EuroMillions and UK Millionaire Maker

EuroMillions and UK Millionaire Maker – please see the separate EuroMillions and UK Millionaire Maker Games Procedures, which are available at Retailers and online at national-lottery.co.uk.

EuroMillions

The odds of winning a Prize are approximately 1 in 13. EuroMillions is a separate game in each participating country, but Prizes are pooled and shared between winning players in all participating countries.

All Prizes will be rounded down to the nearest 10p. On average, 50% of EuroMillions sales will be available to be paid out in Prizes to players (the ‘Prize Fund’). For each Draw, 8.6% of the Prize Fund will be put into a fund to supplement future Jackpots.

Actual Prizes will vary each Draw, depending on how many Tickets are sold, how many Entries match the same numbers, and currency exchange rates. If there are more winners than expected in a Prize category, the Prize for that category may be less than the Prize in a lower Prize category. In certain circumstances, if there is no Jackpot winner, some or all of the Jackpot may roll down to the next winning Prize category.

The Jackpot is calculated based on the Euro/Sterling exchange rate and is met from the Prize Fund before the sterling value of the other Prize categories is calculated. This means that the share of the Prize Fund allocated to all Prize categories (except the Jackpot category) varies each week depending on the Euro/Sterling exchange rate. When the Euro value in the exchange rate is below £1.50 = €2.00, Prizes in all categories except the Jackpot category will be reduced. When the Euro value in the exchange rate is above £1.50 = €2.00, Prizes in all categories except the Jackpot category will be increased.

UK Millionaire Maker

How do I win?

If your Entry matches all of the letters and numbers in the exact order chosen in a UK Millionaire Maker Draw, you will win a UK Millionaire Maker Prize, subject to the Rules and Games Procedures.

As there is a guaranteed winner in each UK Millionaire Maker Draw, the odds of winning are one in the total number of Entries for that UK Millionaire Maker Draw (except in a super raffle or on a Mega Friday – explained further on). This means that your chances of winning will reduce as more people play EuroMillions and, therefore, UK Millionaire Maker – this is likely to be when EuroMillions rolls or when there is a EuroMillions event Draw.

The table below sets out the approximate odds of winning a UK Millionaire Maker Prize (where only one UK Millionaire Maker Prize is available to be won) when there is no Rollover money in the EuroMillions Draw that day (EuroMillions base Draw) and when EuroMillions has rolled four times.

Prize table
Draw Date/Type Approximate Odds of Winning Prize
Tuesday – EuroMillions base Draw 1:4,800,000 (based on expected sales of 4.8million UK Millionaire Maker entries) £1,000,000
Friday – EuroMillions base Draw 1:7,500,000 (based on expected sales of 7.5million UK Millionaire Maker entries) £1,000,000
Tuesday – EuroMillions 4th Rollover 1:5,400,000 (based on expected sales of 5.4million UK Millionaire Maker entries) £1,000,000
Friday – EuroMillions 4th Rollover 1:8,700,000 (based on expected sales of 8.7million UK Millionaire Maker entries) £1,000,000

A percentage of UK Millionaire Maker sales will be available to pay the UK Millionaire Maker Prize, the current percentage can be found on the National Lottery website at www.national-lottery.co.uk/euro-uk-prize-payout.

Camelot may increase the number of UK Millionaire Maker Prizes that can be won in a UK Millionaire Maker Draw (usually referred to as a ‘super raffle’) and/or the value of a UK Millionaire Maker Prize.

Camelot may also offer non-cash Prizes with the UK Millionaire Maker Prize on Mega Fridays (which will usually be on the last Friday of a month). 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 also be set out in the relevant Game Specific Rules which will be available on the National Lottery website (national-lottery.co.uk).

As there will be more UK Millionaire Maker Prizes available to be won in a super raffle or on a Mega Friday, your chances of winning a UK Millionaire Maker Prize will change depending on the number of entries into the UK Millionaire Maker Draw and the number of Prizes available to be won.

When are the draws?

  • Tuesday – Results, BBC One from 22:35
