Как принять участие в лотерейной игре евромиллионс (euromillions) на территории рф | big lottos

EuroMillions Game Options Available Online

Buying your EuroMillions tickets online, you also gain access to some exciting game options that make the game even more fun and that actually increase your chances of scooping one of the big prizes. Here are the main options you have on theLotter:

Syndicates – An alternative to the standard ticket is purchasing a share in a EuroMillions syndicate. This means you participate in the game together with a group of players owning a large number of tickets, but paying for only a share of the cost. If one of your tickets is a winner, the prize will be split by the group according to the shares each member has purchased. Syndicates are the fastest way to boost your EuroMillions odds!

Bundles – Can’t decide between buying your very own EuroMillions ticket and getting a share in a syndicate? On theLotter, you don’t have to! You can play with both options for a better price! That’s right! Bundle packages get you an individual ticket and a share in a syndicate for a discounted price! You get a better price for experimenting with your game!

Systematic Forms – You can buy EuroMillions tickets with all the possible combinations of 6-10 numbers to increase your winnings. If you match the winning numbers for EuroMillions secondary prizes, you will have them on a lot of tickets, which means you win more prizes. It’s just like having your very own multiplier!

ЕвроМиллионы – это наиболее крупная общеевропейская лотерея. Ее история начинается в Париже. Так как именно там, в 2004 году стартовал первый тираж. Эта лотерея, безусловно, вне конкуренции и является лидером среди аналогов, так как нигде больше вы не увидите такой огромной суммы джек-пота и более высоких шансов на выигрыш.

Изначально после создания ЕвроМиллионы участниками были только три страны – Франция, Испания и Англия. Но теперь, же в ней участвуют девять государств: Австрия, Бельгия, Франция, Ирландия, Люксембург, Португалия, Испания, Швейцария, Великобритания. С течением времени система лотереи ЕвроМиллионы совершенствуется, набирает все большие и большие обороты и вместе с этим пополняется количество ее участников

Каковы правила?

Правила лотереи предельно просты в понимании. Для того чтобы участвовать в ЕвроМиллионах всем участникам предстоит определить для себя пять цифр от 1 до 50 и пару счастливых звезд от 1 до 11. Чтобы получить хотя бы один из множества призов им нужно отгадать хотя бы два шара. Для того, чтобы стать обладателем главного приза нужно отгадать все семь шаров. В этой лотереи имеется тринадцать уровней вознаграждения, суммы награды зависят от призового фонда в процентах. Главный же приз это 32% от него.

Участвовать в лото может любой гражданин одной из стран-участников, возрастом обычно старше восемнадцати лет (в зависимости от страны, например в Великобритании, разрешается участие с шестнадцати лет).

Вероятность выиграть 1 из призов примерно 1 к 13-ти, а вероятность получить главный приз 1 к 116 531 800, даже это довольно неплохо, учитывая, что его наименьшая сумма будет составлять 15 миллионов евро. Если обладатель джек-пота не будет определен, то всю эту сумму переносят на следующий тираж, из-за этого суперприз, обычно сильно превышает минимальную сумму. Но хоть и ограничения по числу переносов нет, есть максимум для суммы джек-пота, а именно 190 миллионов евро. За всю историю лотереи Евромиллионс этой суммы достигли лишь дважды. В один из них Великобританцам Адриану и Джилиану Байфорду удалось выиграть очень много денег.

Какие призы?

Как уже говорилось, у размера джек-пота есть свой минимум, а именно 15 миллионов. Случается, что его выигрывают несколько человек, в таких случаях его делят поровну, если же, напротив, никто не выигрывает, то сумму переносят на следующий тираж, это называется аккумуляцией. Благодаря этому величина призового фонда достигает невероятных размеров. 10 августа 2012 года и 24 октября 2014 года были достигнуты пределы. По сей день, не было, больше ни одного случая, чтобы лимит снова был достигнут.

