EuroMillions Prizes

EuroMillions prizes can grow to a jackpot cap of €190 million, and players are presented with a one-in-13 chance of winning in one of the game's 13 tiers. Cash amounts are awarded for matching anything from as little as two main numbers, up to the multimillion-pound jackpot for matching all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars.

The jackpot starts at a guaranteed €17 million (roughly £14 million) and rolls over every time no one matches the entire winning line. When it hits €190 million, any extra funds that would have boosted the jackpot are instead rolled down to the next winning prize tier. The jackpot must be won after four draws at €190 million or the entire pool is rolled down and shared amongst the winners in the next tier.

EuroMillions Statistics and Prize Amounts

Each prize tier is allocated a different percentage of the overall prize fund for the draw, meaning that the amount you win will depend on how many tickets are sold and how many other winners there are in that tier.

This table shows the prize allocation, highest and lowest winning amounts in each tier, the average prize amount and lowest, highest and average number of winners in that bracket. The table is updated following each EuroMillions draw to bring you the most up-to-date information.

Figures calculated using results drawn between 10/05/2011 and 02/12/2016.

[1] This represents the percentage of the overall prize fund distributed to each winning tier. There is also an amount worth 8.6 percent that is placed in a Booster Fund and ensures the base jackpot can be guaranteed to stand at €17 million. Occasional Superdraws, held throughout the year and offering jackpots of €130 million, are paid for using a surplus from the Booster Fund.

[2] These amounts are the highest and lowest won on a single winning ticket for each tier except Match 5+2.

[3] Prize values for the jackpot tier relate to the overall amount, regardless of the number of winning players.

[4] This is the highest the jackpot has ever reached in sterling, which was worth €185 million at the time. Although there have been two winners of €190 million, the fluctuating exchange rate meant the sterling amounts were lower on both occasions than for this draw on Friday 8th July 2011.

[5] From the base jackpot of 17 million, the percentage of the prize fund dedicated to the jackpot can stand at 43.2% for the first six draws of a rollover cycle, with 4.8% added to the EuroMillions Booster Fund. From the seventh draw onwards, 27% is directed to the jackpot and 21% to the Booster Fund until the jackpot is won or rolls down.

No one won the jackpot of £164.7 million on 8th July 2011 and, as the top prize was at the then jackpot cap of 185 million, the Euro total stayed the same for the following draw on Tuesday 12th July 2011. Colin and Christine Weir of Largs, Ayrshire, matched all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars in that draw, but the sterling value had fallen to £161.6 million in the intervening four days.
