Important Notes

EuroMillions is one of the biggest lottery games in the world, with participants in Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.

Although the basic rules are the same in all countries, some of the game's minor rules do vary. For example, EuroMillions players in the United Kingdom have up to 180 days after the draw to make a claim, while players in France only have up to 60 days. It is therefore important to make yourself aware of the EuroMillions rules in your own country, rather than simply assuming that they are the same as those in another participating nation.

We advise all EuroMillions players to carry out the following checks to ensure they are familiar with the most important rules, and we will illustrate these with the actual rules for UK players:

1 – Check You Can Play
EuroMillions – like any other lottery – is a gambling game, and can therefore only be played by those who are of a legal age. In the United Kingdom, players must be aged 16 or over. In the event that an under-age player purchases a ticket and wins a prize, this prize will not be paid out.

2 – Check The Error Rules
All EuroMillions players should check their tickets as soon as they have been issued in order to make sure that the correct numbers or draw has been selected. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to do this (especially in a rollover queue), so the lottery operators usually allow a short period of grace in which you can report an error and get a replacement ticket. In the UK, players must return an erroneous, illegible or incomplete ticket to the lottery terminal from which it was purchased within 120 minutes of it being issued; however, this rule does not apply if the ticket deadline has passed.

3 – Check The Claim Rules
The claims procedure for prizes of different levels will vary from nation to nation, so make sure that you understand what you need to do in order to claim the various prizes on offer. For example, in the UK prizes of less than £500 can be claimed at many normal lottery outlets, while prizes over £500 require the completion of a claims form. Prizes of £50,000 or more must be claimed in person from a designated national lottery office. Being aware of how to claim your prize will enable you to collect your money without delay.

Checking the EuroMillions rules that apply to your particular country doesn’t take long and it could save you a lot of time and potential disappointment, so make sure you heed these important notes for EuroMillions players!
