Eurojackpot can be played online or through an authorised retailer. Follow these simple steps on how to play:
Each entry into the draw consists of five main numbers from 1 to 50, and two Euro numbers from 1 to 10. Euro numbers are drawn from a separate ball machine, so it’s possible to have the same number as both a main number and Euro number.
Tickets cost €2 per entry and sales close at 19:00 CET on Fridays.
Draws take place at 20:00 CET in Helsinki, Finland.
Match all five main numbers and both Euro numbers to win the jackpot. Prizes start from matching as few as three numbers.
If there are no jackpot winners in a draw, the jackpot amount is carried over to the next draw. The jackpot is limited to a maximum amount of €90 million. It remains at this level until it is won, with any excess funds that would have supplemented the jackpot being diverted into the next highest winning prize tier, most likely the Match 5 + 1 tier.
