Eurojackpot Fans Dream of €90 Million Payday
Eurojackpot fans across the continent are looking forward to Friday’s €90 million top prize in eager anticipation of escaping the January blues. The game’s jackpot cap has been reached for just the third time in its history and anyone who can match all five main numbers and two Euro numbers will find themselves rich beyond their wildest dreams.
As the jackpot rolled over at its cap last Friday, all additional funds that would have boosted the top prize will roll down into the next tier this week, meaning the players who match five main numbers and one Euro number will share an expected €20 million. This should create a number of new millionaires, even if no one banks the big one.
Those who receive a seven-figure cheque will join the 36 millionaires created during a very successful 2016 for Eurojackpot. This beat the previous year’s tally of 28 winners of €1 million or more and helped contribute to a total payout of nearly €1 billion to 35.8 million winners over the last 12 months.
During 2016, 309 ticket holders received sums worth €100,000 or more, with Germany leading the way by claiming 162 of those prizes. Finnish participants pocketed 42 wins of six figures or more, the second biggest haul, with Denmark in third.
