Interested lotto players can purchase Euro Jackpot tickets online just as easily as they can purchase tickets for the Euro Millions lottery game.
How to Play Euro Jackpot
Although Euro Jackpot bears a striking similarity to Euro Millions, it has several advantages over older lottery games. Euro Jackpot rules require players to choose five numbers from a number range of 1 to 50 and two numbers from a number range of 1 to 10. Players who successfully match all the chosen 7 numbers against the numbers chosen during the draw will win the jackpot.
Matching all the 7 numbers, needless to say, is not that easy, but easier than matching the numbers in case of Euro Millions, which presents a main number range of 1 – 50 and a special number range of 1 – 11. Lotto experts say that players have a one in 59 million chance of hitting the jackpot of Euro Jackpot while they have a one in 116 million chance of hitting the Euro Millions jackpot.
The minimum jackpot that can be won in Euro Jackpot lotto game is €10 million, but if no player wins this jackpot, it is rolled over to the next game and will continue to be rolled over till it hits the €90 million mark.
Non Jackpot Prizes
Euro Jackpot is associated with a number of non jackpot prizes too, which will be given away to players who manage to match a few, if not all the numbers chosen. But players will win a larger prize if they manage to match the largest number of numbers. The size of these non jackpot prizes depends on the total prize pool and the number of players who have actually won these prizes.
Euro Jackpot players who fail to win the jackpot have the opportunity to win 11 other non jackpot prizes depending on how many of the seven numbers they have successfully matched. The lowest prize can be won by matching 2 main numbers and 1 extra number.
