EuroJackpot had its first draw in March 2012, so it is one of the youngest lotteries around. Not just that: it already managed to take the spotlight on numerous occasions thanks to its impressive prizes – especially its incredible jackpot prizes that compete with those of lotteries that have been well-established for decades. As its name implies, EuroJackpot is a European lottery in the vein of the first pan-European lottery, EuroMillions. Because of the sheer number of participating countries, EuroJackpot beats its ‘big brother’ by a landslide with 17 participating countries compared to the EuroMillions 9 participating countries.
EuroJackpot’s top prize starts at an incredible €10 million, and can reach up to €90 million – which has already happened 4 times to date! In September 2019, a syndicate of 50 players from Finland won the €90 million top prize, which was boosted to €92 million as a result of the group matching several secondary prizes as well!
Some interesting statistics about this lottery:
• Biggest Jackpot – €90 million (May 2015, October 2016, January 2017, September 2019)
• A chance of 1 in 95,344,200 to win the jackpot
• In May 2015, barely 3 years after its creation, the EuroJackpot top prize reached €90 million, its maximum amount.
How to win the EuroJackpot
During a EuroJackpot draw, 5 balls are drawn from a set of 50 balls ranging from 1 to 50. Two additional numbers ranging from 1 to 10, are also drawn. These additional numbers are essential for winning the jackpot.
EuroJackpot prizes are paid out TAX-FREE.
The EuroJackpot lottery is played in the following countries: Croatia, Spain, Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Lithuania, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia and Sweden.
Fact is that although the maximum EuroMillions jackpot rises well above that of the EuroJackpot – €190 million compared to €90 million – the chances of winning EuroJackpot’s top prize are far superior. This means that you’re far more likely to win a huge jackpot with EuroJackpot than with EuroMillions, whoes odds of winning are daunting to say the least.
Not just that: you also stand a chance of winning a range of fantastic secondary prizes. Be smart and don’t wait: play EuroJackpot online!
