Big Eurojackpot Wins for Estonia and Germany
The top prize in Eurojackpot rolled over on Friday 12th August as no ticket holder managed to match all five main numbers and both Euro numbers, but over half a million players pocketed cash and there were some very big winners. The jackpot will now climb to €22 million for the next draw.
The winning numbers drawn were 6, 15, 18, 21 and 38 with Euro numbers 1 and 4. The biggest winners on the night were the two ticket holders - one from Estonia and one from Germany - who matched five main numbers plus one Euro number to win €1.1 million each. While Germany is statistically the most successful country on Eurojackpot in terms of jackpot winners, this is as close as any Estonian player has come to landing the top prize and is perhaps the largest Eurojackpot win ever for the country.
There were four participants, all from Germany, who matched five main numbers to win €102,229 each, while the other prizes given away spanned from €7.90 for matching two main numbers and one Euro number to €4,868 for matching four main numbers and two Euro numbers. Visit the Eurojackpot Results page to see a full prize breakdown.
The jackpot has now rolled over twice since a player from Germany won a gigantic €84.7 million on Friday 29th July, making them the second-biggest winner in the game’s history. The record belongs to a ticket holder from the Czech Republic who scooped €90 million in May 2015, but the latest results show that players from all 17 participating nations can win incredible Eurojackpot prizes.
While an Estonian player landed the joint-biggest prize this time around, next time it could be someone from Croatia, Iceland or Sweden. Tickets for the next Eurojackpot draw on Friday can be bought now, either online from anywhere in the world or from authorised retailers in the participating countries. Good luck!
