EuroDreams is a transnational lottery with long-term benefits for winners, as the top prizes are paid out over a number of years rather than all at once. The first draw will take place on Monday 6th November. Find out more about the game and see the winning numbers as soon as they are available.
Estimated EuroDreams jackpot:
€20,000 a month
EuroDreams is jointly organised by the same national lotteries that operate EuroMillions, so you can buy tickets from all the same countries or online.
Play the annuity lottery from the UK, France, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Portugal, Ireland, Switzerland or Luxembourg. It costs €2.50 per play.
Draws will take place on Monday and Thursday nights, so you must just make sure that you purchase your tickets before the cut-off time.
EuroDreams was approved in 2023 after the participating national lotteries of EuroMillions proposed an annuity-style game. The idea was to offer a Europe-wide game that would offer better odds of winning than EuroMillions, with a jackpot that would provide long-lasting financial rewards instead of just a single payment.
It is a format that has been successful around the world, most notably in North America, and it primarily appeals to younger players.
EuroDreams and EuroMillions Compared
EuroDreams and EuroMillions are aimed at different markets. While EuroMillions attracts those players who are looking to win the biggest jackpots – sometimes worth hundreds of millions of Euros – EuroDreams is targeted at lottery fans who want a steady flow of winnings over a long period.
The top two prizes in EuroDreams are set to be annuitized – paid out monthly over many years – followed by a series of smaller prizes.
The odds of winning the top prize are also much more favourable in EuroDreams. The games are played in the same countries, but they have different draw days and are entirely separate.
