Why does no one win the EuroMillion?

Like the Loto, the EuroMillion draw is random and independent. This means that each draw has nothing to do with the previous one, nor with the next. Each time, under the supervision of a bailiff, 5 numbers (out of 50 numbers) and 2 stars (out of 12 stars) are drawn at random. The results of the previous draw do not indicate future results. This also means that there is a non-zero probability that the same numbers could fall.

The EuroMillion is all about probability. For example, you have a 1 in 139 million chance of finding the correct draw result. If the odds are slim, there is still a 1 in 13 chance of winning something in this European lottery. Moreover, if you check the Star+ option, you even have a 1 in 4 chance of walking away with a win.

Now if you’re wondering why no one has won since March 18, the answer is simple: it’s a matter of probability.† No one was lucky enough to find the right combination of numbers and stars. It is extremely rare for the prize pool to reach such an amount. Since the beginning of 2022, these amounts have always been very limited. They have never exceeded 130 million for this series.

The maximum bet amount in a EuroMillion draw is €210 million. For each of the draws that don’t have a winner, the pussy rises from 15 to 25 million euros. In other words, if no one finds the right combination on Friday evening, May 6, the EuroMillions jackpot that will be put into play next Tuesday will be at its maximum.

Do we have to give up for this new EuroMillions draw? Absolutely not ! Indeed, the bigger the prize pool, the more it is worth entering. Knowing that the odds of success are always the same (regardless of the amount of the draw), you might as well focus on the biggest jackpots. With 195 million euros at stake this Friday, the public will react very presently.

How do you maximize your chances of winning this lottery?

By default, the odds of winning the EuroMillion jackpot are low. That said, there are techniques to increase the odds of winning in this European lottery. In addition, the French have an advantage (thanks to FDJ overseeing the lottery) that players from other countries do not have: My Million.

My Million is a secondary draw (also random) reserved for French customers only. This draw is included in the cost of the EuroMillions grid, so you don’t need to withdraw any extra money. As a reminder: a EuroMillion net costs 2.50 euros as standard without options. With this amount you actually have two participations: EuroMillions and My Million.

Unlike the EuroMillions big draw, My Million is a guaranteed winner draw. Each EuroMillions grid is associated with a randomly generated code (which you can find on your EuroMillions entry ticket). FDJ will then draw a lottery ticket among all of them and the winner will leave this Friday evening with a check for one million euros. Regardless of the grid result for the main EuroMillions draw, the customer can walk away with this check.

If you know that there are an average of 4 million EuroMillions grids filled with every draw in France, so you have a 1 in 4 million chance of becoming a millionaire this Friday night. As this My Million draw is independent of the main EuroMillion draw, you can combine the 2 chances of success.

In addition to My Million, there are other tricks to increase your chances: with Etoile+, for example, you increase your chance of success (for 1 euro more). There is also the option to diversify your risk with the MultiChances, a feature only present on the official FDJ website. If you play at the tobacconist, it will not be possible to take advantage of it. With a grid of 5 euros you can take a position on 660 or 1260 grids with the MultiChances. You will earn less, but the chances of success are significantly higher.

A bonus for this EuroMillions draw

If the French are already favored with this double EuroMillions and My Million draw, there’s one more bonus up for grabs for this draw. Indeed, FDJ is organizing a competition called “Rendezvous à St Barth” where 3 people will be drawn to win a trip for 2 to the Caribbean island (flight in Business Class, 7 nights in a 5 star hotel, etc.) . It’s the icing on the cake, and it’s still independent of the other two draws.

This competition is not exclusive to the EuroMillion draw. You just need to place 10 euros on one of the FDJ games (exclusive on the website) between May 2nd and May 8th. In other words, this May 6 draw is perfectly in line. For every 10 euro slice you place, you will receive an extra ticket. Each player is entitled to a maximum of 10 participations, so a total bet of 100 euros.
