(1) EuroMillions is a separate game in each participating country, but prizes are pooled and shared between all winning players using the results of a shared EuroMillions Draw. This is explained in more detail below. (2) UK Millionaire Maker is only available to play in the UK and Isle of Man. Camelot can withdraw the UK Millionaire Maker game at any time by giving at least four weeks’ notice. (3) EuroMillions costs £1.74 to play and UK Millionaire Maker costs 76 pence to play. However, as entry into UK Millionaire Maker is automatic when You play EuroMillions and the Games cannot be played separately, the total cost of playing is £2.50 (4) Draws for both Games take place on Tuesdays and Fridays, unless there are exceptional circumstances.

(1) To play EuroMillions on the Site or App, You should fill in the interactive play slip for EuroMillions by following the instructions provided. (2) A ‘week’, when mentioned in the number of weeks section, will start on the first available Tuesday or Friday Draw day that Your Entry is entered into and will end immediately before (and excluding) the Draws on the same day of the following calendar week. (3) For each EuroMillions Entry, You will be given a unique UK Millionaire Maker code made up of four letters and five numbers generated by Camelot’s Computer System – this will be Your UK Millionaire Maker Entry. (4) Your UK Millionaire Maker Entry will automatically be entered into the UK Millionaire Maker Draw taking place on the same day as the EuroMillions Draw You have entered. (5) If You buy a Multi-Draw EuroMillions Entry, the same UK Millionaire Maker code will be entered into all UK Millionaire Maker Draws that Your Multi-Draw EuroMillions Entry is valid for. As Camelot’s automatic draw machine selects a winning UK Millionaire Maker Entry at random from all valid UK Millionaire Maker Entries, each UK Millionaire Maker Entry has an equal chance of winning, regardless of whether it was bought on the day of the UK Millionaire Maker Draw or a number of weeks in advance. (6) If You are playing EuroMillions by Direct Debit, You will get a different UK Millionaire Maker Entry for each Millionaire Maker Draw. (7) If You have used Your Account to buy a EuroMillions Entry and Your Selection is not shown in Your “My account” section of the Site or App, then that Selection will not have been entered into any EuroMillions Draw and You will not have been issued with a UK Millionaire Maker Entry for that Selection. (8) It is possible to win a Prize and a UK Millionaire Maker Prize with one Entry.

1. If Your EuroMillions Entry matches any of the Prize categories in the table in Section (C)(2) below, You will win a Prize in the highest relevant Prize category, providing the requirements of the Rules and these Procedures are met.2. The value of Your Prize will depend on the number of tickets sold, the number of entries that match the same numbers as You, and currency exchange rates &ndash more detail is given on this in Section (C)(3) below. All Prizes will be rounded down to the nearest 10p. For estimated Prizes, see the EuroMillions page on the Site.

1. The table below sets out and explains the Prize categories, the approximate odds of winning and the proportion of the Common Prize Fund (explained in Section (C)(3)4 below) allocated to each Prize category.

ul> 2. Camelot is not liable in any circumstances, and will not pay a prize, to a player who bought an entry into EuroMillions from outside the UK or Isle of Man. Likewise, if You buy Your Entry from the UK or Isle of Man and win a Prize, You can only claim it from Camelot.

1. If there are more winners than expected in a Prize category for any EuroMillions Draw, the Prize for that Prize category might be lower than the Prize for a lower Prize category.2. If there are no winners in a Prize category (except the Jackpot category), the prize money allocated to that Prize category will be added to the next lower Prize category where there is at least one winner. If there are no winners in any Prize category in a EuroMillions Draw, the money will be added to the Jackpot Prize Fund (explained in Section (C)(3)10 below) for the next EuroMillions Draw.

