This is the only case in which the biggest Euromillions prize is distributed among the correct winners of the second category


In these last two years the euromillions draw It has experienced some great milestones. On July 8 of this same year, the limit imposed on the boat was exceeded and reached 230 million euros. Now this maximum is set to this amount, thus being the largest amount that can be won in this draw.

This does not mean that the prize cannot reach higher figures. According to the regulations of the Euromillions the limit may increase in the future when one of the players manages to win the jackpot of 230 million euros, then it will be when it will increase by 10 million for each time up to 250 million euros.

But this is not the only news who is interested in meeting the regular players. Since that last millionaire draw, the State Lotteries and Gambling administration indicated in a statement that the way of distributing the prizes was going to change when certain circumstances occurred that could cause there to be no winners for several weeks in a row.

Winners who do not match the numbers

This method tries to avoid what happened on July 8, where after several weeks no player managed to match the draw numbers. They went until three consecutive occasions without success, so the boat was frozen. According to Loterías y Apuestas del Estado, this figure remains in play for four consecutive draws. “In the event that at the fifth draw there were also no winners of the first category, the pot will be split between the next lower“, they point out.

This means that if no one in this European draw manages to match the five numbers and two stars that make up the Euromillions ticket, the prize will go to be distributed among the second category, that is, those who have only matched five numbers and one star. And if there are still no winners, the following categories will continue.

The game of Euromillions is divided into up to 13 categories depending on the number of stars or combinations that are correct. For this reason, it is possible earn a good amount of money, even if you don’t match the full number of the main jackpot. The other possibility of becoming a millionaire is thanks to Additional EuroMillions draw known as ‘El Millón’, which is played automatically by having a ticket and which appears as an alphanumeric code. A total of one million euros is awarded and there is always a winner.
