Eurojackpot Hits €90 Million Cap

The top prize in Eurojackpot will stand at its maximum amount of €90 million on Friday night after another rollover in the latest draw. The jackpot cap has only been reached on two previous occasions in the game’s history, most recently in October, and now there is a chance the record could be equalled before the end of the year.

Eurojackpot Hits €90 Million Cap

As one of the world’s biggest lotteries, Eurojackpot always offers fantastic prizes – the minimum jackpot is €10 million – but when the jackpot cap is hit it creates spectacular levels of excitement.

The jackpot will remain at €90 million until it is won, and any additional funds which would normally boost the pot for the top prize are diverted to the next tier with winning players – most likely the Match 5 Plus 1 Euro number category. This means there may be opportunities for ticket holders to become multimillionaires even without matching all the winning numbers.

A German participant eventually scooped the full €90 million jackpot the last time the Eurojackpot summit was scaled on Friday 14th October, following in the footsteps of a player from the Czech Republic who matched all five main numbers and both Euro numbers in May 2015.

Whether the €90 million jackpot is given away on Friday night or early in in the New Year, it promises to be a spectacular finish to 2016 for many ticket holders. Eurojackpot can be played online or via authorised retailers in any of the 17 participating countries.
