Somewhat overshadowed by its sister European lottery, Euromillions, the EuroJackpot lottery is nonetheless equally capable of making dreams come true. Just ask the lucky player from Germany who took home both the Jackpot prize amount along with his 2nd tier prize win on Friday night.
It has been exactly one week since history was made by EuroJackpot. Now that both the Euromillions and Powerball jackpots have been won and the excitement has died down a bit we can revisit the amazing story of the lucky EuroJackpot winner from North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany.
Last Friday, 10th of August 2012, the lucky German lottery player was on the receiving end of an exceptionally wide smile from Lady Luck. He took home the top jackpot prize without even matching all 7 balls needed to win the top prize.
How is this possible?
Well, if the jackpot amount is not won for 12 consecutive draws it HAS to be paid out! If no one picks the correct numbers for the jackpot on the 12th rollover draw the winners in the second prize tier will get both the 2nd tier prize and a share of the jackpot!
On Friday, after having rolled over 12 times since 18th May 2012, the EuroJackpot draw was again without a winner so the jackpot prize rolled down to the 2nd prize tier winners, of which there was only ONE. Who Says 2nd Place Is For Losers?
The lucky lottery winner took home a total amount of €27,545,858.00 and is now the 3rd biggest lottery winner in Germany. This could very well be the first person to ever win a major multinational lottery jackpot, without actually winning the jackpot! Now THAT’S LUCKY!
New Lottery - Even More Excitement
EuroJackpot might be new to the lottery scene having only launched in March 2012 but that doesn’t mean you should underestimate this amazing pan-European lottery. Jackpot prizes are guaranteed to start at €10 million with the potential to rise as high as a mouth-watering €90 million or 12 consecutive rollover draws – whichever comes first. This lottery is definitely worth to give a try.
To date, since the first draw on 23rd March 2012, the EuroJackpot has only ever had one winner who matched all 7 lucky numbers. One lucky player took home €19,536,863.00 on the 7th rollover draw played on 11th May 2012.
If you like the idea of becoming number 2 then get your lucky numbers in for tonight’s exciting EuroJackpot draw.
