Who’s playing Eurojackpot?
Europe is famous for many things, its people, culture, food and of course, its lotteries!
Europe is home to some of the biggest lottery jackpots in the world, with EuroMillions leading the way with prize money in the hundreds of millions!
But right on the heels of EuroMillions is another exciting European lottery, Eurojackpot.
This popular lottery launched in 2012 and has grown to be one of the most popular lotteries across the European continent. As EuroMillions isn’t available in every European country, Eurojackpot has filled this gap and is offering up bigger jackpots than ever.
Why we love Eurojackpot
The jackpots might not be as big as EuroMillions, but this lottery is cheaper to play and it’s easier to win.
Who could complain with Eurojackpot, jackpots starting at AUD$15 million! While they may be capped at AUD$170 million, it’s still a lot of zeros in your bank account if you’re a division 1 winner!
With so many countries participating (18 in total), the jackpots are huge! Even if you don’t walk away with a first division win, the prize money is out of this world with 2nd division reaching AUD$2 million.
Thanks to the jackpot cap of AUD$170 million, any extra prize money that rises above the cap will be passed down to the next division winner. By playing our matching European Jackpot lottery you could be a division 2 millionaire!
What European countries participate in the Eurojackpot lottery?
Initially, only 8 countries participated in Eurojackpot, although it wasn’t long until another 6 joined and now lottery lovers can play Eurojackpot in 18 countries across Europe. These countries include Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Norway, Latvia, Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, Netherlands, Germany, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, and Spain.
