Of course, you can! We give you the opportunity to bet on the outcome of the Eurojackpot lottery, rather than purchase a ticket. But don’t worry, the prize amounts are still the same. So, if your numbers match those of the actual lottery, you will still win the same prize as if you purchased a ticket.
The Eurojackpot lottery started back in 2012, on March 17, when tickets first started being sold. The first Eurojackpot draw which ever took place was just 6 days later, on March 23, 2012. The first participating countries were Germany, Finland, Denmark, Slovenia, Italy, the Netherlands, and Estonia. Spain joined the party in 2012, and Iceland, Latvia, Croatia, Norway, Sweden, and Lithuania joined in 2013. Hungary and the Czech Republic were added to the list in 2014, Slovakia in 2015, and Poland in 2017.
To place your bets on the Eurojackpot lottery, you just need to go on our Eurojackpot page, select 5 numbers between 1 and 50, and 2 bonus numbers between 1 and 10, and finalize your transaction. Easy, right? You can also subscribe to Eurojackpot in order to participate in every single draw. This can be done by selecting the subscription option before finalizing your transaction, and your numbers will be automatically submitted for you in every draw!
To win the jackpot, you will need to match all 5 numbers and the 2 bonus numbers. However, there are 12 prize tiers in Eurojackpot, with different odds of winning - have a look at the prize table below. If you’re not sure which numbers you submitted, you may view these in your account. To check if they are the winning numbers, you may visit our Eurojackpot results page, which is updated after every draw. However, we will still send you an email to let you know that you’ve won, and we will make sure that the prize money is transferred to your account in a short amount of time.
There are different prizes in Eurojackpot (12 tiers to be exact!), depending on how many numbers you are able to match. The value of each prize, including the jackpot, depends on the number of tickets sold and the number of winners per prize tier. If there is more than one winner for a given prize tier, the prize will be shared among the winners. Check out the below prize table for more information:
