€117 Million Prize Goes to Eurojackpot Player from Hamburg
Just when it looked like Eurojackpot’s top prize was going to hit its maximum limit again, a player from Germany won €117 million on Friday.
After a run of 11 consecutive draws without a winner, the jackpot for Friday night was originally estimated to be €113 million.
Strong ticket sales pushed the top prize up even higher, and one participant was rewarded when they matched all the numbers - 3, 17, 19, 32 and 38, plus Euro numbers 6 and 7.
As well as the jackpot, there were also more than 1.4 million other prizes paid out across the 18 participating countries. View all the draw details to find out the prize breakdowns for each nation.
It was announced straight after the draw that the lucky ticket was sold in Germany, and it was later revealed to be a record win for the city of Hamburg.
As well as becoming the biggest-ever winner from the Hanseatic city, the ticket holder also makes it into the top five of Eurojackpot’s largest prizes of all time.
The jackpot cap stands at €120 million and has been reached three times - a Danish player was the first to win the maximum amount in July 2022, followed by two German successes. Someone from Berlin landed €120 million last November, and that achievement was replicated by a player from Schleswig-Holstein just six weeks ago on Friday 23rd June.
A rollover on Friday would have triggered the jackpot limit again, but instead it will now drop down to its base value of $10 million. You can take part by visiting an authorised retailer in any of the playing nations, or choosing your numbers online.
