Why Prizes Differ Between Currencies

The Euro is the base currency for EuroMillions as it is used by seven of the nine participating countries. When a jackpot is won in the UK the equivalent figure in pounds is paid out, based on the exchange rate on the day of the draw.

For non-jackpot prizes, the amount you receive in the UK is not worked out purely on the basis of the exchange rate. Instead, a formula is in place to take into account each country’s contribution to the game.

Each country that participates in EuroMillions contributes €1.10 into the Common Prize Fund, which is used to pay out prizes to all winners. Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund is the 50% of £1.74 from every EuroMillions ticket sold.

If, using the exchange rates on the day of a draw, Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund works out at less than €1.10, prizes paid out to UK players will be reduced to compensate for the shortfall. If, on the other hand, Camelot’s contribution amounts to more than €1.10, UK winners will receive comparatively bigger prizes than winners in other countries.

To put it simply, if £1.74 is worth less than €2.20, UK winners will receive smaller prizes than those in other countries. If £1.74 is worth more than €2.20, UK players will receive more. These rules ensure that prizes are always in line with how much each participating country contributes to the Common Prize Fund.

September 2016 – EuroMillions Overhaul

September 2016 saw sweeping changes made to the EuroMillions format, including the introduction of new supplementary games in six countries and a €2 million increase to the minimum jackpot. The price of entry was increased as follows:

Austria €2.00 €2.20
Belgium €2.00 €2.50
Ireland €2.00 €2.50
Luxembourg €2.00 €2.50
Portugal €2.00 €2.50
Spain €2.00 €2.50
Switzerland CHF3.00 CHF3.50
UK £2.00 £2.50

The price change covered the cost of new raffles and supplementary games implemented across Europe. With the new games came the introduction of a Europe-wide raffle event, the European Millionaire Maker. The first European Millionaire Maker raffle took place on Friday 28th October 2016, with 25 winning codes selected.

Another big change was the introduction to the game of a 12th Lucky Star; the odds of winning in each prize tier changed as a result:

Match 5 + 2 Stars 1 in 116,531,800 1 in 139,838,160
Match 5 + 1 Star 1 in 6,473,989 1 in 6,991,908
Match 5 1 in 3,236,995 1 in 3,107,515
Match 4 + 2 Stars 1 in 517,920 1 in 621,503
Match 4 + 1 Star 1 in 28,774 1 in 31,076
Match 3 + 2 Stars 1 in 11,771 1 in 14,126
Match 4 1 in 14,387 1 in 13,812
Match 2 + 2 Stars 1 in 882 1 in 986
Match 3 + 1 Star 1 in 654 1 in 707
Match 3 1 in 327 1 in 314
Match 1 + 2 Stars 1 in 157 1 in 188
Match 2 + 1 Stars 1 in 46 1 in 50
Match 2 1 in 23 1 in 22
The overall odds of winning a prize remained at 1 in 13.

The UK’s popular ‘Mega Friday’ promotional draw — which saw multiple £1 million raffle prizes and luxury non-cash prizes awarded on the last Friday of each month – also saw a major change. The event was expanded to offer prizes in two consecutive draws and was renamed ‘Mega Week’.

All changes came into effect as of Saturday 24th September 2016, with the very first Mega Week beginning on Tuesday 27th September. Ten raffle prizes of £1 million plus a 100-day round-the-world trip were given out, and a special €130 million Superdraw took place on Friday 30th September. Mega Week ran for nine months, with the last Mega Week draws taking place on Tuesday 25th and Friday 28th June 2017.

Changes Summary (General)

  • Minimum jackpot increased from €15 million to €17 million
  • European Millionaire Maker raffle introduced
  • Ticket price increased in all participating countries
  • The number of draws in which the jackpot could stay at its cap before triggering a rolldown increased from two to five
  • Number of Lucky Stars increased from 11 to 12, resulting in a change to the odds of winning individual prizes

Changes Summary (UK)

  • UK Mega Friday transformed into Mega Week, an occasional event that offered multiple Millionaire Maker prizes, and non-cash prizes including luxury holidays
  • Number of UK Millionaire Maker prizes offered per draw increased from one to two. The chances of winning improved from 1 in 4.8 million to 1 in 1.9 million for a Tuesday draw, and from 1 in 7.5 million to 1 in 2.95 million for a Friday draw

Changes Summary (Rest of Europe)

  • ‘Ireland Only Raffle’ supplementary game introduced to Ireland, offering ten €5,000 prizes every draw
  • ‘El Millón’ supplementary raffle introduced to Spain, offering a €1 million prize every Friday
  • ‘My Bonus’ supplementary raffle introduced to Belgium, offering 600 prizes of €500 and one prize worth €1 million every week

January 2012 – Change to Jackpot Cap

On 12th January 2012, the EuroMillions jackpot cap was frozen at €190 million. Previous rules set in 2009 stated that each time the jackpot cap was reached, it would be increased by €5 million. The last cap increase had taken place in July 2011, when Scottish couple Colin and Chris Weir won a capped €185 million (£161.6 million) jackpot – the largest lottery prize ever won in the UK at the time.

A second rule was changed alongside the jackpot cap; the top prize could remain at its maximum size for two draws, instead of one draw, before being rolled down to the next prize tier.

Changes Summary

  • Jackpot cap increase rule scrapped; jackpot cap frozen at €190 million
  • Jackpot roll-down deadline increased from one draw after reaching cap to two draws after reaching cap

Prize Amounts and Statistics

Here is how the EuroMillions prize fund is distributed across each of the 13 prize tiers. The table also shows statistics for the highest and lowest amount ever given away in each category, along with the highest and lowest number of winners in each tier.

