This Friday evening, FDJ is putting into play the largest jackpot observed in 2022. 158 million euros will be offered to whoever finds the right combination. We explain to you why the French are favored for the draw.
Last Tuesday, no one found the correct combination of the EuroMillions draw. FDJ is thus putting an even bigger prize pool into play on this Friday evening, May 29, 2022. With 158 million euros to be won, not counting the guaranteed million euros from My Million, it is the most important jackpot put into play during this year 2022.
The French are particularly privileged for EuroMillion draws because they are the only ones to benefit from My Million. In addition to the fact that this Friday’s prize pool is abnormally high, it is obvious that this European lottery draw is going to cause a stir.
If the idea of playing EuroMillion has been on your mind for some time, this end of April is exceptional. Since the beginning of the year, the winners have been regular, which has not favored the large jackpots. With 158 million euros to be won this Friday, it’s the right time to get started.
Why play EuroMillion this Friday?
As you most certainly know, each EuroMillion draw is independent. The probability of winning the jackpot is the same with every draw, regardless of the amount that is wagered. That’s why players tend to wait for big prize pools – and they’re right. The same probability of winning, but a much bigger jackpot!
Last year, there were several jackpots close to or above 200 million euros that fell. Several French people have won them, which proves that the EuroMillion is a very popular draw in France. If the French FDJ supervises the organization of this European lottery, there are however organizations in each of the participating countries which manage the gambling.
In France, you can play the EuroMillion via the network of tobacconist partners or on the internet. Clearly, if you’re playing on the internet, that’s where you’ll have the most flexibility. First of all, it saves you a trip to a tobacconist (and maybe even two, if you collect your winnings). Then you can place your bet in seconds and get the results faster.
To play the EuroMillion online, it’s here:
On the FDJ site, you have access to all the games promoted by the operator. In addition to the EuroMillion draw, this will also allow you to play Loto or scratch games, for example. You also have access to options that you will not have in a physical store. For example, for the EuroMillions, you have access to the popular MultiChances which allows you to take position on 600 grids in parallel.
My Million, an exclusively French bonus
In France, FDJ gives a serious advantage to EuroMillion players. This is an advantage not found in other European countries where the lottery is available. My Million is a secondary draw which is included in the purchase price of a single EuroMillion card. This draw takes place a few minutes before the official draw for the great European lottery.
While EuroMillion does not always give a winner (this is why the prize pool increases from draw to draw), My Million guarantees a winner. And not just any since he will receive a million euros guaranteed this Friday evening. For example, when you placed your bet on the FDJ site for the EuroMillion draw, you will receive a random code.
This code is your entry ticket for the My Million draw. On your receipt, you will therefore have the 5 numbers and 2 stars that you ticked for EuroMillion, but you will also have this multi-digit code. It is only displayed for players in France. Each of the EuroMillion grids gives you such a code which has been randomly generated.
Then, FDJ will come and draw lots for a code from among all these random codes: the one to whom this code will belong will walk away with one million euros. My Million offers a much higher probability of success than the EuroMillion draw, and this prize pool is guaranteed. In the end, even if you don’t find the combination to walk away with the mega jackpot of 158 million euros, there is a non-zero probability of winning this My Million.
Maximize your chances in the draw
The first thing to have a chance of winning the EuroMillion draw is to participate. And precisely, you have until 8:15 p.m. this Friday evening April 29 to place your bet. If you no longer have time to go to a tobacconist, you will need a few seconds to play on the official FDJ website. If you pass this time limit, it will no longer be possible to participate.
To maximize your chances of success, you can use the MultiChances option which is exclusively available on the FDJ website. In addition, the Etoile+ option guarantees you a chance in 4 of winning something. It costs 1 euro more than the default grid (which is 2.50 euros) and that’s a real bonus. Finally, we also remind you that you can tick more numbers (and stars) for a small additional cost. The grid will be more expensive but the probability of success will also be greater.
What are the numbers that will fall this Friday for the EuroMillions draw of 158 million euros? It is impossible to predict because each draw is made independently. It is therefore possible that the figures are the same as for last Tuesday’s draw… or not! You are free to tick the boxes manually or automatically, it will be the same.
