You can view all National Lottery Rules and Procedures at National Lottery Retailers (except for games played online) or on the Site (national-lottery.co.uk) Certain Game Specific Rules are only available to view on the Site. You can also ask for copies by calling the National Lottery Line on 0844 338 7551 (see the Telephone Enquiries section for call charges) or by writing to The National Lottery, PO Box 251, Watford WD18 9BR.

All words and phrases in these Procedures that begin with a capital letter and have specific meaning are explained below or in Section (F).

(A) Introduction to EuroMillions and UK Millionaire Maker

  • (1) EuroMillions is a separate game in each participating country, but prizes are pooled and shared between all winning players using the results of a shared EuroMillions Draw. This is explained in more detail below.
  • (2) UK Millionaire Maker is only available to play in the UK and Isle of Man. Camelot can withdraw the UK Millionaire Maker game at any time by giving at least four weeks' notice.
  • (3) EuroMillions costs £1.65 to play and UK Millionaire Maker costs 85 pence to play. However, as entry into UK Millionaire Maker is automatic when You play EuroMillions and the Games cannot be played separately, the total cost of playing is £2.50.
  • (4) Draws for both Games take place on Tuesdays and Fridays, unless there are exceptional circumstances.
Back to the top

(B) Playing EuroMillions and UK Millionaire Maker

  • (1) For each EuroMillions Entry, You will be given a unique UK Millionaire Maker code made up of four letters and five numbers generated by Camelot's Computer System – this will be Your UK Millionaire Maker Entry.
  • (2) Your UK Millionaire Maker Entry will automatically be entered into the UK Millionaire Maker Draw taking place on the same day as the EuroMillions Draw You have entered.
  • (3) If You buy a Multi–Draw Ticket for EuroMillions, the same UK Millionaire Maker code on that Ticket will be entered into all UK Millionaire Maker Draws that Your Multi–Draw Ticket is valid for. As Camelot's automatic draw machine selects a winning UK Millionaire Maker Entry at random from all valid UK Millionaire Maker Entries, each UK Millionaire Maker Entry has an equal chance of winning, regardless of whether it was bought on the day of the UK Millionaire Maker Draw or a number of weeks in advance.
  • (4) It is possible to win a Prize and a UK Millionaire Maker Prize with one Entry.

(C) More about EuroMillions

(1) How to win in EuroMillions

If Your EuroMillions Entry matches any of the Prize categories in the table in Section (C)(2) below, You will win a Prize in the highest relevant Prize category providing the requirements of the Rules and these Procedures are met.

(2) Prize Categories, Prizes and Odds of Winning

  • 1. The table below sets out and explains the Prize categories, the approximate odds of winning and the Common Prize Fund (explained in Section (C)(3) below) allocated to each Prize category.
Prize table
Prize Categories Approximate Odds of Winning Estimated Prize Proportion of Common Prize Fund allocated to Prize Category
Jackpot category (Match 5 + 2 Lucky Stars) = all Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers and Select 2 Numbers match the Lucky Star Numbers 1:139,838,160 Jackpot 43.2% for EuroMillions Draws 1 to 6 inclusive in a roll series and 27% for EuroMillions Draws from Draw number 7 to the last Draw in that roll series* (plus any rollover money from the previous EuroMillions Draw and/or extra money from the EuroMillions Reserve Fund, subject to the Jackpot cap, explained below)
Match 5 + 1 Lucky Star = all Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers and one Select 2 Number matches the Lucky Star Numbers 1:6,991,908 £227,848.80 3.95% **
Match 5 = all Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers 1:3,107,515 £23,586 0.92% **
Match 4 + 2 Lucky Stars = four Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers and Select 2 Numbers match the Lucky Star Numbers 1:621,503 £2,307.30 0.45% **
Match 4 + 1 Lucky Star = four Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers and one Select 2 Number matches the Lucky Star Numbers 1:31,076 £123 0.48% **
Match 3 + 2 Lucky Stars = three Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers and Select 2 Numbers match the Lucky Star Numbers 1:14,126 £78 0.67% **
Match 4 = four Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers 1:13,812 £43.30 0.38% **
Match 2 + 2 Lucky Stars = two Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers and Select 2 Numbers match the Lucky Star Numbers 1:986 £14.20 1.75% **
Match 3 + 1 Lucky Star = three Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers and one Select 2 Number matches the Lucky Star Numbers 1:707 £10.70 1.85% **
Match 3 = three Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers 1:314 £9 3.50% **
Match 1 + 2 Lucky Stars = one Select 5 Number matches the Main Numbers and Select 2 Numbers match the Lucky Star Numbers 1:188 £7.60 4.95% **

Match 2 = two Select 5 Numbers match the Main Numbers 1:22 £3.30 18.25% **

* 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 Ticket from the UK or Isle of Man and win a Prize, You can only claim it from Camelot.

