Could Germany Make it Three Eurojackpot Wins in a Row?
German Eurojackpot players have the opportunity to make it three jackpot wins in three draws for their country tonight, when the top prize stands at €10 million. A ticket holder from North Rhine-Westphalia banked €10.5 million last Friday, with a Black Forest player winning €90 million on Friday 14th October, the joint-highest prize in the game’s history.
This week, it was reported that the winner of the record bounty had come forward to collect their cash from Lotto Baden-Württemberg, but there have been no details revealed about their identity yet. Lottery officials would not say whether it was a single ticket holder or a syndicate whose €90 million success equalled that of a Czech Eurojackpot player in May 2015.
Germany currently tops the list of jackpot wins, with 16 of its players matching all five main numbers and two Euro numbers. Next is Finland, with ten, and Denmark and Slovenia occupy joint third spot with two winners apiece. Croatia, Czech Republic, Italy, Norway and Spain have each provided a single winner since Eurojackpot began in 2012, and the remaining eight nations are yet to strike it lucky. Participants from the other 16 participating countries will be keen to end Germany’s run of dominance and claim this week’s eight-figure fortune for themselves.
