Figures calculated using results drawn between 27/09/2016 and 10/11/2020.

This column displays the percentage of the prize fund allocated to each prize level. The remaining 10% goes into a separate fund, known as the Booster Fund, which is used to ensure there is always enough for the advertised minimum jackpot of €17 million. EuroMillions occasionally holds special draws or promotions, where the guaranteed minimum jackpot can be increased up to as much as €130 million, using surplus funds from the Booster Fund.

The 50% allocated to the jackpot only applies for the first five draws in a series of rollovers. Once the top prize has rolled over five times in a row, the ‘Match 5 + 2’ allocation is adjusted down to 42% until the jackpot gets won. The remaining 8% goes to the Booster Fund, ensuring that this reserve pot receives 18% of funds from the sixth draw in a rollover series until the jackpot is won.

The lowest and highest prize amounts for each prize tier, other than the jackpot, are in respect of individual winning tickets.
The Match 5 + 2 Lucky Stars prize values represent the total jackpot amounts regardless of how many winning tickets there were.

All prize data included in the table above relates to EuroMillions lottery draw results since 27th September 2016 when the Lucky Star pool increased from 11 numbers to 12. The details provided are for information purposes only and are not indicative of future prize values.

November 2009 – Changes to EuroMillions Format

On 7th November 2009, EuroMillions’ 11-rollover limit was replaced by a jackpot cap of €185 million. In the event of the jackpot reaching €185 million, it would remain there for one additional draw before being rolled down to winners in the next prize tier. Additionally, the jackpot cap would be increased by €5 million once reached.

The price of a EuroMillions ticket also increased from £1.50 to £2. The price increase heralded the launch of a new supplementary raffle game, ‘Millionaire Raffle’, on 13th November. Included in the EuroMillions ticket’s new price, UK players would get the chance to win a guaranteed €1 million every week by matching the raffle code printed on their ticket with the code revealed during a EuroMillions draw.

Changes Summary

  • Rollover cap replaced by €185 million jackpot cap, increased by €5 million each time it is reached
  • New supplementary ‘Millionaire Raffle’ introduced in the UK
  • Ticket price increased from £1.50 to £2.

Knowing the Best and the Worst Combination Should Help

Getting the right composition will surely give you the best shot possible at winning the EuroMillions.  Of course, you don’t win any money by matching the pattern.  But as a lotto player, you want to play with a sensible strategy and get closer to the winning numbers.

Lotterycodex has no power to change the underlying probability.  But Lotterycodex can calculate all the possible choices so you can make the right choice.

The lottery should be fun.  But at least be sensible when choosing your combinations and don’t waste your money on worthless combinations.

You don’t increase your chance of winning by choosing the right composition.  But when you play the Euromillions, you want to play with the best ratio of success to failure.  So don’t waste your money on useless combinations.  Lotterycodex patterns are here to guide you on that aspect. (Check out the Lotterycodex Calculators)

I encourage you to check the free guide to learn more about how we calculate everything.  Lotterycodex is the only lottery calculator that combines combinatorics and probability calculation in one system.

If you are playing blindly, there’s no guarantee you are not falling into one of these worst patterns in EuroMillions. So I propose that you should incorporate the use of probability theory in your playing strategy.

The benefits are apparent.  First, you are confident that you are not wasting your money, and second, you get the best shot at winning the game.

The difference between the best and the worst is so huge. You don’t want to take it for granted.

We don’t say that those combinations under the worst group will not occur.  We say that those combinations have the worst ratio of success to failure.

Lotterycodex Patterns and The Best Combinations In EuroMillions

Earlier, we discussed that any questions you ask about the lottery must be a combinatorial and probability problem to solve.

So to know the probability of 1-2-3-4-5, we ask the question “What is the probability of a combination composed of three-odds and two-even numbers?”

However, this is not the only question we can ask, we can also ask:

“What is the probability of a combination composed of five low numbers?”

The problem though, two different questions may provide different probability results.

When you deal with low-high and odd-even patterns as two separate probability analyses, you will encounter serious contradiction.

To illustrate the contradiction, 1-2-3-4-5 is one of the best combinations under odd-even patterns.

But then we know that under the analysis of the low-high patterns, such combination is one of the worst ones.

So combinatorial mathematics and probability theory can be very confusing if you are not careful.

So what is the solution?

