According to the EuroMillions website, the chances of winning the UK Millionaire Maker game can be estimated as 1 in 1,900,000.
But winning in this game depends entirely on the number of the payslips sold so the odds therefore fluctuate.
What numbers do most people choose?
A lot of people doing the EuroMillions pick a lucky dip to get their numbers.
Lottoland advises that people should avoid popular numbers, like 1-31, as people tend to opt for their birth date.
This means if these numbers come up more people will have them and the winning amount will be divided between more people.
They also suggest avoidance of a sequence of numbers.
