Features of Euromillions

Of course, you can see at Lottoland that the amount of the jackpot is several times less than that of the more advanced American competitors. However, the undoubted advantage that they lack makes Euromillions more attractive for players. The main advantage of this lottery is that there are absolutely no tax deductions from the winnings, and the amount is paid instantly. However, this rule does not apply to all countries, so you should find some rules of taxation in your state at TheLotter.

Another feature of Euromillions is the availability of a limit on the jackpot, the size of which is 185 million Euros. In the event that, because of the increase, the amount exceeds this threshold, it simply translates as an additive to the next jackpot, so the odds on winning euromillions jackpot are larger.

The lottery assumes 13 levels of winnings, the sums of which are calculated in percentage with respect to the total prize fund. The main prize is traditionally 32% of it.

Any resident of the country in which EuroMillions is held can take part in the drawing and buy ticket at Playhugelottos. His age should be more than 18 years, although, for example, in the UK in the lottery can take part from the age of 16.

Odds of winning Euromillions

The Odds are estimated by experts about 1 to 13, and the probability of winning the main prize 1 to 116531800. Such a large figure should not frighten potential lottery participants, since the smallest amount in this case will be 15 million Euros. If after the drawing is completed, the jackpot holder is not determined, then the unplayed amount is transferred for the next time. Thus, the chances of winning jackpot are always greater and its minimum value is higher.
