    Hi.

    Is it 5 numbers you need to get and no lucky stars? I wonder what are the odds of winning?

    Thanks.

    Edit: Got it: 1 in 2,118,760

    The uk's version offer 1,000,000^ for getting five, via their 'Hotpicks' version of this. However slightly more expensive 1.50^ and don't get anything for 4balls (^gbp).

    However... Pick 4 in hotpick, and get 30k (instead of 2k).

    Getting 4 in the regular fully-fledged EMs will only get you a handshake, ..well €76 according to previous results prize breakdown.

    If you gave me €17.50 for Friday night’s draw I would have 2 choices
    a) 7 chances at winning (or sharing) €110,000,000 or
    b) 5 chances at winning (or sharing) €110,000,000 and 5 chances at winning €500,000
    I know what I would choose !!
    a a a all the way!

    This week is a funny one considering fx rates and the uk lotto(s).
    With the current live € flirting with .90500gbp, there are a couple of higlights if you can either:
    i) Travel Nordie ii) Have a good VPN and/or iii) relative with win-comission pre-agreement:

    uk regular lotto is 'rolldown' today (3balls = 100, instead of normal 30), with OTE 12.4m (but 59 balls).
    uk EM has added x20m (mm) Friday jackpots, on top of the r/o £96m.

    From jacools other thread have mentioned a lull around the high teens (not 18), and moreso on the low 20's ranges, esp the well-liked #22.

    There is a 6mth window in which to wait for fx re-normalisation (0.8650) for Euro changeback,
    and that may well depend soley on a post-hardexit(Oct) Trump deal.
