November 2009 – Changes to EuroMillions Format
On 7th November 2009, EuroMillions’ 11rollover limit was replaced by a jackpot cap of €185 million. In the event of the jackpot reaching €185 million, it would remain there for one additional draw before being rolled down to winners in the next prize tier. Additionally, the jackpot cap would be increased by €5 million once reached.
The price of a EuroMillions ticket also increased from £1.50 to £2. The price increase heralded the launch of a new supplementary raffle game, ‘Millionaire Raffle’, on 13th November. Included in the EuroMillions ticket’s new price, UK players would get the chance to win a guaranteed €1 million every week by matching the raffle code printed on their ticket with the code revealed during a EuroMillions draw.
Changes Summary
 Rollover cap replaced by €185 million jackpot cap, increased by €5 million each time it is reached
 New supplementary ‘Millionaire Raffle’ introduced in the UK
 Ticket price increased from £1.50 to £2.
Lotterycodex Patterns and The Best Combinations In EuroMillions
Earlier, we discussed that any questions you ask about the lottery must be a combinatorial and probability problem to solve.
So to know the probability of 12345, we ask the question “What is the probability of a combination composed of threeodds and twoeven numbers?”
However, this is not the only question we can ask, we can also ask:
“What is the probability of a combination composed of five low numbers?”
The problem though, two different questions may provide different probability results.
When you deal with lowhigh and oddeven patterns as two separate probability analyses, you will encounter serious contradiction.
To illustrate the contradiction, 12345 is one of the best combinations under oddeven patterns.
But then we know that under the analysis of the lowhigh patterns, such combination is one of the worst ones.
So combinatorial mathematics and probability theory can be very confusing if you are not careful.
So what is the solution?
The solution is Lotterycodex patterns
Using Lotterycodex patterns, we put these two analyses together into one combinatorial equation.
So now to solve the probability of the combination 12345, we ask this question instead:
“What is the probability of a combination composed of threelowodds and twoloweven numbers?”
That’s how Lotterycodex patterns can help you along the way. However, combinatorial calculation with probability analysis can be very complex so I created the Lotterycodex calculator to make everything much simpler and faster.
For simplicity, I have divided EuroMillions patterns into three groups.
Best Group  Middle Group  Worst Group 
Patterns #1, #2  Patterns #3 to #28  Patterns #29 to #56 
Two patterns  26 patterns  28 patterns 
As you notice, there are only two best patterns out of 56 patterns in EuroMillions 5/50 game.
For those of you who want to delve deeper into the nittygritty aspect of calculation, I don’t hide the formula. I discuss how these patterns are obtained in detail, so I invite you to check the free guide.
The table above is very straightforward. If you want to win the EuroMillions, then focus on patterns #1 and #2. And forget about the rest of the patterns.
The problem, almost 90% of the lotto players, do not know the worst combinations that will put their money down the drain. For example, many people pick their combinations that belong to the worst group.
There are millions of these worst combinations in EuroMillions. How do you know your combinations are not one of these worst types?

How to Play
Playing EuroMillions Plus is very similar to playing EuroMillions, but without the Lucky Stars. For an additional €1 per line, you can opt in to the Plus game when you purchase your main EuroMillions entries for the Tuesday draw, Friday draw, or both.
To add Plus to your ticket, you will need to select your EuroMillions numbers as usual and then tick the ‘Add EuroMillions Plus’ box located on the play slip. You will not need to pick any additional numbers, as those on your ticket are entered into both draws (with the exception of the Lucky Stars).
Five numbers are randomly drawn, with prizes awarded if your original EuroMillions numbers match three or more of the five ’Plus’ numbers drawn.
Prizes
There are three prize tiers available, with a guaranteed top prize of €500,000 for matching all five numbers.
Prize Tier  Prize 

