To win the jackpot, a player must match all five numbers and both Lucky Stars.
EuroMillions says the odds of picking the seven numbers correctly is one in 139,838,160.
But there are 13 different prize tiers, so if you match fewer numbers – you can still get a cash prize.
Overall, the odds of winning a prize in the Euromillions are roughly one in 13.
