Where to buy tickets for EuroMillions

You can buy an online lottery ticket for EuroMillions by logging on to the EuroMillions site in your country, provided that:

  • You are in that country at the time; and
  • That country is one of the nine in which EuroMillions operates.

That is an important consideration, because – for legal reasons – taking part in this online lottery is restricted to people who are in a participating country at the time. If it’s in another country, your purchase of the online lottery ticket will be prevented.

And the second problem arises if you win and is much the same – into which bank account do you want them to transfer the money? Of course, if you have won a very large sum, it will be worth travelling to the country in question, taking up short-term residence and opening a bank account – but that will hardly be sensible if you have one, say, five euros.

The history of EuroMillions

The history of EuroMillions

The original intention was to launch this online lottery game in 1999 at the same time as the EU’s new currency, the euro, was launched – but, for a variety of reasons, that didn’t happen. EuroMillions eventually began five years later in February 2004. At that time the only countries involved were France, Spain, and the UK, of which the third hadn’t even adopted the Euro (and still hasn’t and nor, now, is it even a member of the EU) and the first jackpot was worth €15 million.

In subsequent years, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland (which is also not in the EU and also does not have the euro as its currency) have all joined in. One of the most amazing aspects of EuroMillions is the sheer size of prizes on offer. At the present time, the largest jackpot ever won is €190 million.

Quite often, the jackpot is won by a lottery syndicate – a prize of €183 million was shared by three people who had bought the same ticket together – but Dolores McNamara in Ireland won £77 million in two thousand and five and in 2009 an unknown Spanish woman won £110 million.

First, bear in mind that the draws are made at 8 PM UK time (which will be different in other European countries) on Tuesdays and Fridays. If you want to play, you need to buy your game tickets online before the draw closes – before 7.30 PM UK time on the day of the draw at the latest, but never forget that online transactions can be interrupted for a number of reasons and the sensible online lottery player buys his or her tickets earlier than that.

Picking your numbers

You need to choose five main numbers between 1 and 50 and two more numbers between 1 and 12 (these are known as your Lucky Star numbers). If you’d rather leave everything to chance, ask for a Lucky Dip and the EuroMillions computer will choose your numbers at random.

How many weeks do you want to play?

You can decide to play in the Tuesday draw, the Friday draw, or both and you can play for up to 4 weeks in advance.

The rules of the game

In every EuroMillions draw, the system selects 5 numbers and 2 Lucky Stars, completely at random. You win a prize when you match some or all of these numbers. Match all seven and you get a share of the jackpot (if no one else has matched all seven, you’ll get the lot!) that’s the top tier of EuroMillions lottery – there are twelve other tiers so you can win a prize all the way down to matching only two numbers.

Tips and tricks to play EuroMillions

Tips and tricks to play EuroMillions

You may think that it’s impossible to work out a system making a EuroMillions win more likely – but that isn’t really so. What you need to do is think about what has already happened in the past. As a fairly simple rule of life that says that what happens most often is most likely to happen again, while what happens. It is least likely to happen again. Taking this into account, here’s what the past history of EuroMillions wins tells us is most likely to help you to a prize:

  • When you choose your numbers, choose a mix of odd and even
  • When you choose your numbers, choose a mix of high and low

Why those two rules? Because more prizes have been one with a mix of odd and even numbers than with a concentration on either – and the same applies to a mix of high and low numbers.

The numbers that have won are all on the website. You can research them. You’ll find patterns. Some groups of numbers occur more often than others. That is also true of some individual numbers. Work out what the pattern is and that will tell you when to play them.
