EuroMillions Plus is a supplementary lottery game that is available to Irish EuroMillions players for an additional fee. The game enters your five main EuroMillions numbers into a draw for the chance to win up to 500,000.
How to Play EuroMillions Plus
To play EuroMillions Plus, you must also buy a ticket for EuroMillions and check Yes on the EuroMillions Plus option on the ticket. The fee for entry into the supplementary game will be added to the total cost of your ticket.
The game uses the same five main numbers as your EuroMillions entry, and when the EuroMillions Plus draw is held five numbers from 1 to 50 will be selected at random. If you match three or more of your numbers with those drawn then you will win a prize, as follows:
|Numbers Matched||Prize Awarded||Odds of Winning|
|5||€500,000||1 in 2,118,760|
|4||€2,000||1 in 9,417|
|3||€20||1 in 214|
All EuroMillions Plus prizes are fixed, so if several players match all five main numbers they would each win 500,000, though if the prize payout limit of 3 million per draw is reached, the amount awarded to each winner would be adjusted.
Making a Claim
EuroMillions Plus prize claims must be made within 90 days of the draw taking place. Anyone who plays this game by purchasing paper tickets should note that the tickets are bearer instruments, meaning that if a ticket is lost and someone else finds it, the person who finds and submits it will be treated as the rightful prize winner. EuroMillions Plus is also available to play online, with winners being notified of any win via email and winnings being paid directly into their account.
Advance Play Option
Players are able to participate in several consecutive EuroMillions Plus draws by taking advantage of an Advance Play option. This involves paying for all of your entries (which must of course include entry into the main EuroMillions draws as well) in advance, and the numbers selected for the first draw will automatically be entered into the subsequent draws.
