A Norwegian woman won the €17.4 million Eurojackpot top prize on Friday 23rd March, the third ticket holder from the country to match all five main numbers and two Euro numbers since the lottery began. It was the second jackpot win in three weeks, following a €42.6 million Eurojackpot success for a German participant on Friday 9th March.

Winning Eurojackpot Numbers

The winning line in the Eurojackpot draw on 23rd March was 4, 14, 22, 33 and 42 with Euro numbers 1 and 10. More than half a million players collected prizes, with non-jackpot sums ranging from €9.50 for matching two main numbers and one Euro number to €425,220 for the seven players who matched five main numbers and one of the Euro numbers.

You can see the full prize breakdown for the draw at the Eurojackpot Results page.

Norwegian Eurojackpot Winner

The €17.4 million prize, which converts to kr167 million, went to a woman from Aust Agder, a county in the south of the country. As she was registered with Norsk Tipping, which runs Eurojackpot in Norway, she was contacted as soon as the win was revealed on Friday night.

The lucky player, who is the proud owner of the country’s fourth biggest lottery win of all time, said that she was having trouble coming to terms with the news, but declared herself “very happy”. She said that she was now looking forward to taking a long holiday in Thailand.
