This Tuesday evening, the EuroMillion draw may allow one of the players to walk away with the jackpot of 215 million euros. In any case, at least one Frenchman will become a millionaire in this European lottery.
This EuroMillions draw on Tuesday, May 10, 2022 will generate extreme enthusiasm all over Europe. This lottery may reward one of the players with a jackpot of 215 million euros. This is a record amount that has not been seen before in 2022. To this, the French are participating in the My Million draw which will guarantee a new millionaire tonight.
Today, all the conditions are met to maximize your chances of (big) winnings for the EuroMillions draw. When the jackpot crosses the 200 million euro mark, the FDJ draw becomes a topic of conversation in all homes. If you want to play, the easiest way is to fill in an online grid. It will take you a few minutes if you don’t have an account.
Millions of players now place their bets on the FDJ site live. Why ? Because it’s faster, easier, more discreet and you have the information in preview. It should also be noted that certain features such as MultiChances are available exclusively on the internet. At tobacconists, you therefore have less chance of optimizing your bets.
How to take advantage of EuroMillions options?
The EuroMillion draw is not limited to a single simple grid at 2.50 euros. Certainly, this is the minimum amount you can invest. This allows you to tick 5 numbers and 2 star numbers. You then have a 1 in 13 chance of winning something. For the €215 million jackpot, you only have a 1 in 139 million chance of winning.
That said, if you want to maximize your chances of winning, there are options available. It will cost you a little more but you increase your probability of winning very significantly. In the end, the potential gain / risk ratio is much more to your advantage during such a EuroMillion draw.
The first method is to use the Star+ option. The latter is added to your EuroMillions grid if you add 1 euro to the amount (i.e. 3.50 euros in total for a simple grid). This small option has a huge advantage: the probability of winning something goes from 1 in 13 to… only 1 in 4. You therefore have a 25% chance of winning something on this draw of the day.
Then there are the MultiChances packs which are only available on the internet. By opting for the latter, you will diversify your risk for this EuroMillion draw as much as possible. If you are ready to share the jackpot with several people to pay less, the MultiChances is perfect: it allows you to take position on 660 or 1260 grids at the same time. All for 5 or 7.50 euros in all.
For the equivalent of 2 simple grids, you can position yourself on 660 grids of EuroMillions and My Million draws. Of course, the potential gain is more limited, but the probability of success is much greater. It is therefore in your interest to take this option if you want to leave with a sum this Tuesday evening.
My Million, an overly undervalued secondary draw
The EuroMillion draw with the 215 million euros at stake is obviously the one that will be talked about the most. That said, the French have privileged access to a second draw that is at least as interesting: My Million. The latter is reserved for French residents unlike the EuroMillion which concerns all the countries in Europe where the lottery is present.
My Million is a draw that takes place a few minutes before the EuroMillion draw. For each of the EuroMillions grids that you validate, FDJ assigns you a randomly generated code. This unique code serves as an entry into the French My Million draw. This also means that this second draw is included in the cost of a EuroMillion grid: you therefore have nothing to do.
This My Million draw is therefore logically available both at tobacconists and on the internet, via the FDJ website. In France, on average, 4 million grids are filled in for each EuroMillion draw. For this draw with 215 million euros at stake, we can expect at least double. So that gives you a chance of about 1 in 8 million of becoming a euro millionaire tonight. Once again, this probability will depend on the number of grids filled in France.
A lottery that benefits all French people
With the My Million bonus, the French have a real advantage over their counterparts. That said, everyone is in the same boat for the main EuroMillion draw on Tuesday evening 10. In recent years, it is mainly French people who have won jackpots over 200 million euros. For this draw, however, we cannot make a prediction on the result.
What is certain is that it is better to play now rather than when the lottery puts 17 million euros at stake (minimum guaranteed). Indeed, the probability is the same but the gain is much greater here. In addition, the gains of ranks 2 and 3 are also boosted, you can walk away with several hundred thousand euros in this case. As always, these amounts depend on the number of players who will find the near-correct combinations.
As for schedules, the cut-off time is at 8:15 p.m. As you know, tobacconists are usually closed at this time, so you will only have the online solution to play. On FDJ, it takes a few seconds to place your EuroMillion draw bet if you are a customer. If you are not yet, it will take you a few minutes at most. The FDJ site (including on mobile) is optimized to offer an excellent customer experience.
