What is EuroMillions Plus?
Play Plus when you play EuroMillions for the opportunity of having your first five main numbers (but not your Lucky Star numbers) entered into an extra special draw* for a chance to win up to €500,000. The cost to play Plus is €1 per panel and the minimum play is just one panel.
* Extra special because only Ireland has a EuroMillions Plus draw!...There's some 'luck of the Irish' for you!
Draw days are every Tuesday and Friday and can be seen on RTÉ Two at approx 11:20pm every Tuesday and on RTÉ One at approx 11.40pm every Friday.

When you've completed your EuroMillions line selection, click Yes to play Plus (or No not to), choose the number of draws you want your numbers to be entered in (one, two, four, six or eight) and click Play Now.

EuroMillions Plus Advance Play
EuroMillions Plus Advance Play means that you can play up to a month's worth of EuroMillions Plus draws in advance. Perfect if you're going away or can't get to a shop or play online. Just tick the Advance Play box for one, two, four, six or eight, whichever suits best. The ticket you get will show the number of draws you're in and what dates apply.
Advance Play will always include the next EuroMillions draw (and EuroMillions Plus draw if you decide to play). If you win a prize in any of the draws you can claim it in the usual way. You'll get an exchange ticket to cover any draws left on your Advance Play.
If you've bought your ticket from a National Lottery agent, look after it. It's your only valid record for claiming a prize.
Across each line are the five numbers and two lucky stars from the individual panels you filled in, or random ones if you went for a Quick Pick. If you chose numbers instead of a Quick Pick, make sure they're the numbers you wanted before you leave the agent's premises.
Don't get caught for time!
Bear in mind that you won't be able to buy your EuroMillions ticket immediately before or while the game is actually on. Terminals are closed at 7.30pm and don't reopen until 7am the next morning. Any tickets bought for the next draw will be eligible in that draw, right up to terminal closing. If you play online sales close at 7.25pm.
The words PLUS YES will be printed on your ticket. Selecting EuroMillions Plus will give you the chance to win €500,000!
You can reuse your Playslip.
If you like to play the same set of numbers every week just keep the playslip somewhere handy. You don't need to complete a fresh one each time you play. If you play online, your account will remember your last played numbers and you can save favourite numbers too.
