The Europe wide multi country lottery, the Euro Jackpot, is offering a double rollover jackpot for its first draw of the New Year. Taking place in Helsinki, Finland, the draw on Friday 3rd January 2014 will offer a jackpot of €15 million for the lottery player whose ticket matches all five of the main numbers as well as the two Euro Numbers.
The Euro Jackpot lottery takes place every Friday evening, and the last draw, two days after Christmas, was offering an estimated jackpot of €13 million to a lucky lottery player across the member countries, however there were no lottery tickets matching all of the main numbers 2, 15, 33, 40 and 43 as well as the Euro Number 3 and 7.
In an unusually unlucky set of lotto results, the Euro Jackpot draw on Friday 27th December 2013 was also unable to find a second placed winner, as no tickets bought for the final draw of the year matched the five main numbers and one out of the two Euro Numbers, a combination which usually offers a second prize over €100,000 however the lottery player who matched only the five main numbers took home €95,763.
So what would you do with €15 million? You could celebrate the New Year in style by taking a luxury river cruise from Nuremberg to Prague with friends and family for under €3,500 per person. Perhaps you’d like to treat yourself to a four bedroom apartment in the 7th arrondissement of Paris for €4.2 million, leaving you change for a €9.5 million eight bedroom luxury holiday villa with a sea view heated outdoor pool, indoor pool, sauna and Turkish bath, cinema and disco on the Silver Coast in Central Portugal.
Whatever you’d do with your lotto jackpot winnings, make sure you buy a EuroJackpot lottery ticket for this Friday draw, and here’s hoping that the New Year will bring you luck!
