EuroMillions Winners

Switzerland has now produced 17 jackpot winners since EuroMillions was launched in 2004, including two in the last four months. The last Swiss winner set a new national record for the country’s largest lottery prize when they bought a ticket in Zurich for the draw on Tuesday 19th December 2017 and ended up taking home CHF157 million (€135.3 million/£119.8 million).

Prior to December’s success, there had not been a Swiss winner since March 2014. Go to the EuroMillions Winners page to see a table of how many winners there have been from each country.

Jackpots in 2018

The EuroMillions jackpot was last won on Tuesday 13th March, by a player from Portugal who snapped up €61.5 million (54.6 million). Two ticket holders - one from the UK and one from Spain - also split a top prize of £155.5 million (€177.7 million) on Friday 23rd February.

The jackpot will now reset to €17 million (£14 million) for the next draw on Tuesday night, but it will not be long before another extraordinary nine-figure sum is on offer. A Superdraw has been scheduled for Friday 20th April, increasing the top prize to a guaranteed €130 million (approximately £113 million).
