EuroMillions Plus offers you an additional chance to win up to €500,000 using the same numbers you played in the main EuroMillions game. Draws are held shortly after EuroMillions every Tuesday and Friday, with five numbers drawn from a pool of 50.
Although EuroMillions is played across nine countries in Europe, only Irish players have the opportunity to enter EuroMillions Plus, and the favourable odds make it a very popular option.
How to Play
When picking your EuroMillions numbers, you can also enter the Plus game by selecting the option on your payslip. For an additional €1, your five main numbers are entered into both EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus games. The Lucky Stars from your EuroMillions ticket do not count towards the winning EuroMillions Plus line as the game only uses the five main numbers.
As EuroMillions and EuroMillions Plus are two separate games, it is possible to win prizes in both draws, so it is important to check both sets of results carefully. Although you can play EuroMillions without entering Plus, you cannot play Plus without first taking part in the main pan-European draw. Use the Ticket Checker after the draw takes place to see if you are winner.
You can also take part in up to eight EuroMillions Plus draws in advance to make sure you don’t miss out on a game. All you have to do is tick the Advance Play box and decide whether you want to enter the next one, two, four, six or eight draws, and you will see the dates which your ticket is eligible for.
Prizes are awarded to players whose original EuroMillions numbers match three or more of the five EuroMillions Plus numbers drawn.
All prizes are fixed, which means the top prize of €500,000 does not roll over to the next draw if it is not won. However, it also means that you are guaranteed to win €500,000 if you match all five numbers, even if multiple other players do the same.
The three prize tiers and the odds of winning in each are as follows:
|Match 5||€500,000||1 in 2,118,760|
|Match 4||€2,000||1 in 9,417|
|Match 3||€20||1 in 214|
Prize amounts will be adjusted in the unlikely scenario that the combined total of prizes exceeds €3 million.
Any EuroMillions Plus prizes must be claimed within 90 days of the draw, just the same as every other Irish National Lottery game.
