Explained: Odds of winning the EuroMillions
The life-changing jackpot is hard to scoop. With between 80 to 100 million people purchasing a ticket for a EuroMillions draw each week, it proves stiff competition.
But punters only have a 1 in 139,838, 160 chance of bagging the top prize.
Matching five numbers and one star has odds of 1 in 6,991,908.
There is a 1 in 22 chance of matching two numbers in the draw.
The approximate overall odds of winning a prize in EuroMillions are 1 in 13.
According to the EuroMillions website, the chances of winning the UK Millionaire Maker game can be estimated as 1 in 1,900,000.
But winning in this game depends entirely on the number of the payslips sold, so the odds therefore fluctuate.
