Euro MillionsEuro Millions: €190m EuroMillions lottery jackpot will be won tonight, no matter whatRating:

Odds of winning slashed to 1 in 7 million

The EuroMillions jackpot of €190 million (US$209 million) will have to be won on Tuesday night no matter what happens, with the odds of claiming at least a share of the top prize effectively falling from 140 million to 1 to a considerably more manageable 7 million to 1 due to a never-before enforced rule.

The current jackpot has been rolling over since July 23rd and this week for the first time in the 15-year history of the game, it will have hit its maximum allowed limit of €190 million on five consecutive occasions.

As a result, if in Tuesday night's draw no player matches the five numbers from the main panel plus an additional two so-called Lucky Star numbers — which is the normal requirement for winning the jackpot — it will have to be shared at the next prize tier at which there are winners.

That will most likely be among those who match the five numbers from the main panel plus one lucky star number.

The odds of matching five numbers plus two lucky stars is almost 140 million to one while the odds of getting five main numbers plus one bonus number are closer to just under 7 million to 1.

On September 24th, the first occasion the draw was capped at €190 million there were three winners at the second from top tier with each one willing more than €5 Million while last Friday there were eight people who picked five numbers plus one of the two lucky star numbers.

All eight won €2.5 million each.

EuroMillions is a multi-country game is currently available to players in Andorra, Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Monaco, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

For people who don't live in a EuroMillions country, the only option for participating in a drawing is to use a quality lottery ticket butler service to buy EuroMillions lottery tickets online.

To play EuroMillions, choose five numbers between 1 to 50, plus two "Lucky Star" numbers between 1 and 12.  You win the jackpot by matching all the numbers correctly, or win one of 12 additional lower-tier prizes by matching other combinations of numbers.

Drawings for EuroMillions are on Tuesdays and Fridays at approximately 8:30 pm GMT. The winning numbers are published at Lottery Post, minutes after the drawing takes place.  You can find the lottery results at the United Kingdom Lottery Results page, the Ireland Lottery Results page, or the Multi-Country Lottery Results page at the popular lottery website.

        Guess I will just have to wait for the next €190 million jackpot to play.

          That sounds about right, $200 million is plenty. As a fisherman would say"  pull up whatever is biting on your line & cast away."

            A little off-topic: Is one governed by a timeout when responding to a message in their private inbox? Meaning, does the 8 or 12 minutes apply there as well before going dark?- Inquiring minds want to know.

              Reminds me of the Michigan and Mass games that had a roll-down amount. The secondary prizes are based on percentages and will be interesting to see how much higher they will be if nobody wins the jackpot.

                Weird to say the least. I know that when l switch from my cellphone to a laptop, things change. There is no “ time out.” I have begun to post stuff, gone off to get something for say 15 mins & returned to the same page & posted/ no complications. Yet when l posted stuff in my private mailbox without so much as taking a breath, when l pressed “ send” that message disappeared. If there is one thing l know, it’s to press SEND. I have even trained my one Rottweiler to get me a cool one from the fridge, the other dog wants to hear nothing of it.
