Euromillions in Spain

Spain, together with Great Britain and France, is one of the three founding members of the Euromillions, where the participation for the first time was possible on 13 February 2004. The bet for the Euromillions in Spain as in all other countries is EUR 2.00 for each game.

The Spanish lottery company offers you the participation by means of a system ticket. This possibility does not exist in all countries participating in the Euromillions. Another special feature is that Spain has also participated in the Eurojackpot since July 6th, 2012 and is therefore the only country in which the official Lotto association offers both community lotteries.
