The joint-largest Eurojackpot prize in history was won on Tuesday night, as a player from Berlin pocketed the maximum jackpot of €120 million.

It was the only ticket from anywhere in the 18 participating countries that matched all the numbers - 15, 17, 23, 35 and 38 - plus the Euro numbers 4 and 9.

There were also 17 winners in the second category, for matching five main numbers plus one Euro number, giving each of those lucky ticket holders a €1.2 million payout. Go to the Results page to find a full prize breakdown for the draw on 8th November.

Biggest German Winner

There had been 17 draws without a winner prior to Tuesday night, making it the longest sequence of rollovers since Eurojackpot started in 2012.

The jackpot had been at its limit of €120 million for two previous draws, with excess funds being diverted to the prize tier below. That’s why there was a total prize fund of €20.5 million to divide between players in the Match 5+1 category.

The top prize would have stayed at its cap until someone had won, but it will now reset to its starting value of €10 million after a ticket holder from Berlin snagged the record-equalling jackpot.

It is the biggest prize ever won in Germany, overtaking the €110 million that went to someone from North Rhine-Westphalia in May.

The only other time that a Eurojackpot prize of €120 million has been paid out was on 25th July, when a Danish participant scooped the lot.

The jackpot cap had been €90 million until it was raised to €120 million in March.

You can take part in the next draw now, either online or by visiting an authorised lottery retailer in one of the participating nations.
