Ticket Holders in Poland Prepare for First Eurojackpot Draw

Ticket Holders in Poland Prepare for First Eurojackpot Draw
Friday 15th September 2017 8:52 AM

Tonight marks the start of a new era for Eurojackpot as players in Poland witness their first ever draw. Ticket sales in the Eastern European nation began shortly after last Friday’s draw and have been snapped up in preparation for the upcoming event.

News of Poland’s arrival on the Eurojackpot scene first broke in June at the ninth European Lotteries Congress in Krakow. Since then, the nation’s lottery lovers have been eagerly waiting to join a pan-European game that offers the chance to win an array of fabulous prizes. Poland’s arrival has brought an end to the days of a 17-nation lottery and instead ushered in a new stage in the game’s development. 

There has been much excitement surrounding Poland’s introduction. It is hoped that the country’s inclusion will help to boost future jackpot totals, allowing the prize pot to reach its €90 million cap at a much quicker rate. Poland’s debut could also provide inspiration to other nations hoping to join one of the continent’s fastest growing lottery games in the future.

Poland’s first appearance could not have come at a better time, with a €30 million jackpot just waiting to be won in tonight’s draw. The game’s premium prize has been rolling over since Friday 18th August, when a player from Norway landed a €47.3 million reward. In subsequent draws, there have been over 1.7 million prizes given away, a figure that Polish players would love to significantly increase in upcoming weeks.   

Of course, you don’t need to live in Poland to take part in tonight’s draw. Whether you live in one of the 18 participating countries or elsewhere around the world, don’t miss out on boosting your bank balance by €30 million. To join the fun, you can pick your numbers online or play through an authorised retailer. Good luck!
