THE EUROJACKPOT LOTTERY (EUROJACKPOT)
History Of EuroJackpot:
|EuroJackpot was conceived of in late 2011 by countries not participating in the Pan-European EuroMillions lottery. These non-participating countries set about devising their own joint lottery so that they too could share in the excitement of giant jackpot draws. And giant jackpots are just what the EuroJackpot lottery is bringing to the table. Jackpot prizes will start at €10 million with the potential to rise as high as a mouth-watering €90 million!
The first EuroJackpot draw took place on Friday, 23rd March 2012. PlayHugeLottos.com was one of the first to bring you the news.
How To Play EuroJackpot
The EuroJackpot lottery follows a very similar ball selection process to the popular Euro millions lottery structure. Number selection follows the below format:
- Lottery players select 5 numbers from a possible 50 numbers (1 – 50)
- Lottery players then select a further 2 numbers from a possible 8 numbers (1 – 8)
To win the main prize, players need to match all 7 lucky lottery numbers. For those players that don’t match all 7 numbers there are a further 11 consolatory prize tiers.
Record Breaking Eurojackpot Draws
The EuroJackpot has a fairly sizeable rollover cap in place. The jackpot can only ever reach a maximum of €90 million. If the jackpot remains unwon additional funds will be added to the lower tier prize also to a maximum of €90 million.
Eurojackpot originally had a rollover cap in addition to the jackpot cap. The lottery could only every rollover a maximum of 12 times. If on the 12th rollover draw the jackpot was still not won the jackpot amount would roll down to the lower tier.
From the 18th May 2012 to 10th August 2012 the EuroJackpot rolled continuously. On the 12th rollover draw the jackpot was still not won so the entire €27,545,858.00 top prize rolled down to the 2nd tier (match 5+1). As there was only one 2nd tier winner the total jackpot prize was effectively won by a player who didn't even match all 7 numbers. The lucky winner comes from Germany and is now one of biggest lottery winner in German history.
The biggest jackpot paid out to date was €46,079,338.00 won by a one lucky ticket holder on the 12th April 2013.
