How to Play

Playing EuroMillions Plus is very similar to playing EuroMillions, but without the Lucky Stars. For an additional €1 per line, you can opt in to the Plus game when you purchase your main EuroMillions entries for the Tuesday draw, Friday draw, or both.

To add Plus to your ticket, you will need to select your EuroMillions numbers as usual and then tick the ‘Add EuroMillions Plus’ box located on the play slip. You will not need to pick any additional numbers, as those on your ticket are entered into both draws (with the exception of the Lucky Stars).

Five numbers are randomly drawn, with prizes awarded if your original EuroMillions numbers match three or more of the five ’Plus’ numbers drawn.

Prizes

There are three prize tiers available, with a guaranteed top prize of €500,000 for matching all five numbers.

Prize Tier Prize
Match 5 €500,000
Match 4 €2,000
Match 3 €20

Advance Play

The Advance Play option allows you to purchase your tickets up to eight draws in advance by simply ticking the Advance Play box for the number of draws you wish to participate in (e.g. one, two, four, six or eight). Any prizes won from an Advance Play ticket are claimed in the usual way.

Comment jouer à Euromillions My Million

Pour tenter sa chance à la loterie européenne, plusieurs solutions s’offrent au joueur. La première étant bien sûr la plus connue : se rendre dans un point de vente officiel afin d’y cocher sa ou ses grilles, puis de les faire enregistrer en échange de 2,5 euros par grilles. Le joueur a également la possibilité, s’il n’a pas d’inspiration, ou tout simplement s’il souhaite laisser le hasard décider jusqu’au bout, de demander à jouer des grilles dites « flash ». L’ordinateur sélectionnera alors 7 numéros au hasard pour chaque grille. Les points de vente agréés sont souvent des bureaux de tabac, mais vous en retrouverez également à l’accueil de certaines galeries marchandes par exemple.

La deuxième solution pour jouer à l’Euromillions est plus récente, mais séduit de plus en plus de joueurs : il s’agit du jeu en ligne. Simple et sécurisé, celui-ci se veut rassurant. En effet une fois passée l’étape un peu rédhibitoire de l’inscription (à l’aide d’un justificatif d’identité et de votre RIB), le jeu en ligne offre de nombreux avantages : le premier bien sûr étant d’être assuré de ne pas perdre sa grille une lis celle-ci jouée. Un autre avantage étant celui de pouvoir mettre en place des prises de jeu récurrentes, de sorte de ne pas rater un tirage par distraction, ou encore d’être averti sur son mail en cas de gain. Si cette deuxième solution vous intéresse, nous vous invitons à lire comment jouer à l’Euromillions My Million sur internet, notre guide complet vous expliquant tous les avantages de cette méthode, et vous assistant dans vos démarches d’inscription.

EuroMillions Taxes vs Other Lotteries

EuroMillions offers some of the largest jackpots in the world, and the fact that prizes are not taxed in six of the nine countries makes it stand out even more in comparison with some of the other big lotteries.

American games such as Powerball and Mega Millions, for example, have tax obligations at both a state and federal level, so although these games regularly offer the biggest jackpots out of any lottery in the world, the payouts can end up significantly lower than the pre-draw estimate.

New Yorkers suffer heavier taxes than anyone else in the U.S. In August 2018, one player from the state won a Powerball jackpot advertised at $245.6 million, but they ended up walking away with a significantly lower sum. They opted to take a cash lump sum of $147 million, which worked out as a final payout of $99.4 million – around 40% of the advertised jackpot – after taxes had been deducted.

In EuroMillions, you will be given the specified amount with no deductions if you play in a country which does not tax winnings, such as the UK. The UK player who anonymously claimed £121 million in April 2018, for example, received a much larger payout than the $245 million Powerball winner, even though at first glance it would seem they had not won as much.

How My Million Works

A My Million code is automatically generated for every line of EuroMillions numbers purchased. There is no extra cost to enter the game.

Shortly after the main EuroMillions draw, one unique My Million code will be selected at random from all of the codes purchased for that particular draw. From time to time, special editions of My Million are held in which multiple prizes of €1 million are given away.

The odds of winning a My Million prize will vary from draw to draw as they are dependent on the number of EuroMillions tickets purchased, rather than correctly matching the numbers drawn in the main EuroMillions game.

UK Tax Implications

While there is no tax on lottery winnings in the UK, there are a number of important considerations to keep in mind if you are lucky enough to bank a substantial amount such as a EuroMillions jackpot.

Inheritance Tax

Inheritance tax (IHT) is paid when a UK resident dies and their estate is worth more than £325,000. Everything above that threshold will be taxed at 40 percent. If you win a large EuroMillions prize and your estate exceeds the £325,000 valuation, you should be aware of the rules regarding IHT and how it will affect your heirs.

It is very common for big winners to want to share their jackpot in some way, but if you want to make a gift without paying tax you must meet one of the following criteria:

  • Give the gift more than seven years before you die.
  • Give the gift to your husband, wife, or civil partner.
  • Give less than your annual allowance of £3,000.

The seven-year rule is in place to stop people from giving money away just before they die so that they can avoid IHT. As long as you live for at least seven years after making your gift, you can give as much as you want to whoever you want without it being liable for IHT.

