The EuroMillions is a European-based lottery with drawings held twice a week on Tuesday and Friday at 21:00 SAST. Fixed payouts are awarded for 13 different winning combinations except for the jackpot, which depends on the number of tickets sold with a minimum amount of €17 million (approximately R338 128 338). The amount rolls over to the next drawing if no jackpot is won to create an even larger jackpot up to a maximum amount of €250 million (approximately R4 972 475 560).

The EuroMillions underwent big changes in February 2020 related to the game’s prize structure. The jackpot cap increased from €190 million (approximately R3 779 081 425) to €200 million (approximately R3 963 118 000) and more money is given to the top prize in every draw. The amount of Superdraws will also increase from the usual two times per year to three times per year.

The Superdraws are planned once there is enough money in the EuroMillions reserve fund. The fund receives 10% of the common prize fund up until a total of five draws and then 18% in every drawing after that until the jackpot is won.
