Millionaire Maker

UK ticket holders also get an additional chance to win in every draw as each entry also includes a Millionaire Maker raffle code. Matching a winning code will win you an incredible 1 million. Unlike the main draw, this supplementary game does not have fixed odds. Your likelihood of winning is influenced by how many tickets are sold and how many codes are drawn.

Entry to HotPicks is not included with a standard EuroMillions ticket. It is a stand-alone game which costs 1.50 to play. The results use the same five numbers as the main EuroMillions draw, the Lucky Stars are not used. Find out your odds of winning in the table below:

Game Type To Win Odds
Pick 5 Match 5 numbers 1 in 2,118,760
Pick 4 Match 4 numbers 1 in 46,060
Pick 3 Match 3 numbers 1 in 1,960
Pick 2 Match 2 numbers 1 in 123
Pick 1 Match 1 number 1 in 10

Why are the odds different?

As HotPicks is played differently to the main EuroMillions game, the odds of winning are not the same. For example, the chances of matching two numbers in EuroMillions are 1 in 22 because you can match any two of five chosen numbers. In the Pick 2 HotPicks game, you only choose two numbers and have to match them both to win. As a result, there is less chance that you will match two numbers so the odds are longer at 1 in 123.

The longer odds for the Pick 3 and Pick 4 versions of HotPicks can be explained in the same way, but the reverse is true for the Pick 5 game. The chances of winning are actually better than your odds of matching exactly five main numbers in the main game. This is because you have to select two Lucky Stars to play EuroMillions and there is a chance you will match at least one of them in addition to the five main numbers. The Lucky Stars are not played in HotPicks, so there is more chance of matching exactly five main numbers.

Improving your Odds

There is no practical way to guarantee that you will win the EuroMillions jackpot as you would have to buy every combination of numbers, but there are some ways you can improve your chances of winning.
