2016 is nearly over, but it could go out with a bang for anyone who scoops the main €90,000,000 EuroJackpot lottery prize this Friday 30th December.
Played across much of Europe, including Germany, Spain, Sweden and Italy, the EuroJackpot Lottery has a €90 million jackpot waiting to be claimed with the next draw scheduled to take place on Friday 30th December.
About The EuroJackpot
Running since 2012, the EuroJackpot lottery has some 50 million players each week, looking to scoop a jackpot that starts at €10,000,000 and rolls over from there.
Set up as a competitor to the EuroMillions lottery, it has been designed from the start to be easier to win, with the maximum €90,000,000 being available this Friday. So despite the fact that it can't reach the €190,000,000+ levels of EuroMillions, more players can benefit from the substantial prizes on offer, with 12 levels in total available.
Draws take place each Friday at 21.00 local time in Helsinki, Finland, with tickets evaluated in Denmark and Germany, and anyone matching 5 main numbers from 50 plus 2 extra numbers from 1 to 8 will scoop the prize.
This makes it twice as easy to win as the EuroMillions lottery and now that tickets can be purchased online through sites such as The Lotter, it has opened up to a worldwide audience. Tickets cost €2 and are also available to buy at shops, gas stations and newsagents across the 17 participating countries.
Because of the €90 million cap, anytime the jackpot rolls over 12 times it will roll down to the next levels which gives more players a chance of winning a huge prize. This will be one of the last big lottery draws of 2016 and could give someone a very happy new year indeed.
