The Euro Million lotto was in the beginning formulated by the national lotteries of France, Spain and the UK and was unveiled in early February 2004. The inaugural Euro Millions lottery draw occurred on Friday the 13th of February 2004 in Paris. The UK, France and Spain were the only European states participating in the beginning but lotteries from Austria, Belgium, the Republic of Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland also became involved in October 2004.
The EuroMillions or the Euro lottery, as it is often known, pools the ticket revenues of the nine participating European countries presenting a considerable EuroMillions lotto jackpot. With the number of nations joining the EU on the increase, this will undoubtedly lead to new states registering with the Euro Millions lottery. An increase in the quantity of people participating in the EuroMillions will lead to a continuing increase of the already sizable EuroMillions jackpots.
How To Play The Euro Millions Lotto
Each participant is required to pick 5 main numbers from 1 to 50 and 2 “Lucky Star” numbers from 1 to 9. During the draw, 5 main and 2 lucky star numbers are then chosen at random from two draw machines containing numbered balls.
EuroMillions Prizes And Odds
The likelihood of winning the EuroMillions lotto jackpot is a distant 1 in 76 million but the odds of winning a cash prize is a generous 1 in 24. If the jackpot is not won in a given week, it is carried forward to the following week which leads to an ever growing EuroMillions prize fund. New rules introduced during February 2007 limit the amount of consecutive “rollovers” to eleven, with the jackpot rolling down to lower prize levels in the eleventh draw if the prize is not won.
The new rules also established Euro lotto “Super Draws” which happen twice each year and present jackpots in the region of £100 million. The difference with “Super Draws” is that the jackpot must be won in the week of that draw; as a result, if there is no ticket matching all the drawn numbers then the jackpot will be rolled down to the next winning prize tier.
Notable Euro Millions Wins
• On the 8th of February 2008, the “Super Draw” jackpot of €130 million was collected by 16 individuals who matched the 5 main numbers and 1 “Lucky Star” number.
• On 10 August 2007, a forty year old former Royal Mail postal officer from Scotland collected a EuroMillions jackpot of €52.6 million. Up to now, this is the largest lottery win ever in the UK.
• In November 2006, having rolled over eleven times, the EuroMillions jackpot arrived at €183 million and was divided among twenty blessed ticket holders.
Different Playing Methods
Typically, to partake in the Euro Millions lotto you would have to be a resident of one of the nine participating member states. However, with the introduction of lottery ticket sales agents you can now purchase your requisite amount of Euro Millions tickets online regardless of where you are located worldwide. If you are looking for a boost in your lottery winning odds, you may want to reflect on signing up to an e-Lottery Euro Millions syndicate.
