The EuroMillions jackpot continues growing if no one wins when the draw is made and the prize can increase up to €190 million. When the ultimate prize reaches this level, it has to be capped. Any additional money to the jackpot in the jackpot prize is rolled over to increase the reward money at the next highest tier of winners. The reason for capping the EuroMillions jackpot is to protect you from over-indulging in wagering or the betting company accumulating too much prize money.

Other National Lottery Games
EuroMillions is one of the UK’s favourite lottery games, but it is not the only major lottery on offer in the country. The games below are also enjoyed by many players every week.
HotPicks uses the same winning numbers as the main Lotto draw but is treated as a separate game. It costs £1 per line and to play you must first decide how many numbers you want to try and match. For example, you can play a ‘Pick 1’ game, where you pick and try to match just one number, right up to a ‘Pick 5’ game, where you must pick and match five numbers. You do not win anything for matching fewer numbers than you choose, so for example if you play a Pick 5 game, you do not win anything for matching four or fewer numbers. The top prize is worth £350,000 and is won by picking and matching five numbers.
Thunderball is another UK National Lottery game, which takes place every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, offering prizes of up to £500,000. Players must select five main numbers between 1 and 39 and one Thunderball number from 1 to 14. Anyone matching all five numbers plus the Thunderball wins the £500,000 top prize. In addition, there are eight other prize levels on offer, and you can be a winner by matching just the Thunderball.
Set For Life
Set For Life is the first annuity lottery ever to be played in the UK, with draws held every Monday and Thursday. It costs just £1.50 per line, and you can play by selecting five main numbers from 1 to 47 and a Life Ball between 1 and 10.
The top two prizes are paid in the form of an annuity, in which winners receive the prize money gradually over a certain time period. The top prize pays £10,000 every month for 30 years, for a total of £3.6 million; match five numbers and the Life Ball to win it. The second prize pays £10,000 per month for one year, for a total of £120,000; just match five main numbers to claim the prize. The odds of winning the top prize are 1 in 15,339,390 and the overall odds of winning a prize are 1 in 12.4.
Occasionally, the National Lottery will hold special Set For Life draws called Super Chance Draws. During a Super Chance Draw, you can win £10,000 a month for 30 years by matching just the five main balls – increasing your odds of winning the top prize to 1 in 1,533,939. Super Chance Draws will be announced several weeks ahead of their draw date, and you can enter them in the same way as a regular Set For Life draw.
Many people pick significant dates for their EuroMillions numbers, a method that instantly limits you to only the first 31 main balls. If a number from 32 onwards is drawn, you will be unable to win the jackpot. There is also the added problem that if, by some chance, all the main numbers do come in below 31, you might have to share the prize with a larger than usual number of players due to the popularity of this system, diminishing any winnings you do receive.
An alternative is to use the door numbers of houses in which you have lived or even portions of loved ones’ telephone numbers, neither of which are limited to a certain range of values. You can still achieve some level of personal meaning with these numbers, but you won’t put yourself out of the running for the jackpot if a number in the 40s or high 30s is drawn.
It is suggested that many people play the previous winning line in the following draw, hoping that the numbers will come up again. It is certainly possible; in September 2009, the same balls turned up in two consecutive draws of the Bulgarian national lottery. However, even if that did occur in EuroMillions, you would almost certainly have to split the prize a number of ways, receiving only a portion of the advertised amount.
Some people like to make their selections on the numbers that have appeared most often in the winning line, whilst others prefer to choose those that haven’t been drawn for the longest time, suggesting they may be due an appearance in the EuroMillions results. These are known as hot or cold numbers and you can find this information and more at the Statistics page.
