About Eurojackpot

Eurojackpot History

Eurojackpot history might not be a long one, but it surely is a successful one. In just seven years of existence (Eurojackpot was founded in 2012) it has managed to become one of the most popular lotteries in the European (and world) lotto history. And there are several reasons for that.

For instance, Eurojackpot history shows that it has a much higher frequency of winnings than its biggest rival, EuroMillions. Eurojackpot’s main prize has odds of 1:95 million, while EuroMillions stands at 1:139 million. In fact, Eurojackpot was launched in 2012 to compete with EuroMillions, and it seems it’s doing quite a good job at that, at least when it comes to winning the big prize.
Today, Eurojackpot is played in 18 countries, which creates its astounding prize pool. It is drawn every Friday in Helsinki and has a starting jackpot of €10 million which can become as big as €90 million. Players choose five numbers from a pool of 50 and two additional numbers out of another ten, and there are 11 other tiers of prizes aside from jackpot: 5+1, 5, 4+2, 4+1, 4, 3+2, 2+2, 3+1, 3, 1+2, 2+1. You can enter the game with €2 per line.

The biggest available prize in Eurojackpot, €90 million, has been won three times, which is an incredible amount when you realize it’s only been live for seven years. Also, more than 60 jackpots which were larger than the starting one (€10 million) were drawn in those seven years. So, when it comes to winning big money and having a large chance to do it, Eurojackpot is a safe bet.

But, a bigger prize on Eurojackpot isn’t the only thing drawing people in. When it comes to all the other tiers of prizes the odds in winning are 1:26, which makes it one of the most appealing lotteries in the world, and the main reason behind its popularity. The participation is as easy as can be, but betting on it or buying the ticket through Eurojackpotlotto makes it even easier. The prize pool is huge, the odds of winning are fantastic, so there is really no reason why you shouldn’t try your luck. Start today!
