EuroMillions Predictions

The EuroMillions is one of the biggest lotto game in Europe due to the fact that it offers its punters big life-changing jackpot prizes. The lottery has been in existence for 16 years after it was launched on 7 February 2004. When the lottery was launched, it was only available in the UK, France and Spain, and other lotteries from countries like Austria, Belgium, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portuguese and Switzerland later joined in October the same year. Punters have two chances of playing this lottery every week and there have been big jackpot winners over the course of the game’s history and so far, only three winners have walked away with the previous maximum jackpot of €190 million which has now been increased to $250 million. Once the EuroMillions jackpot has reached its maximum and no winner is drawn, the jackpot will remain at the maximum for the next drawing, but funds will be added to the prize in the next tier down where there are winners.
