Everything You Need To Know About The New EuroMillions HotPicks Game

UK lottery players will be able to enjoy a new game on Friday night with the launch of EuroMillions HotPicks. Offering prizes of up to £1 million and a variety of ways to play, HotPicks provides a fresh and exciting option which is set to create huge numbers of winners every week. Here’s what you need to know about the game:

When can you play?

EuroMillions HotPicks tickets went on sale on Thursday 25th January, with the first game taking place on Friday 26th. The game can then be played every Tuesday and Friday night.

How do you play?

EuroMillions HotPicks offers a choice of five different games. All you need to do is decide how many numbers you wish to select between 1 and 50. You can pick either one, two, three, four or five numbers.

The results are based on the numbers drawn in the main EuroMillions game. The only difference is that the Lucky Stars are discounted, and it is the five main numbers which form the full winning line in HotPicks.

To win a prize, you must match every number you select. For example, if you pick one number and it is drawn, you win a prize, but you do not win a prize if you pick two numbers and only one of them is drawn.

How much does it cost?

It costs £1.50 per line to play EuroMillions HotPicks.

What are the prizes?

The prize you win depends on which game you play. If you play Pick 5, you will win £1 million if all your numbers are drawn, while you can win £30,000 for picking four numbers and matching them all. If you want to play Pick 1 for a better chance of winning, you can pocket £10. Visit the EuroMillions HotPicks page for a full list of HotPicks prizes.

What are the odds of winning a prize?

The odds of winning range from 1 in 10 for the Pick 1 prize, up to 1 in 2.1 million for claiming the Pick 5 prize. The HotPicks page features the full rundown of prize odds. 

Can you play EuroMillions HotPicks without playing EuroMillions?

Yes. You can play EuroMillions HotPicks separately to EuroMillions, or enter both draws if you prefer.

How long do you have to claim prizes?

The claim period for HotPicks is 180 days, the same as every other UK National Lottery game. If you do not come forward in time, prizes will be donated to the Good Causes Fund.
