* If there is a EuroMillions Super Draw (as explained in Sections (C)(3)(9) and (C)(3)(10)) then the proportion of the Common Prize Fund allocated to the Jackpot category will be 27% for that EuroMillions Draw. If the Super Draw is a Super Minimum Jackpot Guarantee Draw, the allocation to the Jackpot category will stay at 27% for the remaining EuroMillions Draws in that roll series (i.e. until the Jackpot is won or until, and including, the fifth EuroMillions Draw in which the Jackpot is at the Jackpot cap level).

** plus any money rolled down from higher Prize categories – more information is set out in Section (C)(3) below.

  • (2) The odds of winning any Prize are approximately 1 in 13. The value of Your Prize will depend on the number of tickets sold, the number of entries that match the same numbers as You, and currency exchange rates - more detail is given on this in Section (C)(3) below. All Prizes will be rounded down to the nearest 10p.
  • (3) Camelot is not liable in any circumstances, and will not pay a prize, to a player who bought an entry into EuroMillions from outside the UK or Isle of Man. Likewise, if You buy Your Entry from the UK or Isle of Man and win a Prize, You can only claim it from Camelot.

EuroMillions Reserve Fund

  • (8) For each EuroMillions Draw, a percentage of the Common Prize Fund will be added to a fund known as the EuroMillions Reserve Fund. The EuroMillions Reserve Fund is shared by Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners and can be used to increase the value of the Jackpot, and increase the value of the Prize in any Prize category (with the consent of the Commission), and for other promotional purposes (including, for example, funding European Millionaire Maker Prizes). The percentage added to the EuroMillions Reserve Fund will be as set out in the following table.
  • Prizes table
    Draw Number in a EuroMillions roll series* Percentage allocated to the EuroMillions Reserve Fund
    EuroMillions Draw numbers 1 to 6 inclusive** 4.8%
    EuroMillions Draw number 7 to the last Draw in that roll series. 21%

    * A roll series ends when the Jackpot is won or after the fifth EuroMillions Draw in which the Jackpot is at the Jackpot cap level has taken place.

    **In a EuroMillions Super Draw (see Sections (C)(3)(9) and (C)(3)(10) below) the allocation to the EuroMillions Reserve Fund will be 21% for that EuroMillions Draw. If the Super Draw is a EuroMillions Super Minimum Jackpot Guarantee Draw, the allocation to the EuroMillions Reserve Fund will stay at 21% for the remaining EuroMillions Draws in that roll series (i.e. until the Jackpot is won or until, and including, the fifth EuroMillions Draw in which the Jackpot is at the Jackpot cap level).

Jackpot Prize Fund and EuroMillions Super Draws

  • (9) Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners may decide to make any EuroMillions Draw a "Super Draw". There are two types of Super Draw – both have a guaranteed minimum Jackpot, but the difference between them is what happens to the Jackpot if no one wins it.
  • (10) The table below sets out the different types of EuroMillions Draws and the Jackpot amount available for each ("Jackpot Prize Fund"), and also explains what happens to the Jackpot if it is not won.
Table showing the different types of EuroMillions Draws and the Jackpot amount available for each ("Jackpot Prize Fund"), and explaining what happens to the Jackpot if it is not won
Type of EuroMillions Draw Jackpot Prize Fund* What happens to the Jackpot Prize Fund if there are no winners in the Jackpot Prize category?
EuroMillions Draw See the Jackpot category row in the table in Section (C)(2)(1) It is rolled over and added to the Jackpot Prize Fund for the next EuroMillions Draw (and if relevant, to the EuroMillions Draw after that)*
Super Draw One – EuroMillions Super Minimum Jackpot Guarantee Draw (SMJG) A guaranteed minimum amount It is rolled over and added to the Jackpot Prize Fund for the next EuroMillions Draw (and if relevant, to the EuroMillions Draw after that)*
Super Draw Two – EuroMillions Event Draw A guaranteed minimum amount It rolls down to the next Prize category, in the same EuroMillions Draw, where there is at least one winner

*subject to the Jackpot cap (see below).

  • (11) The Jackpot Prize Fund is shared equally between all EuroMillions winners (across all EuroMillions countries) in the Jackpot category. Any Jackpot Prize payable to a winner in the UK and Isle of Man will be converted from Euros to pounds sterling (using the exchange rate confirmed by Camelot’s bankers on the relevant EuroMillions Draw date) and is, therefore, subject to currency fluctuations.

Jackpot cap

  • (12) The EuroMillions Jackpot is not allowed to exceed €190 million. If the Jackpot for any EuroMillions Draw reaches this cap, the Jackpot will stay at this amount. Any prize money that would have increased the Jackpot above the level of the Jackpot cap will roll down to the next Prize category in that EuroMillions Draw where there is at least one winner, thereby increasing prizes in that lower Prize category. Once the Jackpot has reached the cap, it can roll four times before it must be won. This means that if the Jackpot is not won in the first EuroMillions Draw when the cap is reached, it will stay at the level of the cap for the next four EuroMillions Draws, providing it is not won. If the Jackpot is not won in that fourth EuroMillions Draw (which will be the fifth successive EuroMillions Draw at the Jackpot cap), the Jackpot Prize Fund will roll down to the next Prize category where there is at least one winner. If the Jackpot reached the cap in the EuroMillions Draw on 23rd September 2016, the EuroMillions Draw on 27th September will be considered to be the second of a maximum of five successive EuroMillions Draws in which the Jackpot can be at the cap level.
  • (13) Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners can change the level of the Jackpot cap at any time.
