A brief guide to EuroMillions

EuroMillions. It couldn't be easier. The following video shows you how it works.

EuroMillions is a classic lottery. It has been available in Switzerland since 2 October 2004. Besides Switzerland, it is also played in the founding countries the UK, France and Spain as well as in Portugal, Ireland, Belgium, Austria and Luxembourg. On Tuesday and Friday, 5 winning numbers from 1 to 50 and two stars from 1 to 12 are drawn. The object of EuroMillions is to correctly pick as many winning numbers as possible. The more numbers and stars you pick correctly, the higher your winnings. If you choose all the correct numbers and stars in one pick, you win the jackpot.

The additional 2nd Chance draw is open exclusively to players in Switzerland. Every EuroMillions pick is automatically entered with the same five numbers in a second prize draw. Immediately after the EuroMillions draw, another five winning numbers from 1 to 50 are selected in the 2nd Chance draw. At least three correct numbers are needed to win a prize. The stars chosen for a EuroMillions pick are not relevant for the 2nd Chance draw.

To be able to play EuroMillions on swisslos.ch, you must:

  • be at least eighteen years of age,
  • be resident in German-speaking Switzerland or Ticino,

Super-Star – an extra chance to win a prize

Super-Star is a supplementary game offered by EuroMillions that entails playing with a five-character combination of letters and numbers. The object of Super-Star is to correctly pick as many letters and numbers as possible. You win a prize with just one correct letter. If the combination of letters and numbers you play completely matches the combination that is drawn, you win the main prize.

You can play up to four Super-Star combinations at the same time. Every Super-Star combination costs CHF 2.00.

If you do not like the suggested Super-Star combination, just click on the symbol next to it, and the system will propose a different combination of letters and numbers.
