Proof of Purchase

If you've bought a paper ticket, look after it. It's your only valid record for claiming a prize.

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 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.
