How to play Euromillions My Million

To try your luck in the European lottery, several solutions are available to the player. The first being of course the best known : go to an official point of sale to check off his ticket (s), then have them registered in exchange for 2,5 euros per grid. The player also has the option, if he has no inspiration, or simply if he wants to let chance decide until the end, de demander à jouer des grilles dites « flash ». The computer will then select 7 random numbers for each grid. Authorized points of sale are often tobacco shops, but you will also find them at the reception of some shopping malls for example.

The second solution for playing Euromillions is more recent, but attracts more and more players : this is the online game. Simple and secure, this one is reassuring. Indeed, once the somewhat prohibitive step of registration has been completed (using proof of identity and your RIB), online gambling offers many advantages : the first of course being to be sure not to lose your grid once it is played. Another advantage being that of being able to set up recurring bets, so you don't miss a draw by distraction, or to be notified on his email in case of winning. If this second solution interests you, we invite you to read how to play Euromillions My Million on the internet, our complete guide explaining all the advantages of this method, and assisting you in your registration process.

History of The Game

My Million was first introduced on Tuesday 4th February 2014 to offer French players an extra chance of winning a prize when they played EuroMillions. The introduction of the game saw the price of a French EuroMillions ticket rise from €2 to €2.50.

To date there have been My Million numbers issued.

In September 2016, French players received another chance to win a guaranteed €1 million in special EuroMillions draws as the European Millionaire Maker game was introduced as part of changes to EuroMillions. My Million will continue to be offered to ticket holders in France alongside the new raffle.

Broadcast schedule

Originally, only one Euromillions draw was made each week, Friday evenings. It was only since 10 May 2011 that players have seen a second European lottery draw appear each week, done this time on Tuesdays. Nowadays, there are still only two Euromillions draws each week, and the days have not been changed : Tuesdays and Fridays.

Because of its internationality, results and earnings reports are not necessarily disclosed at the same time. However one thing is certain : It is precisely at 8 p.m. that the betting is closed, in order to allow the various organizing companies to send their bets to la Française des jeux, company centralizing these, and carrying out the draw on its premises.

Each country therefore has its own process and schedule for the dissemination of results.. In Belgium for example, we can already discover the amount of the next pot even before the result is revealed, while the opposite is true for Ireland.

In France, the My Million game draw is made around 8:40 p.m. and broadcast on the TF1 channel since 2014 (formerly France 2). The Euromillions draw is broadcast between 10 p.m. and 11 p.m. depending on the schedule of television programs.. The results are also published on the official website of the FDJ, and accessible flat on the TF1 channel platform. Find out more about the Euromillions My Million draw times

How My Million Works

A My Million code is automatically generated for every line of EuroMillions numbers purchased. There is no extra cost to enter the game.

Shortly after the main EuroMillions draw, one unique My Million code will be selected at random from all of the codes purchased for that particular draw. From time to time, special editions of My Million are held in which multiple prizes of €1 million are given away.

The odds of winning a My Million prize will vary from draw to draw as they are dependent on the number of EuroMillions tickets purchased, rather than correctly matching the numbers drawn in the main EuroMillions game.

New EuroMillions rules 2020

In February 2020, the rules of the Euromillions lottery have been modified and validated by all the different European operators. If these rules do not change the odds of the Euromillions lottery, on the other hand, they modify the way in which the prizes are allocated and distributed.

The earnings of the middle ranks are lowered with the new Euromillions rules of 2020. The share of stakes distributed to the ranks 2 at 13 has been revised downwards for all ranks.

The share of bets in increasing the jackpot (rank n ° 1) has been strengthened, permettant aux cagnottes de grossir plus vite qu’auparavant.

The EuroMillions jackpot cap has been revised upwards for the first time since 2004. The maximum amount of the EuroMillions European lottery is set at 200 millions of euros. Once reached, it can be put into play 5 once in a row and in a subsequent series, the maximum ceiling will be extended by 10 millions of euros, up to the maximum 250 millions of euros (10 million euros in 10 millions of euros).

EuroMillions Game Options Available Online

Buying your EuroMillions tickets online, you also gain access to some exciting game options that make the game even more fun and that actually increase your chances of scooping one of the big prizes. Here are the main options you have on theLotter:

Syndicates – An alternative to the standard ticket is purchasing a share in a EuroMillions syndicate. This means you participate in the game together with a group of players owning a large number of tickets, but paying for only a share of the cost. If one of your tickets is a winner, the prize will be split by the group according to the shares each member has purchased. Syndicates are the fastest way to boost your EuroMillions odds!

Bundles – Can’t decide between buying your very own EuroMillions ticket and getting a share in a syndicate? On theLotter, you don’t have to! You can play with both options for a better price! That’s right! Bundle packages get you an individual ticket and a share in a syndicate for a discounted price! You get a better price for experimenting with your game!

Systematic Forms – You can buy EuroMillions tickets with all the possible combinations of 6-10 numbers to increase your winnings. If you match the winning numbers for EuroMillions secondary prizes, you will have them on a lot of tickets, which means you win more prizes. It’s just like having your very own multiplier!

Taxes in Other EuroMillions Countries

If you win a EuroMillions prize in Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland or Luxembourg, you will not be taxed on your winnings, just like in the UK. However, winners will be taxed in Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.

In Portugal, any prize worth more €5,000 is taxed at a rate of 20 percent, while there is a levy of 35 percent in Switzerland on any winnings over CHF1 million. Spanish prizes of more than €40,000 are subject to tax at 20 percent.

You can only claim a EuroMillions prize in the country where you bought your ticket, so you will have to accept the local rules on tax even if you are not a resident of the country.

The total number of EuroMillions winners across all thirteen prize tiers is shown below. This is updated shortly after the latest draw has taken place.
