EuroMillions HotPicks Introduction



The “HotPicks” side game was created by Camelot, who organise all state lotteries in the United Kingdom (they run UK Lotto and Thunderball and also distribute all UK tickets to EuroMillions). It is a game that they use to increase receipts on both Lotto and EuroMillions, and it’s the latter of those that we will focus on here.




EuroMillions HotPicks is very simple and straightforward, and it’s also cheaper (and therefore considered more accessible) than the EuroMillions itself. It is a game that can only be played by players in the United Kingdom and one that ties-in with the main EuroMillions draw. See our How to Play section to learn more. EuroMillions HotPicks



How to Play EuroMillions HotPicks



There are five EuroMillions HotPicks games to play. These all cost €1.50 each to play and are named Pick 1, Pick 2, Pick 3, Pick 4 and Pick 5. The number refers to how many numbers need to be chosen. Pick 1, for instance, requires the player to choose 1 number, while Pick 5 requires them to choose 5, etc.,




The goal is to choose a number that is then drawn in the main EuroMillions draw. All of the numbers chosen have to be matched in order to win a prize and the prize increases depending on how many numbers there are.




Pick 1 pays the player €10 if their chosen number is visible in the Main EuroMillions draw. Pick 2 pays €100. If they choose to go for all 5 then they can win a maximum of €1 million.




HotPicks vs EuroMillions




The main question players ask is, is it worth it? That entirely depends on the draw, but in most cases HotPicks pays more. For instance, the largest amount ever paid out for matching 5 numbers on the EuroMillions was over €350,000, which is considerably less than the €1 million paid by HotPicks. HotPicks is also cheaper, however, if you choose 5 numbers and only match 4, you don’t win anything, whereas 4 numbers on the EuroMillions returns an average of €40 (€5,200 if matched with bonus numbers).




Winning Odds of EuroMillions HotPicks



The odds are as follows:




  • Pick 1 = 1 in 10

  • Pick 2 = 1 in 123

  • Pick 3 = 1 in 1,960

  • Pick 4 = 1 in 46,060

  • Pick 5 = 1 in 2,118,760
