European Millionaire Maker
European Millionaire Maker is similar to UK Millionaire Maker or My Million, the raffle is designed to guarantee a certain number of prize winners in one night. Players across all 9 participating countries will receive a randomly-generated code for every EuroMillions ticket they buy, with the first letter of the code representing the country where the entry was purchased.
The last European Millionaire Maker draw took place on Friday 23rd February 2018, when 25 millionaires were made across the continent.
Superdraws are held occasionally throughout the year and offer huge jackpots, regardless of the value of the top prize in the previous draw. The jackpot rolls over if no one wins on the night and will continue to do so until at least one ticket matches all five main numbers and two Lucky Stars or it reaches the jackpot cap of €200 million.
EuroMillions jackpots can only rise up to €210 million. After this point, the jackpot cannot roll over any further and additional funds typically used to increase the next draw's jackpot are instead rolled down to the lower prize tiers. This can help to boost the prize pool for 'Match 5 + 1' winners.
The jackpot can remain at the cap value for up to five draws. If no-one matches all five main numbers and the two Lucky Stars in the fifth draw, then the jackpot will be split equally among all winners in the next highest prize tier.
The first time that the jackpot stayed at its cap for five draws was in 2019, when the maximum was €190 million. A draw took place on Tuesday 8th October when it had to be won. The money did not have to roll down, though, as one UK ticket matched all the numbers to win €190 million (£170 million). The winner remained anonymous.
Once the jackpot cap has been reached and the top prize has been given away, the cap will increase to €220 million. Each time the maximum jackpot has been won, the cap will go up by €10 million, up to a possible €250 million.
EuroMillions has a total of 13 prize tiers and the overall odds of winning a prize are also 1 in 13. Prizes are won for matching just two numbers or more and culminate with the jackpot prize for matching all five main numbers plus the two Lucky Star numbers drawn. Prize values vary depending on ticket sales and the number of winners in each prize tier.
In the event that the jackpot is not won, it will roll over to the next draw and be added to the jackpot fund for the following draw. If the jackpot reaches €210 million, it will be capped and held at that level for a maximum of four draws. The top prize must then be won in the fifth draw at €210 million.
Prize Fund Distribution
The following chart illustrates how the EuroMillions prize fund is distributed between each prize tier. The largest percentage is reserved for the jackpot, while the remaining allocations are calculated to reflect how many winners are expected in each tier. The 'Match 2 +0' division, for example, taps into a large percentage of the prize fund because it is likeliest to have the most winners.

Euromillions Prizes - Image Results
Figures calculated using results drawn between 27/09/2016 and 05/02/2021.
 This column displays the percentage of the prize fund allocated to each prize level. The remaining 10% goes into a separate fund, known as the Booster Fund, which is used to ensure there is always enough for the advertised minimum jackpot of €17 million. EuroMillions occasionally holds special draws or promotions, where the guaranteed minimum jackpot can be increased up to as much as €130 million, using surplus funds from the Booster Fund.
The 50% allocated to the jackpot only applies for the first five draws in a series of rollovers. Once the top prize has rolled over five times in a row, the 'Match 5 + 2' allocation is adjusted down to 42% until the jackpot gets won. The remaining 8% goes to the Booster Fund, ensuring that this reserve pot receives 18% of funds from the sixth draw in a rollover series until the jackpot is won.
 The lowest and highest prize amounts for each prize tier, other than the jackpot, are in respect of individual winning tickets.
 The Match 5 + 2 Lucky Stars prize values represent the total jackpot amounts regardless of how many winning tickets there were.
All prize data included in the table above relates to EuroMillions lottery draw results since 27th September 2016 when the Lucky Star pool increased from 11 numbers to 12. The details provided are for information purposes only and are not indicative of future prize values.
How Prizes Are Funded
EuroMillions prizes are funded using revenue from ticket sales. A percentage of the money you spend on entering the game is allocated to the prize fund, with the remainder distributed to good causes, Government Lottery Duty and retailer commission, as well as covering operating costs.
When you play EuroMillions in the UK, the £2.50 you spend per line is broken down into £1.74 for entering the main draw and £0.76 for the UK Millionaire Maker raffle. Fifty percent of the £1.74 spent on the main game is allocated to the prize fund. Thirty percent of the £0.76 spent to enter the Millionaire Maker is used to pay prizes in the supplementary raffle.
Why Prizes Differ Between Currencies
The Euro is the base currency for EuroMillions as it is used by seven of the nine participating countries. When a jackpot is won in the UK the equivalent figure in pounds is paid out, based on the exchange rate on the day of the draw.
For non-jackpot prizes, the amount you receive in the UK is not worked out purely on the basis of the exchange rate. Instead, a formula is in place to take into account each country's contribution to the game.
Each country that participates in EuroMillions contributes €1.10 into the Common Prize Fund, which is used to pay out prizes to all winners. Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund is the 50% of £1.74 from every EuroMillions ticket sold.
If, using the exchange rates on the day of a draw, Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund works out at less than €1.10, prizes paid out to UK players will be reduced to compensate for the shortfall. If, on the other hand, Camelot’s contribution amounts to more than €1.10, UK winners will receive comparatively bigger prizes than winners in other countries.
To put it simply, if £1.74 is worth less than €2.20, UK winners will receive smaller prizes than those in other countries. If £1.74 is worth more than €2.20, UK players will receive more. These rules ensure that prizes are always in line with how much each participating country contributes to the Common Prize Fund.
