Eurojackpot Top Prize Scooped in Finland on Friday 22nd January
One lucky player from Tammisaari in Finland landed the €19.3 million top prize in the Eurojackpot draw on Friday 22nd January after matching all five main numbers and both Euro numbers. It is the second time the jackpot has been won since the start of 2016, after a German ticket holder pocketed a brilliant €49.6 million on New Year’s Day.
The numbers drawn on Friday were 3, 19, 26, 29 and 36 with Euro numbers 4 and 9, and it was a memorable night for participants across the continent as more than 509,000 prizes were won across all 12 tiers. As well as the jackpot winner, a ticket holder from Norway also became a millionaire after matching five main numbers plus one Euro number to earn over €1.1 million.
A player from Germany matched five main numbers to win €400,262, while other cash rewards given away on the night spread from €7.80 for matching matching two main numbers and one Euro number to €5,336 for matching four main numbers and two Euro numbers.

Finland has produced nine top winners since Eurojackpot was launched in 2012. The biggest win ever recorded in the country was the €61.1 million given away in September 2014, while the most recent winner from the country came in September of last year, when one player scooped €38.8 million.
The top prize in Eurojackpot will revert to €10 million for the next draw this Friday, giving participants another opportunity to pick up great prizes. It could be that the top prize is again won in Finland, or perhaps another country will have its turn in the spotlight and produce another Eurojackpot winner. Tickets can be bought from authorised retailers in any of the 17 nations, while others can also get involved from wherever they are in the world by playing online. Good luck!
