Figures calculated using results drawn between September 2016 and February 2024.

These amounts are the highest and lowest won on a single winning ticket for each tier except Match 5+2.
Values for the jackpot tier relate to the overall amount, regardless of the number of winning players.
This is the highest the jackpot has ever reached in sterling, which was worth €230 million at the time. The prize was won by a single ticket in the UK.

So how much you win depends on the number of winning tickets in that same tier, as well as on the total tickets sold. If there are a large number of winners, then the individual prize amount will be smaller. If there are fewer winning tickets, then the value of the winnings will increase accordingly.

Why Are Prizes Different in GBP and Euros?

EuroMillions uses the Euro as its base currency. As a result, if a UK or Swiss player wins the jackpot, the total must be converted into Pounds/Francs at the current exchange rate, which means the advertised amount is liable to fluctuate. This shift can sometimes benefit players in the UK as bigger sums are available when the Pound is weak against the Euro.

Non-jackpot amounts are calculated using a pari-mutuel system and take into account each country’s contribution to the game.

For example, the cost of playing the main EuroMillions game in the UK is £1.74, while the remaining 76p of the £2.50 entry fee goes towards taking part in the Millionaire Maker draw. Euro countries pay €2.20 for the main game and then varying amounts in addition for their supplementary games. If the exchange rate fluctuates and determines that £1.74 is worth less than €2.20, prizes received by UK players are altered accordingly, compensating for the differing values.