The solution is Lotterycodex patterns

Using Lotterycodex patterns, we put these two analyses together into one combinatorial equation. 

So now to solve the probability of the combination 1-2-3-4-5, we ask this question instead:

“What is the probability of a combination composed of three-low-odds and two-low-even numbers?”

That’s how Lotterycodex patterns can help you along the way.  However, combinatorial calculation with probability analysis can be very complex so I created the Lotterycodex calculator to make everything much simpler and faster.

For simplicity, I have divided EuroMillions patterns into three groups.

Best Group Middle Group Worst Group
Patterns #1, #2 Patterns #3 to #28 Patterns #29 to #56
Two patterns 26 patterns 28 patterns

As you notice, there are only two best patterns out of 56 patterns in EuroMillions 5/50 game.

For those of you who want to delve deeper into the nitty-gritty aspect of calculation, I don’t hide the formula. I discuss how these patterns are obtained in detail, so I invite you to check the free guide.

The table above is very straightforward.  If you want to win the EuroMillions, then focus on patterns #1 and #2.  And forget about the rest of the patterns.

The problem, almost 90% of the lotto players, do not know the worst combinations that will put their money down the drain.  For example, many people pick their combinations that belong to the worst group.

There are millions of these worst combinations in EuroMillions.  How do you know your combinations are not one of these worst types?

The Huge Difference Between Odds and Probability

Odds and probability are two different terms with two different equations.  The difference between the two can be best describe when we study the composition of combinations. 

As a lotto player, you don’t have the power to change the underlying probability and you cannot beat the odds of the Euromillions game.  But you have the power to know all the possible choices and make the right decision based on those choices.

And making the right choice is possible when you know the difference between odds and probability.

What is the difference?

Probability refers to the measurement that an event will likely occur.  And we measure the likelihood by using the formula:

We normally expressed the results of this formula in percentage.

Now, to get the odds, we use this formula instead:

What you get from this formula is a ratio.

So the difference is that the probability is the measurement of chance while the odds are the ratio of success to failure.

In layman’s term, the difference between odds and probability can be described in the following way:

Probability = Chance

Odds = Advantage

That is, you cannot control the probability and you cannot beat the odds, but at least you can choose the best odds and get the best ratio of success to failure.

Let’s consider the combination 2-4-6-8-10. This combination is composed of 5 even numbers with no odd numbers. This combination belongs to the 0-odd-5-even group.

In the Euromillions game, there are 53,130 ways you can combine 5 numbers that are all even numbers and no odd numbers.

Therefore we calculate the odds of a 0-odd-5-even in the following way:

Odds of 5-even-0-odd = 53,130 / 2,065,630

This means that 2-4-6-8-10 and all similar combinations under the group of 0-odd-5-even will give you 2 or 3 opportunities to match the winning combinations for every 100 attempts that you play the Euromillions game.

As you can see, a combination such as 2-4-6-8-10 offers a very low ratio of success.

In comparison, you will have a better ratio of success when you pick a more balanced odd and even numbers.

Let’s prove that.

There are 690,000 ways you can combine numbers of type 3-odd-2-even. If we calculate the odds, we get:

Odds of 3-odd-2-even = 690,000 / 1,428,760

In simple terms, a 3-odd-2-even combination will give you the opportunity to match the winning numbers 32 to 33 times in every 100 attempts that you play the Euromillions game.

If we compare the two classes of combinations, we can see a big difference:

0-odd-5-even VS 3-odd-2-even

0-odd-5-even 3-odd-2-even
2 to 3 opportunities to match the winning numbers in every 100 draws 32 to 33 opportunities to match the winning numbers in every 100 draws
The worst ratio of success The best ratio of success
The worst choice An intelligent choice

In a random event like the Euromillions game, making an intelligent choice requires mathematical strategy.  We calculate all the possible choices and finally make an intelligent choice.

Remember this: As a EuroMillions player, your objective is to get a better ratio of success to failure. Know all the possible choices and make an intelligent choice.

I explained the details of this mathematical strategy in my article The Lottery and the Winning Formula of Combinatorial Math and Probability Theory.

But to give you a gist of how to make an intelligent choice, let’s dig deeper through these combinatorial patterns below.

How to Play

Playing EuroMillions Plus is very similar to playing EuroMillions, but without the Lucky Stars. For an additional €1 per line, you can opt in to the Plus game when you purchase your main EuroMillions entries for the Tuesday draw, Friday draw, or both.

