How to Claim a EuroMillions Prize
The way in which you claim a EuroMillions prize depends on the amount you won and whether the entry was purchased online or in-store. This guide sets out the options available to winners.
The deadline for claiming any EuroMillions prize in Switzerland is 26 weeks after the draw has taken place.
- Prizes up to CHF 1,000 – Any prize of this value will be paid automatically into your online account shortly after the draw has taken place.
- Prizes of CHF 1,000 and above – Your prize will be paid automatically into the bank account linked to your online account.
From a Retailer
There are two operators of EuroMillions in Switzerland. Swisslos oversees the game in the German-speaking cantons and the canton of Ticino, while Loterie Romande runs EuroMillions in the French-speaking cantons.
You must claim any prizes you win from the same territory where you bought your ticket. For example, if you purchased your entry from a Swisslos retailer, you must also claim your prize from a Swisslos retailer.
- Prizes up to CHF 1,000 – You can claim your prize by taking your winning ticket to an official lottery retailer. If the retailer does not have sufficient funds available, you may have to make an appointment to return at a later date.
- Prizes over CHF 1,000 - You must claim prizes above CHF 1,000 from the relevant head office. For prizes above CHF 25,000, you will need to provide proof of identification.
Swisslos has its headquarters at the following location:Swisslos
Lange Gasse 20
The headquarters of Loterie Romande are located at the following address:Loterie Romande

Tax on Prizes
If you win a prize of more than CHF 1 million in Switzerland, it will be subject to tax at a rate of 35 percent.
Purchased a ticket from another country?
You must claim any EuroMillions prize you win in the same country where you purchased your ticket. If you bought your ticket somewhere other than Switzerland, you can select the relevant country from the options in the top-right of the screen to see instructions on how to claim.