(3) Calculating EuroMillions Prizes

  • 1. If there are more winners than expected in a Prize category for any EuroMillions Draw, the Prize for that Prize category might be lower than the Prize for a lower Prize category.
  • 2. If there are no winners in a Prize category (except the Jackpot category), the prize money allocated to that Prize category will be added to the next lower Prize category where there is at least one winner. If there are no winners in any Prize category in a EuroMillions Draw, the money will be added to the Jackpot Prize Fund (explained in Section (C)(3)(10) below) for the next EuroMillions Draw.

The Camelot Prize Fund and Common Prize Fund

  • 3. Camelot will calculate 50% of the price paid for a EuroMillions Entry and this will be the fund Camelot uses to pay Prizes ("Camelot Prize Fund").
  • 4. Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners currently allocate one Euro and ten cents per EuroMillions entry into a shared prize fund ("Common Prize Fund"). As sales in the UK and Isle of Man are in pounds sterling, Camelot uses the exchange rate confirmed by its bankers on the date of the relevant EuroMillions Draw to calculate its contribution.
  • 5. The Common Prize Fund is allocated to each Prize category in the proportions set out in the table in Section (C)(2) above. Once the allocation has been made, the Euro prize amounts relating to the number of winners in the UK and Isle of Man are payable to Camelot, and are converted into pounds sterling using the same exchange rate mentioned above.
  • 6. The difference between the Camelot Prize Fund and Camelot's contribution to the Common Prize Fund is then dealt with in the following way:
  • a) if the Camelot Prize Fund is greater than the sterling value of its contribution to the Common Prize Fund (using the same exchange rate mentioned above), the excess is added to the funds available to pay UK and Isle of Man Prizes in each Prize category, excluding the Jackpot category. The excess is shared in the same proportion which the amount of Prizes payable in one Prize category has to the total amount of Prizes payable across all Prize categories (excluding the Jackpot category); and
  • b) if the Camelot Prize Fund is less than the sterling value of its contribution to the Common Prize Fund (using the same exchange rate mentioned above), the shortfall is deducted from the funds available to pay UK and Isle of Man Prizes in each Prize category (excluding the Jackpot category). The shortfall is shared in the same proportion which the amount of Prizes payable in one Prize category has to the total amount of Prizes payable across all Prize categories (excluding the Jackpot category).
  • 6. The difference between the Camelot Prize Fund and Camelot's contribution to the Common Prize Fund is then dealt with in the following way:
    1. a) if the Camelot Prize Fund is greater than the sterling value of its contribution to the Common Prize Fund (using the same exchange rate mentioned above), the excess is added to the funds available to pay UK and Isle of Man Prizes in each Prize category, excluding the Jackpot category. The excess is shared in the same proportion which the amount of Prizes payable in one Prize category has to the total amount of Prizes payable across all Prize categories (excluding the Jackpot category); and
    2. b) if the Camelot Prize Fund is less than the sterling value of its contribution to the Common Prize Fund (using the same exchange rate mentioned above), the shortfall is deducted from the funds available to pay UK and Isle of Man Prizes in each Prize category (excluding the Jackpot category). The shortfall is shared in the same proportion which the amount of Prizes payable in one Prize category has to the total amount of Prizes payable across all Prize categories (excluding the Jackpot category).
  • 7. The effect of the above is that where Players pay more than the pound sterling equivalent of two Euros and twenty cents (€2.20) for their EuroMillions Entry, the excess mentioned in a) above is kept for distribution amongst UK and Isle of Man winners. This means Prizes in all Prize categories (except the Jackpot Prize category) are increased. Where Players pay less, Prizes in all Prize categories (except the Jackpot category) are reduced. The overall contribution by Camelot is therefore maintained at 50% of the cost of a EuroMillions Entry.

