How does it work, will I get a printout of my ticket? Do I have to be a resident of a European country to play? I heard theres no taxes in some countries, but will I pay local and government taxes here in the U.S. And what if I win a small prize like $20, how do I claim that? Thanks....

      Yes, you have to be living with us good looking europeans to play it.

      Good things come to those who wait.

        To play Euromillions Lottery you have to be a resident of one of the nine participating countries. Those online website who offer the lottery outside the participating countrie are scams as you can't really claim the price. You'll have to proof to have an address in one of those countries Switzerland , United Kingdom, France, Spain,Austria, Portugal, Luxembourg, Belgium. I know some who play online from Germany and Italy or cross the boarders to one of the nine countries but what they do is actually wasting there hard earnd money. 

        Sorry for my English I'm a native Swiss -German speaker :-)

          I have hears something similar. If someone in the United States were to win online, the jackpot prize would never be paid out due to their "rules".

            Hi.

            My first post here at LP.

            Euro Millions is a game shared by many countries in europe, not my country though. I believe that Euromilions and other sites that sell this game in Europe have their rules of not allowing US players is because they simply cannot pay an US citizen. I'm sure they would if they could.

            But you have your MM and Powerball, highly taxed for sure but still huge jackpots compared to here in Sweden.

              I forgot to say that it's impossible to play on any official site offering EuroMillions, even for me, if you not reside in the actual country. however, the unofficial sites that have similar names on web pages they include us other european residents but also exclude US residents. So even if one are to question these sites trustability, they still wont take your money if you are from US.
