My Million et option Etoile +

My Million, a specificity of each Euromillions draw for France (French Republic and Principality of Monaco), is maintained as it is. It guarantees a saving of 1 million euros in France with each draw. My Million was added to the game in February 2014, to attract players frightened by the very low odds of hitting the jackpot (of the order of a chance on 116 million then 1 sure 139 millions - read below). So there is another way to make money with Euromillions. And this, without having the winning combination of the ball draw !

The principle of My Million is simple : for each validated Euromillion grid, a code is generated (with two letters and seven numbers). Then a draw is made between all the codes generated. In practice, the draw is made among all those who have purchased and validated a Euromillions grid. The lucky owner of the right combination becomes a millionaire by pocketing a million euros. Beyond 10 assigned codes, you will be assigned an interval of consecutive codes. All codes in this interval will be participating.

Etoile + is an option added to the game only in France. Euromillions players have the opportunity to win a sum of money from a lucky star ticked in the grid. To bet on its “good star”, on the other hand, you have to pay 1 euro more at each grid. The cost of the grid is therefore increased to 3,50 euros.

How to play Euromillions

5 numbers and 2 stars : this is what you must tick to hope to win in the Euromillions draws. During the draws, 5 balls are indeed drawn among 50 numbers ; then 2 balls, matching the stars, are drawn among the 12 of the machine (11 before the new formula).

Play at a tobacconist

The name of the FDJ 23 000 points of sale “draw” in France. When you go to a tobacconist, get a game slip. You then have several grids under your eyes. You can fill in one or more. The minimum bet is 2,5 euros for 1 grille simple Euro Millions + 1 My Million code per draw.

In the grid, you must first check (in the form of a cross) 5 numbers among the numbered boxes of 1 at 50. Ensuite, you must check 2 stars among the 12 stars numbered 1 at 12 (11 before the new formula). This is the easiest way to play Euromillions.

However, if you wish it, you can make the game more complex and tick more than 5 numbers or more than 2 stars. You can for example choose 7 numbers, hoping that among these 7 numbers are the 5 “winners”. By doing this, you potentially increase your chances of winning… But in this case, your grid will cost you more than 2,50 euros. Once your grid is filled, give it to the tobacconist who will register your game and give you a game receipt in return. It is this document that you will use to claim your prize if you win.

Using the Flash system : If you don't want to choose specific numbers, you can make a grid “flash”. In that case, you simply tell the tobacconist that you want a Euromillions “flash” and the computer will randomly choose numbers and stars for you. The cost of the grid is the same.