Figures calculated using results drawn between 27/09/2016 and 10/11/2020.

This column displays the percentage of the prize fund allocated to each prize level. The remaining 10% goes into a separate fund, known as the Booster Fund, which is used to ensure there is always enough for the advertised minimum jackpot of €17 million. EuroMillions occasionally holds special draws or promotions, where the guaranteed minimum jackpot can be increased up to as much as €130 million, using surplus funds from the Booster Fund.

The 50% allocated to the jackpot only applies for the first five draws in a series of rollovers. Once the top prize has rolled over five times in a row, the ‘Match 5 + 2’ allocation is adjusted down to 42% until the jackpot gets won. The remaining 8% goes to the Booster Fund, ensuring that this reserve pot receives 18% of funds from the sixth draw in a rollover series until the jackpot is won.

The lowest and highest prize amounts for each prize tier, other than the jackpot, are in respect of individual winning tickets.
The Match 5 + 2 Lucky Stars prize values represent the total jackpot amounts regardless of how many winning tickets there were.

All prize data included in the table above relates to EuroMillions lottery draw results since 27th September 2016 when the Lucky Star pool increased from 11 numbers to 12. The details provided are for information purposes only and are not indicative of future prize values.

Predicting the Outcome of the EuroMillions Draw

You have to understand that probability theory is simply a reliable guide.  Naturally, the expected frequency and the actual frequency will not always match exactly.

You use probability to predict the future outcome of the game to guide you on how to play your game.

For example, if we want to know in advance the outcome of EuroMillions after 2000 draws, we use the same formula for expected frequency:

If we are to predict the outcome of all the odd-even patterns, we will come up with the following prediction table below:

Pattern Probability Estimated Occurrence in 2000 draws
3-odd-2-even 0.3256621797655230 651 times
2-odd-3-even 0.3256621797655230 651 times
4-odd-1-even 0.1492618323925310 299 times
4-even-1-odd 0.1492618323925310 299 times
All-odd 0.0250759878419453 50 times

As a smart EuroMillions player, you don’t want to waste your money on patterns with low probability. That is the power of probability calculation as we apply it in EuroMillions.

As a lotto player, you want to win the jackpot. Therefore, you should stick with either 3-odd-2-even or 2-odd-3-even and forget about the rest of the patterns.

You get the same idea when it comes to low-high patterns.  You don’t want to pick a combination whose composition is purely low numbers or strictly high numbers.

However, EuroMillions is not only about low-high or odd-even patterns.

We discuss low-high and odd-even patterns to show that the lottery can be predicted to an extent.  But the low-high and odd-even patterns don’t provide the whole picture of the EuroMillions game.

You must understand the EuroMillions game as a whole if you want to win the game.  For you to achieve that, you have to understand intricate combinatorial patterns, which is the real key to EuroMillions’ success.

Let’s proceed to discuss what advanced patterns can do to level up your lotto playing strategy.

FAQs

Some of the most frequently asked questions and answers regarding EuroMillions Plus are shown below. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Q: Does the Match 5 top prize roll over if there are no winners?
A: No, all prizes amounts are fixed and cannot roll over.

Q: Where are the Plus numbers on my EuroMillions ticket?
A: The five main numbers you enter in the main EuroMillions draw are also used as your EuroMillions Plus numbers. Your ticket will have ‘PLUS YES’ printed on to confirm that your numbers have been entered into both draws.

Q: When do ticket sales close?
A: If you are playing online, entries close at 7:25pm every Tuesday and Friday. If you’re playing instore, it’s 7:30pm.

Q: Are the Plus results the same as the EuroMillions results?
A: No, EuroMillions Plus is a separate draw to EuroMillions and therefore has different winning numbers — however your chosen EuroMillions numbers are entered into both games when Plus is played.

Combinatorial Patterns in EuroMillions

Let me describe a mathematical method that will catapult you to Euro Million’s success.  Deep within the finite sets of EuroMillions numbers are combinatorial patterns that should tell you the best combinations to play and the worst ones to avoid.

The image above describes the complete randomness of a lottery game. It shows that the lotteries are made up of independent random draws that, when put together with time, exhibit a mathematically deterministic behavior given the law of large numbers. See The Visual Analysis of a True Random Lottery with Deterministic Outcome

Let me clarify that we don’t need statistics to determine the best combinations in a lottery game.  Statistics is not the right tool to analyze a lottery game.

So if statistical analysis will not provide the best clue, what will?

Well, since the lottery has a finite structure, any question that we ask is a combinatorial and probability problem to solve rather than statistical.

So instead of statistics, we need the concept of combinatorics and probability theory.   These two mathematical tools will help predict the general outcome of the EuroMillions game from the perspective of the law of large numbers.

This prediction is possible because a truly random lottery follows the dictate of probability.

Again, we can explain this better from the context of combinatorial patterns.

For example, we can ask:

“What is the probability that the next winning numbers will be 1-2-3-4-5?”

To solve this question combinatorially, we can rephrase the question this way:

“What is the probability that the next winning numbers will be three-odds and two-even numbers?”

Can you see it? Composition matters.

And the composition of a combination is best described using a combinatorial pattern.  You can look at combinatorial patterns in many different ways.  There are simple patterns and there are Lotterycodex patterns.

We will talk about Lotterycodex patterns later (you don’t want to miss this section).

Let’s discuss the simple ones first.
