EuroMillions Prizes and Odds
There are 13 different prize tiers when playing EuroMillions, ranging from Match 2 to the Jackpot. The value of prizes won varies between draws as the amounts paid to winners are determined by ticket sales and how many winners have matched the same amount of numbers.
You can see all of the prize tiers in this table, along with how much of the prize fund is dedicated to each tier and the odds of winning any of the prizes:

The odds of winning any prize in a EuroMillions draw stand at 1 in 13.
 The percentage of the prize fund allocated to the jackpot is 43.2% for the first six draws of every rollover cycle, with 4.8% added to the Reserve Fund, which ensures the jackpot always starts at €17 million. From the seventh draw until the jackpot is won or it rolls down, the allocation for the jackpot is 27%, with 21% paid to the Reserve Fund.

The EuroMillions jackpot begins at €17 million and can roll much higher if no one wins. The jackpot cap is €190 million and once it reaches this level it can only roll four times, after which it must be won. In a draw with a top prize of €190 million, any cash from ticket sales that would have normally increased the value of the jackpot is shared instead between participants in the next winning prize tier. Find out more about how this works at the Jackpot Cap page.
Occasionally, EuroMillions offers Superdraws in which the jackpot is boosted to a guaranteed nine-figure sum. The money comes from surplus in the EuroMillions Reserve Fund and you can learn more at the Superdraws page.
