Playing Abroad

You can play EuroMillions abroad if you are visiting one of the participating nations, but you will have to claim any prizes won on those tickets in the country in which you bought them. In addition, if you win cash amounts in three of the EuroMillions jurisdictions, you could find yourself liable for taxes on your prize. Here is the EuroMillions tax information you need to know:

Country Taxes
Portugal Any lottery prize won in Portugal that is worth more than €5,000 is subject to 20 percent tax.
Switzerland In Switzerland, lottery winnings over CHF1,000 are taxed at a rate of 35 percent, which is withheld from the initial prize by officials and is transferred to the Federal Tax Administration.
Spain Spain levies a tax of 20 percent on all lottery prizes above €2,500.

Additional Draws

As different nations offer their own supplementary games, playing EuroMillions in another country allows you the opportunity to win additional prizes. Discover more about a game by tapping the link below.

Draw Deadlines

As EuroMillions is a pan-European lottery, the time at which the draw takes place will differ due to the numerous time zones across the continent. Draws are held in Paris at 21:00 (CET), meaning that players in some of the participating countries face an earlier deadline by which to enter.

Here is a list of the different deadlines for buying EuroMillions tickets:

Country Draw Deadline
Ireland, Portugal, UK 19:30 (Tuesday & Friday)
Austria, Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Spain, Switzerland 20:30 (Tuesday & Friday)

Please note, if you are playing through a lottery concierge service the cut off time for entry will usually be a couple of hours before the actual draw deadline.

Playing EuroMillions Around the World

EuroMillions is a lottery that can be played and enjoyed all around the world. Thanks to lottery concierge services like theLotter and lottery betting sites such as Jackpot.com, players from across the globe can regularly take part in EuroMillions draws.

The two systems of play allow you to win the same EuroMillions prizes, but the way in which they work differ slightly. While a lottery concierge service sees a representative purchase a ticket on your behalf, Lotto betting allows you to place a wager on the outcome of a draw. You will receive exactly the same amount of money as those playing with a physical ticket and the odds of winning remain exactly the same.

Details of how to take part in EuroMillions draws using both methods are listed below:
