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:
|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.
