*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.
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.
