In life it’s very often a case that the more you put in, the more you get out! And the same is true for our current Oktoberfest competition. Every ticket you purchase for the Eurojackpot lottery today will be entered into a lucky draw with one lucky winner taking home a year’s supply of beer. So, the more tickets you buy the higher your chance of taking away the big prize.
Not everyone has a taste for beer, of course, which is why we are going to let the winner choose his or her favourite beverage. If malted barley, hops, yeast and water is not your thing then simply choose something else, it’s up to you.
Don’t forget there are also two runners up prizes of €250 play credit and €100 play credit respectively.
We will be announcing the lucky winners on the 17th September.