3. Camelot will calculate 50% of the price paid for a EuroMillions Entry and this will be the fund Camelot uses to pay Prizes (“Camelot Prize Fund”).4. Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners currently allocate one Euro and ten cents per EuroMillions entry into a shared prize fund (“Common Prize Fund”). As sales in the UK and Isle of Man are in pounds sterling, Camelot uses the exchange rate confirmed by its bankers on the date of the relevant EuroMillions Draw to calculate its contribution.5. The Common Prize Fund is allocated to each Prize category in the proportions set out in the table in Section (C)(2) above. Once the allocation has been made, the Euro prize amounts relating to the number of winners in the UK and Isle of Man are payable to Camelot, and are converted into pounds sterling using the same exchange rate mentioned above.6. The difference between the Camelot Prize Fund and Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund is then dealt with in the following way: a) if the Camelot Prize Fund is greater than the sterling value of its contribution to the Common Prize Fund (using the same exchange rate mentioned above), the excess is added to the funds available to pay UK and Isle of Man Prizes in each Prize category, excluding the Jackpot category. The excess is shared in the same proportion which the amount of Prizes payable in one Prize category has to the total amount of Prizes payable across all Prize categories (excluding the Jackpot category); and b) if the Camelot Prize Fund is less than the sterling value of its contribution to the Common Prize Fund (using the same exchange rate mentioned above), the shortfall is deducted from the funds available to pay UK and Isle of Man Prizes in each Prize category (excluding the Jackpot category). The shortfall is shared in the same proportion which the amount of Prizes payable in one Prize category has to the total amount of Prizes payable across all Prize categories (excluding the Jackpot category).7. The effect of the above is that where players in the UK and Isle of Man pay more than the pound sterling equivalent of two Euros and twenty cents (€2.20) for a EuroMillions Entry, the excess mentioned in a) above is kept for distribution amongst UK and Isle of Man winners. This means Prizes in all Prize categories (except the Jackpot Prize category) are increased. Where players in the UK and Isle of Man pay less, Prizes in all Prize categories (except the Jackpot category) are reduced. The overall contribution by Camelot is therefore maintained at 50% of the cost of a EuroMillions Entry.

8. For each EuroMillions Draw, a percentage of the Common Prize Fund will be added to a fund known as the EuroMillions Reserve Fund. The EuroMillions Reserve Fund is shared by Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners and can be used to increase the value of the Jackpot, and increase the value of the Prize in any Prize category (with the consent of the Commission), and for other promotional purposes (including, for example, funding European Millionaire Maker Prizes). The percentage added to the EuroMillions Reserve Fund will be as set out in the following table.

Prizes table

Draw Number in a EuroMillions roll series 3 Percentage allocated to the EuroMillions Reserve Fund
EuroMillions Draw numbers 1 to 5 inclusive‡ 10%
EuroMillions Draw number 6 to the last Draw in that roll series. 18%

/ul>

9. Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners may decide to make any EuroMillions Draw a “Super Draw”. There are two types of Super Draw – both have a guaranteed minimum Jackpot, but the difference between them is what happens to the Jackpot if no one wins it.10. The table below sets out the different types of EuroMillions Draws and the Jackpot amount available for each (“Jackpot Prize Fund”), and also explains what happens to the Jackpot if it is not won.

Table showing the different types of EuroMillions Draws and the Jackpot amount available for each (“Jackpot Prize Fund”), and explaining what happens to the Jackpot if it is not won

Type of EuroMillions Draw Jackpot Prize Fund*** What happens to the Jackpot Prize Fund if there are no winners in the Jackpot Prize category?
EuroMillions Draw See the Jackpot category row in the table in Section (C)(2)(1) It is rolled over and added to the Jackpot Prize Fund for the next EuroMillions Draw (and if relevant, to the EuroMillions Draw after that)***
Super Draw One – EuroMillions Super Minimum Jackpot Guarantee Draw (SMJG) A guaranteed minimum amount It is rolled over and added to the Jackpot Prize Fund for the next EuroMillions Draw (and if relevant, to the EuroMillions Draw after that)***
Super Draw Two – EuroMillions Event Draw A guaranteed minimum amount It rolls down to the next Prize category, in the same EuroMillions Draw, where there is at least one winner

**subject to the Jackpot cap (see below).

11. The Jackpot Prize Fund is shared equally between all EuroMillions winners (across all EuroMillions countries) in the Jackpot category. Any Jackpot Prize payable to a winner in the UK and Isle of Man will be converted from Euros to pounds sterling (using the exchange rate confirmed by Camelot’s bankers on the relevant EuroMillions Draw date) and is, therefore, subject to currency fluctuations.

