How to Play UK EuroMillions

 Rules for the EuroMillions Lottery

UK EuroMillions Lottery Rules

All you have to do if you want to try your luck at UK EuroMillions is to pick 5 main numbers from a range of 1-50 and 2 Lucky Starts (1-12). If it's inspiration you need, then our amazing collection of songs about the lottery should get you into the right mood.

You will need to match all of the winning numbers to hit the jackpot, which starts at €17 million (approximately £15 million) and can grow with every rollover until it reaches €190 million (approximately £168 million). Unlike the American lotto games, which feature unlimited jackpots, in the UK EuroMillions if the first prize is still not won, it stays at the same value of 4 consecutive draws. If after the 4 draws there is no top prize winner, the jackpot amount rolls down and it is split between the winners of the next category. There's a lottery to play every single day, but the UK EuroMillions is well worth your attention!

Each of the members took home a £6.5 million share. The win could not have come at a better time. Their Christmas shopping certainly looked different after such a windfall.

In 2012, a syndicate of bus drivers from Corby saw their lives changing in the blink of an eye as they won a £38 million jackpot. Each of them cashed a £3.1 million ticket to retirement as none of the winners showed up for work the following day or any other day after that.
