The first EuroMillions lottery draw took place in 2004, with a prize of €15 million. The biggest ever jackpot – €190 million – was awarded in 2012 to a winner in Suffolk.
EuroMillions draws take place take place on Tuesday and Friday evenings at 9pm UK time / 10pm CET. Tickets are valid for a 180 days. Players must match all five EuroMillions winning numbers and both Lucky Star numbers to win. The prize rolls over to the next week if it is not won, added to the next week’s regular jackpot.
There is no limit to the amount of times EuroMillions can rollover. When the jackpot pool reaches €190m, however, it is capped for a maximum of two draws. Any further rollovers are treated as roll downs; money from ticket sales is allocated to the next winning prize tier down that has at least one winner.
The Millionaire Raffle is a free bonus raffle with a £1m prize. UK Euro Millions players are automatically entered buying a ticket, which contains a unique number consisting of three letters and six numbers. In the UK, there is no tax on EuroMillions winnings.
EuroMillions Superdraws take place a couple of times a year. A Superdraw jackpot increases to £85/€100 million. If no superdraw winner matches five main numbers and two Lucky Stars, the jackpot rolls over to the next draw.
£8,145,065 has yet to be claimed across the UK in National Lottery and EuroMillions prize money. Unclaimed National Lottery prizes go to the National Lottery Good Causes Fund, which has received £31 billion since the National Lottery launched in November 1994
