EuroMillions Exceptional Jackpots
Offering prize money of over €100 million (usually €130 million), EuroMillions Exceptional Jackpot draws take place on occasions throughout the year to give players in all participating countries the chance at winning exciting nine-figure jackpots.
Exceptional Jackpots are usually announced several weeks before the draw is due to take place, and the advertised jackpot amount will be guaranteed, regardless of what the top prize was in the previous draw. Tens of millions of euros can therefore be added on to the value of the jackpot in the space of a single draw.
When is the next Exceptional Jackpot draw?
The date of the next EuroMillions Exceptional Jackpot draw has not yet been announced.
When was the last Exceptional Jackpot draw?
The last Exceptional Jackpot draw took place on Friday 7th June 2019 with a guaranteed minimum jackpot of €130 million. There were no jackpot winners on the night, which meant that the top prize rolled over to the following draw, where it was won by a single ticket holder from the UK.
How it works
Exceptional Jackpots work in the same way as a standard EuroMillions draw - you select five numbers from 1-50 and two Lucky Stars from 1-12. Tickets cost €2.50 per line and you still receive a My Bonus entry for every line of numbers you purchase.
The funds for an Exceptional Jackpot draw come from the EuroMillions Reserve Fund, which takes 4.8% of the Common Prize Fund in all regular EuroMillions draws. This fund can also be used for other promotional purposes, such as Special Millionaires draws and the value of prizes in any category.
