*This was the sterling amount on offer in the draw on Friday 8th July, which ended in a rollover. As the game had reached its jackpot cap, the top prize remained at €185 million for the next draw on Tuesday 12th July, however the fluctuating exchange rate meant the sterling amount actually reduced to £161,653,000. Colin and Christine Weir of Largs in Ayrshire won the jackpot in that draw.
Approximately 8.6% of the prize fund for every draw is allocated to what is known as the Booster Fund, which is used to increase the value of EuroMillions jackpots when necessary.
How EuroMillions Prizes are Calculated
EuroMillions prizes are pari-mutuel, meaning that the value of a prize in each winning tier is calculated according to the number of winning tickets in that same tier. If there are a large number of prize winners in a given tier, then the prize amount distributed to each winning ticket will be lower. If there are fewer winning tickets, the value of the prize will increase accordingly.
