Euromillions Odds



Odds of winning Euromillions

To win the Euromillions jackpot prize, players need to match 5 main numbers from 50, and 2 lucky stars from 11. The Euromillions odds of this actually happening is approximately 116,531,800 to 1. Although the odds of winning the Euromillions lottery may appear very slim, these odds (116,531,800 to 1) actually refer to the odds of winning the Euromillions jackpot in one particular draw. In addition, the Euromillions lottery features 13 different tiers thus, the odds of a Euromillions win is approximately 1 in 13.

Finally, and more encouragingly, the more than generous Euromillions jackpot prizes can reach as much as €190 million with a guaranteed jackpot of at least €15 million (£12 million) per draw. In the absence of a first prize winner, the money is rolled over to the next draw which will grow in successive categories until either a Euromillions jackpot winner is produced, or the Euromillions Pool Cap (190 million euro) is reached.

The typical 13 Euromillions payouts levels and their corresponding odds are displayed in the following table:
