The Eurojackpot lottery is geared up for bigger wins!
The Eurojackpot lottery launched in March 2012, has grown into one of Europe’s most popular lotteries. Boasting a multi-national player pool, the Eurojackpot winning history features people from all sorts of countries and walks of life, each with their own unique story but all with a shared dream of potentially winning the lottery.
As of the 25th of March, the Eurojackpot will become an even bigger lottery and below are some changes that players will notice - these changes will go into effect as of tomorrow.
The maximum jackpot is increasing from an eye-catching €90 million to a mouth-watering €120 million.
The Eurojackpot draw currently happens on Friday only but as of tomorrow will draw down on both Tuesdays and Fridays. So players will be able to play twice a week.
The game formula is also changing slightly - currently, players would select 5 numbers between 1 - 50 and 2 bonus numbers between 1-10, whereas from tomorrow, the bonus number choices will be between 1 and 12. Curious how this will affect the chances of winning Eurojackpot.
Additionally, all prizes across all the prize tiers will be enlarged as well.
We’re extremely excited to see this lottery continue to grow as that means even bigger winners. There have already been some amazing stories from Eurojackpot winners, like a Croatian woman who in 2014 placed her jackpot winning bet on this lotto because a problem meant that she could not play her usual game. However a favourite Eurojackpot winner was an average 36 year old named Cristina, who worked as a cleaner until she won €90 Million.
Cristina explained how she was just getting back home after an exhausting shift at work when she decided to check the Eurojackpot results. Cristina couldn’t believe her eyes as she double-checked and triple-checked the results over and over again. She was so shocked by what she was seeing that she had to get a second opinion. So she rushed over to her mother’s house in the middle of the night, and got her mother out of bed for a second opinion on what she was seeing. Once it dawned on them that she had really won, they started planning what they would do with it. We’ll call that a very clean win for Cristina.
With the introduction of a bigger Jackpot to aim for, now might be the perfect time to try your luck. Click here if you wish to place bets. Maybe next time we’ll write about you waking up a family member, or jumping for joy in your kitchen and calling up someone special to tell them the good news!
