About the EuroMillions Rule Changes:

From February 1, 2020 the games prize structure will be changed to add a larger percentage of sales to the jackpot prize tiers. This change will make the jackpots grow even more quickly than they currently do which means, bigger prizes to be won more quickly.

The change also means that more money will be put in the EuroMillions reserve fund so there will be special promotions 3 times a year instead of 2 with a minimum jackpot of €100 million. Of course, it wouldn’t be possible to make these changes without also increasing the maximum jackpot, so the maximum jackpot will be upped from €190 million to a whopping €200 million. The rollover rule will be applied to the new capped jackpot amount.

How do EuroMillions prize tiers work?

There are 13 tier prizes in total. There are 4 prize tiers with awards paid for matching anything from three numbers or more. The value of each prize including the jackpot is dependent on ticket sales and the number of winners per prize tier.

Understanding the EuroMillions roll-down rule:

The roll-down rule is a rule that was introduced, and appropriately named, by the EuroMillions in 2016. The rule states that after the jackpot reaches its cap of €200 Million, it will remain at the capped amount for 5 consecutive draws. If after those 5 draws it’s still not won, the prize money will roll-down and be divided between the winners of the next highest pier tier.

What’s so special about the EuroMillions Superdraws?

The EuroMillions Superdraw is a special lottery event that the EuroMillions puts on from time to time. Superdraws are special because of the main difference between it and regular draws. Superdraws offer a preset jackpot guaranteeing a massive 9-figure prize.

Superdraws follow the same rules as the regular EuroMillions draw in terms of where and when draws take place as well as the draws rules.

Although, they can happen any time, historically, the most popular months for Superdraws are September, March and June. Usually, the EuroMillions historically put on 2 Superdraws a year, but once the new rules were applied on February 1, 2020 this special event was increased to 3 times a year.

The most recent Superdraw was won after only 1 rollover by a lucky UK winner. The Superdraw had started with a €130 million jackpot on June 7th, 2019.

Has Jackpot.com had any EuroMillions winners?

Yes! To date, two Jackpot.com players have won the EuroMillions top prizes!

The first Jackpot winner was Valentin, a welder from Enfield in London. He won a hefty €248,864.38 prize on March 21st, 2017 just a few weeks after registering with Jackpot.com.

Maria from Malta, the second Jackpotter to win the EuroMillions, scooped up €97,312.73 through her EuroMillions subscriptions with Jackpot.com. Jackpot.com’s own Corey had the pleasure of calling Maria to tell her she won. When she first found out she couldn’t believe her own luck and said: “You must be joking, are you sure it’s €97,000 and not €9,700?”.
