How many numbers do you need to win?

Players choose five numbers between 1-50 and two Lucky Star numbers between 1-12 – or can get a Lucky Dip for a random selection of numbers.

You can play up to 7 lines of numbers and buy up to 10 play slips at a time.

EuroMillions has a total of 13 prize tiers depending on how many numbers a player matches.

The prize values vary depending on ticket sales and the number of winners in each prize tier.

In order to win the £25 million jackpot, players need to match all five main numbers and both lucky star numbers.

While the jackpot is impressive, you don’t need to get all five numbers and two lucky stars to win big – if you get just five main numbers the jackpot is still a big win.

The UK draw also includes the UK Millionaire Maker with a winning total of £1,000,000.

Your ticket will include a code and the holder will win the £1m prize if they match the winning code.

UK Millionaire Maker is an automatic draw too so comes with your ticket at no extra cost.

To participate in the EuroMillions Lotto,  tickets can be purchased from many outlets, namely at licensed stores and online websites – and entrants must be at least 18 years old.

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 £240million, 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 £240million.

Do you get anything for two numbers?

Out of the 13 prize tiers, the smallest is for those who match just two numbers.

You can win back approximately the price of your ticket with a double number match.

Players who get two of the main five numbers and no Lucky Star numbers can win an estimated £2.50.
