There are a number of gigantic lottery jackpots around Europe this week, one of which is the €82 million (£71.5 million) Eurojackpot bounty available on Friday. But can you play Eurojackpot in the UK, which numbers should you pick, and why choose that game over the €90 million (£80 million) EuroMillions top prize or Italy’s €89.7 million (£78.2 million) SuperEnalotto?

Can You Play Eurojackpot From the UK?

Although the UK isn’t one of the 18 participating Eurojackpot nations, you can still win the same prizes as players from Vilnius to Verona and Dusseldorf to Dubrovnik, thanks to lottery betting sites like Jackpot.com.

You choose five main numbers between 1 and 50 and two Euro numbers from a choice of ten, with the chance to win in 12 prize tiers, just like players across the Eurojackpot zone. All winnings are paid into your player account, and from there you can withdraw them into your bank account.

Why Should You Play Eurojackpot Instead of EuroMillions or SuperEnalotto?

Both Eurojackpot and EuroMillions are popular pan-European lotteries, featuring some tantalising big-money jackpots, whilst SuperEnalotto can also grow to huge levels. However, of the three games, Eurojackpot boasts the best jackpot-winning odds, standing at 1 in 95.3 million, compared with EuroMillions’ 1 in 139.8 million and SuperEnalotto’s 1 in 622.6 million.

In addition, Eurojackpot’s second tier prize (for matching five main numbers and one Euro number) yields an average €514,768 and often tops €1 million, compared with an average €307,756 for the Match 5+1 tier in EuroMillions and an expected €311,000 in the corresponding SuperEnalotto bracket.

Which Eurojackpot Numbers Should You Choose?

Looking at the statistics, you might opt for the most frequently drawn main numbers, which are 40, 19, 1, 7 and 16, with 5 and 8 having appeared most often as Euro numbers. If you would prefer to play the most overdue numbers, 37 hasn’t appeared as a main ball since September 2016 and is joined by 8, 6, 31 and 27 to make up the five most publicity-shy numbers. Euro numbers 3 and 8 are the most overdue of the game’s bonus balls. Find out more at the Eurojackpot Statistics pages.

Alternatively, you may want to choose numbers based on significant digits in your life, or even opt for a random selection by playing a Quick Pick, where the computer chooses on your behalf.

Whichever numbers you opt for, select them online now for a chance to pick up €82 million this Friday night.
