Euromillions is a European lottery, carried out by the agencies in charge of the lottery in each of the participating countries. It consists of selecting 5 numbers from a table of 50 numbers (from 1 to 50) and two lucky stars from a table of 12 numbers (from 1 to 12). During the draw, 5 numbers and 2 lucky stars are drawn at random from two drums containing numbered balls. The drum containing the 50 numbers is called Stresa, and the one containing the 12 stars is called Paquerette.
The price of each bet is 2.50 euros.
Currently, there are two EuroMillions draws per week, one on Tuesday and one on Friday.
Drawings are held every Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. and Friday at 9:50 p.m. approx.

There are two main options to participate in Euromillions:
50 balls (numbers from 1 to 50) are inserted into the draw drum. During the draw, 5 balls are drawn to form the winning combination of the corresponding day.
Finally, from another drum with 12 balls (numbers from 1 to 12), 2 balls corresponding to the stars are drawn.
The minimum guaranteed jackpot in each EuroMillions draw is 15 million euros. If the jackpot is not won one week, it is accumulated for the next draw. In other words, the jackpot grows and grows every week!.
