What is Euromillions Belgium?

EuroMillions wants to become the biggest lottery in Europe, and definitely seems to reach its goal. It has the big lotteries in the United States as its example. Especially Mega Millions and Powerball are incredibly popular in this country. It comes as no surprise that the motto of EuroMillions is ‘become scandalously rich’. It has some great Jackpots.

Changes in Belgium

Since the first EuroMillions draw in 2004, several elements have changed. For example, the lottery has changed the profits in every category. Another change is the number of draws. First it took only place on Friday, but since 2011 it’s also organized on Tuesday.

So twice as much excitement in the week! Besides that, a thirteenth category has been added in which you need to have two correct numbers and since a couple of years the matrix has 11 stars instead of 9. In 2016 the matrix was changed again, from 11 to 12 stars.

Belgium Ticket prizes

The prize of a ticket in the EuroMillions lottery has become a bit more expensive. Since last year a ticket costs € 2,50 instead of € 2. You pay € 2,20 to participate in the lottery and 0,30 for an extra lottery.

My Bonus in Belgium

When you play EuroMillions in Belgium, you automatically enter the My Bonus Draw. This is a digital lottery draw organised by the National Lottery exclusively for players participating in Belgium. The aim: to ensure more winners from Belgium.

An interesting part of the lottery is that the National Lotteries keep a part of the total revenue to organize their own lotteries. Belgium is a good example of that. The country organizes a special lottery called “My Bonus’ besides the basic lottery. This give you an extra chance to win money. Every week about 600 players win the nice amount of € 500. Multiple times a year more than a 1000 people win € 10

Multiple prizes and chance of winning
During the additional lotteries multiple prizes can be won, and only the sold lottery tickets count. So tickets that aren’t purchased a not a part of the draw. This makes a big difference, because all prize money goes out. However, it also means that your chance of winning is not clear. It depends on the number of tickets that are sold. It’s much easier to calculate your chance of winning when all lottery tickets are part of the draw, which is the case for the traditional Lottery.