12. As at 26th July 2022, the EuroMillions Jackpot is not allowed to exceed €240million (two hundred and forty million Euros). If the Jackpot for any EuroMillions Draw reaches this cap, the Jackpot will stay at this amount. Any prize money that would have increased the Jackpot above the level of the Jackpot cap will roll down to the next Prize category in that EuroMillions Draw where there is at least one winner, thereby increasing prizes in that lower Prize category. Once the Jackpot has reached the cap, it can roll four times before it must be won. This means that if the Jackpot is not won in the first EuroMillions Draw when the cap is reached, it will stay at the level of the cap for the next four EuroMillions Draws, providing it is not won. If the Jackpot is not won in that fourth EuroMillions Draw (which will be the fifth successive EuroMillions Draw at the Jackpot cap), the Jackpot Prize Fund will roll down to the next Prize category where there is at least one winner.13. If the Jackpot reaches the cap, then after it is won or has rolled down in line with Section (C)(3)12 above, the Jackpot cap will increase by €10million (ten million Euros). This process will repeat after each time a Jackpot cap is reached and is won or has rolled down as set out in Section (C)(3)12 above, until the maximum Jackpot cap of €250million (two hundred and fifty million Euros) has been reached.14. Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners can change the level of the Jackpot cap at any time.

1. Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners may decide to run a European Millionaire Maker Draw from time to time which will be in addition to the EuroMillions Draw.2. If You buy a EuroMillions Entry for the day of the European Millionaire Maker Draw, the UK Millionaire Maker Entry You get will also be Your European Millionaire Maker Entry, and You will automatically be entered into that European Millionaire Maker Draw.3. If Your European Millionaire Maker Entry matches all of the letters and numbers in the exact order (reading from left to right), and your ticket serial number matches the ticket serial number which Camelot holds for a winning European Millionaire Maker Entry, You will win a European Millionaire Maker Prize, provided the requirements of the Rules and these Procedures are met.4. For each European Millionaire Maker Draw there will be a number of prizes of €1,000,000 (one million Euros) (or any other amount, which may be more than €1,000,000, as agreed by the EuroMillions Partners) available to be won (each a “European Millionaire Maker Prize”). The number of European Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won will be advertised before the European Millionaire Maker Draw, and may change in each European Millionaire Maker Draw. The number of European Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won in a European Millionaire Maker Draw will be only the number advertised by Camelot for that European Millionaire Maker Draw, regardless of the number of European Millionaire Maker Prizes that were available to be won in any previous European Millionaire Maker Draw.5. The European Millionaire Maker Prizes will be funded from the EuroMillions Reserve Fund. If a Player wins a European Millionaire Maker Prize, Camelot will convert the €1,000,000 into pounds sterling using the exchange rate confirmed by its bankers on the date of the relevant European Millionaire Maker Draw. Camelot may then, at its discretion, use the UK Millionaire Maker Reserve Fund (see Section (D)(2)5) to pay each Player that won a European Millionaire Maker Prize an additional amount, if any, so that the total amount payable to the Player equals £1,000,000 (one million pounds). Camelot will advertise in advance of the European Millionaire Maker Draw if it intends to increase the amount payable to Players who win a European Millionaire Maker Prize to £1,000,000, and previous decisions made by Camelot to do so will not be binding for future European Millionaire Maker Draws.

1. If, for any reason, Camelot or any EuroMillions Partner is suspended from taking part in a EuroMillions Draw, players in that EuroMillions country will not be allowed to play in that Draw. If Camelot is suspended, it also means that players in the UK and Isle of Man may not be able to take part in the corresponding UK Millionaire Maker Draw.2. Where Camelot considers it reasonable to do so, it may postpone a EuroMillions Draw (or any European Millionaire Maker Draw) for as long as it considers to be appropriate in the circumstances. In that case (by way of example only, where there has been a significant disruption to the sale of Entries for the Games) Camelot may continue to sell Entries for that EuroMillions Draw (and any European Millionaire Maker Draw) beyond the normal Draw break for that EuroMillions Draw.

