German Eurojackpot Player Scoops €49.6 Million Jackpot
A German Eurojackpot ticket holder banked €49.6 million in the draw on Friday 1st January after matching all five main balls and two Euro numbers. The top prize had been rolling since Friday 13th November, when one of the latest winner’s compatriots pocketed €32.6 million. Germany is now leading the way in terms of jackpot wins for the participating Eurojackpot nations, with ten successes to second placed Finland’s eight. Denmark and Slovenia trail in third, with two jackpot winners each.
The Eurojackpot results for 1st January were 11, 14, 35, 44 and 45 with Euro numbers 5 and 6 and other prizes snapped up on the night ranged from €8 for matching two main numbers and one Euro number to €423,474 for the three German players and one ticket holder from Finland who matched five main balls and one Euro number. Take a look at the Results section to find the full prize breakdown for the draw.
Having kicked 2016 off in winning style, it is hoped that this could prove a fruitful year for Eurojackpot players. Estonia, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Sweden and the recently-joined Slovakia are yet to produce a jackpot winner and players from those countries will surely make it their resolution to change that over the next 12 months.
However, you don’t need to live in one of the 17 official Eurojackpot countries to play this fun game. Anyone across the world can take advantage of online lottery concierge services in order to stake their claim for this Friday’s €10 million top prize.
