How to Play

The game is simple to play, and all you have to do is select five numbers from a range of 1 – 50 and then pick two additional numbers (called Euro Numbers) from a range of 1 – 10. To hit the jackpot, the five numbers as well as the two Euro Numbers drawn must match the winning numbers.

The draw takes place every Friday at 21:00 EET in Helsinki, Finland.

Participating Countries

Originally there were six countries which took part in the very first draw in March 2012, but the popularity of the game quickly attracted the interest of other countries and there are now 18 participating countries.

EuroJackpot Game History and Changes

March 2012

The EuroJackpot was launched after being inspired by the success of the Euro Millions, and initially had 14nations participating: Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.

The first tickets were sold in March 2012 with the first ever draw taking place on March 23rd 2012 in Helsinki. To begin with, the jackpot for this lottery could not roll over after twelve consecutive weeks, even if it was below the €90 million euro cap.

Early 2013

The rollover rule was abolished and changed to its current rule whereby the jackpot can continue to roll over until it reaches €90 million. If this occurs then the jackpot is split onto the next prize category down, making for some more attractive secondary prizes.

On this date two new countries became participants in the EuroJackpot game: Hungary and Czech Republic.
