MillionDay is a lottery drawn every day at 19:00 CET, with a jackpot prize of €1,000,000 (after tax). The game offers a total of four prize tiers, with prizes awarded for matching two or more numbers.
Choose five numbers ranging from 1 to 55. Each entry costs €1. You can also play multiple entries (max 10 per draw) and systemic entries by choosing up to 9 different numbers (max 126 entries per draw).
You have the option to play Extra MillionDay, at a cost of €1 per line. This is another draw, with five more winning numbers randomly selected from the 50 that have not appeared yet. You use the same numbers for Extra as you do for MillionDay, so you don’t have to pick any more.
If you play at a local shop, choose if you want to play for 2, 3, 5, 7, 10 or 20 consecutive draws, while if you play online you can choose anything between 2 and 20 consecutive draws. If you play multiple or systemic entries, you can choose anything between 2 and 5 consecutive draws. Leave it blank to play a single draw.
Pay for your entry. If you play at a retailer, keep your MillionDay ticket safe, because without it, you will be unable to claim a prize. If you play online, your ticket is securely stored in your account.
To play MillionDay you must be at least 18 years old. Players below the minimum age will not be permitted to play or claim any prizes won.
Draws take place at 19:00 CET every day, with ticket sales closing at 18:45 CET, then reopening for the next draw at 19:15 CET.
You win the jackpot by correctly matching all five numbers drawn.

If you play Extra, there’s another opportunity to win prizes. It works in the same way, so you’ll win a prize if you match two, three, four or five of the winning numbers. It’s even possible to win in both games, although you couldn’t win two jackpots on the same night as Extra only includes the 50 numbers that are left after the MillionDay draw has taken place.
The following table shows the prizes you can win in Extra MillionDay.
|Match||Prize – Standard Entry (playing 5 numbers)||Prize – System Entry (playing 6 numbers)||Prize – System Entry (playing 7 numbers)||Prize – System Entry (playing 8 numbers)||Prize – System Entry (playing 9 numbers))|
All MillionDay prizes must be claimed within 60 days of the draw taking place, but how you collect your money depends on the amount you won and whether you played online or through a retailer.
