Prize Fund Distribution
When prizes are awarded on a pari-mutuel basis, it means that their value depends on how many tickets have been sold and how many winners there have been in each tier. View more information about Pari-Mutual and how it works
Out of every €2 spent on a Eurojackpot ticket, 50 percent (€1) is allocated to the prize fund.
Eurojackpot prizes are calculated using the following percentages for each prize tier:
|Prize Tier||% Prize Fund||Average Prize *|
|Match 5 and 2 Euro Numbers||36%||38,142,202|
|Match 5 and 1 Euro Number||8.5%||634,700|
|Match 4 and 2 Euro Numbers||1%||4,338|
|Match 4 and 1 Euro Number||0.9%||235|
|Match 3 and 2 Euro Numbers||0.6%||60|
|Match 2 and 2 Euro Numbers||3.1%||22|
|Match 3 and 1 Euro Number||3%||18|
|Match 1 and 2 Euro Numbers||7.8%||10|
|Match 2 and 1 Euro Number||19.1%||8|
*Average prize amounts calculated using results drawn between 28/05/2016 and 26/05/2017.
The remaining 12 percent of the Eurojackpot prize pool goes to the Booster Fund, which is a reserve fund to guarantee the minimum jackpot of €10 million. If the Booster Fund exceeds €20 million, any extra money is diverted into the jackpot for the next draw.
