Euro Millions was launched on the gaming scene to great acclaim back in 2004. As soon as final approval had been granted by officials, the inaugural draw of the Euro millions lottery took place on 13 February 2004. Euro Millions has become hugely popular, a phenomenon directly attributable to the fact that it is Europe’s richest lottery.
Euro Millions is the result of a collaboration between the UK’s national lottery operator Camelot, France’s Française des Jeux and Spain’s state lottery body. The result is a huge prize pool. From Tuesday 10th May 2011 there's an extra draw on Tuesdays. Drawn each Tuesday and Friday night at 7.30pm (UK time), it has many more prizes than the lotteries of individual nations. All for a ticket price of only £2.
While national lotteries tend to be limited to the residents of one particular country, the beauty of the Euro Millions event is the pooling of stakes from the participating European countries. With mind-blowing rollover figures, like the €129 million prize awarded on February 12th, 2010, when two winners split the sum, Euro Millions keeps its many fans on the edge of their seats.
How Euro Millions Draws Work
The Euro Millions lottery takes the form of a combination draw involving 5 balls drawn from 50, PLUS 2 Lucky Star balls drawn from 1-11. To be eligible to claim the jackpot, the 5 balls plus the 2 lucky stars must be match your numbers. But the great news is that there are altogether twelve ways to win a cash prize! All the prizes won by UK ticket-holders are paid as tax-free lump sums. There's a new minimum prize - for matching two main numbers (Match 2+0 Stars), which will pay out an estimated £2.70.
Especially for players resident in the UK are the 2x weekly Millionaire Raffles. This draw, also held on a Tuesday and Friday, GUARANTEES every entry a chance of winning £1,000,000, with no rollover. In addition to this, the Euro Millions Lottery holds periodic Superdraws with jackpots of up to £14,000,000.
