Europe - EuroJackpot Information

Europe’s sensational EuroJackpot lotto is supported by lottery organisations in seventeen different European countries. The lottery boasts attractive winning odds as well as an impressive 12 prize categories!

History of the EuroJackpot Lotto

The EuroJackpot was created in November 2011, when several European national lottery officials met in Amsterdam at a summit regarding the creation of a new European lottery. The lotto representatives agreed on a play format similar to the well-known EuroMillions lottery, and decided to hold a draw every Friday in Helsinki, Finland. After months of negotiations and preparations, the inaugural EuroJackpot draw took place on 23rd March 2012. EuroJackpot awarded a record-breaking prize of €61.2 million, over half its jackpot cap, in September 2014 in an unforgettable Euro lottery draw. In May 2015 EuroJackpot broke all its own records and caused a huge buying frenzy when it kept rolling over to reach the self-imposed cap. In the end EuroJackpot awarded a top prize worth €90 million to a player from the Czech Republic, one of the latest countries to join the fold.

Since that time, the lottery's top €90 million prize has been awarded twice. In October 2016, a single player from Germany won the entire jackpot. In January 2017, the maximum €90 million prize was split between five winning tickets - each received a prize of €18 million.

EuroJackpot Lottery Rules

To enter to win the EuroJackpot exciting first place prize, players select five numbers from a guess range of 1-50 as well as two additional numbers from a separate guess range of 1-10. The additional numbers allow lottery players to win supplementary prizes, and are essential to complete the jackpot winning number selection. Euro lottery EuroJackpot players can choose to enter the lottery with standard entries, systematic forms, multi-draws and subscriptions.