Match 5  €500,000 
Match 4  €2,000 
Match 3  €20 
Advance Play
The Advance Play option allows you to purchase your tickets up to eight draws in advance by simply ticking the Advance Play box for the number of draws you wish to participate in (e.g. one, two, four, six or eight). Any prizes won from an Advance Play ticket are claimed in the usual way.
September 2016 – EuroMillions Overhaul
September 2016 saw sweeping changes made to the EuroMillions format, including the introduction of new supplementary games in six countries and a €2 million increase to the minimum jackpot. The price of entry was increased as follows:
Austria  €2.00  €2.20 
Belgium  €2.00  €2.50 
Ireland  €2.00  €2.50 
Luxembourg  €2.00  €2.50 
Portugal  €2.00  €2.50 
Spain  €2.00  €2.50 
Switzerland  CHF3.00  CHF3.50 
UK  £2.00  £2.50 
The price change covered the cost of new raffles and supplementary games implemented across Europe. With the new games came the introduction of a Europewide raffle event, the European Millionaire Maker. The first European Millionaire Maker raffle took place on Friday 28th October 2016, with 25 winning codes selected.
Another big change was the introduction to the game of a 12th Lucky Star; the odds of winning in each prize tier changed as a result:
Match 5 + 2 Stars  1 in 116,531,800  1 in 139,838,160 
Match 5 + 1 Star  1 in 6,473,989  1 in 6,991,908 
Match 5  1 in 3,236,995  1 in 3,107,515 
Match 4 + 2 Stars  1 in 517,920  1 in 621,503 
Match 4 + 1 Star  1 in 28,774  1 in 31,076 
Match 3 + 2 Stars  1 in 11,771  1 in 14,126 
Match 4  1 in 14,387  1 in 13,812 
Match 2 + 2 Stars  1 in 882  1 in 986 
Match 3 + 1 Star  1 in 654  1 in 707 
Match 3  1 in 327  1 in 314 
Match 1 + 2 Stars  1 in 157  1 in 188 
Match 2 + 1 Stars  1 in 46  1 in 50 
Match 2  1 in 23  1 in 22 
The overall odds of winning a prize remained at 1 in 13. 
The UK’s popular ‘Mega Friday’ promotional draw — which saw multiple £1 million raffle prizes and luxury noncash prizes awarded on the last Friday of each month – also saw a major change. The event was expanded to offer prizes in two consecutive draws and was renamed ‘Mega Week’.
All changes came into effect as of Saturday 24th September 2016, with the very first Mega Week beginning on Tuesday 27th September. Ten raffle prizes of £1 million plus a 100day roundtheworld trip were given out, and a special €130 million Superdraw took place on Friday 30th September. Mega Week ran for nine months, with the last Mega Week draws taking place on Tuesday 25th and Friday 28th June 2017.
Changes Summary (General)
 Minimum jackpot increased from €15 million to €17 million
 European Millionaire Maker raffle introduced
 Ticket price increased in all participating countries
 The number of draws in which the jackpot could stay at its cap before triggering a rolldown increased from two to five

