Firstly, the EuroMillions is a transnational lottery requiring 7 correct numbers to win the jackpot. It was launched on 7 February 2004 by France’s Française des Jeux, Spain’s Loterías y Apuestas del Estado and the United Kingdom’s Camelot. The first draw was held on Friday 13 February 2004 in Paris. Initially, only the UK, France and Spain participated. Later on the Austrian, Belgian, Irish, Luxembourgish, Portuguese and Swiss lotteries joining for the 8 October 2004 drawing.
Secondly, draws are held every Tuesday and Friday night at 20:45 CET in Paris. A standard EuroMillions numbers ticket costs €2.50, £2.50 or CHF3.50 per line played. The cost will depend on the local currency.
In addition, an option called Plus is currently available only in Ireland. This adds €1.00 per line; as of February 2014. Similarly, a non-optional addition called “My Million” in France adds €0.50 per line. Also, in Portugal it’s called “M1lhão” and represents €0.30 of the whole €2.50 bet. Great way to compliment the EuroMillions numbers.
Subsequently the cost of playing in the UK increased from £1.50 to £2.00 per line on 7 November 2009. This was due to the combination of the EUR/GBP exchange rate, and an automatic entry in its Millionaire Raffle. From 24 September 2016 the cost per line increased from £2.00 to £2.50 in the UK.
From September 24, 2016 the amount of lucky stars changed from a pool of 11 to a pool of 12 numbers. Decreasing the jackpot winning odds from 1:117 million to 1:140 million.
From September 24, 2016 the cost of entry in Ireland and Spain rose to €2.50 per line.
