EuroJackpot is a fast-growing jackpot that is based in Europe but can be played from anywhere in the world. This week's grand prize is €51 million!
The clock is ticking down until tonight's big EuroJackpot lottery draw, this Friday, April 17, 2015. The prize of this week’s EuroJackpot is €51 million, so if you haven’t bought your online lottery tickets yet, now is the time.
EuroJackpot is one of Europe’s newest lotteries, and it is quickly becoming one of the most popular. As of now, 16 countries participate in the pan-regional draw, including Germany and Spain. Until recently, people who wanted to play needed to live in one of the 16 countries, but EuroJackpot was quick to make its tickets available online, so players from anywhere in the world can participate, simply by buying online lottery tickets.
A great advantage of buying online lottery tickets for EuroJackpot is that your winnings are not taxed! Of course, this means that you need to buy your tickets from a reputable website, the likes of Lottery Master and The Lotter. If you buy your online lottery tickets on a website that looks a tad bit shady, you may not get the prize money you deserve, even if you actually win. All the lottery ticket agents on our site are reputable and safe.
How to Play EuroJackpot
Players need to choose five numbers between 1 and 50, and two extra numbers, called Euro Figures, between 1 and 10. To win the grand prize, all 7 numbers need to match the numbers drawn. However, there are 12 other prizes that can be won through a number of matching variations on the ticket. Drawings take place every Friday, from EuroJackpot's base in Helsinki.
EuroJackpot versus EuroMillions
EuroMillions, another popular European lotto, is designed to award monstrous payouts to lucky winners; the issue is that lucky winners are few and far between, since the odds of matching all the numbers are very high. EuroJackpot, on the other hand, tends to award smaller jackpots (a minimum of €10 million and a maximum of €90 million), but they are won much more often. In fact, players are two times more likely to win at EuroJackpot than at EuroMillions!
