How to Play Eurojackpot
To play Eurojackpot, players are required to select five numbers between 1 and 50 plus two additional numbers, known as Euro numbers, from a choice of 1 to 10. To win the jackpot, players must match all seven numbers drawn. In the event that no ticket holder matches all seven numbers required, the jackpot rolls over to the following draw.
The jackpot is capped at €90 million, but in the event that funds from ticket sales exceed this amount, the excess funds are rolled down and added to the second tier prize pool. The largest jackpot to date is €90,000,000.00 and was won on 15th May 2015 by a single ticket purchased in Czech Republic. A jackpot of €90 million has been won on two occasions in the game's history, first by a single ticket holder from the Czech Republic in May 2015 and then by a German player in October 2016.