If you were to die within seven years, the recipient would have to pay IHT based on a sliding scale. The rate of tax is the full 40% if there are less than three years between you giving your gift and dying, and then it goes down to 32% in years three to four, 24% in years four to five, 16% in years five to six and 8% if there are between six and seven years between your gift and your death.

Any gifts made to your spouse or civil partner are exempt from IHT, so it would not matter if you died within seven years. You can also give gifts to any registered charity without being liable for tax, along with some national organisations, such as the National Trust, universities or museums.

You can also take advantage of the £3,000 ‘gift allowance’ each year without incurring IHT. If you give away more than this amount and pass away within seven years, the recipient would have to pay tax. It is possible to carry over your leftover allowance from one tax year to the next, but only up to a maximum of £6,000.

Other Tax-free Gifts

You can also give smaller gifts of up to £250 to as many people as you want without them being subject to IHT, although this would not include anyone who has already received gifts totalling the whole £3,000 annual exemption.

Wedding gifts can also be exempt from IHT, but only if they are made before the wedding and there has to be proof that the marriage does go ahead. You can make wedding gifts of up to £5,000 to a child, £2,500 to a grandchild or great-grandchild or £1,000 to anyone else. You can also make gifts to help pay the living costs of an ex-spouse, an elderly dependent or a child.

Syndicates

Lottery rules in the UK stipulate that only one person can be paid a prize, so when playing in a syndicate it is essential to have a formal agreement in place to show to tax authorities. This will prove the money was not just a gift and that everyone is entitled to their share. Anyone playing in an informal syndicate should be aware that they may have to pay inheritance tax on the full amount if the syndicate leader dies within seven years of the prize money being shared.

Tax on Interest

Most people can earn some interest from their savings without paying tax, but this might not be the case if you win a large enough EuroMillions prize. While there is no tax on the initial sum paid into your account, it may be that the win starts to produce an income through interest. This will then be taxed as part of your normal income tax.

Historique de l’Euromillions

L’Euromillions est un jeu de hasard de type loterie créé en 2004 à l’initiative de la Française des jeux, l’opérateur en charge des jeux d’argents en France. Son premier tirage est effectué le 13 février 2004, et compte alors 3 pays fondateurs : la France, le Royaume-Uni et l’Espagne. Ce n’est que quelques mois plus tard, le 8 octobre 2004 exactement, que les 6 autres pays participants que nous connaissons aujourd’hui rejoignent l’aventure : l’Autriche, la Belgique, l’Irlande, le Luxembourg, le Portugal et enfin la Suisse, pour un total de 9 pays.

Du fait de son internationalité, les gains de cette loterie européenne sont payables en trois devises différentes : l’Euro, la livre sterling et le franc suisse. Pourtant, les cagnottes communes sont constituées en euros, les sociétés organisatrices étant en charge de la conversion de ces devises, ainsi que des risques éventuels liés au change jusqu’à la remise des prix, en s’assurant de disposer des provisions nécessaires.

À l’origine, le prix d’une grille de l’Euromillions était fixé à 2 euros. Néanmoins trois des sociétés organisatrices ont fait le choix d’ajouter un tirage supplémentaire associé à la loterie européenne et exclusif à leur pays, faisant au passage augmenter le coût d’une prise de jeu. La première société à avoir ajouté un tirage exclusif à son pays est l’Irlande. En juin 2007, celle-ci lance le « Euromillions Plus », qui propose aux joueurs une chance supplémentaire de remporter la somme de 500 000 euros. Cette option est optionnelle, et n’influe pas nécessairement le prix d’une grille pour un joueur.

La deuxième à avoir pris cette initiative est l’Angleterre, qui en novembre 2009 décide de lancer le « Millionnaire Raffle », faisant passer le prix de ses grilles de 1,5 à 2 livres. La France suivra sur le même concept 5 ans plus tard, en lançant le jeu My Million le 4 février 2014, faisant quand à elle passer le prix de ses grilles de 2 à 2,5 euros. Ces deux jeux sont en tout point similaires, à savoir coupler un tirage au sort supplémentaire au tirage habituel, celui-ci faisant automatiquement un millionnaire garanti dans son pays. Ces deux derniers sont tous deux obligatoires, et ont donc modifié le prix d’une grille Euromillions dans leurs pays respectifs.

Chaque grille jouée à l’Euromillions équivaut à une chance sur 139 millions de remporter le gros lot, et dans la dernière version du jeu, le joueur à 93 chances sur 100 de ne pas rembourser sa mise. Pour ainsi dire un joueur a plus de chance de se faire frapper par la foudre deux fois dans sa vie que de remporter le jackpot. C’est cette difficulté, couplée à la quantité de joueurs (214 millions aux dernières statistiques) qui poussent les gains à être aussi élevés, aussi souvent remis en jeu, et donc à attirer toujours plus la convoitise.

What to Do About Tax Issues

When you win a large lottery prize in the UK, you will have the chance to speak to experienced advisors who have guided other lucky players through what to do with their newfound wealth. They will be able to point you in the direction of financial experts and will recommend the most appropriate banks for you to open an account with based on your own circumstances.

With regards to the issue of IHT, it is a good idea to think carefully about the timing of any gifts you plan to make, and then keep a record of any payments. Your financial advisor will also speak to you about the tax on your interest and discuss possible investments to give you the maximum benefit. It may be a complicated topic, but any advice you receive will be tailored to your own personal situation and one very positive aspect is that your prize will not be subject to the same sort of tax laws as it would be in other countries.
