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.
