Are the odds in your favour?

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.

In order to win the cash prize, players need to match all five main numbers and both lucky star numbers.

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.