To add Plus to your ticket, you will need to select your EuroMillions numbers as usual and then tick the ‘Add EuroMillions Plus’ box located on the play slip. You will not need to pick any additional numbers, as those on your ticket are entered into both draws (with the exception of the Lucky Stars).

Five numbers are randomly drawn, with prizes awarded if your original EuroMillions numbers match three or more of the five ’Plus’ numbers drawn.

Prizes

There are three prize tiers available, with a guaranteed top prize of €500,000 for matching all five numbers.

Prize Tier Prize
Match 5 €500,000
Match 4 €2,000
Match 3 €20

Advance Play

The Advance Play option allows you to purchase your tickets up to eight draws in advance by simply ticking the Advance Play box for the number of draws you wish to participate in (e.g. one, two, four, six or eight). Any prizes won from an Advance Play ticket are claimed in the usual way.

February 2020 — Changes to the Jackpot Cap

On 1st February 2020 a number of changes were made to EuroMillions and the jackpots on offer. The changes were implemented to help jackpots grow bigger and faster than under previous game rules, without an increase in ticket price or the number of balls to choose from. In addition, the new prize structure meant that the average number of Superdraws taking place each year would increase.

The Jackpot Cap, which stood at €190 million since January 2012, increased to €200 million, with the potential of climbing further to €250 million in future. Read more about the EuroMillions jackpot cap changes from February 2020.

How To Win The EuroMillions Game

To play the EuroMillions with the best shot possible, pick your numbers based on pattern #1 or #2.  Please check the free guide and discover how Lotterycodex Patterns work for EuroMillions and other lottery games.

It’s not easy to win the EuroMillions.  But you can do something to make sure your bet is a good one.  With lots of superstitions going around the lottery today, a lot of EuroMillions players are doing it all wrong. Don’t be one of them.  Be ahead of them.  Please read my post on how to win the lottery mathematically.

If you hate math, then you can use the Lotterycodex calculator to avoid manual calculation.  The calculator is a superior type of lotto number generator that is based on combinatorics and probability principle.

But remember, the lottery is just entertainment. Please understand that lottery addiction can affect your life negatively in many ways.  You have to play with the proper attitude and with a lottery game plan. Please play the lottery responsibly.,

Don’t forget to check the free guide: The Lottery and the Winning Formula According to Math.

The Low-High Patterns Based On The Actual EuroMillions Results

Here’s another probability study using the low-high pattern.

We derive the low-high patterns using the following sets:

Low = {1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,…,25}

High = {26,27,28,29,30,…,50}

Again, the results of the study show that EuroMillions follows the dictate of probability.

The table and the graph above reinforces the fact that the EuroMillions game is subordinate to the principle of probability.

  • 3-low-2-high is expected to appear 416 times – it occurred 468 times in the real draw.
  • 4-low-1-high is projected to appear 190 times – it appeared in 216 times in the actual draw.
  • 0-low-5-high is supposed to be drawn 32 times – it was drawn 22 times in the real draw.

As a EuroMillions player, you should pay attention to the composition of your combination and make sure that it follows either the 3-low-2-high or 2-low-3-high patterns.  And never play the rest of the low-high patterns.

Why Prizes Differ Between Currencies

The Euro is the base currency for EuroMillions as it is used by seven of the nine participating countries. When a jackpot is won in the UK the equivalent figure in pounds is paid out, based on the exchange rate on the day of the draw.

For non-jackpot prizes, the amount you receive in the UK is not worked out purely on the basis of the exchange rate. Instead, a formula is in place to take into account each country’s contribution to the game.

Each country that participates in EuroMillions contributes €1.10 into the Common Prize Fund, which is used to pay out prizes to all winners. Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund is the 50% of £1.74 from every EuroMillions ticket sold.

If, using the exchange rates on the day of a draw, Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund works out at less than €1.10, prizes paid out to UK players will be reduced to compensate for the shortfall. If, on the other hand, Camelot’s contribution amounts to more than €1.10, UK winners will receive comparatively bigger prizes than winners in other countries.

To put it simply, if £1.74 is worth less than €2.20, UK winners will receive smaller prizes than those in other countries. If £1.74 is worth more than €2.20, UK players will receive more. These rules ensure that prizes are always in line with how much each participating country contributes to the Common Prize Fund.
