Taxes on the Euromillions is a little more complicated than its U.S counterparts. This is because the Euromillions takes place in multiple countries at the same time that each have their own tax system.

What Happens if I Win?
When you win a jackpot you will have a two options as to how you would like to claim your winnings. The first is the most common, where jackpot winners’ are paid in 30 annual payments. However, after you win the jackpot and your prize is validated by the Lottery, you will have 60 days to choose the cash value of the prize instead of 30 annual payments.
Tips & Tricks For Increasing Your Odds:
The best way to increase your odds is to buy group game tickets. It’s pure logic & math. When you buy group game tickets you essentially ‘pool together’ your tickets and therefore up your odds immensely.
For example: If you wanted to buy a single ticket for a Euromillions draw it will cost you €2.50 offline, and anywhere up to €6 per ticket online. With a group game option you buy shares in a group of tickets online. 50 tickets could make up one group (groups can be anywhere from 30-100 tickets grouped together). This group of 50 tickets is then split into 100 shares and each share can be sold separately, this way the player can buy a share in a group of 50 tickets for a prices much cheaper, as little as €0.19 per ticket. If one of the group’s ticket is a winner then the winning amount will be split according to how many shares you have in the group.
So, if we have a group of 50 tickets, split into 100 shares and you buy 10 shares in the group, you own 10% of the group of 50 tickets. This means if the group of tickets has a winner in it, say €100,000.00, you would receive 10% of this total, meaning you would win €10,000.00.