Случается, что правила относящиеся к джек-поту терпят изменения, поэтому не стоит забывать следить за правилами и их изменениями, в особенности, когда главный приз переносят в тираж с большим призовым фондом. Налогообложение вашего выигрыша зависит от страны, в которой был куплен билет.

Каковы шансы на победу?

В добавку к обычным тиражам, в этом лото проводятся супер-тиражи, они имеют мега джек-пот. У таких специальных тиражей правила отличаются, общего с обычными тиражами в них только то, что в них есть возможность появления избытка призового фонда. Проводятся такие тиражи обычно во время важных событий. Супер-тираж зачастую проводят, во время годовщины лотереи. Специального расписания проведения супер-тиражей нет, но в среднем их проводят пару раз за один год.

EuroMillions Taxes vs Other Lotteries

EuroMillions offers some of the largest jackpots in the world, and the fact that prizes are not taxed in six of the nine countries makes it stand out even more in comparison with some of the other big lotteries.

American games such as Powerball and Mega Millions, for example, have tax obligations at both a state and federal level, so although these games regularly offer the biggest jackpots out of any lottery in the world, the payouts can end up significantly lower than the pre-draw estimate.

New Yorkers suffer heavier taxes than anyone else in the U.S. In August 2018, one player from the state won a Powerball jackpot advertised at $245.6 million, but they ended up walking away with a significantly lower sum. They opted to take a cash lump sum of $147 million, which worked out as a final payout of $99.4 million – around 40% of the advertised jackpot – after taxes had been deducted.

In EuroMillions, you will be given the specified amount with no deductions if you play in a country which does not tax winnings, such as the UK. The UK player who anonymously claimed £121 million in April 2018, for example, received a much larger payout than the $245 million Powerball winner, even though at first glance it would seem they had not won as much.

Horaire de diffusion

À l’origine, un seul tirage de l’Euromillions était effectué chaque semaine, les vendredis soirs. Ce n’est que depuis le 10 mai 2011 que les joueurs ont l’on a pu voir apparaître un deuxième tirage de la loterie européenne chaque semaine, effectué cette fois-ci les mardis. À ce jour, il n’existe toujours que deux tirages de l’Euromillions chaque semaine, et les jours n’ont pas été modifiés : les mardis et vendredis.

Du fait de son internationalité, les résultats et rapports de gains ne sont pas nécessairement divulgués au même moment. Pour autant une chose est sûre : c’est à 20h précise que les prises de paris son clôturées, afin de permettre aux différentes sociétés organisatrices d’envoyer leurs prises de jeu à la Française des jeux, société centralisant celles-ci, et effectuant le tirage dans ses locaux.

Chaque pays a donc son processus et son horaire de diffusion des résultats. En Belgique par exemple, on peut déjà découvrir le montant de la prochaine cagnotte avant même que le résultat ne soit dévoilé, tandis que c’est l’inverse pour l’Irlande.

En France, le tirage du jeu My Million est effectué aux alentours de 20h40 et diffusé sur la chaîne TF1 depuis 2014 (anciennement France 2). Le tirage de l’Euromillions est quant à lui diffusé entre 22h et 23h en fonction de la grille des programmes télévisés. Les résultats sont en parallèle diffusés sur le site officiel de la FDJ, et accessibles en replat sur la plateforme de la chaîne TF1.En savoir plus sur les heures de tirages de l’Euromillions My Million

How to Play

Playing EuroMillions Plus is very similar to playing EuroMillions, but without the Lucky Stars. For an additional €1 per line, you can opt in to the Plus game when you purchase your main EuroMillions entries for the Tuesday draw, Friday draw, or both.

To add Plus to your ticket, you will need to select your EuroMillions numbers as usual and then tick the ‘Add EuroMillions Plus’ box located on the play slip. You will not need to pick any additional numbers, as those on your ticket are entered into both draws (with the exception of the Lucky Stars).

Five numbers are randomly drawn, with prizes awarded if your original EuroMillions numbers match three or more of the five ’Plus’ numbers drawn.

