€107 Million Eurojackpot Prize Goes to Germany
Wednesday 1st February 2023 10:52 AM

A player from Germany has become one of the biggest Eurojackpot winners ever after scooping a prize worth €107 million.

The jackpot had climbed past €100 million following 11 consecutive draws without a winner. Another rollover would likely have pushed it up to its jackpot cap of €120 million, but someone matched all the winning numbers.

The numbers drawn on Tuesday 31st January were 20, 21, 30, 41 and 43, with Lucky Stars 10 and 11. View a full prize breakdown of how many winners there were in each category.

It is the first time the jackpot has been won this year, and ranks as the fourth-largest prize to have been paid out in Eurojackpot history.

The top four have all come in the last 12 months, following changes to the rules last March to mark the game’s tenth anniversary. The jackpot limit had previously been €90 million.

A German player won €110 million in May 2022, before a ticket holder from Denmark set a new record in July with a €120 million win after the jackpot had reached its cap for the first time.

Another German player, from Berlin, equalled the record with a €120 million win of their own in November.

Not much is known yet about the latest €107 million winner. There is no rush for them to come forward, either, as the claim period is three years from the draw date.

However, it has been confirmed that the winning ticket was sold in Bremen, making it comfortably the biggest win ever seen in the state.

The jackpot, meanwhile, will reset to €10 million for the next draw on Friday. You can take part online or by visiting an authorised retailer in any of the 18 participating countries.
