EuroMillions HotPicks game got launched on 25th January 2018. It is a different lottery-type game from the main lottery game. The main Euromillions draw is available in nine European countries, but the Euromillions HotPicks option is only available to players in the UK.
EuroMillions HotPicks Draw Details
The HotPicks game offers additional prizes to the main draw of between £10 and £1 million. While these are substantially less than the guaranteed prize jackpot of £11 million on the main EuroMillions draw, the Euromillions HotPicks does cost less to play.
The HotPicks draw is separate from the main Euromillions game, but the numbers picked during the draw every Tuesday and Friday determine Hotpicks winners.
To play, you have to decide which numbers are between 1 and 50 that you wish to use for the Euromillions HotPicks draw and then you have to decide which of the five games you will play.
You then have to choose if you will be playing in the HotPicks draw on a Tuesday, Friday or both. Each HotPicks Lottery draw takes place at 20:40 GMT.
How HotPicks Numbers & Odds Work
When it comes to the HotPicks numbers, only the five main balls get used for this supplementary game. Unfortunately or fortunately, that means the two Lucky Stars do not get included.
Hopicks boasts five different games that can get played, and these get named after the HotPicks numbers that you choose to play.
- Pick 1 – match one Euromillions number to win
- Pick 2 – match two Euromillions numbers to win
- Pick 3 – match three Euromillions numbers to win
- Pick 4 – match four Euromillions numbers to win
- Pick 5 – match five Euromillions numbers to win
Of course, the more Euromillions HotPicks numbers that you play and match, the higher the prize value available to you in a game.
When it comes to the prizes paid out to players, the average percentage of the sales in payout decreases as the HotPicks numbers matched increases:
