Eurojackpot Top Prize Hits €75 Million
The second largest prize in the history of Eurojackpot could be won on Friday night after the top prize climbed to a gigantic €75 million. The jackpot has rolled over for the last eight draws and continues to grow quickly as players everywhere set their sights on a place in the game’s history books.
The Eurojackpot record stands at €90 million after a ticket holder from the Czech Republic matched all five main numbers and both Euro numbers on 15th May 2015. The jackpot cap is €90 million so the top prize cannot climb any higher, and when it reaches this amount it will stay locked until someone wins. Any excess funds spill down to the next winning tier, creating the possibility of multimillion-Euro giveaways just for matching five main numbers plus one Euro number.
There is a chance the jackpot cap could be hit for only the second time if there is another rollover tomorrow evening, but excitement is growing among fans of the game and the rush for ticket sales means the top prize could also be grabbed in time for Easter. Germany and Finland currently lead the way with ten and nine jackpot winners respectively, but there are 15 other participating countries and everyone who picks up a ticket has an equal chance of success.
Even if the Eurojackpot top prize goes to someone else this weekend or rolls over again, there are lots of ways to win with 12 prize tiers in total. Check out the Eurojackpot Results section to see all the amazing cash rewards that can be claimed for matching just part of the winning line. In the last draw, for example, almost a million players picked up prizes and three lucky ticket holders pocketed €726,652 each for matching five main numbers plus one Euro number.
If you want to be in with a chance of winning the jackpot, or any other prize, you’ll have to pick up a ticket. You can play Eurojackpot online from wherever you are in the world or by going to an authorised retailer in any of the participating countries, and it could just be that you scoop a stunning €75 million. Good luck!
