   EuroJackpot was founded by 18 countries of the European Union, particularly, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania, Hungary, Czechia, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Croatia. It had been conceived by its founders several years before it was launched. The idea of the unique lottery project originated in 2006 but the first draw was held in 2012 which is no wonder considering the global coverage of the official distribution of EuroJackpot lottery tickets. 

 

 

   The first EuroJackpot draw was held on March 23, 2012 with the minimum jackpot amount of €10 million announced by the founders. The minimum amount of the lottery jackpot is still in force and it can grow from draw to draw owing to rollovers up to the highest level of €90 million specified by organizers of the second biggest Euro Lottery.

Weekly draws of EuroJackpot are held on Fridays in Helsinki, the capital of Finland, at 21:00 local time (19:00 GMT). To play EuroJackpot, you have to pick five main numbers from 1 to 50 and two additional ones, so-called “euro numbers”, between 1 and 10, in the electronic form of the lottery ticket.

   One of the reasons why the second biggest All-European lottery in history is so popular is the chance to win the main prize of EuroJackpot for matching 5+1 which corresponds to the second prize category. This chance to win the lottery appears if, after a series of rollovers, the jackpot has reached an amount of €90 million and with no winner it is distributed among the second prize category winners. Apart from the opportunity of winning major prizes of the first and second categories, EuroJackpot participants have a good chance to win prizes of the other ten lower categories. In this case, winning odds start from 1:42 for the minimum prize category for matching two main numbers and the EuroNumber. Thus far, the record-breaking EuroJackpot jackpot in an amount of €90 million was won by a single player from Czechia on May 15, 2015 and by a lucky lottery enthusiast from Germany on October 14, 2016.

Eurojackpot VS
EuroJackpot vs EuroMillions

   Two major European lotteries, EuroJackpot and Euromillions, together cover 27 countries where tickets of Eurolotto can be officially purchased. Despite the similar playing matrix of both lotteries where players have to match five main and two additional numbers, the odds of winning the main prize in EuroJackpot are twice as high as in Euromillions because of a narrower  range of additional EuroNumbers: from 1 to 10 vs 1 to 12 Lucky Stars in Euromillions. Although EuroJackpot is hardly five years old and offers smaller minimum and maximum jackpot amounts and fewer weekly draws compared to Euromillions project, EuroJackpot is still as popular among players as Euromillions owing to its higher winning odds. 
For reference, it should be noted that the only country in the European Union which officially participates in both Euromillions and EuroJackpot is Spain which is traditionally considered the most devoted enthusiast of numerical lotteries.