Prizes

There are three prize tiers available, with a guaranteed top prize of €500,000 for matching all five numbers.

Prize Tier Prize
Match 5 €500,000
Match 4 €2,000
Match 3 €20

Advance Play

The Advance Play option allows you to purchase your tickets up to eight draws in advance by simply ticking the Advance Play box for the number of draws you wish to participate in (e.g. one, two, four, six or eight). Any prizes won from an Advance Play ticket are claimed in the usual way.

Общие сведения

В этой лотерее участвуют несколько стран. Изначально это были Великобритания, Франция и Испания. С  8 октября 2004 года к ним присоединились Бельгия, Австрия, республика Ирландия, Португалия, Люксембург, Швеция. Сегодня среди соучредителей лотереи 13 стран.

Розыгрыш претерпевал некоторые изменения. Структура игры менялась с течением времени. В 2011 году добавился второй еженедельный розыгрыш. Количество «звездных» чисел  увеличивались с 9 до 11.

Лотерея знаменита  тем, что ее еженедельные разыгрываемые призы  достигают 2-х миллионов, а иногда и больше. Запредельные суммы, разыгрываемые здесь, побуждают участников рисковать и искать удачу. Еженедельно несколько человек становятся миллионерами вот уже 14 лет.

К игре в данную лотерею могут быть допущены только лица старше 18 лет. И они должны жить в стране лотереи. Розыгрыши проводятся в Париже в 20.45 по местному времени (каждые вторник и пятницу).

Что из себя представляет лотерейная игра ЕвроМиллионс?

Игра ЕвроМиллионс была организована 3-мя государствами Европы:

  • Испанией;
  • Великобританией;
  • Францией.

В течение ее лотерейной истории присоединились еще ряд стран: Ирландия, Португалия, Лихтенштейн, Австрия, Бельгия, Остров Мэн, Монако, Андорра, Люксембург.

Призовой фонд лотереи распределяется следующим образом:

  • 28 процентов учредители направляют на реализацию благотворительных программ;
  • 12 процентов выделяют в счет государства;
  • 5 процентов выплачивают в качестве комиссий реализаторам лотерейных билетов;
  • 4,5 процента расходуется учредителями на расходы по игре;
  • 0,5 учредители оставляют себе.

Нечасто в современном мире азартных развлечений можно встретить организаторов, доход которых находятся в самом низу списка раздела призового фонда и при этом составляет минимальную сумму.

Так как лотерея мировая и армия ее поклонников исчисляется сотнями тысяч, то и призовой фонд, соответственно, очень большой. Отсюда и многомиллионные призы участникам.

UK Tax Implications

While there is no tax on lottery winnings in the UK, there are a number of important considerations to keep in mind if you are lucky enough to bank a substantial amount such as a EuroMillions jackpot.

Inheritance Tax

Inheritance tax (IHT) is paid when a UK resident dies and their estate is worth more than £325,000. Everything above that threshold will be taxed at 40 percent. If you win a large EuroMillions prize and your estate exceeds the £325,000 valuation, you should be aware of the rules regarding IHT and how it will affect your heirs.

It is very common for big winners to want to share their jackpot in some way, but if you want to make a gift without paying tax you must meet one of the following criteria:

  • Give the gift more than seven years before you die.
  • Give the gift to your husband, wife, or civil partner.
  • Give less than your annual allowance of £3,000.

The seven-year rule is in place to stop people from giving money away just before they die so that they can avoid IHT. As long as you live for at least seven years after making your gift, you can give as much as you want to whoever you want without it being liable for IHT.

If you were to die within seven years, the recipient would have to pay IHT based on a sliding scale. The rate of tax is the full 40% if there are less than three years between you giving your gift and dying, and then it goes down to 32% in years three to four, 24% in years four to five, 16% in years five to six and 8% if there are between six and seven years between your gift and your death.

Any gifts made to your spouse or civil partner are exempt from IHT, so it would not matter if you died within seven years. You can also give gifts to any registered charity without being liable for tax, along with some national organisations, such as the National Trust, universities or museums.

