Last Friday, the 14th February, was not only Valentine’s day but also marked the 100th drawing of the EuroJackpot lottery game. First drawn in March 2012, the game created its first millionaire on 11 May. That first massive jackpot went to a syndicate in North Rhine-Westphalia, and was a whopping 19.5 million Euros!
Since then EuroJackpot draws have created another 12 big millionaires, with all of them winning more than 10 million Euros. The all-time record EuroJackpot jackpot is an incredible 46.1 million Euros, won by an individual in Hesse, Germany but the lottery has also set records in several countries – for example, just last month a Croatian record 17.3 million Euros was scooped. Aside from the jackpot, some 168 winners of this European lottery have pocketed more than 100,000 Euros each. Imagine what you could do with that sort of money!
Of course, you may think that your own chances of joining this exclusive millionaire’s club are pretty slim; but you know what they say, the only way to have a chance is to get involved in the game.
Drawn in Helsinki, the EuroJackpot is one of the biggest European lottery games. Played across multiple countries ( Croatia, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden), it can also be played online by players from countries all over the world.
The size of the geographical area where the lottery is played may mean there’s more competition for the big wins, but it also means the EuroJackpot jackpot can reach astronomical levels, as winnings are pooled from ticket purchases across all participating nations. There’s also a rollover facility; if a jackpot is not won in one week, it’s simply added to the following week’s total. This means jackpots can go as high as a massive 90million euros!
EuroJackpot draws take place every Friday. Buy your tickets online today at Lottery24.com.
