EuroMillions is one of the biggest lottery games in the world, with no less than nine European countries participating. The EuroMillions draw itself takes place every Tuesday and Friday and the game boasts a minimum jackpot of €15 million.
The EuroMillions Lottery was launched on Friday 13 February, 2004 by three founding nations – France, Spain and the United Kingdom. Within a matter of months another six EuroMillions countries got involved, namely Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Switzerland. The EuroMillions Lottery matrix changed on 10 May 2011, from a 5/50 and 2/9 to a 5/50 and 2/11, along with the addition of a new prize tier, the Match 2.
The EuroMillions game itself is easy to play. EuroMillions Participants need to select five numbers from the range 1 to 50 and two supplementary numbers (referred to as Lucky Stars) from the range 1 to 11. EuroMillions Players have to match all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars to win the jackpot.

The odds of winning the EuroMillions jackpot are 1 in 116,531,800, so it sometimes happens that nobody wins it outright. In that event the EuroMillions jackpot is rolled over and added to the jackpot fund for the next EuroMillions draw.
This rollover principle has created some staggering EuroMillions Jackpots in the past, and the biggest Euro Lottery jackpot of all was €190 million, a sum created after the jackpot was not reached following 14 consecutive rollovers. This happened for two draws running in August 2012 and was not won in the first draw. Following rules implemented in February 2012 that set a Jackpot Pool Cap the amount for a match 5 main and 2 Lucky Stars could not go above €190 million. For the first draw there were 7 winners who matched 5 main and 1 Lucky Star and these players each took home over £1.7/€2.3 million. On the second draw Adrian and Gillian Bayford matched 5 main numbers and 2 Lucky Stars to win the €190 million, netting a jackpot of just over £148 million. However, the biggest Sterling EuroMillions jackpot win happened in July 2011 when Colin and Chris Weir matched the five plus two combination drawn to win £161 million (€185 million).
