EuroMillions Plus was launched in June 2007 in Ireland as a supplementary game played alongside the main EuroMillions draw, creating more chances for Irish players to win a chunk of prize money. Paying just €1 extra gives your five main EuroMillions numbers another opportunity to win €500,000 in a separate draw held on the same night.
You can only play EuroMillions Plus if you are entering EuroMillions; it is not offered as a standalone game. By ticking the Plus box when buying your tickets for the main game, you will also enter the same five main numbers into the additional EuroMillions Plus draw, where they could win you one of these three prizes:
|Matched Numbers||Winnings||Odds of Winning|
|5||€500,000||1 in 2,118,760|
|4||€2,000||1 in 9,417|
|3||€20||1 in 214|
EuroMillions Plus prizes are fixed, meaning you will still receive €500,000 even if multiple players match all five numbers, as long as the total of all prizes awarded in the draw does not exceed €3 million. If this exceptional circumstance occurs, the value of the prizes will be amended accordingly depending on the number of winners. EuroMillions Plus jackpots do not roll over.
Draws take place twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays, with the deadline for ticket sales set at 7:30pm and online sales closing at 7:25pm. EuroMillions Plus tickets are available online and at authorised retailers across Ireland. The Advance Play option allows you to purchase entries that will be entered into up to eight draws in a row.
EuroMillions Plus winners have 90 days from the winning draw to make their claim, and those who have bought physical tickets must ensure their ticket is stored safely as it is the only proof of purchase accepted when claiming a prize. If you played online, you'll automatically receive an email notifying you of your win, although you will still need to claim the prize within 90 days or you will lose out.

EuroMillions Plus is a fun way to add to the excitement of playing EuroMillions, providing another chance to bank half a million Euro even if you failed to match a single number in the main game!
