How High Can EuroMillions Go?

EuroMillions is one of the biggest international lotteries in the world and has been making millionaires across Europe since its inception in 2004.

All thanks to EuroMillions, winners worldwide have created lavish lifestyles for themselves far beyond their wildest dreams. The possibilities are endless with luxury cars, private jets, world trips, and mansions!

So, the question on everyone’s mind is:

HOW HIGH CAN EUROMILLIONS GO?

The EuroMillions has a maximum jackpot of AUD$350 million. The next time the cap is reached, it will be extended by another €10 million (AUD$15 million) which will see it  reach a whopping AUD$365 million, where it will stay.

HOW THE EUROMILLIONS JACKPOT CAP WORKS

The minimum jackpot is €17 million (approximately AUD$25 million). When the jackpot is not won, the jackpot rolls over to the next draw. The jackpot increases each draw where it’s not won until it reaches the EuroMillions jackpot cap. When the cap is reached, if it is not then won for 5 draws, the jackpot prize rolls down to the next division with a winner.

WHY IS EUROMILLIONS CAPPED?

The EuroMillions jackpot cap allows for lower divisions to win the jackpot if it’s not won for 5 consecutive draws when the cap has been reached.

HOW TO PLAY EUROMILLIONS

EuroMillions Players are required to select 5 main numbers, from 1 to 50. They must also select two ‘Lucky Star’ numbers from an additional pool of 1 to 12. During the draw process, 5 random main numbers are drawn, and 2 random Lucky Stars are drawn. The draw takes place twice weekly, on Tuesdays and Fridays in Paris.
