EuroMillions Jackpots Set to Become Bigger than Ever

28 Jan 2020

Exciting news for EuroMillions fans! Europe's leading transnational lottery kicks off 2020 with a boosted jackpot cap and its first Superdraw of the year.

Starting Tuesday, 4 February 2020, the EuroMillions jackpot cap will grow from €190 million to €200 million, but that’s not all. The jackpots awarded by EuroMillions can grow as high as €250 million based on a new jackpot cap formula introduced by the lottery.

EuroMillions jackpot cap superdraw

The first draw to benefit from the higher jackpot cap is the EuroMillions Superdraw, which will take place on Friday, 7 February 2020. The Superdraw offers an initial guaranteed €130 million jackpot but that can rollover as high as €200 million if it’s not won. Changes in the EuroMillions prize structure will increase the jackpot more rapidly than in the past, making it more likely than ever that the jackpot cap will be reached.

Once the Superdraw reaches its maximum jackpot, it can stay at that amount for four drawings. After this, if the jackpot is not won, the prize money rolls down to be divided among the winners of the next highest prize tier. This rule is not changing.

How the New Jackpot Cap Works

Once the EuroMillions jackpot rolls over to its maximum €200 million for the first time, the jackpot cap will grow to €210 million in the next EuroMillions series. When that amount is reached, the jackpot cap will grow to €220 million. This system of boosting the top prize will continue until the EuroMillions jackpot cap reaches €250 million.

These changes are set to secure EuroMillions’ position as the leading lottery in Europe. This follows the €209,160,441.54 jackpot awarded by SuperEnalotto in August 2019, the biggest lottery prize ever awarded in Europe so far.