Knowing the Best and the Worst Combination Should Help
Getting the right composition will surely give you the best shot possible at winning the EuroMillions. Of course, you don’t win any money by matching the pattern. But as a lotto player, you want to play with a sensible strategy and get closer to the winning numbers.
Lotterycodex has no power to change the underlying probability. But Lotterycodex can calculate all the possible choices so you can make the right choice.
The lottery should be fun. But at least be sensible when choosing your combinations and don’t waste your money on worthless combinations.
You don’t increase your chance of winning by choosing the right composition. But when you play the Euromillions, you want to play with the best ratio of success to failure. So don’t waste your money on useless combinations. Lotterycodex patterns are here to guide you on that aspect. (Check out the Lotterycodex Calculators)
I encourage you to check the free guide to learn more about how we calculate everything. Lotterycodex is the only lottery calculator that combines combinatorics and probability calculation in one system.
If you are playing blindly, there’s no guarantee you are not falling into one of these worst patterns in EuroMillions. So I propose that you should incorporate the use of probability theory in your playing strategy.
The benefits are apparent. First, you are confident that you are not wasting your money, and second, you get the best shot at winning the game.
The difference between the best and the worst is so huge. You don’t want to take it for granted.
We don’t say that those combinations under the worst group will not occur. We say that those combinations have the worst ratio of success to failure.
How to Beat the Odds of the EuroMillions Game
Of course, you cannot beat the odds of EuroMillions. But thankfully, math can help. There’s a way to increase your chances of winning the game.
The only way to increase your chances of winning is to buy more tickets.
But buying more tickets is useless if you’re making the wrong choices. It’s not OK to choose 12345, and 23456, and 4647484950.
I will explain why.
But first of all, I must ask you to forget about hot or cold numbers. For the longest time, people mistakenly believe that if a number frequently occurs in the past, the same number is bound to be drawn more often in the future. This belief must be corrected.
Now, let’s proceed.
All combinations in EuroMillions 5/50 have the same probability.
It means that 12345 is equally likely.
Play 246810, and that is equally likely too.
Perhaps your combination is 510152025, this combination has the same probability as any other in the universe of Euromillions’ possible combinations.
The truth, all combinations have equal chances.
But think about this. Consider more tickets where all numbers are picked in the form of straight combinations:
 12345
 23456
 34567
 …
 4647484950
If I ask lotto players to spend their money on the above combinations, the surest response I will get is “no way.”
And why not?
That’s because people don’t trust their understanding of probability.
“Gut feeling” dominates the logic
You see, if you are confident that all combinations have the same probability, why be afraid to play all those combinations.
In other words, while you believe that all combinations have the same probability, there’s part of you that says buying “multiple tickets where all combinations are straight numbers” cannot be right.
But gut feeling shouldn’t be superior to mathematics.
If you want to win the EuroMillions game, you have to have a strong mathematical foundation.
And mathematics says:
There’s a big difference between having lots of wrong combinations and having the right combinations.
But how do we explain this mathematically?

EuroMillions Syndicate Winners
There are several notable EuroMillions syndicate wins throughout the history of the game:
 A family syndicate from County Dublin claimed the biggest ever lottery prize won in Ireland when they won €175 milion on Tuesday 19th February 2019.
 On Friday 1st July 2016, a syndicate of Dublin bus drivers won a EuroMillions jackpot worth €23.8 million. Each of the 22 members of the group received just over €1 million and even arrived by bus to pick up their cheques!
 On Friday 6th November 2009, a syndicate of seven office workers in Merseyside won a whopping £45.5 million when their entry was one of two British tickets that split a jackpot of £91.1 million. Each member received £6.5 million.

January 2012 – Change to Jackpot Cap
On 12th January 2012, the EuroMillions jackpot cap was frozen at €190 million. Previous rules set in 2009 stated that each time the jackpot cap was reached, it would be increased by €5 million. The last cap increase had taken place in July 2011, when Scottish couple Colin and Chris Weir won a capped €185 million (£161.6 million) jackpot – the largest lottery prize ever won in the UK at the time.
A second rule was changed alongside the jackpot cap; the top prize could remain at its maximum size for two draws, instead of one draw, before being rolled down to the next prize tier.
Changes Summary
 Jackpot cap increase rule scrapped; jackpot cap frozen at €190 million
 Jackpot rolldown deadline increased from one draw after reaching cap to two draws after reaching cap
The OddEven Patterns In the EuroMillions
Oddeven patterns do have an impact on your number selection strategy. You fail to choose the right composition of oddeven numbers, and you fail to win even before you play.
The Euromillions number field can be divided into two sets:
Odd = {1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,19,21,23,25,27,29,31,33,35,37,39,41,43,45,47,49}
Even = {2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20,22,24,26,28,30,32,34,36,38,40,42,44,46,48,50}
The table below shows the complete oddeven patterns in EuroMillions with their corresponding probability:
Patterns  Probability  Calculus 
3odd2even  0.3256621797655230  32.5662179766%

The table shows that the first two are the best ones to play in EuroMillions. To help you figure out the best and the worst ones, I further divide the patterns into three groups:
Best Patterns  Fair Patterns  Worst Patterns 
3odd2even  1odd4even  Allevennumbers 
2odd3even  1even4odd  Alloddnumbers 
As a EuroMillions player, you should either play the 3odd2even or the 2odd3even patterns.
Do you want proof?
Let’s peek at the past EuroMillions results and see how the game follows the dictate of probability.
