New Euromillions Jackpot Cap

Our favourite lottery, Euromillions, is making a change as to how they cap their top jackpots! Find out more about the new Euromillions jackpot capping procedure on

Euromillions is no stranger to change with at least two major Euromillions changes having taken place last year in May: the addition of a Euromillions Tuesday draw (bringing the total number of Euromillions draws per week to two) and the addition of two extra star numbers. Overall the odds of winning a prize improved from 1 in 24 to 1 in 13.

This month the Euromillions Lottery will be making a change to the way in which the jackpot cap works. For those lottery players that don’t know, the jackpot ‘cap’ is the level at which a lottery jackpot stops growing, irrespective of any further rollovers taking place.


So what is the deal with the new Euromillions Jackpot Cap?

•    On Friday 17 February the EuroMillions jackpot cap will be set at a permanent €190 million Euro

•    The new Jackpot rule will stop any two consecutive draws offering that maximum €190 million jackpot

So, if no lottery players are able to match all 7 lucky Euromillions numbers two weeks in a row, the Euromillions jackpot prize fund will be rolled down to the next highest prize tier, provided of course that there are winners in that tier, otherwise it will roll down further

Here is an example of how the new Euromillions Jackpot cap will work:

•    The Euromillions jackpot reaches €190 million after a number of jackpot rollovers

•    This capped Euromillions draw then rolls over again

•    The jackpot for the next draw will remain at €190 million Euros

•    This 2nd capped Euromillions draw is still not won the jackpot fund will be shared by lottery players at the next winning tier - more than likely the 2nd tier where the players have matched 5 balls + 1 star number tier

There you have it folks, the new Euromillions Jackpot cap which will be coming into effect shortly. We wish you all the best of luck when you play Euromillions – and here’s to you taking home all €190 million Euros!

Tell us what the FIRST thing is that you would buy if you won the maximum Euromillions jackpot of €190 million Euros. The best responses will each win 5 FREE Euromillions vouchers.

This is a difficult question, but I will try to answer. Novel could be written about it. I do not know where to start suddenly. because there are a lot of important things. A lot thing on my mind. First, pay of any debt, bill, it would be fantastic. Then I would buy a own house, a sports car, and tickets to the Champions League final. It would be LEGENDARY to be there in the Champions League final. So it is difficult to emphasize one thing, that what at first, it is very difficult. BUT I'd buy a good quality of a Dom Perignon champagne and celebrate. :) I drink myself drunk. :) and the next day would start a new world, Amen, good luck to Everyone.

The other day when I along with my wife went to DLF Emporia Mall in Vasant Kunj, New Delhi, we saw in a showroom a beautiful lady's coat which both of us liked immensely. We went to the sales girl to enquire about the price. It was Indian Rupees 275,000, a cool 5500 US dollars. It was made from special Tibetan Lamb's wool. Imagine How nice it would be to own a whole mall like that if I were to win a $ 190 million in the Euromillion Lottery. Sometimes dreams come true!

Posted by Rekha (9/02/2012)

It will be a very big surprise for me in my life. I will be very happy after winning euromillion jackpot and i will make my dreams to come true. But this is only a dream and it is very difficult to become true because matching all the numbers that is 5 main numbers and 2 star numbers is very difficult ,only very few lucky people can do this, who's lady luck is shinning and on whom the goddess fortuna is very happy . All the people don't have that luck. Those who have that type of luck they are very happiest people of the world and in other words i can say that they are the very favourate people of god and god like them very much. In true words i can say that they are the real sons or daughters of the god and god had made them to enjoy in this world. In my words they are the real actors or actress in the eyes of god.All the lottery winners have a very good luck and all the people don't have that luck , so i think that winning lottery is a dream only and i don't know whether i can win a lottery jackpot or not. If god likes me then it can happen that i can win some lottery jackpot. If i can win lottery jackpot then i will very much thankful of god, that god likes me and made my dream to come true.

Posted by Ygr+z (9/02/2012)
