Friday Euromillions

The EuroMillions Lottery began in 1994 and because it pools the prize money for all of the constituent countries in which it is played it means that prizes are considerably larger than in other similar, national lotteries. With an average first week jackpot equivalent to £13m it is a much larger jackpot even than the UK Saturday Lotto draw which tends to offer a jackpot of around £4m to £5m. Add the possibility of one or more roll over weekends and you can soon have a jackpot fund of £100m or more causing a lot of excitement around the game.

How It’s Played

Players choose 5 main numbers between 1 and 50 as well as 2 lucky stars between 1 and 9. Prizes are awarded for matching 3 numbers, either 3 main numbers or a combination of 2 main numbers and 1 lucky star or 1 main number and 2 lucky stars, right up to the jackpot for matching all 5 main numbers and both lucky stars. With an average jackpot of £13m increasing your chances of sharing in the jackpot is every player’s aim.

Improve Your Odds

The simplest way to improve your chances of winning any of the prizes is to buy more tickets but few of us can afford to buy several tickets a week especially if we also play the UK Lotto, the Daily Draw, the Millionaire Raffle, and other prize draw or lottery games.