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.
EuroMillions Reserve Fund 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.
Different types of EuroMillions Draws and the Jackpot amount available for each
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 (one hundred and ninety million Euros). 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.

(4) Promotional European Millionaire Maker Draws

  1. Camelot and the EuroMillions Partners may decide to run a European Millionaire Maker Draw from time to time which will be in addition to the EuroMillions Draw.
  2. If You buy a EuroMillions Entry for the day of the European Millionaire Maker Draw, the UK Millionaire Maker Entry You get will also be Your European Millionaire Maker Entry, and You will automatically be entered into that European Millionaire Maker Draw.
  3. If Your European Millionaire Maker Entry matches all of the letters and numbers in the exact order (reading from left to right) You will win a European Millionaire Maker Prize, provided the requirements of the Rules and these Procedures are met.
  4. For each European Millionaire Maker Draw there will be a number of prizes of €1,000,000 (one million Euros) (or any other amount, which may be more than €1,000,000, as agreed by the EuroMillions Partners) available to be won (each a "European Millionaire Maker Prize"). The number of European Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won will be advertised before the European Millionaire Maker Draw, and may change in each European Millionaire Maker Draw. The number of European Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won in a European Millionaire Maker Draw will be only the number advertised by Camelot for that European Millionaire Maker Draw, regardless of the number of European Millionaire Maker Prizes that were available to be won in any previous European Millionaire Maker Draw.
  5. The European Millionaire Maker Prizes will be funded from the EuroMillions Reserve Fund. If a Player wins a European Millionaire Maker Prize, Camelot will convert the €1,000,000 into pounds sterling using the exchange rate confirmed by its bankers on the date of the relevant European Millionaire Maker Draw. Camelot may then, at its discretion, use the UK Millionaire Maker Reserve Fund (see Section (D)(2)(5) to pay each Player that won a European Millionaire Maker Prize an additional amount, if any, so that the total amount payable to the Player equals £1,000,000 (one million pounds). Camelot will advertise in advance of the European Millionaire Maker Draw if it intends to increase the amount payable to Players who win a European Millionaire Maker Prize to £1,000,000, and previous decisions made by Camelot to do so will not be binding for future European Millionaire Maker Draws.

(5) Suspension from taking part and Postponement

  1. If, for any reason, Camelot or any EuroMillions Partner is suspended from taking part in a EuroMillions Draw or a European Millionaire Maker Draw, players in that EuroMillions country will not be allowed to play in that EuroMillions Draw or European Millionaire Maker Draw. If Camelot is suspended, it also means that Players may not be able to take part in the corresponding UK Millionaire Maker Draw.
  2. Where Camelot considers it reasonable to do so, it may postpone a EuroMillions Draw (or any European Millionaire Maker Draw) for as long as it considers to be appropriate in the circumstances. In that case (by way of example only, where there has been a significant disruption to the sale of Tickets for the Games) Camelot may continue to sell Tickets for that EuroMillions Draw (and any European Millionaire Maker Draw) beyond the normal Draw break for that EuroMillions Draw.

(6) Liability

  • 1. If Camelot does not take part in a EuroMillions Draw for any reason, it will not be liable to anyone for, (including but not limited to) the following:
    • a) any failure to contribute to the Common Prize Fund for that EuroMillions Draw, and a resulting reduction in the prize that a EuroMillions Partner would otherwise have paid that person; and/or
    • b) any special, indirect or consequential loss suffered by that person.
  • 2. If a EuroMillions Partner does not take part in a EuroMillions Draw for any reason, Camelot will not be liable to a EuroMillions Player in the UK or Isle of Man, or anyone who plays EuroMillions in any other EuroMillions country. This includes, but is not limited to:
    • a) liability arising from any failure by a EuroMillions Partner to contribute to the Common Prize Fund and a resulting reduction in the Prize that Camelot would have otherwise paid to a winner in the UK or Isle of Man; and/or
    • b) any special, indirect or consequential loss suffered by that person.

(D) More about UK Millionaire Maker

(1) How to win in UK Millionaire Maker

If Your UK Millionaire Maker Entry matches all of the letters and numbers in the exact order chosen in a UK Millionaire Maker Draw (reading from left to right), You will win a UK Millionaire Maker Prize, provided the requirements of the Rules and these Procedures are met.

