Simple and multiple Euromillions bets
In Euromillions, as in many others lottery games, you can play simple bets or multiples.
A simple bet requires that your ticket has 5 numbers and 2 stars selected. On the contrary in a multiple bet you can select up to 10 numbers and up to 6 lucky stars.
Playing a multiple bet multiplies your chances of winning, and at the same time increases the cost of the ticket.
The following table shows how many bets you’re playing per ticket depending on how many numbers and/or stars you have selected.

When is Euromillions drawn?

Currently the Euromillions have a minimum guaranteed jackpot of €17.000.000, if there are no winners of 5 numbers and 2 stars, the jackpot rollover until reaching the maximum cap of €190.000.000.
But at the beginning it was not like that. Initially, in 2004, there was a cap of 11 rollovers but there was not a cap on the amount of money. If in the twelfth draw there was no winners, the main prize would be distributed between the second prize category winners.
In 2009, the rollover rule was replaced for a maximum jackpot cap rule. The new jackpot cap was set up at €185.000.000, and when reached for the first time it still can be increased for €5 million more.
Finally, in September 2016, the current jackpot cap was introduced and fixed it at €190.000.000. If after 4 draws there are no winners of first category, on the fifth one this amount will be distributed between the winners of the second category.
