The EuroJackpot lottery is the other multinational European lottery – smaller (when it comes to jackpot prizes) than the EuroMillions lottery, but also much younger (existing only since 2012). In the three five since its inception this young and exciting lottery already managed to crack the jackpot cap of €90 million – which happened on May 2015 when a Czech player pocketed the fabulicious maximum jackpot! The beauty of it all: this European lottery is also available online even if you are not in the EuroJackpot participating countries, right here at Buy-EuroMillions.com!
EuroJackpot is the shared creation of initially eight, later fourteen, and since October 2014 no less than sixteen European countries! So, when it comes to the number of participating countries, EuroJackpot already beats EuroMillions! The participating countries are Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden. The EuroJackpot Lotto is designed to pay out twice as frequently as its rich cousins, EuroMillions and Powerball. Because it pays out more often, the prizes are mostly smaller. The smallest prize that a jackpot will win is 10 million Euros. The maximum jackpot is €90 million (this compared to the €190 million maximum EuroMillions jackpot).
Still, if you get frustrated playing the EuroMillions lottery constantly, EuroJackpot could be the game for you. The odds of winning the EuroJackpot are 1 in 59,325,280. To win the jackpot, you must hit five regular and two additional numbers, just like with the EuroMillions lottery. The odds of winning the second tier prize are 1 in 4,943,773. The odds keep getting better as the prize value keeps decreasing. The bottom, 12th tier odds are 1 in 35 of winning. The odds for winning the top prize are better than those offered by EuroMillions, but at the bottom level it is the other way around.
EuroJackpot sets new jackpot record
EuroJackpot is a relatively new lottery, the youngest member of the extensive European lottery family, with only just over 3 years of existence under its belt. In May 2015, EuroJackpot managed to reach its jackpot cap of €90 million for the very first time. That means the jackpot cap is now also the jackpot record, and a new record is not possible anymore in the current set up – the jackpot record can not be bettered, only equaled. Still, therein lies the challenge! Another €90 million EuroJackpot may be waiting for you soon!