(2) Prizes and Odds of Winning

  • There are two UK Millionaire Maker prizes of £1,000,000 (one million pounds) (each a "UK Millionaire Maker Prize") available to be won in each UK Millionaire Maker Draw. Camelot can at any time increase the number of UK Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won in a UK Millionaire Maker Draw – usually referred to as a "Super Raffle" – and/or the amount of a UK Millionaire Maker Prize.
  • Camelot may offer non–cash prize(s) with a UK Millionaire Maker Prize in special UK Millionaire Maker Draws from time to time, such as Mega Fridays and Mega Tuesdays. Camelot will advertise details of any non–cash prizes, including what they are and when they are available to be won, in advance and further details will be set out in the applicable Game Specific Rules which will be available on the Site.
  • Camelot may also run special draws (such as the UK Millionaire Maker Monthly Bonus Draw) from time to time which Players can get entry into via the Site. Details of such special draws, including when they are being held and the prize(s) available to be won, will be set out in the applicable Game Specific Rules which will be available on the Site. Camelot will also advertise these special draws.
  • A percentage of the total value of UK Millionaire Maker Entries in a UK Millionaire Maker Draw will be available to pay the UK Millionaire Maker Prizes, and the current percentage can be found on the Site. Any prize money in excess of that needed to pay the UK Millionaire Maker Prizes for that UK Millionaire Maker Draw will be put in a fund known as the UK Millionaire Maker Reserve Fund.
  • The UK Millionaire Maker Reserve Fund will be used if there are not enough funds from sales to pay the UK Millionaire Maker Prizes in any UK Millionaire Maker Draw. It can also be used:
    1. a) to increase the amount of a UK Millionaire Maker Prize(s); and/or
    2. b) to fund additional UK Millionaire Maker Prizes in a Super Raffle or in special UK Millionaire Maker Draws such as Mega Fridays (including non–cash Prizes); and/or
    3. c) to pay each Player that won a European Millionaire Maker Prize an additional amount so that the total amount payable to the Player equals £1,000,000 (one million pounds) and to fund prizes in any special draws accessible via the Site); and/or
    4. d) any other promotional purposes approved by the Commission.
  • As there are two guaranteed winners in each UK Millionaire Maker Draw, the odds of winning are two in the total number of UK Millionaire Maker Entries for that UK Millionaire Maker Draw (except in a Super Raffle or in special UK Millionaire Maker Draws such as Mega Fridays and Mega Tuesdays). This means that Your chances of winning will reduce as more people play EuroMillions and UK Millionaire Maker – this is likely to be when EuroMillions rolls, when there is a European Millionaire Maker Draw or when there is a EuroMillions Super Draw.
  • The table below sets out the approximate odds of winning a UK Millionaire Maker Prize (where only two UK Millionaire Maker Prizes are available to be won) when there is no rollover money in the EuroMillions Draw that day ("EuroMillions Base Draw") and no European Millionaire Maker Draw, and when EuroMillions has rolled four times and there is no European Millionaire Maker Draw.
  • UK Millionaire Maker Prize table
    Draw Date/Type Approximate Odds of Winning
    Tuesday – EuroMillions Base Draw 1:1,900,000expected sales of 3.8 million UK Millionaire Maker Entries)
    Friday – EuroMillions Base Draw 1:2,950,000(based on expected sales of 5.9million UK Millionaire Maker Entries)
    Tuesday – EuroMillions 4th rollover 1:2,250,000(based on expected sales of 4.5million UK Millionaire Maker Entries)
    Friday – EuroMillions 4th rollover 1:3,400,000(based on expected sales of 6.8million UK Millionaire Maker Entries)
  • As there will be more UK Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won in a Super Raffle and in special UK Millionaire Maker Draws such as Mega Fridays and Mega Tuesdays, Your chances of winning a UK Millionaire Maker Prize will change depending on the number of UK Millionaire Maker Entries into the UK Millionaire Maker Draw and the number of UK Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won.
  • (3) Postponement of UK Millionaire Maker

    Where Camelot considers it reasonable to do so, it may postpone a UK Millionaire Maker Draw for as long as it considers to be appropriate in the circumstances. In that case (by way of example only, where there has been a significant disruption to the sale of Tickets for the Games) Camelot may continue to sell Tickets for that UK Millionaire Maker Draw beyond the normal Draw break for that UK Millionaire Maker Draw.
