To win the euromillions lottery players simply need to match the 5 main numbers and the two lucky stars to the numbers chosen at random via the lottery machines.
By matching the 5 main numbers and 2 lucky stars players will scoop either a share in or the total jackpot prize fund. The odds of winning the euro millions lottery are 1 in 76,275,360.
The lowest odds of winning a prize with euro millions, which is for 2 main numbers and 1 lucky star is as little as 1 in 39.
With the odds of winning any prize at all being 1 in 24. However these odds will change in may 2011 when the new prize for matching 2 main numbers is introduced, and should reduce the odds of winning any prize down to 1 in 13.
At present it is estimated on average 1.9 million people win a prize per euromillions draw, again in May 2011 this according to camelot should change to 4.6 million people winning a cash prize.
