The EuroMillions Jackpot Cap

The EuroMillions jackpot has a cap of €190 million, which means that once the jackpot reaches this amount, it can no longer increase in size. Instead, any extra funds that would normally push the jackpot up for the following draw are rolled down to the next winning prize tier(s).

Current Rules

In September 2016, a number of new rules for EuroMillions were introduced, one of which was an increase in the number of draws at which the jackpot could stay capped. Currently, the jackpot can stay at €190 million for five draws before it must be won. While the top prize is capped, any excess funds that would normally be added to it are rolled down and allocated to prizes in the next highest tier with winning players.

The jackpot has reached its cap three times:
