How to Play
How do you play EuroMillions?
To play EuroMillions, you must select five main numbers from 1 to 50 and two Lucky Star numbers between 1 and 12. You can buy tickets from authorised retailers in any of the nine participating countries, or enter online. View the How to Play EuroMillions page for a step-by-step guide to taking part.
What is the cut-off time for ticket sales?
Ticket sales close at 7:30pm UK time on the night of a draw. Sales remain closed until the draw has taken place, reopening shortly after for the next draw.
Can you enter more than one draw in advance?
You can buy tickets for up to four weeks in advance, entering either the Tuesday draw each week, the Friday draw, or both. It is therefore possible to enter your numbers into eight consecutive draws by playing every Tuesday and Friday for four weeks. You can also sign up to play continuously by direct debit.
Can the same number appear as a main number and a Lucky Star?
Yes, the Lucky Stars are drawn from a separate pool of 12 numbers. You can therefore select the same number(s) as a Lucky Star and a main ball.
How much does it cost to play?
The cost of a single EuroMillions play in the UK is £2.50. This price also enters you automatically into the Millionaire Maker.
Can you play EuroMillions if you don’t live in a participating country?
EuroMillions tickets are available from retailers in Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland, as well as the UK. However, the game can also be played online in other countries thanks to online concierge and betting services. Go to the Tickets page to take part.
Predicting the Outcome of the EuroMillions Draw
You have to understand that probability theory is simply a reliable guide. Naturally, the expected frequency and the actual frequency will not always match exactly.
You use probability to predict the future outcome of the game to guide you on how to play your game.
For example, if we want to know in advance the outcome of EuroMillions after 2000 draws, we use the same formula for expected frequency:
If we are to predict the outcome of all the odd-even patterns, we will come up with the following prediction table below:
|Pattern||Probability||Estimated Occurrence in 2000 draws|
As a smart EuroMillions player, you don’t want to waste your money on patterns with low probability. That is the power of probability calculation as we apply it in EuroMillions.
As a lotto player, you want to win the jackpot. Therefore, you should stick with either 3-odd-2-even or 2-odd-3-even and forget about the rest of the patterns.
You get the same idea when it comes to low-high patterns. You don’t want to pick a combination whose composition is purely low numbers or strictly high numbers.
However, EuroMillions is not only about low-high or odd-even patterns.
We discuss low-high and odd-even patterns to show that the lottery can be predicted to an extent. But the low-high and odd-even patterns don’t provide the whole picture of the EuroMillions game.
You must understand the EuroMillions game as a whole if you want to win the game. For you to achieve that, you have to understand intricate combinatorial patterns, which is the real key to EuroMillions’ success.
Let’s proceed to discuss what advanced patterns can do to level up your lotto playing strategy.