1. If Camelot does not take part in a EuroMillions Draw for any reason, it will not be liable to anyone for (including but not limited to) the following:

a) any failure to contribute to the Common Prize Fund for that EuroMillions Draw, and a resulting reduction in the prize that a EuroMillions Partner would otherwise have paid that person; and/or b) any special, indirect or consequential loss suffered by that person.2. If a EuroMillions Partner does not take part in a EuroMillions Draw for any reason, Camelot will not be liable to a EuroMillions player in the UK or Isle of Man, or anyone who plays EuroMillions in any other EuroMillions country. This includes, but is not limited to: a) liability arising from any failure by a EuroMillions Partner to contribute to the Common Prize Fund and a resulting reduction in the Prize that Camelot would have otherwise paid to a winner in the UK or Isle of Man; and/or b) any special, indirect or consequential loss suffered by that person.

Back to the top

If Your UK Millionaire Maker Entry matches all of the letters and numbers in the exact order chosen in a UK Millionaire Maker Draw (reading from left to right), and your ticket serial number matches the ticket serial number which Camelot holds for a winning UK Millionaire Maker Entry, You will win a UK Millionaire Maker Prize, providing the requirements of the Rules and these Procedures are met.

1. There is one UK Millionaire Maker prize of £1,000,000 (one million pounds) (the “UK Millionaire Maker Prize”) available to be won in each UK Millionaire Maker Draw. Camelot can at any time increase the number of UK Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won in a UK Millionaire Maker Draw – usually referred to as a “Super Raffle” – and/or the amount of a UK Millionaire Maker Prize.2. Camelot may offer non-cash prize(s) with a UK Millionaire Maker Prize in special UK Millionaire Maker Draws from time to time, Camelot will advertise details of any non-cash prizes, including what they are and when they are available to be won, in advance and further details will be set out in the applicable Game Specific Rules which will be available on the Site.3. Camelot may also run special draws from time to time which Players can get entry into via the Site. Details of such special draws, including when they are being held and the prize(s) available to be won, will be set out in the applicable Game Specific Rules which will be available on the Site. Camelot will also advertise these special draws.4. A percentage of the total value of UK Millionaire Maker Entries in a UK Millionaire Maker Draw will be available to pay the UK Millionaire Maker Prize(s), and the current percentage can be found on the Site, Any prize money in excess of that needed to pay the UK Millionaire Maker Prize(s) for that UK Millionaire Maker Draw will be put in a fund known as the UK Millionaire Maker Reserve Fund. 5. The UK Millionaire Maker Reserve Fund will be used if there aren’t enough funds from sales to pay the UK Millionaire Maker Prize(s) in any UK Millionaire Maker Draw. It can also be used: a) to increase the amount of a UK Millionaire Maker Prize(s); and/or b) to fund additional UK Millionaire Maker Prizes in a Super Raffle or in special UK Millionaire Maker Draws (including non-cash Prizes); and/or c) to pay each Player that won a European Millionaire Maker Prize an additional amount so that the total amount payable to the Player equals £1,000,000 (one million pounds) and to fund prizes in any special draws accessible via the Site; and/or d) any other purposes approved by the Commission.6. The odds of winning the UK Millionaire Maker Prize are one in the total number of UK Millionaire Maker Entries for that UK Millionaire Maker Draw (except in a Super Raffle or in special UK Millionaire Maker Draws). This means that Your chances of winning will reduce as more people play EuroMillions and UK Millionaire Maker – this is likely to be when EuroMillions rolls, when there is a European Millionaire Maker Draw or when there is a EuroMillions Super Draw.7. The table below sets out the approximate odds of winning the UK Millionaire Maker Prize (where only one UK Millionaire Maker Prize is available to be won) when there is no rollover money in the EuroMillions Draw that day (“EuroMillions Base Draw”) and no European Millionaire Maker Draw, and when EuroMillions has rolled four times and there is no European Millionaire Maker Draw.

