How to play EuroJackpot
The EuroJackpot lotto format is broadly similar to the format of EuroMillions. Players are required to select five main numbers from the range 01 to 50 and two numbers from a separate range of 01 to 08. To win the jackpot it is necessary for the player to match all seven of their selections – a feat that is undoubtedly very challenging but statistically easier than matching all seven selections in a EuroMillions game which uses the number ranges 01 to 50 and 01 to 11. Intial reports show the odds of winning the EuroJackpot Jackpot at being 1 in 59m compared with 1 in 116m for Euromillions.
The minimum jackpot in the EuroJackpot lottery is a very impressive €10 million, but if no player manages to win it the jackpot is rolled over to the next draw. This rollover rule makes it possible for jackpots to soar to as much as €90 million.
Of course, the EuroJackpot also offers consolation prizes to those players who fail to match all seven of their selections but still manage to match at least a few of them. The general principle here is that the more selections a player matches, the bigger their EuroJackpot consolation prize will be. The exact values of consolation prizes are directly related to the amount of money available in the EuroJackpot prize pool and the number of players who qualify for such prizes, and so these values vary from draw to draw.
EuroJackpot draws take place every Friday and the first EuroJackpot draw took place on Friday 23 March, 2012. For more details information on the EuroJackpot visit www.euro-jackpot.net
