How to Play EuroMillions
To play EuroMillions, which has draws every Tuesday and Friday evening at around 20:00 (21:00 CET), you need to choose five main numbers from 1 to 50 and two Lucky Stars from 1 to 12.
You can play online or in-store via authorised retailers in participating countries, but the general steps for how to play remain the same:
Choose your five main numbers from 1-50 and one Lucky Stars from 1-12. You can either pick the numbers yourself, purchase a Lucky Dip or use a random number generator to create an entry.
Decide how many lines you want to buy.
Purchase your entries before the cutoff time for that draw.
