Spain - EuroMillions Information

The EuroMillions lottery is one of the world’s premier lotteries with fans from around the globe. EuroMillions has built an international reputation on record jackpots and exciting rollovers, and the lottery features prominently on theLotter.

EuroMillions History

While the idea for the EuroMillions was conceived in 1990, the multi-country lottery only became a reality in 2004. In February of 2004, three lottery organizations from different European countries (Française des Jeux from France, Loterías y Apuestas del Estado from Spain, and the Camelot Lottery from Britain) came together to form the original EuroMillions. The following October, the Austrian, Belgian, Irish, Luxembourg, Portuguese and Swiss lotteries all joined the EuroMillions as well. With the addition of more countries, the jackpots began to break historical records.

Today, EuroMillions is enjoyed in the UK, Switzerland, France, Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal and Spain.  Players can participate in this lottery from around the globe by playing online with theLotter.

EuroMillions moved from a once a week format to bi-weekly draws in May in 2011. Since then, the EuroMillions’ popularity has continued to grow along with its jackpots. Proceeds are distributed amongst the cooperating lottery organizations.

The largest jackpots include: €183 Million (US$247 million) both in February and November of 2006, €130 Million in February and September of 2007 and in February and September of 2008, €185 Million in July of 2011, and €190 Million in August of 2012, October of 2014, October 2017, and October 2019.

EuroMillions Rules

To play EuroMillions online, players select five numbers from a guess range of 1-50 and two additional numbers, called 'Lucky Stars', from a guess range of 1-12. Those interested in learning more about the rules of other popular lotteries should visit our online lottery informational pages.

Winning the EuroMillions

To win the EuroMillions top prize, players must successfully match all five numbers drawn from the main drum and both Lucky Stars. The jackpot limit of €190 million was reached four times: in August 2012, October of 2014, October 2017, and October 2019. The jackpot cap has since been raised to €200 million

EuroMillions Anecdotes

The Really Big Win- The October 8, 2019 EuroMillions jackpot is one that will be hard for UK players to forget! The draw's staggering €190 million jackpot was the biggest lottery prize ever awarded to a single UK citizen! The last time a single UK player won anything close to this was back in 2011 when Colin and Chris Weir were awarded a €185 million EuroMillions jackpot. This specific jackpot is also special because it's the first time that the EuroMillions top prize hit the jackpot cap without the help of a Superdraw!

The Superdraw- EuroMillions holds Superdraws on random occasions throughout the year. The Superdraw format is the same as that of the regular EuroMillions draw, with the major difference being its guaranteed starting jackpot of €100 million. Like the regular EuroMillions draws, the Superdraw is capped at a €200 million jackpot. The next EuroMillions superdraw will be staged on 3 July 2020 with a boosted jackpot prize of €130 million!

Those who enjoy the EuroMillions’ world-famous jackpots may enjoy some other European lotto games such as the Spanish lottery La Primitiva, or big name lotteries such as the jackpot record holder US Powerball or the equally exciting Mega Millions!

Learn About EuroMillions and El Millón Raffle Draws

The EuroMillions lottery is even more exciting because players who purchase tickets for the biweekly drawings on Tuesday and Friday automatically participate in the Spanish El Millón raffle, which takes place in parallel to the drawings. Each of the two weekly raffles awards one lucky ticket holder with a €1 million prize. This amazing raffle is in addition to participation in the biggest, most popular pan-European lottery. The starting EuroMillions jackpot is €17 million and the prize can grow to as much as the jackpot cap of €200 million. Check EuroMillions lottery and El Millón raffle results here.
