A special feature of the Euromillions game is the roll-down. This rule means that the jackpot will be played in the second winning class as soon as it reaches the maximum amount of 190 million euros and no winner has been determined in the first draw / P>
If no one gets the first win in the subsequent play, a forced distribution of the prize money to the successful lottery players takes place in the second winning class. For the following play, the jackpot is set back to the initial starting amount of 15 million euros.
The lottery companies have the possibility, at their own assessment, to launch special plays. In the last few years, the jackpot has been regularly increased to the top-notch winning amount.
