A triple rollover means that a EuroMillions lottery jackpot has eluded players for three draws in a row. When a EuroMillions jackpot isn’t won it is added to the jackpot fund for the next draw (as long as the total jackpot does not exceed €185 million). A triple rollover means that this has happened three times, and the resulting triple rollover jackpot for the draw that follows is always huge by any standards.
Triple rollovers give EuroMillions players the chance to win several times as much cash than they normally can for exactly the same outlay. A standard EuroMillions jackpot might give you a chance of winning €15 million, but after a triple rollover you could well be looking forward to a jackpot worth €55 million or more.
One way to make the most of the massive jackpots that triple rollovers make possible is by purchasing a few more tickets than usual. If you normally buy one EuroMillions ticket then buying two would double your chances of winning the triple rollover jackpot, and buying ten would increase your chances ten-fold!
Of course, the more triple rollover tickets you buy, the greater the risk is that you could lose one or more of them. For this reason it makes sense to play EuroMillions online so that you don’t have any paper triple rollover tickets to lose in the first place.
In all respects, participating in a triple rollover jackpot draw is exactly the same as participating in a regular EuroMillions draw: you need to pick five main numbers from the range 1 to 50 and two Lucky Stars from the range 1 to 9. If you match all of your selections to the official EuroMillions results then you will win the jackpot or, if there are several winners, a share of the jackpot. Because the rules are exactly the same in a triple rollover game, the odds of you winning are no less than they would be otherwise.
When all is said and done, triple rollovers help to create some of the most exciting EuroMillions games on offer. Although further rollovers can and do occur from time to time, the triple rollover tends to help the next jackpot break the €50 million barrier and, for that reason, the triple rollover is often viewed as something extra special.
