A EuroMillions lottery system is nothing more than a deliberately planned approach to playing the game, and no EuroMillions system (apart from playing every possible combination of numbers – something that would require 116,531,800 entries) can ever help you to pick the right numbers at the right time. Of course, it is also true that the more tickets you purchase the more chance you will have of being lucky enough to win a prize of some kind, so we now present one of the simplest systems that we know of, which we have cleverly named The Simple System for EuroMillions.
The Simple System is based on the fact that every line of numbers entered into the game has a 1 in 13 (approximate) chance of winning a prize, and the approach is extremely straightforward – simply buy 13 tickets for every draw! This won’t guarantee that any of your tickets will win a prize (the 1 in 13 statistic is, after all, just an average figure) but it will give you 13 chances of winning as opposed to just 1 chance that you would get from a single entry, so it is definitely worth considering. If you play the game in the UK you would also have 13 chances of winning the Millionaire Raffle prize!
Now you don’t have to buy 13 tickets as an individual if you don’t want to. You could just as easily form a small lottery syndicate of friends, family members or work colleagues (see our EuroMillions Syndicates article for more details). This would allow each member of the syndicate to pay for just a ticket or two and the syndicate could then purchase 13 tickets as a group. You would then agree to share any prize money that is won between you.
For example, if you had a syndicate of 13 members you could each invest the cost of one entry per draw. That wouldn’t break the bank of any individual member, but collectively you would have 13 chances of winning a prize. Of course, if you wanted to be a bit more adventurous you could each invest for two tickets per draw and buy 26 entries for the group as a whole. There would still be no guarantee of success, but you would have a much better chance of winning a prize than you would as an individual buying just one or two entries. And of course, you just might land a jackpot of €15 million, €30 million or even more!
How you choose the numbers for your tickets is up to you (or your syndicate) to decide, but if you really want to keep things simple, buying Lucky Dip entries or using our Random Number Generator would help you to do that.
And there you have it – The Simple System for EuroMillions. It isn’t guaranteed to win you a jackpot, but it won’t hurt your chances and it’s a great way to keep things interesting! Good luck!