Table showing the approximate odds of winning a UK Millionaire Maker Prize (where only one UK Millionaire Maker Prize is available to be won) when there is no rollover money in the EuroMillions Draw that day (“EuroMillions Base Draw”) and no European Millionaire Maker Draw, and when EuroMillions has rolled four times, and there is no European Millionaire Maker Draw.

Draw Date/Type Approximate Odds of Winning
Tuesday – EuroMillions Base Draw 1:4,330,000 (based on expected sales of 4.33million UK Millionaire Maker entries)
Friday – EuroMillions Base Draw 1:5,740,000 (based on expected sales of 5.74million UK Millionaire Maker entries)
Tuesday – EuroMillions 4th rollover 1:5,220,000 (based on expected sales of 5.22million UK Millionaire Maker entries)
Friday – EuroMillions 4th rollover 1:7,820,000 (based on expected sales of 7.82million UK Millionaire Maker entries)

8. As there will be more UK Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won in a Super Raffle and in special UK Millionaire Maker Draws, Your chances of winning a UK Millionaire Maker Prize will change depending on the number of UK Millionaire Maker Entries into the UK Millionaire Maker Draw and the number of UK Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won.

Where Camelot considers it reasonable to do so, it may postpone a UK Millionaire Maker Draw for as long as it considers to be appropriate in the circumstances. In that case (by way of example only, where there has been a significant disruption to the sale of Entries for the Games) Camelot may continue to sell Entries for that UK Millionaire Maker Draw beyond the normal Draw break for that UK Millionaire Maker Draw.

Camelot may then, at its discretion and following investigation, refund into Your Account an amount equal to the cost of the duplicate Entry(ies).

(2) The words “and recorded in writing by the witness mentioned in Rule 8.2(b)” are deleted from Rule 8.5.

    How to win at EuroMillions?

      Home Prizes

    There are 13 different ways to win EuroMillions prizes. The payouts start for matching just two main numbers and increase in value as you match more. To win the jackpot, you must match all five main numbers plus the two Lucky Stars. Prize values vary depending on ticket sales and the number of winners in each prize tier.

    • The following table shows all the different categories in which you can win a payout.
    • You can also see the percentage of the prize fund that goes to each tier, the odds of winning, and a range of prize statistics.
    • Find out the highest and lowest amounts ever given away in each category, along with the highest and lowest number of winners.

    In the event that the jackpot is not won, it will roll over to the next draw and be added to the jackpot fund for the following draw. If the jackpot reaches €240 million, it will be capped and held at that level for a maximum of four draws. The top prize must then be won in the fifth draw at €240 million.

    This column displays the percentage of the prize fund allocated to each prize level. The remaining 10% goes into a separate fund, known as the Reserve Fund, which is used to ensure there is always enough for the advertised minimum jackpot of €17 million.

    EuroMillions occasionally holds special draws or promotions, where the guaranteed minimum jackpot can be increased up to as much as €130 million, using surplus funds from the Reserve Fund. The 50% allocated to the top tier only applies for the first five draws in a series of rollovers. Once the top prize has rolled over five times in a row, the ‘Match 5 + 2’ allocation is adjusted down to 42% until the jackpot gets won.

    The remaining 8% goes to the Reserve Fund, ensuring that this booster pot receives 18% of funds from the sixth draw in a rollover series until the jackpot is won. The lowest and highest prize amounts for each prize tier, other than the jackpot, are in respect of individual winning tickets.

    The Prize Guarantee Fund is available to contribute to the jackpot, for example, to boost the initial jackpot in a sequence of growing jackpots. The amount utilized each week is determined in advance by the participating lotteries.

    • (a) per entry
    • (b) prize fund = 50% of sales main draw
    • (b) sales main draw = €2.20 in pounds sterling per entry (exchange rate!) times number of entries
    • (X) draw 1 to 5: 50% + 10% & draw 6 (or higher): 42% + 18%
    • (c) expected winnings are based on the currency exchange rate as at 7 December 2019, 1 euro = 0.8419 pound, rounded to 1 pound
    • The odds of winning any prize at all are 1 in 13
    • The odds of getting none of the 50 main balls but getting both lucky stars is approximately 1 in 115. This means that it is less likely than getting 2 main balls and one lucky star (1 in 49). However, there is no prize for only getting 2 lucky stars.
    • The figures for the estimated prize are just a guide, and the actual amount varies according to the total in the prize fund and the number of winners for each prize. (Estimated prizes as per reverse of UK payslip)
    • If the Jackpot is not won, it rolls over to the next draw.

