There are 16 participating countries and the jackpot has been climbing steadily since a Danish participant scooped €49.6 million on Friday 20th February. Numbers are drawn every Friday night at an event in Helsinki and for the last couple of weeks there has been a record top prize up for grabs.
However, no ticket holders were able to land the €62 million offered on 24th April or the €75 million advertised last week, meaning that the highest ever amount to have been won remains the €61.1 million picked up by a player from Finland in September 2014.
The game works in a similar way to EuroMillions, as players pick five numbers from 1 to 50 plus an extra two Euro Numbers from 1 to 10, in a bid to win the jackpot. There are are 12 prize tiers in total and players who don’t win the jackpot can still enjoy fabulous results.
Last week, one player matched five main numbers and one Euro Number to earn €2.4 million. It was a great windfall, but with the EuroJackpot now hitting its ceiling, anyone in the Match 5 + 1 tier on Friday could stand to win far more if the top prize is not pocketed.
It could be one lucky ticket holder who snaps up €90 million tomorrow or multiple players who share the kitty, but the money must be won. Fans all over the continent, from Germany to Italy and Croatia to the Netherlands, have been rushing to enter. Friday’s draw promises to change the lives of successful players and give them the chance to live out their dreams, and tickets can be bought online or from any authorised retailer in the countries taking part.
