Distribution of Revenue
The distribution of revenue from EuroMillions ticket sales is different depending on where you play the game. For instance, each participating country’s lottery has different rules on how much is set aside for good causes and each government requires a different amount of duty on the income received.
This is how the money taken in ticket sales is shared out in the UK:
|Therefore a £2.50 EuroMillions ticket is divided as follows:|
|30p||Government Lottery Duty|
|1.25p||Profit to Lottery Operator|
Sales from each EuroMillions draw in the UK raise millions of pounds, of which 50% is used to fund prizes. You can see how that money is divided between the different prize tiers at the Prizes page. The Good Causes Fund receives 28 percent of EuroMillions ticket sales, contributing to the £35 billion raised in total from all National Lottery games in the UK since it was launched in 1994.
