EuroMillions Help & FAQ


The EuroMillions is Europe’s biggest and most popular lottery draw. It takes place every Tuesday and Friday night in Paris and you can bet on the outcome of the draw with us for just £2. That’s 50p less than you will pay for a ticket elsewhere.

How does betting on the EuroMillions at Lottoland work?

Instead of entering the official EuroMillions Lotto draw, you place a bet on the outcome of it. You pick the numbers you think will be drawn in the same way as if you had entered the official lottery draw. At Lottoland, you win the same prize money for each prize tier that the official lottery operator offers, including the jackpot, and you receive your prize money as if you had actually played the official lottery.

How do I choose a line and place a bet?

Choose 5 numbers from the main pool of 1–50 and 2 further numbers from 1–12.

You can also select the QuickPick option (Quick+1) and this will choose a line for you randomly. Once you have chosen your numbers, select which draw you want to bet on, either Tuesday or Friday, and press ‘Submit’. This will take you through to a checkout – at this stage just click ‘Confirm and proceed’ to place your bet.

How do I win the Jackpot?

You will win our jackpot if your 5 main numbers and 2 additional numbers are the same as those in the official EuroMillions draw.

Can I win all the same prizes betting on the draw with Lottoland?

You can win all the same main game prizes betting on the draw with us as those available in the official draw, including the jackpot.

How much does it cost?

A single bet costs £2. A bet with the DoubleJackpot feature costs £4. For more on DoubleJackpot please see below.

How much can I win?

The EuroMillions jackpot is capped at €190 million. However, you can select our DoubleJackpot feature for the chance to win twice the official EuroMillions jackpot amount. See below for information on how this feature works.

How does the DoubleJackpot feature work?

The DoubleJackpot feature allows you to bet for twice the official lottery jackpot. So, for instance, if the official EuroMillions Lotto draw is £50m and you bet on the outcome with us and activate the DoubleJackpot feature, you can potentially win £100m. The prizes for all other tiers will remain the same.

You will pay double the price of your normal line to activate the DoubleJackpot feature. So, if you wish to bet on EuroMillions Lotto with the DoubleJackpot feature you’ll pay £4, instead of £2.

When does the draw take place?

The EuroMillions draw takes place every Tuesday and Friday night in Paris at approximately 8pm (GMT).

What is the difference between the EuroMillions and EuroJackpot lotteries?

The EuroJackpot lottery is run by Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia and Spain, with a total population of 130 million inhabitants. The EuroMillions countries have a considerably larger population, at approximately 217 million inhabitants.

From a gameplay perspective, the EuroMillions and EuroJackpot lotteries are similar; both lotteries require you to pick 5 numbers from 50, and 2 supplementary numbers. The supplementary numbers are where the difference becomes clear as you must pick 2 supplementary (Star) numbers from 8 for the EuroJackpot and for the EuroMillions you must pick 2 supplementary numbers from 12.

The prices for the two lotteries are also similar – €2 for the EuroMillions and €2 for EuroJackpot

The EuroJackpot organisers guarantee a weekly minimum jackpot of €10 million, with a maximum jackpot of €90 million. The EuroMillions is much larger in comparison, with a minimum of €15 million available at each of the two weekly draws (i.e. €20 million weekly), with a maximum jackpot size of a whopping €190 million!

The winning numbers for the EuroJackpot are drawn every Friday in Helsinki (Finland), while the EuroMillions has two weekly draws on Tuesdays and Fridays in Paris (France).

What is a syndicate?

A syndicate, in the sense of betting on lotteries, is a group of people that combine their money in order to increase their chances of winning.

With the money that they pool together, they make multiple line bets together on the outcome of a lottery draw and share any prize money won.

The benefit of the Syndicate feature is that it lets you boost your chances of winning, allowing you to buy much more shares of numerous lottery line bets than a player would just making bets by themselves.

How do I place a Syndicate bet?

  1. Select your chosen lottery and then click on the ‘Syndicates’ tab.
  2. Select the syndicate size you wish to place your bet on.
  3. Choose how many shares you want.

How do Syndicates work?

When you go to the syndicates tab, you will see an image similar to the following:

The lines are the amount of lines that you will be betting on in this syndicate. In the case above, 168 lines — or 168 lotto bets — in total will be placed on the next jackpot draw. If any of these numbers result in winning a prize, then the prize money is paid out to you in accordance to the numbers of shares you bought.

The shares are the amount of shares that are available for this syndicate bet. IN the example in the image, 100 shares are available. You can purchase 1, 2 or 5 shares in total for this syndicate. If you buy 1 share of the possible 100, then you will receive 1/100th of the prize and so on.

So, if you select 1 share for a lottery with a jackpot of £100m and one of the lines in the syndicate won the jackpot, you would receive £1 million. If you selected 2 shares you would receive £2m and if you selected 5 shares you would receive £5m. There is also additional information about the syndicate, for example, in the case above, the 168 lines will be placed on the next draw and there is no automatic renewal.

How can I see my syndicate numbers?

When you place your syndicate bet, you can see your numbers by going to “My Account” in the top right hand corner, clicking on “My Activity” and then clicking on “Lotto Bets”.

You will see a bet slip with a combination of numbers. These combination of numbers make up the total amount of lines that you have bought in your syndicate. These are the numbers that you use to check if you have won anything in the lottery draw.

You will also be emailed your lotto syndicate numbers via a confirmation email.
