The Eurojackpot is a lottery played by participants from selected European countries. To enter, players must select 5 main numbers from a pool of 1 to 50. Two ‘Euro’ numbers from a second pool of 1 to 12 must also be selected. The winning numbers are then drawn at random in Helsinki, Finland each Tuesday and Friday (Helsinki time).

€10 million (approximately AUD$17 million) is the minimum jackpot. When it’s not won, it grows each draw until it’s either won, or reaches a maximum of €120 million (approximately AUD$175 million). When the jackpot cap is in place and is not won, any money that would normally go towards increasing the jackpot prize for the next draw will instead go to the second division.
