Can I Claim Prizes Won Abroad?
In the same way that there are no barriers to playing in another country, there are also no restrictions on claiming prizes in a different nation. However, there are a couple of things to consider.
You can only claim prizes in the country in which you bought your ticket. This means that, if you play lines in a draw that takes place after you return home, you would have to fly back to your holiday destination to pick up the cash. This will be fine if you win the multimillion-Euro jackpot, but is certainly not cost-effective if you are due a €5.30 payout.
Secondly, three of the EuroMillions nations tax their winners, which might be a surprise if you usually play in a country that doesn’t. Portugal, Spain and Switzerland withhold sums over certain values on EuroMillions prizes, and you can find out more on the Playing Abroad page.
Yes, you can play the game online from anywhere in the world on theLotter. You don’t have to be in a EuroMillions country to play. All you have to do is log in and you can play online.
Until what time can you play EuroMillions?
You can play the game up until the cutoff time, which is 20:30 CEST. That’s just 15 minutes before the draw takes place. If you’re playing online, remember that you can only play up until a few hours before the draw.
How many countries play the EuroMillions?
The EuroMillions is a pan-European lottery played in nine countries – Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
Can you play EuroMillions in advance?
Yes, you can. On theLotter, you can opt for a Multi-Draw package, which gets you in the game for the following draws (you choose how many) or you can choose a subscription to make sure you don’t miss another draw.
