A lot of people like to play the EuroMillions lottery because of the big jackpots that are regularly on offer. Indeed, Europe’s most popular lotto had many nine-digit jackpots up for grabs in 2012.
However, one question many people will have is what time is the EuroMillions draw at? The lottery takes place twice a week – on Tuesdays and Fridays – at 20:00 GMT in Paris, France. Lottery tickets need to be bought before 19:10 GMT on the day of the draw and winning tickets are valid for 180 days.
With the odds of winning a prize in EuroMillions being 1:13, it is clear to see why so many individuals try their luck on the lottery.
While national lotteries can be limited to the residents of one particular country, the EuroMillions pools the stakes of the participating European countries in order to offer great top prizes. This means anyone who matches five numbers and two Lucky Stars during the Tuesday or Friday night draws is likely to become a multi-millionaire.
At present there are nine nations taking part in the EuroMillions – Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. However, people from all around the world can enter the EuroMillions online at theLotter, where anyone can also check the latest EuroMillions winning numbers.
Now individuals know what time the EuroMillions draw is at, they have no excuse for not entering and giving themselves a chance of taking home a life-changing sum of money.
There have been a number of heart-warming stories thanks to the EuroMillions. Oliver Milner is one such case, as he won £2 million on the lottery back in September 2012, and can finally move out of his parents’ house with the money.
After discovering his good fortune, he told the Yorkshire Post: “I was in shock. It’s what dreams are made of. I asked my mum to check and she thought I was joking. I’m still in shock now.”
This shows how winning the EuroMillions can truly be an amazing experience for people.
