Remember, the only way to officially buy a ticket is via these official websites. But you have to be a legal resident of the country and have a national ID and bank account. You can also use 3rd party reseller websites but you have to be careful who to trust.
Sites like www.euro-millions.com or www.euromillions.com are absolutely NOT OFFICIAL WEBSITES and are making money purely by reselling lottery tickets via overpriced 3rd party websites.
How do you win prizes?
To win a EuroMillions HotPicks prize, all the numbers you choose must be drawn among the winning numbers. For example, if you play Pick 3, you only win if all three of your numbers are drawn. You don’t win a prize for matching one or two numbers in Pick 3.
Is the £1 million split if there’s more than one winner?
All the prizes are fixed so you receive the advertised amount even if there is more than one winner. However, there is a maximum prize fund in place for each game and in exceptional circumstances it may be that winners receive a share of this prize fund rather than the advertised prize. Go to the EuroMillions HotPicks Prizes page for more information.
What are the odds of winning?
The odds are different for each of the five games. The chances of winning Pick 1, for example, are 1 in 10, while the chances of winning Pick 5 are 1 in 2,118,760. See the Odds page to learn more.
How long do you have to claim prizes?
The claim deadline for EuroMillions HotPicks prizes is 180 days from the date of the draw. If you do not come forward in time, the money will be transferred to the Good Causes Fund. Visit the Claiming Prizes page for more on how to receive your winnings.