    Effective 7 November 2009 new rules were put in place regarding rollovers:

    • The new rules introduced a Jackpot Pool Cap. Once the jackpot reached €185,000,000, the Jackpot will remain at €185,000,000 and any additional prize money rolled over would be added to the jackpot pool for the next lower prize level containing at least one winner (5 main numbers + 1 Lucky Star or possibly even just five main numbers).
    • After the capped jackpot is reached, either won or rolled down, the next capped jackpot cap would increase by £5million.

    A new rule change of 12 January 2012 locked the Jackpot cap at €190,000,000 permanently and if the jackpot was not won after two draws, the prize money would be distributed among the winners at the next level. A new rule change of 24 September 2016 stated that if the jackpot is not won five draws after it reaches €190,000,000, the prize money will be distributed among the winners at the next level.

    1. The minimum jackpot prize increased from 15m euros to 17m euros.
    2. In February 2020, the rules regarding the EuroMillions jackpot changed again.
    3. The new cap was set at €200,000,000, but that would no longer be fixed.
    4. If the jackpot gets to this amount, the cycle can last for five draws.
    5. If there are no winners in the fifth draw, the jackpot is paid out to the lower tier.

    For the next cycle, the maximum jackpot is set to €210,000,000, and is again paid out to the lower tier if there is no winner. In subsequent cycles, the maximum jackpot is raised to 220, 230, 240 and finally 250 million euros. The latest maximum jackpot, €230m, was reached on 8 July 2022.

    How long after winning the lottery do you get the money UK?

    They work closely with banks that have experience with lottery winners and can arrange for a representative to attend the meeting so the account can be set up immediately. Once everything has been confirmed, the money can go into your account. This can be expected to go through within 48 hours.

    Why is EuroMillions jackpot not increasing?

    How Does the Jackpot Cap Work? – The EuroMillions jackpot starts at €17 million (approximately £15 million) and if it is not won it increases in value for the next draw, in what is known as a ‘rollover’. There is no fixed rate at which the jackpot increases; the final value is determined by ticket sales and agreed by all participating countries.

    How long can you play EuroMillions?

    Choose five main numbers between 1 and 50 and two Lucky Star numbers between 1 and 12. Tickets can be purchased online or from any authorised retailer for up to eight consecutive draws, including both the Tuesday and Friday evening draws, covering a period of up to four weeks.

    • Please note that it is not possible to purchase tickets in advance for a particular draw if you are not also purchasing a ticket for the preceding draw.
    • For example, if you want to purchase a ticket for a Friday evening draw being held in three weeks’ time, you would either have to purchase your ticket after the preceding Friday evening draw had taken place OR purchase tickets for all Friday evening draws up to and including the draw you had a particular interest in.

    What are the millionaire maker codes?

    How it Works –

    • For every line of EuroMillions numbers sold in the UK, a unique serial code is generated. This consists of four letters and five numbers, starting with H, J, M, T, V, X or Z.
    • To win the £1 million prize, your code must match exactly the code that is selected as the winner. Every character must be in the same position.
    • The draw only includes the valid codes that have been generated for that draw, so the prize is always guaranteed to have a winner.
    • An Automated Draw Machine (ADM) is used to pick the winner. Millionaire Maker codes purchased on multiple-draw tickets which are still valid will also be entered into the ADM. These machines have been used in the UK for many years, and are regularly checked. An ADM ensures EuroMillions can operate a fast, reliable and completely random Millionaire Maker draw.
    • If you win, you have 180 days to claim your prize,
    • The European Millionaire Maker works in a similar way to the UK Millionaire Maker, but is open to everyone who plays a line in any of the nine participating EuroMillions nations, and the first letter of the code will be different in each country.
