nine participating countries. You can choose your own numbers or opt for a Lucky Dip ticket which allows a random set of numbers to be played on your behalf. Alternatively, you can use the Number Generator to produce your numbers.
When choosing your EuroMillions numbers online, you must decide on the draw in which you'd like to enter your numbers – Tuesday, Friday or both. You also have the option to play the same numbers for up to four weeks on one ticket, or even continuously by setting up a Direct Debit.
How to Win EuroMillions
The EuroMillions jackpot is won by matching the five main numbers and two Lucky Stars drawn on the night. There are a total of 13 prize tiers, and you can win by matching as few as two main numbers. Look at the EuroMillions Prizes page to find out more.
How to Play and Win Millionaire Maker
For every EuroMillions line bought on a UK ticket, a unique Millionaire Maker code is automatically generated. Players must match their code to one of the winning combinations that are revealed on the same night as the results for the main game.
In a regular draw, two of these codes are guaranteed to win their owners £1 million. You can find out more about this supplementary game at the Millionaire Maker page and the results appear alongside the winning numbers from the main game on the Lottery Results page.
How to Check Your Ticket
If you purchased a ticket online, you will receive an email notifying you if you have won a prize. You can then log in to your account to learn more about claiming your winnings. For tickets bought from an authorised retailer, there are a number of ways to find out if you are a winner:
- Visit the EuroMillions Results page and carefully check the winning numbers against your ticket.
- Enter your numbers into the EuroMillions Checker on this site which will check your numbers against the last 180 days’ worth of draws.
- Download the Lottery Results app to your iPhone or Android device so that you can check your numbers on the move.
- Take your ticket to a retailer and ask them to check it for you.
