Eurojackpot is one of the most recognizable transactional lotteries in Europe.
18 European nations participate in the lottery.
The game involves drawing five numbers between 1 and 50 and two additional numbers between 1 and 10. To win the jackpot, a player has to match all the seven figures.
Apart from the jackpot, there are 11 prize tiers. Eurojackpot guarantees a minimum jackpot of €10,000,000 that can reach up to €90,000,000. Players need to pay a fee of €2 per line.
Eurojackpot results are announced every Friday at 21:00 hrs in Helsinki. Winning tickets are evaluated in Denmark and Germany. Because the odds of winning the Eurojackpot are higher than many other lotteries such as EuroMillions, the prize money is not expected to grow at a very high rate.
It is expected that Eurojackpot is played by around 300 million people, which is significantly higher than the number of people who participate in EuroMillions(around 217 million).
In 2015, a player from the Czech Republic won the €90 million jackpot. Players from any country can participate in the game as long as they are
- At least 18 years of age (can be 21 depending on the country they are playing from), and
- They reside in a country that has not banned online gambling.
Winners can choose to either receive the entire amount as a lump sum payment or get the amount annuitized.