You can also take advantage of the £3,000 ‘gift allowance’ each year without incurring IHT. If you give away more than this amount and pass away within seven years, the recipient would have to pay tax. It is possible to carry over your leftover allowance from one tax year to the next, but only up to a maximum of £6,000.

Other Tax-free Gifts

You can also give smaller gifts of up to £250 to as many people as you want without them being subject to IHT, although this would not include anyone who has already received gifts totalling the whole £3,000 annual exemption.

Wedding gifts can also be exempt from IHT, but only if they are made before the wedding and there has to be proof that the marriage does go ahead. You can make wedding gifts of up to £5,000 to a child, £2,500 to a grandchild or great-grandchild or £1,000 to anyone else. You can also make gifts to help pay the living costs of an ex-spouse, an elderly dependent or a child.

Syndicates

Lottery rules in the UK stipulate that only one person can be paid a prize, so when playing in a syndicate it is essential to have a formal agreement in place to show to tax authorities. This will prove the money was not just a gift and that everyone is entitled to their share. Anyone playing in an informal syndicate should be aware that they may have to pay inheritance tax on the full amount if the syndicate leader dies within seven years of the prize money being shared.

Tax on Interest

Most people can earn some interest from their savings without paying tax, but this might not be the case if you win a large enough EuroMillions prize. While there is no tax on the initial sum paid into your account, it may be that the win starts to produce an income through interest. This will then be taxed as part of your normal income tax.

Taxes in Other EuroMillions Countries

If you win a EuroMillions prize in Austria, Belgium, France, Ireland or Luxembourg, you will not be taxed on your winnings, just like in the UK. However, winners will be taxed in Portugal, Spain and Switzerland.

In Portugal, any prize worth more €5,000 is taxed at a rate of 20 percent, while there is a levy of 35 percent in Switzerland on any winnings over CHF1 million. Spanish prizes of more than €40,000 are subject to tax at 20 percent.

You can only claim a EuroMillions prize in the country where you bought your ticket, so you will have to accept the local rules on tax even if you are not a resident of the country.

What to Do About Tax Issues

When you win a large lottery prize in the UK, you will have the chance to speak to experienced advisors who have guided other lucky players through what to do with their newfound wealth. They will be able to point you in the direction of financial experts and will recommend the most appropriate banks for you to open an account with based on your own circumstances.

With regards to the issue of IHT, it is a good idea to think carefully about the timing of any gifts you plan to make, and then keep a record of any payments. Your financial advisor will also speak to you about the tax on your interest and discuss possible investments to give you the maximum benefit. It may be a complicated topic, but any advice you receive will be tailored to your own personal situation and one very positive aspect is that your prize will not be subject to the same sort of tax laws as it would be in other countries.

Why Prizes Differ Between Currencies

The Euro is the base currency for EuroMillions as it is used by seven of the nine participating countries. When a jackpot is won in the UK the equivalent figure in pounds is paid out, based on the exchange rate on the day of the draw.

For non-jackpot prizes, the amount you receive in the UK is not worked out purely on the basis of the exchange rate. Instead, a formula is in place to take into account each country’s contribution to the game.

Each country that participates in EuroMillions contributes €1.10 into the Common Prize Fund, which is used to pay out prizes to all winners. Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund is the 50% of £1.74 from every EuroMillions ticket sold.

If, using the exchange rates on the day of a draw, Camelot’s contribution to the Common Prize Fund works out at less than €1.10, prizes paid out to UK players will be reduced to compensate for the shortfall. If, on the other hand, Camelot’s contribution amounts to more than €1.10, UK winners will receive comparatively bigger prizes than winners in other countries.

To put it simply, if £1.74 is worth less than €2.20, UK winners will receive smaller prizes than those in other countries. If £1.74 is worth more than €2.20, UK players will receive more. These rules ensure that prizes are always in line with how much each participating country contributes to the Common Prize Fund.
