EuroJackpot Still Seeking
First Jackpot Winner
The EuroJackpot top prize will continue to roll over after no tickets held the winning combination in last Friday’s 2012/4 draw. The jackpot will gain another €1 million, reaching €15 million for next Friday’s 2012/5 draw.
EuroJackpot is the newest addition to Europe’s transnational lotteries, joining the ranks of EuroMillions and Viking Lotto, who have 10 and 8 member countries respectively. EuroJackpot has a geographically diverse list of host countries that span the entire continent, ranging from Iceland to Sweden, and Italy to Estonia.
EuroJackpot has a starting jackpot of €10,000,000, which grows by €1 million each time the jackpot rolls over. The jackpot can grow freely until it hits the €90 million mark.
How to Play Eurojackpot
Simply select five main numbers from 1 to 50 and then two additional Euro numbers from 1 to 10. As the Euro numbers are drawn from a different set of balls to the main numbers, it is possible for the same number to appear as both a main number and a Euro number in the same result.
You can select your own numbers or use the ‘Quick Pick’ option when buying tickets to randomly generate a set of numbers. Alternatively, you can use the Random Number Generator before you purchase your ticket to find a set of numbers you like.
There are 12 prize tiers on offer in Eurojackpot, and anyone who matches all five main numbers and both Euro numbers in the draw will win a share of the jackpot, which starts at €10 million. If nobody matches all of the numbers in a draw, the jackpot will roll over into the next draw, until it reaches its cap of €90 million.
Eurojackpot tickets can be bought online or through authorised retail stores in a participating country.
