The EuroJackpot is a multi-country lotto mostly spanning the Nordic countries as well as some of Central Europe. It covers a wider area (16 countries) than the EuroMillions with potentially millions more lotto players.
The EuroJackpot is one of the newest lotteries, starting in 2012, it has already become hugely popular, producing massive jackpots.
EuroJackpot starts at 10 million euros and rolls over if it not won. It is capped at the twelth week rollover producing a maximum jackpot of 90 million euros and is designed to give players more prizes and better odds while still producing the huge jackpots.
The EuroJackpot is similar to Euro Millions in that it is also a Powerball-type lotto game where numbers are chosen from two different number fields. Five balls are drawn from 1-50 and two balls (Euro Numbers) from 1-10. In order to win the jackpot, you must match all seven numbers with those drawn in the game.
The EuroJackpot prize fund is split into twelve tiers and has been designed to give as many players as possible a chance of winning a prize.
Played once per week on Fridays, the draws take place in Helsinki, Finland at 21:00 EET.
You can play EuroJackpot even if you are not a resident of one of the participating countries by buying your ticket online through a certified lottery agent.
Did you know - the overall odds of winning any EuroJackpot prize is 1 in 26.

The EuroJackpot lottery is a multi-national lotto covering 16 countries giving it the largest coverage area of any lottery in world. The countries covered are - Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
With a minimum jackpot of 10 million euros, it works in the same way as the Euromillions, the main differences are that the rollovers have a twelve week limit, making the maximum jackpot capped at 90 million euros and that the secondary number range is reduced to two balls from 1 - 10, giving better odds of winning a prize.
Draws are held in Helsinki, Finland and are overseen by authorities in Denmark and Germany.
EuroJackpot was first proposed in 2006, but the first draw didn't take place until March 2012, with only five participating countries. Realising that there was a gap in the market, more countries have joined in since then, resulting in todays vast coverage area, with potential players now reaching over 270 million.
