Distribution of Revenue

Each participating country allocates a portion of its revenue from Eurojackpot ticket sales to the prize fund, which pays out winnings based on fixed percentages of the fund itself.

The remaining revenue is shared between ticket retailers, operational costs, lottery or state taxes within the participating countries, payments to public initiatives and profit for the individual lottery operators. Each of the participating countries also uses Eurojackpot revenue to provide valuable funding for good causes; find out more about these initiatives at the dedicated page.

If you are interested in how the money from the prize fund is allocated to winning tickets, please visit the Prize Fund Distribution page.
