Have you ever tried playing the Eurojackpot lottery before? If you haven't yet, this could be the perfect opportunity to try your luck: because this Tuesday, Eurojackpot draws for the fourth time in a row its record jackpot of 120 million euros, accumulating incredible prizes in all its jackpot slots.

Since last Friday's draw on 5 January, Eurojackpot has reached the limit of €120 million, but for the third draw in a row, no bet has been able to match the winning combination. The next attempt will be on Tuesday 16 January in the fourth consecutive draw after reaching its record jackpot.

But why this could be the ideal opportunity to play Eurojackpot, we tell you in today's post!

Eurojackpot: the big European lottery

Eurojackpot was born in 2012 as a major European transnational lottery, being played in a total of 17 countries across the continent. Its draws are held twice a week, every Tuesday and Friday at 21:00h (CET) and its game system consists of selecting 5 numbers from 1 to 50 plus 2 additional numbers from 1 to 12 called EuroNumbers. Due to its similarity to the other major European lottery Euromillions, Eurojackpot has always been considered a sister lottery to the popular lottery.

Eurojackpot Prizes

In each draw, Eurojackpot has a total of 12 prize categories up for grabs. The first prize, also known as the jackpot, is won only by matching the 5 winning numbers and the 2 EuroNumbers of the draw, although it is also possible to win a big prize by matching fewer numbers, as shown in the following list:

How the Eurojackpot jackpot works

The Eurojackpot's first prize, or simply its jackpot, has a guaranteed minimum prize pool of €10 million. This means that whenever someone hits the jackpot, they will restart the next draw with €10 million.

If there are no first prize winners in a draw, the jackpot accumulates, which means that it is maintained for the next draw by adding new sales proceeds. Thus, it can grow from draw to draw, but only up to a maximum jackpot. Currently, Eurojackpot's maximum jackpot is set at ¤120 million.

What happens when the jackpot reaches the €120 million limit?

Once its maximum value is reached, the top prize remains static draw or draw until there is a winner. In these cases, all proceeds from sales for subsequent draws are accumulated in the next prize category, rather than being added to the jackpot amount.

This dynamic can work until someone wins the grand prize. In the event that the second category also reaches the maximum amount of 120 million euros, the subsequent winnings would then be moved to the third category, and so on.

The idea behind this dynamic is to facilitate greater access to eurojackpot prizes. Instead of accumulating forever as is the case with other lotteries, this way it is easier for players to eventually win the accumulated prizes, even if it is with fewer hits.

Conclusion: why you should play for the €120 million jackpot

Every time Eurojackpot reaches its maximum limit of €120 million, the following prize categories start to swell their bankrolls much more than usual, so that even if you match fewer numbers, it's easier to win a big prize. We are talking about jackpots of several million even for smaller categories.

That's why whenever you hit the top jackpot in Eurojackpot, you have a great opportunity to increase your chances of winning a big prize, even without matching all the numbers in the draw. That's why, if you haven't played Eurojackpot yet or were thinking of doing so, we encourage you to try your luck on this ideal opportunity. Best wishes on your next play!
