Knowing the Best and the Worst Combination Should Help
Getting the right composition will surely give you the best shot possible at winning the EuroMillions. Of course, you don’t win any money by matching the pattern. But as a lotto player, you want to play with a sensible strategy and get closer to the winning numbers.
It’s extremely difficult to win the lottery. Lotterycodex has no power to change that fact. But Lotterycodex can help you be wrong less. The lottery should be fun. But at least be sensible when choosing your combinations and don’t waste your money on worthless combinations.
Here in Lotterycodex, we don’t say you increase your chance of winning by choosing the right composition. What we do say is that when you play the Euromillions, at least, be wrong less. Don’t waste your money on useless combinations. Lotterycodex patterns are here to guide you on that aspect. (Check out the Lotterycodex Calculators)

If you are playing blindly, there’s no guarantee you are not falling into one of these worst patterns in EuroMillions. So I propose that you should incorporate the use of probability theory in your playing strategy.
The benefits are apparent. First, you are confident that you are not wasting your money, and second, you get the best shot at winning the game.
The difference between the best and the worst is so huge. You don’t want to take it for granted.
We don’t say that those combinations under the worst group will not occur. We say that those combinations have the worst ratio of success to failure.
Tickets Purchased Outside the UK
It is only possible to collect a EuroMillions prize in the country where the ticket was purchased. Players who purchased an entry in another country must return there to claim their money. Below are the details for the length of time before prizes expire in each of the other eight participating countries:
|Country||Tickets Are Valid For||EuroMillions Operator|
|Austria||3 years||Österreichische Lotterien|
|Belgium||140 days||Nationale Loterij|
|Ireland||90 days||Irish National Lottery|
|Luxembourg||60 days||Loterie Nationale Luxembourg|
|Portugal||90 days||Jogos Santa Casa|
|Spain||90 days||Loterías y Apuestas del Estado|
Small prizes will be redeemable from any authorised retailer in the country. If you win a larger amount, or even the jackpot, then you will need to contact that country’s official operator for advice.
Only three of the nine participating countries charge taxes on lottery winnings:
- Spain — Prizes of €40,000 or more are taxed at 20%
- Switzerland — A 35% tax is owed on any winnings worth over CHF1 million
