EUROMILLIONS is a popular lottery game that launched in February 2004 in Paris.
Nine European countries participate in the game that has now had over 1,000 draws.
When must EuroMillions be won?
According to the regulations, Euromillions must be won when the jackpot has stayed at £185 million cap for four consecutive draws.
The fifth draw at the cap is a Must Be Won draw which means that all the prize money will be awarded even if there is no one to match all five numbers and both Lucky Stars.
In that case, the jackpot money moves to the next tier where there are winners, for example, Match 5 plus one Lucky Star.
If there are no winners in that category either, the jackpot rolls down to the next category.
The first Must Be Won draw at the jackpot took place on October 8, 2019.
The record of £170million is held by a player in the UK who wanted to remain anonymous.
How many times can EuroMillions jackpot roll over?
The original rules of EuroMillions allowed the jackpot to roll 11 times before the Must Be Won draw.
New rules introduced in 2016, stated that the top prize would stay at its cap for four draws before having to be won in the next draw.
Is there a limit on the EuroMillions jackpot?
Back in 2009, a jackpot cap of £156 million was introduced which later became £170 million.
In 2020, the jackpot cap was increased to £170 million and it was decided it would stay for four draws until the Must Be Won draw.
According to the new rules, the jackpot cap can be increased by £8 million after each time it's won.
When is EuroMillions draw?
The EuroMillions draw takes place in Paris at 8.45pm local time – which is 7.45pm in the UK, every Tuesday and Friday.
