The EuroMillions lottery

The EuroMillions lottery game was given the go-ahead in February 2004, and since then it has continued to experience a phenomenal growth, both in lottery jackpots and the amount of players who are keen on taking part in this amazing lottery. While it was initially only available to certain European countries, thanks to an emergence in online lottery service websites such as, it is now possible for anybody with an internet connection to participate in this lottery game.

All the major European countries collectively make up the EuroMillions lottery jackpot prize fund; with Austria, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom all contributing to the game it’s little wonder that the lottery can afford to host what’s known as the “EuroMillions Super Draw” on a few occasions throughout the year. The unique attribute that sets this Super Draw apart from all others, is its €100 million guaranteed jackpot prize. What causes additional excitement and inadvertent pressure for players to take home the Super Draw jackpot, is that if the prize is not won within the first week of the Super Draw being held, then it automatically forfeits itself as the draw’s main prize, and instead gets filtered down to the lower prize tier winners. This ensures that everybody has a fair shot at becoming a millionaire.

Although you may be faced with what appears to be highly intimidating odds of winning the EuroMillions jackpot ( 1 in 116,531,800), the game actually has 13 prize tiers – so realistically, players have a 1 in 13 chance of walking away with a prize.
